Pupil Premium

In September 2012, the DfE made funding available to allow financially disadvantaged pupils to make accelerated progress compared to their peers.

 

The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers. The children who are eligible for Pupil Premium funding are a diverse group of children with a wide range of abilities, interests and needs. It would be unfair to categorise these pupils as either less able or less motivated. However, national statistics show that this group of children is less likely to leave school with good qualifications. The pupil premium grant is used at All Saints’ to lower the risk that these children will not reach their potential.

 

The All Saints’ community in Whetstone is very diverse and the difference between the most and the least affluent is greater than in most schools. The barriers to learning for disadvantaged pupils include limited access to:

 

  • rich educational experiences outside school

  • extra tuition where children have not understood something at school

  • access to expensive clubs and activities such as music teaching, adventurous activities

 

At All Saints’ we use the pupil premium funding to help overcome these barriers.

Overall summary of strengths and areas for development for the next academic year

We use a broad range of strategies at All Saints’ to cater for the diverse needs of children who receive pupil premium funding. Tutoring ensures that children who are at risk of not meeting expected standards or are making slow progress are given the extra help they need. This is working well and will continue in 2017/18. Support from teaching assistants in class ensure that children are on task and aware of their personal learning journey. This is reflected in the better progress made by children who receive pupil premium in most subjects in KS1 and KS2. The attainment of children who receive pupil premium is higher than the national average in all subjects except maths by the time the children leave for secondary school.

 

We also focus on children’s aspirations, attitude to learning and self-confidence. The use of mentoring, behaviour support and enrichment activities ensures that children who receive pupil premium try their hardest to be the best they can be.

In 2017/18 we are aiming to strengthen our pastoral support for children to overcome barriers to learning such as a lack of engagement, poor home/ school links and a lack of resources. The Deputy Headteacher will be leading ‘reach out’ sessions including ‘stop and chat’ coffee mornings and school based courses for all parents but especially targeting children on pupil premium. We are introducing the Prince William Award for children in year 4 (the year group with most pupil premium children) and we are offering refurbished laptops to children who need access to technology.
