Pupil Premium is funding allocated to schools by the government. The children who are eligible for this grant are those who are in receipt of free school meals (FSM) or who have been eligible in the last six years of their education (from September 2012). It also includes any children who have parents in the Armed forces or students who are identified as being in foster care (looked after children). Each school has the freedom to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per pupil, is spent, as they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils at their school.

Desired outcome

Chosen action / approach

Estimated impact: Did you meet the success criteria? Include impact on pupils not eligible for PP, if appropriate.

Lessons learned

(and whether you will continue with this approach)

Cost

Improve teacher understanding of vulnerable children

CPD

Staff have a good understanding and knowledge of PP and the children that this impacts on within their care.  Due to staff changes and movement this is something that would be beneficial to school to continue into future year.

Need more individualise package for specific staff.  All very receptive to opportunity for training.

Support vulnerable children emotionally

Work of Learning Mentor across the school

The nurture provision is a highly successful strategy which supports disadvantaged pupils beyond the classroom and helps enable them to access the curriculum

Learning Mentor role has to be flexible to meet the demands of the cohort of children within school and the complexity of the children and parents needs.

Lessons learned

(and whether you will continue with this approach)

Cost

To offer PP children broader experiences then they would normally be able to have

Fund access to music tuition and orchestra club

A large percentage of PP children took up the offer of free lessons which has given an opportunity to experience / develop skills otherwise not have the chance.  Most have continued with lessons into a second year.

This opportunity has been excellent for those accessing as they would normally not receive this tuition.  The opportunity for them to share with their parents in the concerts is immeasurable. Thought needs to be given to possibly funding keyboard loans for those children who want to play the keyboard but cannot afford one at home to practise

£2000

All PP children given opportunity to develop their resilience and determination

Fund PP children to attend outward bound pursuit residential trip

Feedback from children (PP and rest) very positive. Group leaders full of praise for the children, their attitude and behaviour. Excellent way to develop children’s problem solving and resilience.

Funding this activity needs to continue to ensure that all children have access to this opportunity
