Pupil Premium Spending

Pupil Premium Expenditure 2016 – 17

 

 

What is the Pupil Premium?

 Pupil Premium is additional funding to help schools close the attainment gap between children from low-income and other disadvantaged families and their peers. If a child is or has been eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) at any point over the last 6 years, or is being looked after in care (LAC) or through adoption, the school receives an amount per head within their budget. For the academic year 2016-17 this amount for children from Year One to Year six stands a £1,320 per pupil. For those who are currently under the care of the local authority an addition payment is made of £1,900 per pupil. The provision of pupil premium  is also made for children who have a parent in the armed forces.

Our approach to Pupil Premium

Chantry Primary Academy is committed to improving the life chances of all our pupils so that they achieve as well as they can whilst in our care. Our aim is for all children to leave Chantry with the skills, attitudes and behaviours that will enable them to play a full and active role in their next setting and beyond. We recognise that some pupils may require additional support to help them achieve this aim. Chantry Primary Academy is committed to ensuring maximum progress for all groups of children and strives to close any gaps. We have a clear, strategic approach to the use of specific Pupil Premium funding and plans are integrated into wider school support and improvement strategies. These are monitored and evaluated regularly and data analysis ensures that the correct support and strategies are identified to maximise progress.

Review of strategy

(The Review is completed by those staff responsible for it – and will include data where appropriate.)

Extra teacher in Year 6

Smaller class sizes in Year 6

£40,620

Three classes of 20 pupils to allow for more targeted support.

S. Pollard

This was and continues to be a successful use of pupil premium funding. The Smaller classes enable the teachers to focus in on the learning of individuals and close the gaps within learning rapidly.

Attendance mentor

To target children where attendance is a problem

£29,200

Pupils in school and making progress.

Support at home if pupils cannot attend school.

C. Bateman

This was and continues to be effective - Currently there are 69 children on role where attendance has or continues to be a concern which hinders learning; 22 of these (32%) of these children are pupil premium children. Pupil progress meeting show the attendance team supports the learning of these children by ensuring they are in on time ro have work at home if appropriate

Extra Family Worker

Support vulnerable families

£16,700

Support with parenting

Signpost financial support

Courses, empowering parents etc.

C. Bordiak

This support was and still is very valid and effective as can be seen in number and range of parents and families that are supported by the team – this would not be possible without the provision of this extra Family Worker. Without this Family Worker the school would be unable to offer the range of support it does. The provision also allows vulnerable parents and children to better access opportunities and assessments from other professionals and agencies for educational purposes e.g. attending Edwin Lobo appointments and completing paperwork. Chantry is now hosting the West Area Partnership Meetings for Family Workers. At a recent Social Care meeting praise was given to Chantry and the provision and support that it gives its parents.

Pastoral support

‘Flying squad’ behaviour support

£32,961

Pupils to be supported with their behaviour in order for them to be able to access learning and make progress.

B. Rowe

We have 7 full-time Behaviour Support Staff. We currently have 28 pupils whose behaviour is monitored by the team on a daily basis (traffic light charts). 8 of these benefit from 1:1 support either full-time or part time

 

All pupils are making good progress with their behaviour / social skills. From a sample (8 randomly selected – not very scientific at this stage!!) it can be concluded that the behaviour of this group was green (outstanding) 89.1% of the time during the Autumn Term. Zero exclusions. No fewer than 50 pupils are supported throughout the week during the lunchtime session (Yr 1-6). No of incidents logged on SIMS during Aut 2 (180) decreased by 27% when compared with Aut 1 (252). Am hoping that this trend will continue throughout the year.

TA time

2 days of TA time per week across the school to reflect class support for 40% of pupils eligible for Pupil Premium

£93,000

Appropriate support for pupils at all levels in the classroom.

C. Bordiak

Each class within the school has a dedicated teaching assistant, this continues to positively impact on learning, providing support and guided groups which enable teachers to plan for misconceptions to be addressed, learning consolidated and pre-teaching to occur when appropriate. Although this could be more effective with some TA training and support. This academic year all TAs will undertake training for Growth-Mind-set and SEN Training from NASEN to support.

Reading Intervention

‘Read On’ intervention

£500

Improved reading outcomes across the school.

C. Bordiak

24 pupils have begun to access ‘Read On’ during the first half of Autumn Term, 11 of those (46%) are pupil premium children. All pupils are participating well with progress being reported by class teachers.

1-1 intervention (maths)

Teachers to support specific children in Years 2 and 6

£48,242

Improved maths outcomes in end of Key Stage outcomes.

L. Curtis

Within both key stages this proved to be and effective use of money, with KS1 outcomes showing that 63% of children were at the expected standard and 67% of children were working at this level within KS2. Whilst KS1 was lower than anticipated those children targeted for support did show progress.

1-1 intervention (English)

Teachers to support specific children in Year 2

£16,000

 

Improved English outcomes in end of Key Stage 1 outcomes.

J. Liddie

Within the last academic year Jane Stephenson and Mandy Stables continued to take some of our Pupil Premium children out for interventions – this impacted positively for the children’s confidence. Additionally Emma Hardy also worked with some of the children within the classrooms and in small groups with key literacy objectives - diminishing the difference for those disadvantaged children.

Extra-curricular maths intervention

Third Space online extra-curricular support for Year 6

£4,975

Improved maths outcomes for 27 targeted PP pupils.

S. Pollard

We will continue to buy ‘Third Space Learning’ for pupils following last year’s success with the program. We will continue to mostly target pupil premium children. However our aim is for the sessions to become more effective by asking class teachers to take an overview of the learning by choosing the personalised sessions – rather than a member of SLT. All of those who were entered for the program last year were working below the expected standard for their age and stage. Of those 27 children – 15 of them completed the KS2 SATs test with a score of 100 or more (56%). Of those who missed - 7 of them fell within the scaled scored between either 98 or 99; meaning they were less than 10 marks off the expected standard – showing a good progress.

Easter School

Year 6 pupils to attend English and maths sessions for four mornings of the Easter break 4 – 7/4/15

 

£5,000

Pupils better prepared for Key Stage 2 tests.

S. Pollard

Easter school was a positive use of the funding for all pupils. All year 6 pupils attended the majority of sessions – which supported the children in the crucial weeks leading up to the KS2 assessments. Children built on and explored new learning. The differentiated groups supported out lower attainers in effectively preparing for the tests. Next year our aim will be to further support our more able learners within these sessions to promote mastery and greater depth thinking.

Summer School

Individual pupils to be targeted for support during last week of summer break

£2,400

Improved progress for pupils who are not meeting age-related expectations.

S. Pollard

Due to planned building work (planned after this budget was assigned) this did not take place. However in the past it has proven to be very effective in the past and will this year take place.

Marking and Feedback

Marking and feedback policy to reflect the importance of high quality feedback and response. Teachers to be trained to use stickers to support with marking

£1,000

Pupils have a clear understanding of what they can and what they need to do to make progress.

S. Pollard

Marking and feedback plays and important role at chantry. It continues to be an effective way that teachers monitor progress of all pupils. Give explicit feedback and steps for improvement. This has been further developed this year with the implementation of the left hand page. A space for children to leave a response that is both detailed and as valued as the classwork itself.

Staff training

Staff booked onto training to ensure that they are up-to-date with current practice

£2,570

 

Improved subject knowledge leading to improved outcomes.

C. Bateman

Teachers within year 6 attended the accelerating progress course run by the Local Education Authority and this proved successful for the whole team

Assessment resources

Staff trained to use assessment system

£1,825

Pupil Premium progress tracked by teaching staff alongside whole class/cohort

S. Pollard

Assessment systems at Chantry are strong, the use of programs such as Target tracker continue to enable staff to clearly measure, plan for and identify progress, supporting all learners in making appropriate progress across the school.

Fruit and Milk

Fruit available for all PP pupils in Key Stage 2 during snack time.

Milk available for all PP pupils during lunchtime

£7,000 (Actual cost)

Improved attendance as part of a healthier diet.

J. Badstuber

The health and well-being of our children continues to be benefited from this. Children eating a nutritionally balanced diet are less likely to be absent from school and more likely to have the energy and capacity to learn with their basic needs being met.

Financial support for school visits

Parents offered 50% discounted places on school trips

£13,000

Pupil Premium/Free School Meal children given opportunities to take part in experiences which will have a positive impact on their imagination, vocabulary and outcomes.

J. Kelly

Across the school children whom are entitled for free school meals receive support with financing trips. This continues to enhance the learning of those children – whom without the funding would miss out on the many opportunities which our school plans to enrich and diversify the curriculum. The schools implementation of WOW days and Fantastic finishes (trips and enrichment opportunities) is often raised as an area of success within pupil progress meetings showing the children continue to be inspired to further their thinking and learning following these trips.

Financial support for residential visits

Parents offered 50% discounted places on school trips

£3,000

Pupil Premium/Free School Meal children are given opportunities to take part in experiences which will have a positive impact on their imagination, vocabulary and outcomes.

J. Kelly

Free school meal children continued to receive support with residential trips, and this continues to enrich their learning. Across the school the expenditure was as detailed below:

·         Total Land and Wave subsidies from Pupil Premium = £700. The number of children attending who were discounted were 6 pupils out of 30 (so 20%)

·         Total Kingswood subsidies from Pupil Premium = £1070. The number of children attending who were discounted were 10 pupils out of 34 (so 29%)

·         Total Dell Farm subsidies from Pupil Premium  = £116. The number of children attending who were discounted were 4 pupils out of 40 (so 10%)

·         Total Bewilderwood subsidies from Pupil Premium  = £52. The number of children attending who were discounted were 2 pupils out of 20 (so 10%)

·         Total amount of Pupil Premium funding spent on residential trips and experiences in 2015/2016 = £1938

Breakfast club

Parents offered discounted places where needed

£200

Improved attendance and ready to learn following a healthy breakfast. Development of children’s social skills and supporting parents with getting back to work.

J. Kelly

This continues to support parents and in-turn the children of our school enabling them to provide care and breakfast for their children so that they can begin their working day. For many of children breakfast club enables them to begin their day within a structured setting which positively impacts on their readiness to learn as the school day begins.

 

Care club

Parents offered discounted places where needed

£200

Development of children’s social skills and supporting parents with getting back to work.

J. Kelly

This continues to support parents and in-turn the children of our school enabling them to provide care for their children as they return to work or attend multi- professional meetings to support their children with their education.

Uniform

Parents offered discounted uniform when needed

£50

Pupils ready to learn and fit in with their peers.

C. Bateman

Parents received support with uniforms which ensure that children are in school, feeling part of the learning community and ready to learn.

Transport

Parents offered support as needed

£100

Pupils able to attend school when situations arise (e.g. homelessness) that could lead to problems in getting to school.

C. Bateman

Parents received support with transport where appropriate. This did and still does ensure that children are in school, feeling part of the learning community and ready to learn on time – this impacts on children being ready to learn.
