Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Report to Governors and Parents 2018

Overview of the school

Principles

·         We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all of the pupils.

·         We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed.

·         In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged.

·         We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. We reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.

·         Pupil premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis.

Provision

The range of provision the Governors may consider include:

·         Reducing group sizes thus improving opportunities for effective AFL and accelerating progress.

·         Providing small group work focussed on overcoming gaps in learning.

·         1-1 support

·         Additional teaching and learning opportunities provided through trained TAs or external agencies.

·         Providing parents and pupils with a point of contact within school to discuss any external issues that may impact on a child’s learning.

The governors at Stithians School take the education and welfare of all pupils at the school extremely seriously and believe every child should be given the right to reach their full potential. The grant allocation contributes to the costs of providing the above.

Impact of Pupil Premium Spending 2017-18

The schools evaluation of its own performance is rigorous.  Tracking of progress over time for each pupil is thorough and so we can quickly identify any dips and develop sensible strategies and interventions to promote improvement. We have used a large range of data to evaluate the impact of interventions including:

·         A wide range of data is used – achievement data, pupils work, observations, learning walks, case studies and staff, parent and pupil surveys.

·         Assessment Data is collected termly so that the impact of interventions can be monitored regularly.

·         Assessments are closely monitored to ensure they are accurate.

·         Teaching Staff and Support Staff attend and contribute to IEPs each term and the identification of children is reviewed.

·         Regular feedback and performance is given to children and parents.

·         Interventions are adapted or changed if they are not working.

·         Case studies are used to evaluate the impact of pastoral interventions, such as on attendance and behaviour.

·         The Head teacher maintains an overview of pupil premium spending.

·         A governor is given responsibility for pupil premium.
