Pupil Premium Spending and Impact

Pupil Premium Spending and Impact

Our pupil premium is used to support a range of activities and resources, which support students, whose achievement or whose progress is lower than it should be.

The 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 has been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point over the past 6 years or has been looked after for one day or more (Child Looked After), the school receives an amount per head within their budget. Our funding formula is aimed at the whole child.

The activities and resources provided for these pupils target:

  • academic achievement, through catch-up interventions, stretch and challenge interventions, boosters to target key skills, and essential revision books to support these pupils at home;
  • specific learning needs that cannot be addressed through quality-first teaching, such as SALT and a Dyslexia professional, and
  • pupils’ social and emotional well-being and their cultural enhancement through the subsidy of school trips and the Year 6 residential.

Of the numerous interventions provided to students, some of the interventions include:

  • Deployment of HLTA resources for intensive catch up work for Maths and English in Year 6
  • Subsidies all school trips so that all pupil premium children will have at least six day trips a year to extend their curriculum
  • Subsidy for the Year 6 residential trip
  • Booster class after school for improvement in key skills in Maths and Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation
  • Two full-day revision classes during the Easter half term
  • Phonics workshop with parents to enable strong home school learning and free resources for them to use at home
  • Phonics booster
  • Additional SEN practitioners
  • Speech and Language (SLA) -one day on site therapist
  • Subsidy of Breakfast Club
  • Subsidy of school uniform

Achievement and Progress of Pupils eligible for the Pupil Premium Grant – This was reviewed in July 2019

Main Barriers to Achievement

Children entitled to free school meals encompass the full spectrum of needs and backgrounds in the school community, including white and minority pupils, looked after children, most able pupils and those with special educational needs (SEN).

Consequently, the barriers and challenges that disadvantaged pupils face can be complex and varied- there is no single difficulty faced by all. Barriers can lie within schools, with learners and their families. It is, therefore, important to analyse where pupils have multiple barriers to learning to ensure a good, deep understanding of children and their families.

Other barriers to achievement can be if pupils have suffered early trauma and experience on-going attachment issues- this includes pupils with behavioural development. Some pupils may have medical conditions which can impact on attendance and thus learning.

How Will the Impact be Measured?

We monitor attainment and progress on a termly basis through pupil progress meetings which will inform next steps for learning, lesson observation, book looks and learning walk.

We then intervene to address individual learning needs. The gap between our disadvantaged attaining more or are on track with the rest of their peers. Teachers will use evidenced based interventions- before and after impact. At Hatcham Temple Grove we also use end of year tests which also inform teacher assessment throughout the year.

How Successful Schools Raise the Attainment

  • Promote an ethos of attainment for all pupils, rather than stereoptyping disadvantaged pupils as a group with less potential to succeed;
  • Have an individualised approach to addressing barriers to learning and emotional support, at an early stage, rather than providing access to generic support and focusing on pupils nearing their end-of-key-stage assessments;
  • Focus on high quality teaching first rather than on bolt-on strategies and activities outside school hours;
  • Focus on outcomes for individual pupils rathre than on providing strategies;
  • Deploy the best staff to support disadvantaged pupils; develop skills and roles of teachers and
  • Teaching Assistancts, rather than using additional staff who do not know the pupils well;
  • Make decisions based on data and respond to evidence, using frequent, rather than one-off assessment and decision points;
  • Have clear, responsive leadership: setting ever higher aspirations and devolving responsibility for raising attainment to all staff, rather than accepting low aspirations and variable performance.

From DfE publication: Supporting the Attainment of Disadvantaged Pupils; Articulating Success and Good Practice Research Report: November 2015

Our school strives to raise the attatinment of disadvantaged pupils as part of our commitment to raise academic standards of all our pupils. We ensure quality teaching for all, ensure that pupils' attendance is good and provide behaviour and emotional support to pupils- as necessary. We make every efford to understand every pupil as an individual and tailor intervention programmes accordingly.
