Pupil Premium 2014-2015

Principles

Pupil Premium is allocated to schools based on the number of children who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals, whose parents serve in the Armed Forces and children who have been looked after in local authority care continuously for more than six months.

 

The purpose of the Pupil Premium is to help schools to provide targeted support for vulnerable children- not necessarily just children who qualify for FSM.

 

“It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools…. is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.” (Source – DfE website)

 

The funding is therefore given to schools to spend as they think best, although there is a requirement to publish online how this money is spent.

In the 2014 to 2015 financial year, schools will receive:

  • £1300 for each eligible primary-aged pupil

Leadership and Management

The headteacher oversees the organisation of all additional provision.  This is done by the SENCO, Behaviour lead, Curriculum lead and the class teachers.

The progress of Pupil Premium pupils is currently tracked by the headteacher and Pastoral lead. After January 2015 the provision will be managed and monitored by the Inclusion Manager.

A termly report is prepared for Governors who monitor the overall provision. Closing the gap for our Pupil premium children continues to be the key focus of the School Improvement Plan, with actions identified and tracked by the Senior Leadership Team through the monitoring process and pupil progress meetings.  All class teachers keep track of Pupil Premium children and are focused on ‘closing the gap’.

2014-2015 Sports Grant

As a school we have been allocated £8830 to improve the quality of P.E and sport in school.

The funding should be used to improve the quality and breadth of P.E and Sport provision.  As a school we made the decision to try to develop the quality and provision of P.E lessons and sport within the school.  The aim is to employ specialist P.E Teachers or qualified coaches (through Greenacre Sports Partnership) to work alongside teachers in lessons to help enrich their subject knowledge and confidence in P.E.  A key focus for us this year is to increase the amount of participation time within physical activities.  By working together it allows us to provide the appropriate opportunities for further development and participation in P.E and school sport.

Swimming lessons, hire of pool and transport are subsidised.

 

The allocation of money we have available has been identified to be spent in the following ways:
