Pupil Premium

The government introduced Pupil Premium with the aim of increasing social mobility, reducing the attainment gap between the highest and lowest achieving pupils nationally and enabling more pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds to attend university.

Pupil Premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals.

Pupil Premium is additional funding received by schools for each pupil from disadvantaged families or background. The funding brings in £1320 per pupil. It is allocated to schools, based on the number of children who are known to have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years. This is one of the government’s key educational policies. It is based on the findings that show that, as a group, children who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in time, have consistently lower attainment than those who have never been eligible. It also includes children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months and children where a parent serves in the armed forces.

D’Eyncourt is a one and a half form entry primary school without a nursery class. Currently there are over 316 pupils on roll. It is situated in an area where the deprivation quintile is highest 40% (0.3) therefore only 18.6% of our pupils receive pupil premium funding with only 12.5% of the pupils being eligible for free school meals. Around 16% of pupils are from minority ethnic backgrounds. Furthermore, a significant proportion of other children are just above the threshold or unable to apply for free school meals. Even if a pupil does not have a school dinner, it is vital for a school to know if they are entitled to a free school meal

Schools are free to determine how they spend this funding but are obliged to publish information about how the money is spent.

We have worked hard to ensure that the maximum number of pupils benefit from this funding.

How Impact will be measured?

The school will evaluate the impact on each pupil from termly Teacher Assessment. This will be recorded and discussed as part of our Termly Pupil Progress meetings, the results of which will be fed in the following term’s Intervention provision.

We will measure progress and attainment in reading, writing and maths as a result of intervention and additional support.

Outcomes- Children not making the expected progress will be given additional interventions. Progress/Attainment will be tracked termly for PP children.

Desired outcome Chosen action / approach What is the evidence and rationale for this choice? How will you ensure it is implemented well? Staff lead When will you review implementation?
Close the gap between PP pupils and Other Pupils Ratio of staff will ensure quality first teaching across the School. 2x HLTA will be used each morning to target and support individuals or groups of children to close the gap. We are keen to ensure there are no in school or external gaps. 2x HLTA can be effectively used to ensure progress and attainment is improving across the school. External Review Spring term 2019
