Pupil Premium Grant

Schools are required to publish details of their Pupil Premium allocation, how they plan to spend the allocation in the current year, how the previous year's allocation was spent and the effect of the expenditure on the attainment of those pupils for whom the funding was allocated.

Our school's strategy

School Aims
We aim to ensure that every child leaves Frodingham excited about learning and determined to succeed. We want to equip them with confidence, resilience and a passion for justice and equality. These qualities will enable them to thrive and to champion kindness and fairness at all stages of their future lives.
The targeted and strategic use of Pupil Premium funding will support us in achieving our aims.
Principles
• We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all pupils.
• We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups. This specifically includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are addressed.
• In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who are eligible for free school meals, (or have been eligible in the last 6 years) are socially disadvantaged.
• We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. We therefore allocate Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils that the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.
Pupil Premium funding will be allocated following annual needs analyses which will identify priority classes and groups.
Provision
We have a range of provision in place to support children who belong to vulnerable groups, including those who are socially disadvantaged. This provision has the full support of the Governing Body and includes:
o Providing small group work with an experienced teacher focussed on overcoming gaps in learning
o 1-1 support
o Self regulation strategies supported by the learning mentor and positive strengths work
o Additional teaching and learning opportunities provided by teachers, TAs or external agencies
o Additional support for assessments, training and advice from specialists such as speech therapists, educational psychologists etc.
o Access to therapeutic interventions and advice
o Paying for activities that broaden the curriculum
o Provision of after school activities
All our work funded by the Pupil Premium will be aimed at accelerating progress so that the vast majority of children leave Frodingham at, or above, the national average. We also aim for every child to make progress that is good or better, so that they leave having achieved at least age related expectations or better.

Pupil Premium at Frodingham Infant School

Our priorities for 2018/19 are:

  • To continue to close the gap between pupil premium and non-pupil premium pupils across the school and at national level, especially in writing;
  • To improve the attainment of pupil premium pupils so that more pupils meet their age-related outcomes;
  • To improve the attendance of vulnerable pupil premium pupils;
  • To support the families with emotional/social/behavioural barriers impacting on pupils’ learning;
  • To provide extra-curricular opportunities for all, but in particular ensuring that our vulnerable children take up these opportunities.

     

The provision will include:

  • A Growth Mindset approach to all learning to build resilience, perseverance and self-belief;
  • Support and intervention from an Inclusion manager and Inclusion Assistant with pupils and their families;
  • Provision of extra-curricular learning;
  • Targeted booster teaching sessions taught by the Deputy Head for Y2 pupils;
  • Targeted Inclusion mentor to deliver pastoral provision for vulnerable pupils;
  • Same day interventions targeted at PP pupils.

There is an attainment gap between our pupil premium children and other children

 

Not all pupil premium children are making progress in line with other children

End of KS1

The % of pupils achieving the expected level in the phonics screener in Year 1 is below the national, and therefore the % of pupil premium pupils achieving the phonics screener is below the national.

 

The % of pupil premium pupils achieving the expected level in reading, writing and maths is below the national.

 

The attainment gap between pupil premium pupils and other pupils is widening.

 

Foundation Stage

The % of pupil premium children achieving ARE is below other children.

The above data does not give the full picture; barriers and actions are considered on a termly basis for all children in receipt of Pupil Premium funding.  This highlights where small increments of academic progress have been made, or progress in terms of “soft” data such as behaviour, attitude to learning or self-esteem.

PP data is often more complex as other factors are inevitably involved, such as gender, attendance and whether children have Special Educational Needs (SEND).

 

Attendance

 

Our attendance for 2017/18 was 94.47%.  The attendance of our Pupil Premium pupils was 95.38% and our Looked After Pupils was 97.96%.  EAL pupil's attendance was 92.15%.   We do work closely with families on attendance, with our attendance officer making contact each day with absentees, followed up by meetings and referrals as required. 

On the whole, the PP pupil’s attendance is good, however there are individual cases where the families do need further support to ensure that their child is given the same opportunities to attend school as all other pupils, and families are given support with any difficulties which arise.
