Pupil Premium

What is it?

The pupil premium is funding allocated to schools for the specific purpose of boosting the attainment of pupils from low-income families. Funding is based on children who have registered for a free school meal at any point in the last 6 years, children that are in care or adopted and children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces.

Why has it been introduced?

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between disadvantaged children and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most. Whilst schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit we are required to publish online information about how we have used the Premium and the impact it is having.

Previous Academic Year

2015-2016

         i.        Quality of teaching for all

Desired outcome

Chosen action / approach

Estimated impact: Did you meet the success criteria? Include impact on pupils not eligible for PP, if appropriate.

Lessons learned

(and whether you will continue with this approach)

Cost

1a To improve the literacy of PP pupils

Employ a literacy TA to deliver sessions to the PP pupils working below expected norms

Reading age scores of the PP cohort to improve by an average of 1 year across the academic year

Average 10 month gain per student. This was partially successful but there was insufficient evaluation of data and co-ordination of different strategies.

This role has been changed in order to ensure greater focus upon rapid intervention following data collections.

20K

1b To raise aspirations of PP pupils through a programme of curricular and extra-curricular activities

Employability co-ordinator in place to increase participation and curriculum impact including targeted intervention

NEETs for PP to be below Derby City average. Attainment outcomes of PP students at 40% 5AC in E&M

NEET (1&) is 1% below DCC average but sustained EET amongst PP cohort is low compared to NA. Roles will be reviewed in order to allow sharper intervention and a greater focus on higher aspirations amongst particularly the more able PP cohort.

       ii.        Targeted support

Desired outcome

Chosen action / approach

Estimated impact: Did you meet the success criteria? Include impact on pupils not eligible for PP, if appropriate.

Lessons learned

(and whether you will continue with this approach)

Cost

2a To supply a programme of cognitive behaviour mentoring

 

 

 

 

 

 

Employing a full-time mentor

Increased attendance and reduction in incidents of classroom disruption.

Looking for a 25% reduction in exclusions by PP pupils

 

 

 

Whilst there was some success in exclusions reducing, the proportion of PP students contributing to wards exclusions did not fall. This work now needs a greater focus on early intervention at Ks3 and a more comprehensive coverage of the PP cohort.

£30K

2b To improve the attendance of PP pupils

Employ an attendance officer and attendance mentoring. Attach a non-teaching HOY to year groups in order to address problematic attendance problems

Attendance of PP pupils is in line with  the National Average

Intervention needs to be focused more sharply and the school needs to listen more to the underlying causes of P.A.  This includes- improving the quality of teaching and making our culture more inclusive.

 

£85K

2c Intervention specifically for targeted Yr11 pupils

Introduction of a Saturday School. Commit to 6 means pupils staying for an extra period. One to one mentoring for underachieving pupils

No a positive progress 8 score for PP pupils was not achieved. 64% / 48% for E&M. English exceeded the target of 58% but Maths did not reach the target of 57%. Both progress measures well ahead of the N.A.

Narrow focus on those pp students who are most vulnerable in EBacc and open buckets. Maintain and sharpen focus so that it impacts upon achievement in open buckets.

The school will ensure greater QA of this area of work and will ensure that co-ordination of this activity allows greater focus on the PP population.

      iii.        Other approaches

Desired outcome

Estimated impact: Did you meet the success criteria? Include impact on pupils not eligible for PP, if appropriate.

Lessons learned

(and whether you will continue with this approach)

Cost

3a To improve the conditions and facilities for completing homework for PP pupils

New parent porthole. New fully staffed after school club. Re-siting of the LRC to promote greater use of ICT and literacy resources

All pupils had access to homework support sessions. Sessions were extended to include pre-school and lunchtimes. PP take up was high.

Homework club is well used. Our QA of student voice makes clear that students are using this facility as a quiet place to do homework but the tracking of participation needs to be strengthened.  Student voice activities also make clear that we need to be able to provide breakfast for a number of students.

30K

3b Extension of counselling facilities in school for PP pupils

Counselling facilities extended to remove barriers to pupils abilities to access learning due to external barriers

PP pupil exclusions are below the National average and there was a reduction in the number of referrals to CAMHS

This has had limited impact upon a broad range of students. Will continue but funded from school budget.
