Pupil Premium Impact Report 2017/18

Pupil Premium Strategy 2018/19

 

 

Pupil Premium

 

The Government believes that Pupil Premium is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle the disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it the most.

 

The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’). Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than 6 months, and children of service children personnel.

At Our Lady of Grace we pride ourselves on the individual curriculum we are able to offer all of our children. The introduction of pupil premium has enabled us to do this even better.

 

 

 

In 2018/2019 the school received £46,500 in pupil premium money. Due to this we have employed a senior teacher for 1 days a week and given her the responsibility of coordinating Pupil Premium throughout the school (£9309.50). (Mrs Stonier mpiva@olognewman.co.uk can be contacted for any queries related to how the school spends its resources). We are also able to continue running the better reading program. This runs for 12hrs each week of Teaching Assistant time. (£5,580). In addition to this, we employ a member of support staff to work between 8am and 9am. Children for whom Pupil Premium provides support are being invited to the breakfast club for free where they receive a free breakfast and then a Teaching assistant will work with these children supporting their reading (£3,121 - Teaching Assistant) + (£7,020 - Breakfast Club). We have full time teaching assistants (including one HLTA) in each class and these have directed hours to work with identified PP children (£4,782). In addition, we employed a Teaching assistant who will works 4 days of the week focusing support on children with SEN and children who are entitled to pupil premium. This will mean working towards targets set out in RAP (Raising Achievement) plans set by class teachers (£17,479). In addition, we offer financial support for those children who are entitled to pupil premium with trips, after school clubs and peripatetic music lessons. In total, we are spending £47,292 on additional support for our pupil premium children.

Children with whom pupil premium is attached are welcome to ask the school for support with school trips and events.

Half-Termly monitoring of FSM children ensure that any areas of concern are identified quickly and strategies put into place to address any areas of concern.

Data for individual children is monitored and annual reports are produced.
