Pupil Premium

Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.

Lyne and Longcross CofE (Aided) Primary School with Nursery

 

Pupil Premium

 

Pupil premium was introduced by the Government in April 2011. It is allocated to children from low-income families and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months. The Government decided in 2012 that eligibility for Pupil Premium would be extended to pupils who were eligible to low income family benefits at any point in the last six years.

 

Disadvantaged children are monitored carefully through regular pupil progress meetings and support and interventions put in place where deemed most appropriate.

To support families with home issues in order to create a calm home life and strong communication between home and school.

HSLW support

Many of our underachieving children are facing difficulties at home e.g. housing, separate families, emotional anxieties which cause the children to present as anxious or angry or withdrawn at school. Use of the HSLW allows us to support families at home with issues not directly linked to education but have an impact.

Previous Academic Year

 

  1. 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

Increased staff confidence in delivering interventions.

ELSA training.

TA feels confident in planning and running sessions to improve the emotional well being of children.

Weekly sessions are in place.

Initial feedback from parents and staff is extremely positive with less incidents of friendship issues at playtime and children able to carry out strategies for when they are anxious independently.

This approach will continue. There are many children who have now been identified as potentially benefitting from this approach.

£750 training costs.

Cost

To allow identified pupils to access specific interventions in reading, writing and maths in order to catch up with age related expectations.

FFT sessions

1st Class @ Number sessions

1:1 programme to access an intervention entry point.

100% of targeted children in year 2 caught up to achieve end of year expectations in reading following the FFT programme.

 

50% of targeted Year 3 children and 33% of targeted Year 2 children caught up to achieve end of year expectations following the 1st Class @ Number programme.

 

80% of targeted children in Year 1 and 2 on the 1:1 curriculum met or exceeded their individual target.

40% of this group are now able to access FFT and 1st Class @ Number.

FFT is working very well. An additional adult is to be trained to run these sessions as they are proving very effective.

 

The TA leading 1st Class @ Number had received internal training rather than directly from the provider so it has been decided full external training is necessary to make the intervention more effective.

 

The 1:1 curriculum is showing signs of being effective and will continue.

£1935

To support families with home issues in order to create a calm home life and strong communication between home and school.

HSLW support

The HSLW worked with 5 families in school across the year supporting with a range of issues.

A 6 week drawing and talking programme was accessed by 2 children.

Weekly 1:1 sessions have taken place supporting children with emotional issues.

Feedback from parents shows they have felt supported with accessing various programmes and professionals to support their children and their home life.

This approach is extremely valuable as it allows external barriers to learning be tackled in a supportive and effective way.
