Pupil Premium 2019 - 2020

Pupil Premium Strategy Statement

Pupil Premium Grant Allocation for 2019/2020

£315,020

Summary of the main barriers to educational achievement faced by eligible pupils at Woodland Community Primary School

  • Lack of first-hand experience due to limited funds within the family
  • Parents unable to support children with certain aspects of academic learning
  • Parents/carers not working or earning a low income
  • Pupil mobility leading to gaps in learning/education
  • Pupils experiencing significant trauma due to periods of instability and uncertainty, where external agencies such as Children’s Social Care and Family Support Workers are involved in their lives
  • Pupils witnessing and living within households where domestic violence is prevalent
  • English not first or primary language for some pupils and families
  • Pupils acting as carers for parents
  • Children with Special Educational Needs, complex Special Educational Needs or Statements/EHCPs
  • Poor attendance and punctuality

How we intend to spend the Pupil Premium Grant to address barriers and the reasons for this approach

  • Through our Charging & Remissions Policy, to pay for all visits, visitors, trips and experiences that offer first-hand experiences that support our curriculum and pupils capacity to access it successfully and understand it.  Such experiences also support the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our children. For example, residential trips and pantomime visits.
  • School provide many extra-curricular clubs that support the health, wellbeing and academic development of pupils.  Pupils and families are identified and signposted to particular clubs and activities.
  • All classes have at least one additional adult to support teaching and accelerate learning, with a particular focus on PP pupils and their progress.  Interventions for emotional, social and academic development are run each afternoon based upon clear and precise data analysis and tracking. For example, Better Reading Programme; Numicon; EAL language support and Forest School
  • We offer a Breakfast Club, run by school staff which is heavily subsidised by the school.  This allows parents on low incomes to work outside of normal school hours
  • Tailored support for pupils who require further social, emotional and behavioural aspects of their learning and development.  We offer many programmes such as Play Therapy; Speech Bubbles and Forest Schools.
  • We have a Child Welfare Lead and Home School Liaison Officer who support our children and families around all matters relating to attendance and punctuality.  This includes first day absence calls; attendance panels and liaising with other agencies.
  • The Child Welfare Lead and Home Liaison Officer provide a family service in the school library after school to improve engagement with pupil premium children and families.
  • Our Deputy Head teachers provide targeted academic support for Year 6 and EYFS pupil premium pupils, closing the attainment gap between PP and all pupils whilst improving progress.
  • A dedicated teacher to be used to set up an intervention programme tailored towards pupil premium pupils who are working below national expectation and pupils with social and emotional needs.
  • A dedicated Year 5 teacher to close the attainment gap for pupils, with a particular focus on PP pupils, within the core curriculum.
  • Pupil premium pupils in Year 6 to receive 1:1 or 2:1 tuition from a qualified teacher to support them in achieving their full academic potential.

 

How we will measure the impact of the Pupil Premium

  • Clear tracking of the attainment and achievement of all pupils, with a particular focus on that of Pupil Premium children
  • All teachers to clearly identify in all their planning, assessments and evaluations, their provision for PP pupils in their classes and groups
  • Registers for all extra-curricular clubs and the attendance of PP children tracked at this
  • Language proficiency tests and assessments for EAL pupils
  • Termly lesson observations by HT and DHTs of all classes to focus specifically on the progress of PP pupils within and across lessons.  Feedback being shared and actions drawn from these to inform future development work
  • Pupils who access any form of Nurture Provision to be tracked academically through the school’s assessment system, but also to be tracked socially and emotionally through the use of Boxhall Profiling and the Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaires.
