Total Amount of PPG £198,000
Previous Review September 2016
Next review of this strategy March 2017 – External Review to be led by Marc Rowlands

 

Background and Context of PPG
PPG was introduced for pupils eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point over the last six years with the intention of closing the attainment gap between disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged children.  This is at a rate of £1,320 per child 2016/2017.

There are no guidelines on how this money can be spent, although performance tables now contain information about the impact schools have made on closing the gap between different groups.

Schools must evidence strategies in place to raise the attainment of FSM pupils and what the associated costs are alongside attainment and progress figures for this group of children.

‘The Sutton Trust’ produced a report assessing a range of strategies which could be linked to Pupil Premium funding and could be used to improve attainment based on effectiveness and value for money.  This will be used at East Dene Primary to help strike a balance between effectiveness and cost.

Since 2012 we have been required to publish details of our PPG on our website, which must include:

  • The amount of the school’s allocation
  • Details of how it is intended to be spent
  • Details of how the previous years allocation was spent
  • The effect of the expenditure on the attainment of the pupils the grant was intended for

This should be an overall breakdown of funding and how effective it has proved.

 

Rationale & Key Principles of PPG
Key Principles

At East Dene Primary school we have four key principles which we believe will maximise the impact of our pupil premium spending.

Ø  ALL staff to deliver high quality lessons for ALL pupils.

Ø  ALL children to have strong self-belief, to be ambitious and secure in setting aspirational personal goals.

Ø  Cultural creativity to be embedded in the curriculum, offering ALL children varied and rich experiences which broaden horizons.

Ø  ALL staff to be accountable for the outcomes of ALL children.

We are committed to enabling all pupils to achieve to the best of their abilities.  We have high aspirations and ambitions for our children and we believe that no child should be left behind.  We strongly believe that it is not about where you come from but your passion and thirst for knowledge, and your dedication and commitment to learning that make the difference between success and failure.  We intend to invest our pupil premium grant in better learning and will, therefore, allocate money to raise the aspirations and achievement of our children from more disadvantaged backgrounds. We believe that one of the biggest barriers to learning for children can be poverty of expectation and aspiration – and so we are determined to create a climate that does not limit a child’s potential in any way.

 

Barriers to Future Attainment
In-School Barriers (issues to be addressed in school)
Limited oral language and communication skills for many of our children entering school, including pupil premium children.  This impacts on Reading, Writing and Maths progress in subsequent years.
Lack of parental support with Reading at home slows progress in subsequent years.
Social communication and behavioural difficulties for a small group of children across KS2 (mostly eligible for PP) are having detrimental effect on their academic progress.
Lack of resilience and failing concentration throughout the day due to poor nutrition attributed to many children not having breakfast.
External Barriers (issues which require action outside of school)
Lower attendance and punctuality rates for pupils eligible for PP.  This reduces their school hours and/or prevents them accessing the start of the lessons to fall behind on average.
Lack of meaningful experiences outside of school which impact on aspiration and ambition for future educational choices.
Limited parental interactions impact on language development in its earliest stages.

 

Objectives
To:

  1. Ensure the basic needs of our children are met so that they are able to access learning and experience personal success eg Maslow’s physiological aspects within the hierarchy of needs.
  2. Ensure children attend school regularly and punctually (in line with the school target) and that no child becomes PA
  3. Enable children to have high self-esteem, self-confidence and ambition
  4. Enable children to access school provision in its widest sense eg creative and sporting activities
  5. Provide children with effective feedback so that this helps them gain a clear understanding of what they need to do in order to improve
  6. Involve parents in supporting their children’s learning
  7. Provide children with collaborative learning opportunities eg group intervention support
  8. Provide children with a confident and skilled staff
  9. Support children to make at least good progress so that they are high attaining
  10. To accelerate the progress made in reading, writing and maths for identified groups of pupils

 

  1. To diminish differences between all groups of learners
  2. Provide children with first hand experiences to use as meaningful starting points for learning eg visits and visitors

Total number pupils on roll (excluding F1) 338 (January 2015 Census)
Total number of pupils eligible for PPG  (FSM + 6Ever) 150(January 2015 Census)
Amount PPG received per pupil £1,320
Total Amount of PPG £198,000

 

Background and Context of PPG
PPG was introduced for pupils eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point over the last six years with the intention of closing the attainment gap between disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged children.  This is at a rate of £1,320 per child 2015/2016.

There are no guidelines on how this money can be spent, although performance tables now contain information about the impact schools have made on closing the gap between different groups.

Schools must evidence strategies in place to raise the attainment of FSM pupils and what the associated costs are alongside attainment and progress figures for this group of children.

‘the Sutton Trust’ produced a report assessing a range of strategies which could be linked to Pupil Premium funding and could be used to improve attainment based on effectiveness and value for money.  This will be used at East Dene Primary to help strike a balance between effectiveness and cost.

Since 2012 we have been required to publish details of our PPG on our website, which must include:

  • The amount of the school’s allocation
  • Details of how it is intended to be spent
  • Details of how the previous years allocation was spent
  • The effect of the expenditure on the attainment of the pupils the grant was intended for

This should be an overall breakdown of funding and how effective it has proved.

 

Rationale of PPG
East Dene Primary is committed to enabling all pupils to achieve to the best of their abilities.  We intend to invest our pupil premium grant in better learning and will, therefore, allocate money to raise the aspirations and achievement of our children from more disadvantaged backgrounds.

 

Objectives
To:

  1. Ensure the basic needs of our children are met so that they are able to access learning eg Maslow’s physiological aspects within the hierarchy of needs.
  2. Ensure children attend school regularly and punctually (in line with the school target) and that no child becomes PA

  8. Provide children with a confident and skilled staff
  9. Support children to make good progress so they attain in line with or higher than national expectations
  10. To accelerate the progress made in reading, writing and maths for identified groups of pupils

 

  1. Close the gap between pupils eligible for FSM with other groups of learners
  2. Provide children with first hand experiences to use as meaningful starting points for learning eg visits and visitors

Background and Context of PPG

PPG was introduced for pupils eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point over the last six years with the intention of closing the attainment gap between disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged children.  This is at a rate of £1,300 per child 2014/2015.

There are no guidelines on how this money can be spent, although performance tables now contain information about the impact schools have made on closing the gap between different groups.

Schools must evidence strategies in place to raise the attainment of FSM pupils and what the associated costs are alongside attainment and progress figures for this group of children.

‘the Sutton Trust’ produced a report assessing a range of strategies which could be linked to Pupil Premium funding and could be used to improve attainment based on effectiveness and value for money.  This will be used at East Dene Primary to help strike a balance between effectiveness and cost.

Since 2012 we have been required to publish details of our PPG on our website, which must include:

  • The amount of the school’s allocation
  • Details of how it is intended to be spent
  • Details of how the previous years allocation was spent
  • The effect of the expenditure on the attainment of the pupils the grant was intended for

This should be an overall breakdown of funding and how effective it has proved.

Rationale of PPG

East Dene Primary is committed to enabling all pupils to achieve to the best of their abilities.  We intend to invest our pupil premium grant in better learning and will, therefore, allocate money to raise the aspirations and achievement of our children from more disadvantaged backgrounds.

Objectives

To:

  1. Ensure the basic needs of our children are met so that they are able to access learning e.g. Maslow’s physiological aspects within the hierarchy of needs.
  2. Ensure children attend school regularly and punctually (in line with the school target) and that no child becomes PA
  3. Enable children to have high self-esteem and self-confidence
  4. Enable children to access school provision in its widest sense e.g. creative and sporting activities
  5. Provide children with effective feedback so that this helps them gain a clear understanding of what they need to do in order to improve
  6. Involve parents in supporting their children’s learning
  7. Provide children with collaborative learning opportunities e.g. group intervention support
  8. Provide children with a confident and skilled staff
  9. Support children to make good progress so they attain in line with or higher than national expectations
  10. To accelerate the progress made in reading, writing and maths for identified groups of pupils
  11. Close the gap between pupils eligible for FSM with other groups of learners
  12. Provide children with first hand experiences to use as meaningful starting points for learning e.g. visits and visitors
  13. Provide support for language acquisition and development e.g. children newly arrived to the UK

Pupil Premium for Parents

What is Pupil Premium

Introduced in 2011, the pupil premium is a sum of money given to schools each year by the Government to improve the attainment of disadvantaged children.

This is based on research showing that children from low income families perform less well at school than their peers. Often, children who are entitled to pupil premium face challenges such as poor language and communication skills, less family support, lack of confidence and issues with attendance and punctuality. The pupil premium grant is intended to directly benefit the children who are eligible, helping to diminish differences between them and their classmates.

What Makes a Child Eligible

Schools are given a pupil premium grant for:

  • Children who have qualified for free school meals at any point in the past six years. The school receives £1320 for each of these children. Children don’t currently have to be FSM to be Pupil Premium.
  • Children who have been looked after under local authority care for more than one day. These children are awarded a premium of £1900.

East Dene Pupil Premium Mission

  • ALL staff to deliver high quality lessons for ALL pupils.
  • ALL children to have strong self-belief, to be ambitious and secure in setting aspirational personal goals.
  • Cultural creativity to be embedded in the curriculum, offering ALL children varied and rich experiences which broaden horizons.
  • ALL staff to be accountable for the outcomes of ALL children.

We are committed to enabling all pupils to achieve to the best of their abilities.  We have high aspirations and ambitions for our children and we believe that no child should be left behind.  We strongly believe that it is not about where you come from but your passion and thirst for knowledge, and your dedication and commitment to learning that make the difference between success and failure.  We intend to invest our pupil premium grant in better learning and will, therefore, allocate money to raise the aspirations and achievement of our children from more disadvantaged backgrounds. We believe that one of the biggest barriers to learning for children can be poverty of expectation and aspiration – and so we are determined to create a climate that does not limit a child’s potential in any way.

Some ways we spend our Pupil Premium

  • Extra one-to-one or small-group support for children within the classroom.
  • Employing extra teaching assistants to work with classes.
  • Running catch-up sessions before or after school, for example for children who need extra help with Maths or English.
  • Running a school breakfast club to improve attendance.
  • Funding educational trips and visits.
  • Paying for additional help such as speech and language therapy or family therapy.
