Pupil Premium

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

Pupil Premium Temple Sutton Primary school and Children’s Centre

 

The school is at pains to state that the plans relating to the allocation of funds spans two academic school years (summer term for one, end of school year data, and two terms of the new school year for which data does not yet exist). Therefore the decisions to fund current or future activities is based on a medium to longer term strategy of securing better outcomes for all pupils and in pursuit of narrowing the attainment gap for those in most need.

 

The amount of the school’s allocation from the Pupil Premium Grant in respect of the previous year (2012/13) £146,050 allocation based on approx. £660 per FSM (every 6)

Details of how the previous academic year’s allocation was spent.

 

A large proportion of previous budgets was taken up in setting up a 3 year budget plan that would eradicate a long standing deficit.

 

The effect of this expenditure on the educational attainment of those pupils at the school in respect of whom grant funding was allocated.

 

Evidence from RAISAEonline for that cohort shows gaps at the end of Key Stage 1 being -2.7 reading, -2 writing and -1.7 for maths while this is a significant gap it mirrors national data.

 

The data for children at the end of Key Stage 2 shows, a year on year, reduction in the attainment gap (page 50-56) % achieving Level 4 in English and maths has fallen from -20% (2011) to -15% (2012) and -9% (2013). The reality of this data is that while the gap seems to have fallen significantly the fall in overall standards in 2012 was a key element. The school continues to look at trends and opportunities to close the gap further year on year.

The effect of this expenditure on the educational attainment of those pupils at the school in respect of whom grant funding was allocated.

 

Those elements marked with an * are decisions made by the Governors in pursuit of the community vision that Temple Sutton has a wide and known passion and desire to fulfil. The precise measure in terms of attainment and progress are not immediately quantifiable but case studies and document evidence is available to say that these measures have a huge impact upon how families and children perceive the experiences given to them as improved life chances and better outcomes.

 

The school will begin to track some of the qualitative data from a base year of 2013/14 with:

Case studies of family and children interventions and outcomes.

Numbers of participants in sport, music and the arts, including outcomes for those funded by the grants. (Diving talent identification letter etc.)

 

Below is a current outline of the available data relating to tracking the gap between those who receive Pupil Premium (PP) and those who don’t non-pupil premium. (NPP). The measures are limited somewhat to the data sets available; both school wide, Local Authority wide and Nationally. Where we can we have tried to interpret that data and give a fair and honest reflection of policy and practice.

 

Action
HLTA salary 4th group in year 5/6 to support Literacy/Numeracy   £13,000
2TA’s salary support for year 6/5 Narrowing the gap   £ 20,000

 

Outcome
Attainment measured by APS at the end of year 6 has risen for GPand S, reading, writing and maths for those receiving PP in the last two, often 3 years and while Non PP children’s progress has risen the gap in those years has narrowed in all subjects and significantly below Local Authority levels.

 

Year 5 data for attainment is less secure with fewer sessions and interventions planned or delivered. Attainment for PP children in this cohort declined slightly in reading and writing while NPP children saw accelerated progress and better outcomes leaving a slight widening of the attainment gap but still in all three subjects well below LA data.

 

In year 4 there is a similar story with fewer consistent interventions planned and often less rigour used to select and target learners. The pattern is best summed up by similar attainment levels for PP children but with better attainment for NPP children hence a widening of the gap that will need to be reversed as these children enter the upper school.

In year 3 there is some evidence to suggest that attainment for PP children is rising in line with NPP children and therefore the gap is pretty steady apart from a fall in reading.

 

Action
2TA’s salary support for year 1/2 Narrowing the gap   £ 20,000

 

Outcome
End of year 2 data shows only a small gap in attainment across the core subjects, with PP outperforming NPP in Reading but marginally behind in Maths 0.8 and 1.2 points. School data shows that the gap while wider in EYS and year 1 closes in year 2 for both reading and maths were the support is targeted.

 

Actions
Support the function of breakfast club (vulnerable families)   £ 2,000
Support the function of clubs and activities   £ 5,000

 

Outcomes
Pupils arrive in a better state to receive learning; they have been fed and interact with others, helping to develop their life long social skills.
Pupil’s attendance is rising and tracking our vulnerable children supports this. We hope that better attendance would lead to better outcomes, but it assumes that being here for longer makes the difference?

 

Actions
Payment of fees to Edison education Year 2   £10,000
Payment of fees for local support group Project X   £15,000

 

Outcomes
Edison Learning has been the school development tool to improve standards and outcomes for the last 16 months. With them the school has developed a more rigorous and reflective cycle of looking at data, teaching and the outcomes of all children to secure better outcomes in the future. Academic standards have improved in both 2013 and 2014 and progress rates are seen as more even across the school.
Project X is a very local opportunity to work collaboratively with very local schools. The big gains have been in designing a ‘local attendance policy’ to improve attendance, a cycle of booster sessions for both yr. 6 and yr. 5 that have contributed to our improved standards and some excellent work with all the schools on supporting children on the EAL register.

 

Actions
New for this year is the cost of the intervention strategies and time used to support narrowing the gap and poor or inconsistent progress. £20,000

 

Outcomes of each intervention will be logged as the support takes place and will be measured by a confidence scale score and an attainment score.

 

Pupil Premium Temple Sutton Primary school and Children’s Centre

 

The amount of the school’s allocation from the Pupil Premium Grant in respect of 2014/15 – £333,000 allocation based on approx. £900 per FSM (every 6)

 

The likely use is the same as last year (2013/14) plus other interventions and ongoing support in the light of school development.
