Pupil Premium/Sports Grant

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

In April 2017, our indicative budget suggested that we should receive a total of £23,760 for 13 Ever 6 pupils.

 

In 2017/2018 the funding will be used primarily to support additional staffing costs. This will enable the school to provide additional support for pupils in danger of under-achieving at the end of KS1 and KS2 through individual and small group tuition in literacy and numeracy skills.

 

Some pupil premium funding will be used to support some individuals and small groups through assistance with social skills activity costs in order to have a direct impact on self-esteem and confidence for the pupils concerned.

 

Planned actions, strategies and interventions for 2017/18.

 

Study Support lessons targeting Y6 pupils in Maths and English - £2,000.

Additional hours for 2 further support staff - £9186.

Additional TA hours to support improvement in Maths and English for both individuals and groups through Catch Up Numeracy Training - £395 and Catch Up Literacy Training £395, Social skills groups and spelling and handwriting.

Subsidising residential trips £500.

Equipment to allow pupils to participate in ‘Bikeability’ Training - £250.

HfL Resources for EYFS staff - £150.

Black Sheep Resources for social skills £36.

Lunchtime activities with specialist sports coaches - £5000

The remainder will be deployed according to the needs of the children.

 

In the financial year 2014/15 Our Lady's received £45,500 Pupil Premium funding.

In the financial year 2015/16 Our Lady's received £38,280 Pupil Premium funding.

In the financial year 2016/17 Our Lady's received £38,280 Pupil Premium funding (£6,600 clawed back), new figure £35,640.

In the financial year 2017/18  Our Lady's received £23,760  Pupil Premium funding.

The Department for Education (DfE) states that:

 

"Schools, heateachers and teachers will decide how to use the Pupil Premium allocation, as they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for individual pupils.  It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FMS pupil is spent since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility."

 

The School's Leadership Team has discussed at length how the Pupil Premium funding can best be used to have maximum impact and benefit.  A range of activities and interventions have and will be funded, either fully or partly by the Pupil Premium, to support progress and attainment for all children who are eligible for Pupil Premium funding and to help them meet and exceed expectations.  Funding will also be used to ensure that children who are eligible for Pupil Premium funding will have access to financial support to enable them to participate in as many school activities as possible including school trips, extra-curricular clubs and the school's Extended Journey (residential trip).  Other examples of how this money will be used to support children eligible for Pupil Premium funded are listed below:

 

  • SEN support and interventions for pupils on Free School Meals.
  • Lunchtime activities with specialist sports coaches.
  • 30 hours TA - specific interventions for example: social skills and Lego therapy.
  • Additional training for staff to provide interventions.
  • Resources for the social skills group.
  • Study support lessons for Y6 pupils.
  • Music Therapy.
  • Resources for Early Years staff to improve both the provision for and support of disadvantaged children in the setting (Herts for Learning 'Places to Play' Publication and 'Making the Difference Early Years Toolkit' Publication.
  • Subsidising trips, including the Y6 residential trip.
