Whitley And Eggborough Community Primary School

Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium is additional funding to help schools close the attainment gap between children from low-income and other disadvantaged families and their peers. If a child has been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point over the past 6 years, or has been looked after for one day or more (Child Looked After), the school receives an amount per head within their budget. Pupil premium money is also allocated to Service children and Looked after Children

 

Whitley & Eggborough Community Primary School is committed to ensuring maximum progress for all groups of children and strives to close any gaps in achievement. We actively promote equality of opportunity for all staff, governors, pupils and parents, creating a harmonious learning community where all can succeed. We have a clear, strategic approach to the use of specific Pupil Premium funding and plans are integrated into wider school support and improvement systems. Progress is monitored and evaluated regularly and in-depth data analysis ensures that the correct support and strategies are identified to maximise progress. Strong leadership systems ensure that Pupil Premium funding has the necessary impact.

 

All matters relating to the Pupil Premium are reported back to the Governors, ensuring that the school is held to account for the impact of spending.

Summary of Pupil Premium Strategy 2016-2017

Date last reviewed

Date for next review

March 2017

Pupil Premium is grant funding which is given in addition to the schools delegated budget. It is allocated to schools to support children from low income families. In addition to this, a supplementary figure is given to schools for children who have been looked after, adopted from care or have left care under a special guardianship order, residence order or a child arrangement order.

The majority of our pupil premium children Reception with low baseline levels, particularly in language and communication and social development. We target these areas through support and intervention programmes in order to close the gap within the Early Years and throughout their education at Whitley & Eggborough Community Primary School.

Pupil Premium Grant Allocation

In 2016/2017 the school has been allocated £68,449. This figure includes the £1320 per pupil entitled to Free School Meals and £1900 per ‘Looked After Child’ (although this allocation does change depending on Local Authority).

Building on from the successful outcomes achieved last academic year, we will continue to provide the provision stipulated below and carefully monitor its impact. We have and will continue to invest in specific training and intervention programmes to ensure all our Pupil Premium children maximise their potential. As a Leadership team we have identified these additional needs in our school through discussions with staff and parents. We feel all pupils, but particularly those whom receive Pupil Premium, will benefit.

We will measure the impact of these interventions through termly pupil progress meetings, careful pupil tracking systems and provision mapping.

We will review the impact on the children’s learning termly and make necessary changes to meet their needs.
