Pupil Premium Funding

Askwith Primary School Pupil Premium Report

 

What is Pupil Premium funding?

  • The Pupil Premium is a form of funding, in addition to main school funding, to address the current underlying inequalities between those children eligible for free school meals (FSM), forces children, looked after children and adopted children and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.
  • The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools and it is for schools to decide how the funding will be spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility. The funding is allocated to schools per individual pupil. In 2017 – 2018 school received £9,840 for Pupil Premium children. The funding for each pupil eligible for FSM in the last 6 years was £1,320. In 2018 – 2019 school will receive £11,499.96 for Pupil Premium children. The funding for each pupil eligible for FSM in the last 6 years will be £1,320. The school will also receive £2,300 for each pupil identified in the spring school census as having left local-authority care because of one of the following:
    • adoption
    • a special guardianship order
    • a child arrangement order
    • a residential order
  • Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However, they will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support disadvantaged pupils.

Principles

  • New measures will be included in the performance tables that will capture the achievement of those deprived pupils covered by the Pupil Premium.
  • Since September 2012, schools have been required to publish online information about how they have used the Premium. This will ensure that parents and others are made fully aware of the attainment of pupils covered by the Premium.
  • We endeavour to close any achievement gap by ensuring that any pupils at risk of underachieving are identified early and support and interventions are provided for individual pupils. As a school we are committed to personalising provision to ensure all pupils make at least good progress in their learning. We believe that all pupils should attain the expected standard before transferring to secondary school.

  1. 2.  Barriers to future attainment (for pupils eligible for PP)

In-school barriers

  1. A.   

Lower attainment rates of pupils eligible for PPG in KS1 could potentially affect pupils’ ability to reach end of year expectations in Key Stage 2.

  1. B.   

Lower progress rates of pupils eligible for PPG in KS1 could potentially affect pupils’ ability to reach end of year expectations in Key Stage 2.

C.

Low self-esteem in pupils eligible for PPG could affect attainment and progress rates by the end of Year 6.

External barriers

D.

In 2017-2018, a small group of children eligible for PPG had attendance rates of below 96%. This reduces their school hours and causes them to fall behind on average.

E.

Reduced opportunities for extra-curricular activities for pupils eligible for PPG could result in lower skill development across the curriculum.
