Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?


This is funding from the Government that is additional to main school funding.


‘The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.’

Hazlewood’s Pupil Premium Vision


We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all of the pupils. In relation to pupil premium children:

  • We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed.

  • In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged.

  • We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. We reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.

Provision


The range of provision Hazlewood may consider making for this group include:

  • Providing small group work with an experienced teacher and/or teaching assistant.

  • 1-1 support and intervention.

  • All our work through the Pupil Premium will be aimed at accelerating progress moving children to at least age related expectations. Initially this will be in Numeracy and Literacy.

  • After school clubs.

  • Trips, including residential trips where appropriate.

  • Other opportunities that facilitate pupils accessing the curriculum or were felt to enrich their experience in school.

  • Nurture group at lunchtimes.


Reporting


It will be the responsibility of the Headteacher and the Senior Leadership team to produce regular reports for the Governing Body. This will include:

  • The progress made towards narrowing the gap, by year group, for socially disadvantaged pupils.

  • An outline of the provision that was made since the last meeting.

  • An evaluation of the cost effectiveness, in terms of the progress made by the pupils receiving a particular provision.

Available on the school website is an annual statement on how the Pupil Premium funding has been used to address the issue of ‘narrowing the gap’, for socially disadvantaged pupils. The use and distribution of Pupil Premium Funding will be carried out within the any statutory requirements published by the Department for Education.

How the funding was used and the impact on pupils’ learning:

Nurture Room

A new refurbished nurture room has been set up which runs every lunchtime. This room is a designated place where children can feel safe and supported. Children can be referred to the room in order to have 1:1 sessions / group work for a specific issue or they can simply turn up over lunchtime if they feel they need to talk to somebody. The room has 2 adults in at all times.


Staff Training

Attachment – All teaching staff have received training from our educational psychologist regarding attachment theory and how this can impact on children’s learning. Staff are putting this theory into practise and have introduced ‘calm boxes’ for individual children.

Solihull Approach – 2 members of staff attended a 2 day training course and then relayed the information back to staff. This has allowed us to develop stronger relationships with parents/carers and also assist and support them with any issues or challenges they may face, particularly in our EYFS.

Social, Emotional and Mental Health – All teaching staff have accessed a session regarding how to support vulnerable children in class. Staff have evaluated their practise and put actions into place to support these children further e.g. the choice of dialogue used and behaviour choices, delivered by Silverdale ARP.


Interventions

Wave 3 - Key Stage 2 teaching assistant trained to deliver success @ arithmetic 4 afternoons per week to boost results and gaps in learning for KS2 pupils.

Wave 2 - RWI – continuation of RWI programme, additional staff trained to deliver the programme and school development days used to analyse data, identify gaps and improve the delivery and quality of teaching and learning for all children in EYFS and KS1. Results clearly show the impact of RWI and 100% of pupils at the end of KS1 in 2016 had passed their phonics screening check and also met the expected standard for reading. 100% Year 1 pupils passed the phonics screening check in 2016.

Teaching assistants were trained in and delivered learning programmes for those pupils assessed and identified as having specific learning difficulties e.g. dyslexia.


Curriculum focus of PPG spending 2015/16

The main focus was in helping pupils with writing and maths.

The school employs teaching assistants who have been trained in Wave 2 type interventions such as 1st Class at Number, RWI. The impact of this has been excellent, with the vast majority of pupils making good progress in learning. For the few pupils who have made slower progress money has been spent on referrals to outside specialists and further assessments have been carried out. Programmes of support with teaching assistants have been put in place for those pupils with specific learning difficulties.

Measuring the impact of PPG spending

Impact to date

EYFS

  • GLD was expected or exceeding in the prime areas, mathematics and literacy, was achieved by 77% of pupils –the national was 69%.
  • The average score for all 17 ELG was 38.2, nationally it was 34.
  • 92% achieved expected level for all prime areas.
  • 50% of FSM6 children achieved GLD.
  • 75% of FSM6 children achieved ELGs in prime areas.


KS1

  • FSM6 pupils scored significantly higher than national average in all areas. FSM6 pupils outperformed non-fsm6 pupils on average across all areas suggesting the gap has closed.
  • Pupil premium pupils have made outstanding progress in writing and good progress in maths and reading.
  • They have made more progress on average in reading and writing than non - pupil premium children but have made less in maths.


KS2

  • Pupils eligible for PP in year 6 make rapid progress so that the majority of PP pupils meet age related expectation by the end of year 6 and all have made good progress from their starting point. 82% pupils achieved expected standard+ in reading, writing and maths, 75% of non-pupil premium children achieved the expected standard+.Interventions,

Pupil Premium expenditure 2016/17 - overcoming barriers to learning.

From our analysis of pupil outcomes 2015/16 and other self-evaluation activities, we have identified the following priorities as a means of helping youngsters overcome barriers to learning.

Early Years

  1. Closing the Gap in attainment for pupil premium pupils in writing and maths. 
  2. Improving language skills when entering EYFS.

Actions:

  • Full time teaching assistant in Reception.
  • Additional teaching assistant during AM sessions in Nursery.
  • Talk For Writing
    Inference and thinking skills using picture stimulus resources.
  • BLAST – Speech and language programme.

Key Stage 1 and 2

1. Basic skills, arithmetic in maths, reading comprehension leading to writing in English.
2. End of KS1 results show an attainment gap in writing and maths between pupil premium and non-pupil premium pupils.
3. Current Year 2 cohort – Y1 data shows gap between progress of pupil premium pupils in reading, writing and maths.
4. Key Stage 2 data suggests that there is attainment gap in years 4, 5 and 6.

5. Behaviour issues for a small group of Year 6 pupils (mostly eligible for PP) are having detrimental effect on their academic progress and that of their peers.

Actions:

  • Year 2 supported during English and Maths by an experienced TA.
  • Intervention in Year 2 is a priority including teacher’s carrying out precision intervention during break, lunch and assembly times.
  • Continued use of established intervention programmes 
  • Talk for Writing 
  • Precision interventions. 
  • RWI small groups, stage not age lessons, 1:1 support for children regressing or not making progress.
  • Success at arithmetic 3x weekly. 
  • 1:1 support for children on dyslexia programme 3x per week. 
  • Booster breakfast club for Y6 and Y2 children. 
  • Use of TA’s in school, high priority of time to be given to interventions to help close the gaps.
  • Additional Whole School Actions
  • Appointment of part time PPA teacher to ensure that the majority of lessons are taught by a qualified teacher to ensure the effectiveness of teaching and learning across school. 
  • Educational trips paid for children receiving pupil premium funding to allow opportunities to gain wider experiences.
    Edukey software to digitally create profiles for all children who receive pupil premium, allowing more rigorous monitoring of wave 2 and 3 interventions and the impact and cost.
  • Staff to be trained in the Singapore maths approach
