Pupil Premium Report

               

Sankey Valley St James Pupil Premium Statement

At Sankey Valley St James Primary School we endeavour to create a motivating learning environment, where every child can prosper and achieve.  We have high ambitions for our all children and believe that each child should be given the opportunity to reach their full potential regardless of their background. Pupil Premium represents a significant proportion of our budget and this statement outlines how it is spent and the impact it has.

 

What is Pupil Premium?

Pupil Premium (PP) was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools in addition to their main budgets to support schools across the country in reducing the attainment gap that currently exists between disadvantaged pupils and their peers.  Pupil Premium is paid to each school by a specific grant based on school census figures for pupils registered as eligible for free school meals (FSM) in Reception to Year 11. Schools receive funding for pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years; children who have been looked after and children of service personnel (this service premium is designed to address the emotional and social well-being of service personnel pupils).

 

There are three categories of children that qualify for Pupil Premium:

  • Children who are eligible for free school meals;
  • Looked after children;
  • Armed forces children.

 

All staff and governors at Sankey Valley St James are committed to meeting all our children’s pastoral, social and academic needs within a nurturing environment. Therefore, we carefully select ways to spend the funding to raise the aspirations and attainment of our pupils, narrowing the gap between those children who are in receipt of the Pupil Premium funding and those who are not.

 

How we plan to use the funding

The school has looked carefully at the needs of each pupil and we have decided to use the following intervention strategies:

  • Providing one to one and/or small group work for pupils entitled to PP funding with an experienced teacher and/or teaching assistant focussed on overcoming gaps in learning to help them make improved progress and to raise their standards of achievement;
  • Purchase quality resources for pupils entitled to PP funding aimed at raising standards, particularly in phonics, reading, writing and mathematics;
  • All our work through the Pupil Premium will be aimed at closing the gap between children in receipt of PP and those that are not. Moving pupils entitled to PP funding to at least age related expectations. Initially this will be in Literacy and Numeracy;
  • Pupil Premium resources will also be used to target able pupils entitled to PP funding and others to achieve more than expected progress at KS1 and at the end of KS2 (Year 2 and Year 6) and extend, broaden and deepen skills, knowledge and understanding for children in order that they reach their age related expectations at the end of each year group and Key Stage.
  • To use specialist consultancy support to develop staff teaching strategies for targeted support.

 

Reporting

It is the responsibility of the Headteacher and the Pupil Premium lead to report to the Governors on:

  • The progress made towards narrowing the gap;
  • An outline of the current provision which has been put in place for the Pupil Premium children;
  • An evaluation of the impact of the Pupil Premium funding on raising attainment.

Parents will receive information about the progress of their child through termly progress reports, pop in sessions and end of year reports.

 

Published on our website will be:

  • Our Pupil Premium allocation for the current academic year;
  • Details of how we intend to spend our allocation;
  • Details of how we spent our previous years allocation;
  • Details of the impact our Pupil Premium funding had on raising attainment.
