Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is a government initiative designed to target resources on those pupils deemed to be from a disadvantaged background.  Pupil Premium money is provided for those pupils who have been eligible for free school meals at any point over the past 6 years or those children who are or have been looked after.

Pupil Premium now has a value of £1,320 per pupil eligible for free school meals and £2,300 for children who have been adopted from care.

Plan for 2018- 2019

This year we have received £23,380.  Our Pupil Premium money is being spent to promote strategies which narrow the attainment gap between those children eligible for Pupil Premium funding and those who are not eligible.  We plan to do this by:

  • Funding a teacher mentor.
  • Funding additional Learning Support Assistant time for school group work and intervention.
  • To enable attendance on school trips.
  • Access to specialist after school clubs.
  • Access to extended school services.

Impact of Pupil Premium

Foxton Primary School is a small school, with very small numbers of pupils eligible for the Pupil Premium.  It is not possible to report the impact of the use of this grant funding without risking the public identification of individual pupils.  Individual pupil data is available in school, however, the impact was:

a) Improved rates of progress in reading and maths, the gap narrowed;

b) Raised self-esteem and confidence;

c) Increased participation in clubs and trips;

d) Smooth transition to secondary school;

e) Improved participation in school based activities.

 

This funding is used to ensure quality first teaching for the children eligible for the support by providing additional classroom support and interventions.  This takes the form of support in lessons for English, Maths with individual and small group teaching.  Social communication intervention is also taking place.

We continue to monitor this closely to ensure the maximum benefit to the pupils.

Pupils supported by the pupil premium funding achieve well because these additional funds have been used to provide additional adult support that is concentrated on developing their literacy and numeracy skills. Consequently, their standards are rising and the gap between this group and other pupils in the school is narrowing. - OFSTED February 2013
