Pupil Premium Strategy Statement

 

What is Pupil Premium Funding?

The Pupil Premium was introduced by the government in April 2011 and is paid by means of a specific grant, based on school census figures, for pupils registered as eligible for free school meals (FSM) in reception to Year 11. For Looked After Children the Pupil Premium was calculated using Children Looked After data. A premium has also been introduced for children whose parents serve in the armed forces. This service premium is designed to address the emotional and social well-being of these pupils.

The Pupil Premium is additional to main school funding and it will be used by the school to address any underlying inequalities between children eligible by ensuring that funding reaches the pupils who need it most. All schools are required to ensure that identified funding is carefully targeted to improve the life chances of designated pupils or groups of pupils.

Principles and Objectives for Pupil Premium at Hook with Warsash C.E. Academy

At Hook with Warsash we aim to provide an inspirational environment based on Christian values where individuals can excel and flourish academically, socially and emotionally, preparing them for life’s journey. The targeted and strategic use of Pupil Premium funding will support us in achieving our vision.

In order to meet this we:

  • Ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all pupils;

  • 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 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 will always look to include these children in any small support groups set up to support children eligible for Pupil Premium funding. Limited funding and resources means that not all children receiving free school meals will be in receipt of pupil premium interventions at one time.

Provision

The range of provision the Governors may consider making for the group could include:

  • Early morning intervention groups

  • 1:1 support

  • Providing small group work with an experienced teacher focused on overcoming gaps and barriers in learning

  • Increasing the number of experienced teachers working in classrooms to support the acceleration of progress

  • Additional teaching and learning opportunities provided through members of the SLT and trained TAs

  • Support for educational visits and trips to enhance the curriculum opportunities available to all

  • Provision of Emotional Literacy Support for vulnerable pupils

  • Support for families regarding attendance and other issues that impact on this

  • Support for children to attend after school clubs

  • Resourcing and supporting pupils with speech and language difficulties

  • Providing opportunities for more able children to excel

  • If a child goes on Active Service full support will be given by the ELSA.

     

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 communication, English and maths. Pupil Premium resources may also be used to target able children on FSM to exceed end of year expectations. Provision may also be aimed at children with EHCPs who are also eligible for Pupil Premium funding.

Barriers to learning

In-School Barriers

A.

Spelling and handwriting as a barrier to writing attainment

B.

Engagement with reading impacting on fluency/comprehension

C.

Mastery of basic concepts and application of maths facts for quick recall

D.

Some children who are eligible for the PP Grant are also on the Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) register which means they may face additional learning barriers such as poor working memory, dyslexia, dyspraxia, autism and speech, language and communication difficulties and social, emotional and mental health difficulties which can impact on their academic progress

 

External Barriers

A.

External factors such as parenting skills, lower attendance and mental health issues affect engagement with school and progress for some pupils eligible for PP Grant

B.

The home environment for some children eligible for PP lack support with home learning activities and developing each child’s learning

C.

The home environment for some children eligible for PP is poor for language acquisition and engagement with literature

D.

Disruption in home circumstances has had an impact on some children eligible for PP Grant

E.

Service family pupils affected emotionally by a parent away which can affect concentration and progress

 

Reporting

It will be the responsibility of the Pupil Premium lead to produce regular reports for the governors on:

  • The progress made towards narrowing the gap, by year group, for pupils who are in receipt of Pupil Premium funding;

  • An outline for the provision that was made since the last report;

  • An evaluation of the cost effectiveness in terms of the progress made by the pupils receiving a particular provision when compared with other forms of support will be produced annually in the Pupil Premium Strategy Statement.

The governors of Hook with Warsash C.E. Academy will ensure that there is an annual statement to parents available on our website on how Pupil Premium funding has been used to address issues of narrowing the gap for vulnerable pupils. This task will be carried out within the requirements published by the Department for Education.
