Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium funding introduced in 2011 is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers.

The Pupil Premium scheme has given schools an additional budget to spend freely in a way they believe would maximise support and improve the achievements of these vulnerable pupils.

The scheme is also offered for those children who are in care or who have been looked after for more than six months. It acknowledges the additional support these children require in order to maximise their educational achievement. It is also provided for children of parents in the armed services.

In the 2016 to 2017 financial year, schools will receive £1,320 for each pupil in reception year to year 6 registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years.

 

Eligibility Criteria

Your child might be able to get free school meals if you get any of the following:

  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The guaranteed element of Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (provided you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)
  • Working Tax Credit run-on - paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
  • Universal Credit 

Children who get paid these benefits directly, instead of through a parent or guardian, can also get free school meals.

 

Your child might also get free school meals if you get any of these benefits and your child is both:

  • younger than the compulsory age for starting school
  • in full-time education

Infant free school meals

Your child will be able to get free school meals if they’re in:

  • Reception class
  • Year 1
  • Year 2

Tell your local authority if you also get any of the above benefits. Your child’s school can get extra funding if you do.

 

Rationale

Pupil Premium is carefully ring-fenced so that it is spent on the target group of students. We have the highest expectation of all our students. Through our Pupil Progress meetings we thoroughly identify which pupils are underachieving and use research evidence (such as Fischer Family Trust) to allocate funding to the activities that were most likely to have an impact on improving achievement.

All class and subject teachers know which pupils are eligible for Pupil Premium so that they can take responsibility for implementing strategies for accelerating their progress, and they are accountable for the progress of these students through the appraisal process.

At Etz Chaim Jewish Primary School support to raise achievement is personalised according to each individual. We use our knowledge of students and their families to identify potential barriers to individual students attaining their goals, and use the funding flexibly to overcome these barriers. We are committed to ensuring that pupils fulfil their potential in a particular subject or skill because of a lack of opportunities outside of school, or a lack of family finances so funding may be used to support these students in experiences and skills beyond their academic gains.

Through careful monitoring and evaluation we can show the positive impact of our spending on the outcomes for pupils. Because of the small numbers of children who are eligible for pupil premium, impact is reported to the Governing Body and not published on the website.

 

Pupil Premium 2016-17

In 2016 - 2017, our allocation for the Pupil Premium Grant will be £5280.

We have identified the following barriers to educational achievement that we shall be targeting our spending of pupil premium money on:

  • To raise self-esteem, develop  pupil engagement  and confidence
  • To  remove any potential cost barriers and ensure full access school visits that  enrich the curriculum 
  • To raise attainment in phonological skills 
  • To enrich and enhance experiences and skills  within the extend hours programme   
  • Purchase of software and resources to provide differentiated learning opportunities 
  • Support for additional Teaching Assistant hours to provide classroom support and deliver interventions to help children progress in literacy and numeracy

 

Pupil Premium 2015 – 16

In 2015 - 2016, our allocation for the Pupil Premium Grant was £2640

Targeted literacy support focussed on the development of phonological and writing skills. It is evident that children’s confidence and skills have grown and developed and that this is benefitting progress and classroom participation. All children enjoy new and exciting experiences and that has continued to be the beneficial effects of participation in both school excursions and after school activities.

Pupil Premium 2013 - 2014

 

In 2013-2014, our allocation for the Pupil Premium Grant was £1762.

This funding focused on the provision and implementation of individual and small group support in reading, writing and maths and the extension of first hand experiences in order to support, enhance and develop learning across the curriculum.

This funding has helped children eligible for the Pupil Premium to develop their self-esteem and confidence through attending an after school club each term. Additional Teaching Assistant support has enabled them to develop key skills in reading, writing and maths. The use of Clicker 6 has given them and other children more confidence when writing and we have seen an improvement in the quality and content of their written work.
