Etz Chaim Jewish Primary School

 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.

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 annually reported to the Governing Body and not published on the website.
