  1. Barriers to future attainment (for pupils eligible for PP)

In-school barriers (issues to be addressed in school, such as poor oral language skills)

  1.  

Within each year group there are a small number of pupils eligible for the pupil premium and although there are some common barriers we endeavour to identify each pupil’s unique circumstances and address these through individualised provision

  1.  

Within some year groups, in key stage 2 there are concerns with confidence and motivation

C.

Writing achievement and progress is being monitored across the school, use of marking and feedback to support pupil progress continues

External barriers (issues which also require action outside school, such as low attendance rates)

D.

For some pupils attendance and punctuality is below our expectations and they miss out on important learning

  1. Desired outcomes (Desired outcomes and how they will be measured)

Success criteria

  1.  

Continue the systematic approach to organisation and planning of interventions by support staff, with a strong focus upon impact (on-going outcomes and provision)

To strengthen key systems to ensure disadvantaged pupils’ individual needs are addressed so that the difference between this group and others nationally continues to be reduced

  1.  

Improved confidence and motivation of some PP in Key stage 2

Accelerated progress of identified pupils in key stage 2 leads to children being in a better position to achieve expected standard by the end of KS2

  1.  

The school to provide more enriching experiences of the world and  to broaden pupils vocabulary

PP have increased their understanding of the world through in school experiences and wider knowledge is shown through written evidence.  PP SATs results in writing have improved to be at National /LA or above.

  1.  

Increase the attendance rate of pupils eligible for PP

Overall PP attendance improves from 92.98% to 96%.

Visiting theatre groups and workshops for pupils

Pupil’s grammar and language when writing is limited to their personal experiences.  We want to invest some of the PP in ensuring that our curriculum has inspiring resources and opportunities for the pupils to enrich their language, which they will then be able to use in their writing.

Lesson observations will show pupils using a broader vocabulary, standards of writing will show accelerated progress.

Pupil attainment across the school continues to improved in most year groups.

New pupils joining the school mid-year had a significant impact on the data this year.

67% in Maths, 44% for Writing and 55% for reading.  pupils achieving the age expected standard at the end of 2018-19. 

 

The difference between non disadvantaged and PP is diminishing at the end of the key stage however there was there are still some individuals who have not made accelerated progress. 

Precision teaching has been effective in accelerating progress for most pupils and will be continued.  The use of 1:1 and small group support will be incorporated into the quality first teaching to ensure that PPP are able to achieve nationally expected standards.

Progress of pupils continues to improve however this is still not consistent across all subjects and cohorts.

Targeted interventions for individuals and groups

PP progress in Maths was strongest with 5.7 points, whilst Writing was 5.2 and Reading was 5.4 points. 

Structured conversations with parents to support pupils wellbeing and learning were effective with some targeted pupils making accelerated progress in all areas. 

Quality of Teaching across the school has consistently improved with more children fully engaged in all parts of the lesson.

Maths Mastery approach has had a significant impact on pupil’s progress during the second part of the year.

Progress in writing is not yet expected for this group of pupils, moderation of these needs to be completed within the collaboration meetings.

Breakfast Club provide to encourage attendance and punctuality

PP attendance has decreased this year to 92.98%.  Within this groups there was 1 pupil with significantly poor attendance (below 80%).   This had a considerable impact on this small group of pupils’ average. 

These pupils continue to benefited from the opportunity to engage in a social environment with an appropriate breakfast.  They begin the school day more efficiently as they are calmer and more settled before their learning time begins.

Individual pupils within this group continue to be a focus for attendance to improve both the PP and whole school attendance to above our target of 96%

 

Senior teacher need to be available during this club to manage some of the PPP.
