Pupil Premium Statement

Pupil Premium Funding and Impact 2017/2018

Pupil Premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. The money is used in a variety of ways including whole school initiatives, subsidising enrichment activities, small group and 1 to 1 support. Schools receive £1320 for each pupil premium child. Each school may decide how best to use the funding and they are held accountable for how it has been used to support pupils from low income families.

The government use free school meals as the main measure for deprivation at pupil level and provide schools with a list of those who have been eligible free school meals any time in the last 6 years. The pupil premium for 2018 to 2019 will include pupils recorded in the January 2018 school census who are known to have been eligible for FSM since May 2012, as well as those first known to be eligible at January 2018.

Schools will also receive £2,300 for each looked-after pupil (LAC) who:

  • Has been looked after for 1 day or more
  • Was adopted from care on or after 30 December 2005, or left care under:

      – a special guardianship order

      – a residence order

The LAC premium must be managed by the designated virtual school head (VSH) and used for the benefit of the looked-after child’s educational needs as described in their personal education plan.

Our aims this year are to:

  • Ensure that our pupil premium children continue to achieve at better than national figures and that the gap between pupil premium and not continues to close.
  • To decrease the gap between pupil premium and not pupil premium at greater than expected achievement.

Possible barriers to achievement faced by eligible pupils

  • Fewer children who are eligible for pupil premium reach above expected levels in reading, writing and maths compared those who are not eligible
  • Some children eligible for pupil premium have financial restraints which may limit participation in school and outside activities
  • Some pupil premium children experience housing insecurity which can be distressing and impact on learning
  • Children eligible for pupil premium have a higher rate of absence than non eligible (5.4% compared with 3.5% in last census report; 14.9% of PP children had attendance lower than 90% compared with 5.4% of non PP)

Impact of 2017/2018 Strategy

The progress and attainment of pupil premium children is closely monitored.

End of year results for Early Years Foundation Stage demonstrates that pupil premium children at Kilmorie continue to attain higher than all children nationally.

Pupil premium children performed slightly below all children nationally in the Phonics test in Year 1. There were 5 pupil premium children in Year 1 and 1 child, newly arrived, did not achieve the expected level.

At the end of Key Stage 1 pupil premium children attained higher than all children nationally, however they were lower than last year’s Kilmorie pupil premium children.

At the end of Key Stage 2 pupil premium children attained higher than all children nationally apart from in reading where achievement was slightly below all children.

SMALL GROUP INSTRUMENTAL LESSONS

Every pupil premium child from Y1 – 6 is offered a free weekly instrumental lesson (or discount up to the value of a group lesson – £45.00 per term).   Parents who do not respond to correspondence are informed that children will be automatically be added to the instrumental lesson of the child’s choice assuming a place is available.  Where applicable instruments are loaned free-of-charge to pupil premium children (non pupil-premium children are charged £15 – £18 per term depending on the instrument.)

100% of pupil premium children will receive free music lessons in 2018/19.

ENRICHMENT CLUBS

All pupil premium children are entitled to attend clubs for £1 per week per club.  Where there is particular need these may be offered for free.  Due to the out-of-school hours nature of our enrichment clubs we depend on parental opt-in, which can be a barrier for the attendance of disadvantaged pupils. As a result we provide enrichment activities during the school day which target disadvantaged children.
