Our principles

  • All children regardless of their needs have access to outstanding quality teaching and learning.
  • Pupil Premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals. The grant is aimed at accelerating progress by moving children to at least age related expectations.
  • 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 reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.
  • Limited funding and resources means that not all children receiving free school meals will be in receipt of pupil premium interventions at one time.
  • We identify more able disadvantaged children.

Barriers to the children’s learning

The barriers to the children learning can be summarised in general terms as the following:

  • Attainment of children in Key Stage Two in Writing.
  • Progress in Writing and Maths (some cohorts).
  • Complex family issues which have a negative impact on the emotional needs and wellbeing of the children.
  • Low income for some families.

Allocation of funding:

  • £15,400 -Towards the salary of the Learning Support Assistants/HLTAs who work with individual or small groups of children who need a boost to their learning, support with their behaviour or who are underachieving; for example, maths tuition, phonics, group reading and writing. 

Success criteria – Our underachieving pupils have been identified supported and tailored interventions put in place. Their progress is regularly monitored to ensure they make at least expected progress.

  • £3,000 -Towards the salary of an extra teacher focusing on intervention work across the junior department. Mr Joslin  work with individual or small groups of children who need a boost to their learning, support with their behaviour or who are underachieving; for example, maths tuition, phonics, group reading and writing. 

Success criteria – Our underachieving pupils have been identified supported and tailored interventions put in place. Their progress is regularly monitored to ensure they make at least expected progress.

  • Any additional funding received will be allocated according to the needs of the pupils and additional resources allocation including staffing.   

Curriculum focus on Pupil premium funding spending in 2018/2019

  • The school has focussed its additional support on accelerating progress to ensure that children meet or exceed age related expectations in Maths and English.
  • Support has also been dedicated to the training of Learning Support Assistants in every class to tailor support to the needs of our pupils.

How we will monitor the outcomes of the Pupil Premium funding in 2018/19

The progress and achievement of all children will be monitored at least termly between the class teacher and the Assessment Lead and/or Designated Safeguarding Leader .The careful monitoring and tracking of the both individual and the cohort’s attainment, is to enable the early identification of need, support and appropriate intervention. The level and nature of support will be adjusted on a termly basis to ensure a more tailored approach which will reflects individual children's needs.

Impact of the Pupil Premium Funding for 2017-2018

Because of this intervention and targeting of specific provision, the end of key stage outcomes is very positive. Because of the low numbers of children at the school, comparison with local and national average can be difficult and misleading.  All statistics should be reviewed alongside additional information including internal school tracking data of the children and teacher assessment.

Impact statement – other areas

Pupil premium children have benefitted in many ways from allocated funding. These are not all measurable through progress and attainment data however, are equally important. Wellbeing and pastoral support for those children who have identified barriers to learning has meant that those children have received the support they need to fulfil their potential and develop the personal and social skills and attitude they need for future learning. It is achieved with outstanding inter- personal relationship between staff and pupils, a strong mission statement that permeates every aspect of our school, high expectations of all and a whole school ethos that values the uniqueness of all.

The school has also provided the following:

  • An extra teacher for the more able children and to provide targeted support for individual children.
  • Pastoral support for the SMT team and from Brentwood Children Society in the form of a counsellor
  • Parenting supporting including meetings, coaching resources and workshops.
  • School uniform for children including shoes, coats and PE equipment.
  • Funding for school trips including our residential to the Isle of Wight and Suntrap, Epping Forest.
