St Margaret Clitherow Catholic School Pupil Premium Strategy

 

Date: February 2017

 

Date of next review of Pupil Premium: July 2017

 

Academy Lead for Pupil Premium: Annemarie Whittle
 

Background:

 

Pupil Premium funding is a government initiative designed to target resources to those pupils deemed to be from a disadvantaged background. Specifically, the Pupil Premium money is for those pupils who have been on Free School Meals (FSM) at any point over the past 6 years (Ever6) or those children who have been looked after continuously for at least 6 months (CLA). For the year 2016/2017 the Pupil Premium has a value of £1320 per eligible pupil in primary education and £935 per eligible pupil in secondary education (£1900 for those who are looked after or adopted from care). Neither the government nor any government agency has dictated how the Pupil Premium money should be spent, but what is clear is that the money should be used to promote strategies which narrow the attainment gap between the highest and lowest achieving pupils, and which enable eligible pupils to thrive, particularly if they demonstrate high ability.

Overview of St Margaret Clitherow Catholic School’s Strategies for improving the performance of pupils who are disadvantaged

 

 

At St Margaret Clitherow Catholic School, the main barriers to educational achievement that pupils in our school who are disadvantaged face are:

  • Emotional and Physical development needs
  • Extended learning opportunities
  • Enrichment
  • Before and after school care needs
  • Speech and Language
  • Parenting skills
  • Travel to and from school
  • IT facilities

 

We will spend our pupil premium funding in the following ways to address these barriers.

  • Uniform vouchers
  • Targeted 1:1 tuition before school
  • Counselling/Talk Time to support emotional well being
  • Specific Speech and Language Therapy
  • Play Therapy
  • Sensory Circuits
  • Active Club
  • Holiday club activities
  • Parenting Group
  • Small targeted groups for English and Maths
  • Breakfast and After School Club
  • Travel to and from school
  • ICT support
  • Enabling enrichment, individual music lessons, Dance Lessons, sports and Cookery Clubs, school trips and residential visit.

 

Our rationale for spending the money in this way is:

The pupil premium is provided to schools to support children who may be vulnerable to underachievement. We recognise that not all children who are vulnerable to disadvantage may be eligible for free school meals and so reserve the right to allocate Pupil Premium to support the learning of any child who may be disadvantaged.

 

At St Margaret’s we organise teaching to meet the needs of all our children in the best way possible, often into small groupings – research shows that early identification of need supports development.

 

Early acquisition of language is an area that is proven to support children’s learning so we explore early opportunities to support any language deficit and address particular need through internal and external expertise.

 

 

We ensure clear analysis and identification of need before allocating the use of Pupil Premium to support particular interventions.

 

Interventions will vary over time and according to need – progress is monitored 6 weekly and a review of the provision is then made. Research and experience shows prompt monitoring and subsequent adjustment of provision is key to ensuring progress.

St Margaret Clitherow Catholic School’s Results 2016 – Attainment and Progress of pupils eligible for Pupil Premium funding

 

New school accountability measures are as follows:

 

  • The proportion of pupils meeting the revised national standard
  • Scores measuring the progress made by pupils by subject from similar Key Stage 1 starting points

 

This is the first year that these measures have been the main accountability measures. It is therefore difficult to make year on year comparisons.

 

The table below provides headline figures for pupils who are disadvantaged. These pupils attract pupil premium funds. The headlines are compared to national average outcomes for pupils who are non-disadvantaged. The national averages for similarly disadvantaged pupils are shown for information.
