Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.

Pupil Premium Funding 2015/2016

 

Purpose

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

 

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as Ever 6 FSM).

 

Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months, and children of service personnel.

 

Accountability

The Government believes that head teachers and school leaders should decide how to use the Pupil Premium. They are held accountable for the decisions they make through

 

  • the performance tables which show the performance of disadvantaged pupils compared with their peers,

  • the new Ofsted inspection framework, under which inspectors focus on the attainment of pupil groups, in particular those who attract the Pupil Premium,

  • The new reports for parents that schools now have to publish online,

  • < >£1320 per pupil. The Service Premium level of funding in 2015-16 is £300 per pupil.

     

    At Dinglewell, we have high aspirations and ambitions for our children, and we believe that no child should be left behind.  We strongly believe that it is not about where you come from, but your passion and thirst for knowledge, and your dedication and commitment to learning that make the difference between success and failure.  We are determined to ensure that our children are given every chance to realise their full potential, and improve their outcomes.  Pupil Premium funding represents a significant and much appreciated proportion of our budget, and our work ensures that it is spent to maximum effect.

     

    Academic Support

  • Geraldine Brogan, Head, has overall responsibility for Pupil Premium Pupils and closing their gap. We provide a range of additional academic support for our children, and these interventions have had a significant impact on childrens attainment.  We are delighted with our KS2 results which show that the school is going from strength to strength, and reflect the hard work of staff, excellent partnership with parents and our combined determination to ensure that EVERY child succeeds.  We have a good track record of ensuring that pupils make excellent progress, but historically levels of attainment are lower for FSM (eligible for free school meals) this is also a national trend.

     

    Two experienced part-time teachers are our Closing the Gap Champions:  Jenny Deichen and Alexis Bright deliver a programme of work across the academic year, and their salaries totalling £44,300 come from Pupil Premium funding. Their work includes all aspects of the curriculum but with a focus on raising standards in writing, reading and maths. This involves invaluable small group work which we could not provide without pupil premium funding, and these targeted interventions accelerate progress.

     

    £7,000 pupil premium used for 1:1 tuition for top up in years 5 and 6 is taken as after school booster groups by staff, and this has enormous impact on attainment.  Without Pupil Premium funding we would be unable to provide and maintain this hugely effective programme. 6 teachers are paid above salary for this work, reflecting the importance we place on using the Pupil Premium funding effectively to raise standards and close the gap.

     

    Pastoral Support

    Approximately £1,000 is used to provide milk each day for Pupil Premium pupils, and approximately £2,000 to help their families with the cost of attending our residential adventure week in Year 6.  We believe this broadens their enjoyment of and achievement in school activities, promotes their confidence and self-esteem, and reflects our commitment to fully include all of our children, irrespective of circumstances.

     

    TOTAL £54,300

 

  • Pupil Premium Funding 14/15
  • In 14/15, two of our experienced part-time teachers Laura Lyons and Alexis Bright delivered a programme of Closing the Gap work across the academic year, and a proportion of their salaries totalling £25,000 came from Pupil Premium funding.  Their work included all aspects of the curriculum but with a focus on raising standards in writing, reading and maths.  This involved invaluable small group work which we could not provide without pupil premium funding, and these targeted interventions accelerated progress.
  • Gemma Scott's salary and the covering of her former duties (PPA cover) was also funded by pupil premium (£22,000).  Gemma completed her second year of an education degree (part time) in 14/15, and qualified as an HLTA.  She provided invaluable small group booster work with the focus of closing the gap in maths and English specifically for year 3.  She also ran a fourth maths set in year 3 on a team teach basis with the year group leader to address any gaps that needed closing.
  • £8,300 pupil premium was used for one to one tuition top-up in years 5 and 6.  These after school booster groups had enormous impact on attainment, and we would have been unable to provide and maintain this hugely effective programme without pupil premium funding.  6 teachers were paid above salary for this work, 4 of whom were members of the senior leadership team, reflecting the importance we place on using pupil premium funding effectively to raise standards and close the gap.
