pupil premium

 

At All Saints' C of E Primary School, we believe that all children are entitled to an education that allows every child to achieve their potential regardless of their starting point in life or personal circumstances. The government believes that the additional funding provided for Pupil Premium children is the best way to tackle those inequalities to enable children to have the best outcomes.   

At our school, a Christian ethos underpins all that we do and aims to develop everyone to their full potential. We want to work in partnership with all members of the school community to provide the very best education we can for each of our children; we firmly believe this to be the right of every pupil. We will strive to supply every child with a rich, varied, challenging and inspiring curriculum and the conditions in which each can achieve his or her full potential to the highest possible standard. We view each pupil as an individual and consciously avoid stereotyping disadvantaged pupils by referring to them as a group – we never assume that all disadvantaged pupils face similar barriers or have less potential to succeed.  We at All Saints' wholeheartedly believe in this and the Christian values that we live by have helped shape our spending.

WHICH PUPILS ARE ENTITLED TO PUPIL PREMIUM?

Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is provided to all schools to support pupils within the following categories:

  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Income-based Job Seekers Allowance

If you need any help, please speak to Mr. McShane (Assistant Head) or Mrs.Vickers (School Business Manager).  It will not affect any other benefits you are claiming and no families will know that you have registered.  We will treat all inquiries in a discreet manner.

WHAT IS PUPIL PREMIUM SPENT ON?

The decision about how the individual schools use their Pupil Premium is left to each school with the expectation that they will close the gap in attainment and progress between those eligible and other children nationally. “It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.” (DfE). Therefore, schools are free to spend the PPG as they see fit. However, they will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support these pupils. Measures are included in the performance tables which capture the achievement of those disadvantaged pupils covered by the grant.

 

 

 

In September 2021,  EEF Guide to the Pupil Premium was updated and published by the Education Endowment Foundation.  This supports schools in spending their Pupil Premium to maximize the benefit for their students. The report recommends schools take a tiered approach to Pupil Premium spending. Teaching should be the top priority, including professional development, training and support for early-career teachers and recruitment and retention. Targeted support for struggling pupils should also be a key component of an effective Pupil Premium strategy; as well as strategies that relate to non-academic factors, including improving attendance, behaviour and social and emotional support.  As a school, we have used the information and research within this report to guide our spending of Pupil Premium money.

 

HOW IS FUNDING USED AT ALL SAINTS' C OF E PRIMARY SCHOOL?

At All Saints' C of E Primary, we use funding in a range of ways to support all pupils including those who qualify for Pupil Premium.  

Class teachers and teaching assistants know which children are identified as pupil premium and in termly pupil progress meetings, all children’s progress is monitored closely on a case-by-case basis.  At the end of the academic year, we then analyse the impact of any additional support, interventions and strategies used to ensure they provide the best value and that progress has been made and use this to feed into subsequent years’ strategies.


In order to continue to improve provision and raise achievement for all children in receipt of pupil premium funding, we have completed the Pupil Premium Strategy Statement 2021-2022.
