Pupil Premium

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

Gilded Hollins Community Primary School

Pupil Premium Strategy 2017-18

 

The Pupil Premium is additional funding provided to schools. It is allocated according to the number of pupils who are eligible for free school meals (FSM). A smaller amount is allocated according to the children of service families, and a further allocation is made for pupils who have been ‘Looked After’ (in care) for 6 months or more.

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

In 2012, funding was extended to include pupils who have been eligible for free school meals within the past 6 years. This is known as ‘Ever 6’.

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. However, schools are to be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families. Measures in the annual performance tables capture the achievement of those pupils covered by the Pupil Premium.

Below is a summary of Pupil Premium expenditure during 2016-2017 and the impact this had on pupil progress. Additionally, information is also provided for how Gilded Hollins plans to use this year’s Pupil Premium allocation in 2017-2018. Please note: Pupil Premium pupils are now termed ‘Disadvantaged’.

 

In 2017-18 the Pupil Premium allocation is £1320 per child and £1900 for Previously Looked After Children (PLAC).

 

‘It is for schools to decide on how the pupil premium, allocated to schools per free schools meal pupil, is spent since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupil within their responsibility.’

At Gilded Hollins Mr D Nash, the Headteacher, has overall strategic responsibility for the Pupil Premium. He is supported by the Deputy Headteacher, Mrs C Burns.

Our Pupil Premium Governors, Mrs Liz Haworth (Chair of Governors) and Mr Ian Jones (Vice Chair of Governors) meet with Mr Nash to plan, monitor and review the Pupil and Sports Premium provision.

In 2017-18 Gilded Hollins will receive a total of £13,500 Pupil Premium funding plus an additional £300 Service Child allocation.

As of September 2017, the number of Pupil Premium children on roll is 10, with one Service Child. Gilded Hollins currently has no Previously Looked After Children.

 

Barriers to learning for disadvantaged pupils in our school community

All Gilded Hollins' pupils are respected as unique individuals. We recognise, therefore, that our disadvantaged pupils each face individual circumstances that could prevent them from fulfilling their potential.

However, in general terms, many of the barriers faced by our children could fall under the headings below:

  • Experiential deprivation
  • Poor language acquisition due to limited experiences in early childhood and beyond
  • Limited access to educational enhancement experiences such as visits out, participation in physical activities, residential holiday opportunities
  • Limited perseverance, resilience and aspiration
  • Attendance
  • Behaviour i.e. pupils with specific social and emotional needs which impact on learning
  • SEND cognition and learning difficulties
  • Health

We aim to tackle each need individually, offering bespoke support for each pupil. For example, if a disadvantaged family is unable afford the cost of an educational visit, we will fund attendance on that trip; if a disadvantaged pupil arrives at school without having had breakfast, we offer a funded place at our Breakfast Buddies club; if a disadvantaged family alerts us to the fact that they cannot afford to replace uniform, we will offer financial help from that child's funding.

 

Impact of Pupil Premium on standards and pupil wellbeing

Detailed below is a breakdown of pupil achievement in 2016–17 in the areas of reading, writing and maths. School was allocated £26,700 for this period. Please note, actual numbers for eligible children differs from each cohort and is relatively small in each. This can significantly skew percentage figures.

Monitoring the impact of the Pupil Premium on Disadvantaged pupils

Feedback will be given to governing body each term and progress will be a priority at termly Pupil Progress Meetings between members of the senior Leadership team and teaching staff. Tracking grids will clearly chart the progress of identified pupils at regular intervals. Gilded Hollins has two Governors - Mrs Liz Haworth (Chair of Governors) and Mr Ian Jones (Vice Chair of Governors) - with responsibility for Pupil Premium and these meet with the Pupil Premium Lead (Mr D Nash, Headteacher) to monitor spending and progress.

Review

Gilded Hollins School Governors with responsibility for Pupil Premium will review our 2017-18 strategy in Autumn Term 2017 and again in the Summer Term 2018. The efficacy of our Pupil Premium Strategy will be measured via analysing the attainment and progress of the pupils to whom it applies; and by considering the impact on other barriers where appropriate. This could include attendance and punctuality data, investigating behaviour logs, pupil health and wellbeing questionnaires and discussion with the school learning mentor, by considering attendance at after-school and before-school clubs, by participation in music tuition, and by attendance on residential trips and other visits.
