Date of Next Internal Review of Strategy July 2019 (with in-year adjustments if required in  October/December/March
The government continues to provide funding targeted at addressing underlying inequalities and aiming to tackle the disadvantages that some children experience in life. As a school we use the money carefully to ensure that our vulnerable children achieved the best support possible. One of the measures for assessing the impact of this funding is to look at those children who claim free school meals (FSM). Our OFSTED inspection in June 2016 stated that, Pupil premium funding is used effectively to enable disadvantaged pupils to make good progress from their starting points. Clear and specific planning for the use of the funding is focused on narrowing gaps.”

Our end of Key Stage 1 data 2018 demonstrates that the school is continuing to close the attainment gap by the end of Year 2 at the expected standard.

 Barriers to Future Attainment (Current Year groups and whole school )
YR (12) 4 children are on the SEND register/1 child is EAL                    Emotional development, communication skills and attainment in the specific areas are lower for this group than for those who are not in receipt of pupil premium funding.Poor oral language skills on entry into YR which impacts upon progress in reading, writing and maths.
Y1 ((6) 1 child is on the SEND register/1 child is EAL The attainment gap is wide in all three key areas (Reading, Writing and Maths). Focussed interventions are required to accelerate progress and narrow the attainment gap. Three of the children also require nurture.
Y2 (18) 9 children are on the SEND register /2 children are EAL Half of these children are on the SEND Register so targeted intervention is required for academic improvement and to accelerate progress. Focus on language development (spoken and written) for all but particularly for the children who have EAL. The emotional/self-esteem needs of this group need to be a priority.
Whole School A Higher achieving children entitled to pupil premium often make less progress than other higher ability pupils across Key Stage 1.
Whole School B Communication skills – 11/36 have speech and language intervention programmes either at school level or from the Speech and Language Team.
Whole School C Low levels of wellbeing on entry to school or at points during the years YR-2 which inhibits ability to thrive in class.
External Barriers
Engagement of the majority of parents of pupil premium children is low.
E. Attendance and lateness of children entitled to Pupil Premium is lower than non-pupil premium, reducing the time spent in school and creating learning gaps. (This improved slightly in 2017/18 but is still a main factor in closing the gaps.)

How can parents and guardians contribute to the success of the Pupil Premium Funding?

All children in the Reception year and in Years 1 & 2 can have a free school lunch which is funded directly from the government. This is different from ‘free school meals entitlement’.

If your child is eligible for free school meals it is worth registering them as it will have a direct impact on the funding we receive and will maximise the support we can provide. Parental support and involvement is a key factor in ensuring that children make good progress and leave primary school with a good level of literacy and numeracy.

Your child may be entitled to Free School Meals if you are in receipt of the following:

•Income Support
•Income based Jobseekers Allowance
•Income related Employment and Support Allowance
•Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
•The Guarantee element of State Pension Credit
•Child Tax Credit, providing that you are not entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual income (as assessed by HM Revenue and Customs) that does not exceed £16,190
•Working Tax Credit ‘run-on’ – the payment someone may receive for a further four weeks after they stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
