Pupil Premium at Coddington Primary School

Pupil Champion L Penn

 

Pupil Premium information for 2022-2023

 

What is Pupil Premium?

The Government has started a scheme named Pupil Premium. This Pupil Premium is allocated to local authorities and schools with pupils on roll in January 2012 that are known to have been eligible for free school meals at any time in the last six years, also children who have been Looked After for more than 6 months and those children who are from Service families. Since December 2013 this has now been extended to children who are post looked after children and are now adopted, part of a residential order or under special guardianship.

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 and their wealthier peers, by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

What is the intended impact?

Pupil’s progress is closely tracked and monitored to ensure that the next stages of learning are catered for. A suitable intervention, consolidation work or next steps to learning program is then put in place. Once the individual pupil has met the age related or above target they should be able to access their learning at a much better rate.

How is it used?

Schools have the freedom to spend the Premium, which is additional to the underlying schools budget, in a way they think will best support the raising of attainment for these pupils.

5

Assessments, observations, and discussions with pupils indicate underdeveloped oral language skills and vocabulary gaps among many disadvantage pupils. These are evident from Reception through to KS2 and in general, are more prevalent among our disadvantage pupils than their peers.

6

During our INSET day, teachers completed a barrier to learning audit, they also completed observations, and had discussions with parents where they have identified some children with an emotional and social need.

7

Teachers have noted that some PP children have had issues with accessing technology to complete homework tasks. During lockdown PP were the least likely to particate in Zoom / online learning. Lockdown brought up issues around the lack of technology in the home. Children didn’t have the devices to complete their homework tasks. Our times tables and spelling homework is online through TTRockstars and Spelling Shed.

8

Attendance Through analysing the data and conversations with staff lateness was highlighted as a concern for several of our disadvantage pupils. Some of our new PP (refugee) children also have an issue to attendance.

Intended outcomes

This explains the outcomes we are aiming for by the end of our current strategy plan, and how we will measure whether they have been achieved.

Intended outcome

Success criteria

Improved phonic knowledge in KS2.

Observation of Fresh Start lessons across KS2 and records kept show that these lessons take place regularly. Assessment shows an improvement in phonic levels and reading and writing shows improvement in phonic skills being used.

Phonic levels are regularly assessed to check progress.

 

Improve writing attainment for disadvantage pupils.

There is evidence of interventions taking place and these lead to an improvement in writing levels for disadvantage pupils, so they are closer to school expectations.

This year a TA has been employed to deliver extra writing interventions. Progress is monitored every half term, through keeping assessments, moderating children’s writing and through progress in NO More Marking.

Improved maths attainment for disadvantage pupils.

Regular interventions are taking place across school and termly assessments are being used to monitor and evaluate progress.

By 2023-2024 KS1 and KS2 maths levels for disadvantage pupils are now closer to National expectations.

To achieve and sustain improved wellbeing for our disadvantage children.

Pupil questionnaires and parent consultations show wellbeing has improved. Evidence shows that enrichment activities have taken place.

Writing forms part of these year’s SIP. It is also the focus of the PP strategy. A part time PP teaching assistant has been appointed this year to work with PP children across the school. She will be completely focused on improving writing.

Y3 PP writing

GD 12.5%

EXP and above 37.5%

Although the PP children in Y3 made progress with their writing only 38% made expected progress. 2 of the children have complex SEND needs and had some 1:1 support.

Improved oral language across Foundation Stage and children are identified and the programme is assessed and monitored.

NELI

50 children in Foundation Stage 2 took part in the NELI programme.

The summer report from the NELI programme showed only 5 children had language issues in the whole cohort. 3 children (who were also SEND) had clear concerns and 2 had slight concerns with their language.

For 5 children there were no concerns regarding their language. The rest of the cohort were above average and 22 were much above average in their language skills.

 

SALT

13 Pupil Premium children were seen by our Speech and Language support. Some went for assessments whilst others had regular sessions.

To achieve and sustain improved wellbeing for our disadvantage children.

ELSA

This academic year there have been 6 PP children that have accessed ELSA. They have had a weekly intervention either on a 1:1 basis or in a small group. The ELSA teacher has worked in conjunction with class teachers to identify the focus area for support and these have ranged from building relationships, developing emotional resilience and building self-esteem. The length of interventions has depended on each child’s need. Feedback from sessions has been overwhelmingly positive. 

We are currently looking to expand ELSA provision from September 2022 and a teaching assistant is being trained in the Autumn term to deliver ELSA sessions every afternoon.

 

ENRICHMENT

8 children attended weekly enrichment sessions.

Comments from the children during our Pupil Voice report.

‘It helps me when I get stressed.’

‘Come out of class, have a breather, relax, do fun things, and go back to class. Helps me feel calm.’

‘I like it because we do fun stuff, nice to have a quiet space.’ 

One child had a very negative response to my Pupil Voice in the Autumn term, but in the summer term it was a lot more positive, and she liked school a lot more (although she still disliked maths).

 

Magic Maths

Years 3 to Year 5 (20 children) Pupil Premium children attended 6 Magic Maths sessions on a Friday afternoon. These were paid for out of the PP budget.

During my Pupil Voice meeting the children all said they really enjoyed the Magic Maths Sessions.

Challenges

This details the key challenges to achievement that we have identified among our disadvantaged pupils.

Intended outcomes

This explains the outcomes we are aiming for by the end of our current strategy plan, and how we will measure whether they have been achieved.

Provision maps are recorded every term to ensure the provisions in place are relevant and measurable. Parents/carers are invited in for formal parents evening twice a year and informally once a year. Parents and Carers are encouraged to contact their class teacher if they have concerns and similarly the class teacher will contact parents if they are concerned that the expected levels of progress are not being made.

Mrs Penn is the Pupil Premium champion who can offer more support if it is felt necessary by parents/carers and class teachers. (l.penn@coddington.notts.sch.uk)
