Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium 2016 to 2017

Tibberton School continues to benefit from Pupil Premium and Pupil Premium Plus funding that the government introduced in April 2011. The funding is directly allocated to the children to ensure that funding reaches the pupils who need it most.

 

The Pupil Premium is allocated to our school and is clearly identifiable. At Tibberton CP School we can decide how the Pupil Premium is spent. The school and Governing Body monitor the impact of all spending and interventions, including the Pupil Premium.

 

This financial year (2016 to 2017) the school will receive a total of £13,300 for Pupil Premium and Pupil Premium plus children.  The money is carefully allocated at the start of the financial year in order to support the children and to ensure we have the best spending of the budget.  As children move up year group in the school the staffing is moved to reflect the support needed in each class.  As the funding crosses two academic years we plan to use it for the summer term and then change  the plan for the following two terms as appropriate.

 

Next year we will be using the PP funding to supplement the following-

 

  • 1 to 1 support for specific children and small group support in KS1

  • Class support, social and personal skills activities and small group activities in KS2 classes

  • Close the gap interventions in both KS1 and KS2- staff support children with specific steps to close their gaps with their peers.This is delivered daily in small groups.

  • < > Staff training for social skills delivery for specific pupils
  • If a child with PP funding enters the reception class in September 2016 the funding will be reviewed and support allocated or increased where needed.

     

    At Tibberton CP School we support all our Pupil Premium pupils. We do this by providing high quality teaching, supplemented by interventions to support vulnerable learners as and when required. We pride ourselves on providing social, personal and emotional support as well as resource and academic support.  This is often unquantifiable but makes the most difference anecdotally.  Our Pupil progress meetings ensure that the each child is monitored and supported holistically.

     

Pupil Premium 2015 to 2016

 

The government introduced the Pupil Premium Grant in April 2011. This grant is additional to main school funding it is a funding stream that provides financial support for children who qualify for extra support.  There is also a funding stream called pupil premium plus that supports children with greater needs such as those in care.  The funding is directly allocated to the children to ensure that funding reaches the pupils who need it most.

 

The Pupil Premium is allocated to school and is clearly identifiable. As Schools are best placed to assess how the Pupil Premium is spent, they decide what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.

 

We do this by providing high quality teaching, supplemented by interventions to support vulnerable learners as and when required. The school and Governing Body monitor the impact of all spending and interventions, including the Pupil Premium.

 

In 2015 to 2016 the school received a total of £15,520 for pupil Premium and pupil premium plus children.  The money is carefully allocated in order to support the children who are in receipt of pupil premium.  These children are all indifferent year groups and have different needs.  The funding was spent on-

 

  • 1 to 1 support for specific Children

  • Small group support

  • Class support

  • Social and personal skills activities supported by a member of staff

  • Close the gap interventions- staff support children with specific steps to close their gaps with their peers.This is delivered daily in small groups.

  • Trips and school lunches

  • Resources and equipment

     

    The impact of this funding is measured over the academic year.  It is measured against attainment, progress and personal development.

Personal Development

Staff report that the small group support and 1 to 1 interventions are impacting positively on the children’s morale and confidence. The Pupil Premium has supported these children and allowed them access to activities support and resources that would otherwise be difficult to access. From social games to school trips the use of Pupil Premium allows children to enjoy and flourish in all areas of school.
