Pupil Premium at Wigmore Primary school

Wigmore Primary School is committed to ensuring that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all children. Appropriate provisions are made for pupils from vulnerable groups, who have social and/or emotional needs through our support groups and dedicated teams that work alongside teaching staff, some of which are not entitled to free school meals. Resources are allocated for intervention groups, which are run by teachers, teaching assistants and subject specialists, to ensure all children have the greatest opportunity to succeed in their learning and meets the demands of the National Curriculum.

 

What are the main barriers to learning for children in receipt of a Pupil Premium Grant at Wigmore Primary School?

 

There are many different social and educational issues that have been identified as barriers to learning for the children with a Pupil Premium Grant. These range from social housing issues, emotional or social immaturity or problems from external sources, behaviour issues and academic development issues. Many of the children on the school’s register show a low academic development when they begin their schooling at Wigmore. This is also reflected in some cases of social and emotional development from pupils.

 

How does Wigmore Primary School use the Pupil Premium Grant to address these barriers to learning and social development?

 

During the financial year of 2016/2017, Wigmore Primary school has used the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) to support these children through an array of different initiatives to meet the complex and varying needs. Funding has been used to provide adult support to vulnerable children through the deployment of highly trained staff with a pure focus on nurturing and developing social skills and funding for on-site family worker support to educate and help families and create strong links between the school and the community. Academic support is provided through the implementation of additional staff to aid with interventions, designed to reinforce learning, while additional teaching staff are employed to provide booster groups for core subjects to extend learning or teach identified gaps in learning. The funding is also used in a much broader sense to create enrichment activities that are run across the school to enhance the learning opportunities of these children. Pupils who receive this funding are also eligible for a discount on all trips and sporting clubs that are held by the school. This further encourages the children to participate in a wider range of activities with additional benefits of developing social skills.

 

How do we track and monitor the resources that are used to support children with a Pupil Premium Grant?

 

Pupil Premium is placed under a three umbrella system to monitor and explain the vast array of activities that take place at Wigmore Primary school using the grant. Every term, tracking forms are sent to each department. Below is a breakdown of the three areas of the umbrella system that is used to monitor the effectiveness of the use of the funding across the school.

 

Social/ Emotional learning and support

PPG funds a large percentage of the nurture teams total cost, and Family Worker support.

This area of support is linked the large need of our community and children’s social and emotional needs. This is the first step in the children’s learning and impacts heavily on their well-being and the attainment in school.

Enrichment of the Curriculum

(PPG funding is used to provide extra learning opportunities to children across the school.

This includes:

  • Funding for the whole school enrichment scheme.
  • Opportunities for reduced payments towards sporting clubs before and after school.
  • Financial support through the reduction of the cost of trips for children in receipt of PPG.
  • Funding for TAs to run lunch and playtime groups.
  • Funding for a sports coach to run an after school club for KS1.

Academic

PPG funding is used to provide adult support and resources to further the learning of children in receipt of PPG.

This includes:

  • Funding for TAs to lead interventions in all year groups.
  • Funding for booster group in Spring 1 for Year 6 SATs preparation.
  • Funding for a part-time teacher to support the development of core skills in year six during three afternoons and after school groups.
  • Allocated time for a book and work scrutiny with a PPG focus to identify areas of need.
  • Provision of resources for the development of reading in lower KS2.

How do we measure the impact of academic progress across the school?

Academic progress across the school is tracked and monitored every half term. Wigmore Primary School currently uses an educational tool called Target Tracker to monitor the learning of all children. This system is used to measure the progress and attainment of children with a Pupil Premium Grant. In addition to this tracking, additional monitoring systems are in place such as measuring development through ‘like for like’ (measuring progress for PPG and non-PPG children based on KS1 results), and progress meetings with teachers.

What is the current predicted attainment for the cohort of 2017-2018?

Intended Outcome

Cost

 

To implement a structured scheme for reading intervention in KS1

An improved progression of learning in this core subject area for the targeted children so they reduce the gap to their peers and begin to meet the requirements for ‘working at.

It is important that our younger children are given every opportunity to advance quickly towards their intended learning goals. This allows them to have access to a greater range of resources that are displayed around the classroom for example.

Measured improvement is made against the criteria specified through the tracking system.

 

Greater than expected progress is made towards the end of year goals as defined by Target Tracker criteria.

£1,600

Outcome: To be reviewed May 2018

 

Deployment of support staff to KS1 to reinforce the teams who deliver reading interventions.

A larger staff presence in this vital part of the school will allow more children to access daily reading and intervention support.

Historically, it has been difficult to develop home reading at Wigmore and as a result reading across the school has been a weakness, especially in regards to KS2 results. The development of early, fluent reading will enable children to have greater access to the curriculum that they are taught.

Greater than expected progress is made towards the end of year goals as defined by Target Tracker criteria.

£6,000

Outcome: To be reviewed May 2018

 

Whole school interventions by support staff.

To provide support with the development of key skills and allow children the opportunity to bridge the gaps in their learning.

When a child is absent from school they could have missed a section of learning that will not be repeated. This intervention will allow that gap to be filled and enhance a child’s understanding. Alternatively, it could be seen as a catch-up group for children who have yet to meet previous attainment targets.

Each intervention has a starting and finishing activity that measures the progress of the child in that area of their learning. This is linked to the school’s whole school provision map programme.

£64,000

Outcome: To be reviewed May 2018

 

Employ a part time teacher to support with interventions for Year 6.

High quality interventions supplementing lesson development.

A targeted high quality delivery of interventions will provide children with an opportunity to narrow the gap to their peers, practise learning and make links to previously taught aspects of core subjects.
