1st April 2016 – 31st March 2017

The FSM pupil number on Census Day in January 2016 was 8 on roll, not including Ever 6 children.  The indicative budget allocation for the financial year 2016/17 is once again £1,320 per pupil.  Based on the 8 FSM pupils and 4 x Ever 6 pupils this brings our allocation to £16,420, including the additional amount of £580 for one previously LAC pupil.

Spending has been allocated and forecast on the following basis:

Contribution to SEN Assistant salary costs supporting one individual (LAC) pupil 1900
Contribution to one to one & small group work teaching for 1.5 days, 8 hrs pw
(increase is due to 1% pay award & higher national insurance employer’s on-costs)
13623
One to one after school booster sessions, taxi & resources for individual Y6 pupil 980
Cool milk cartons delivered daily for eligible pupils 250
Contribution to residential trip in May 2016 384
Contribution to extra-curricular sports and music clubs 350
  17487

This shows that we spent all of our allocation in 2015/16 and we are likely to spend more that the full amount of our indicative budget for the 2016/2017 financial year.


Impact on Pupil Progress

The progress of our pupils is closely tracked and our aim is that pupil premium children will make at least as much progress as non-pupil premium pupils.  In the 2015-16 academic year, 10 out of the 12 pupil premium pupils made their expected progress or more in reading, 11 in writing and 11 in maths. This data shows that the effective allocation of pupil premium funding has had a positive impact on outcomes for those pupils. In the 2016-17 academic year, we will continue to fund teacher led individual and small group targeted interventions for pupil premium and ever 6 pupils. We will also continue to allocate funds to support the individual needs of these children in order to remove any barriers to learning and facilitate maximum progress.


Pupil Premium 2014/2015 and 2015/16 

Pupil Premium Funding for the financial year 2014/15 was initially set at £14,300, based on 11 FSM pupils on roll at January 2013.  When the budget was set in April 2014 £1,080 was allocated to Curriculum Professional Services and the remaining £13,220 to Teaching Assistant salaries. 

The allocation was later increased to £20,800 for the full year, based on actual figures of 11FSM pupils, plus 5 Ever 6 pupils.  In addition to this we also received £3,800 for our 2 LAC children.  These two pupils both have full time individual support and these funds of £3,800 contribute towards the overall salary costs of their SEN Teaching Assistants who work on a 1 to 1 basis.

We have spent the £20,800 allocation for the 2014/15 financial year as follows: 

ActivityExpenditure

Volunteer Reading Helpers x 2 for 3 terms from April 2014 – March 2015

£ 1,080
Cool Milk deliveries for FSM pupils £ 335
Contribution to board and lodging element of Residential trip May 14 x 7 pupils £ 609
Targeted work, 1:1 & small groups in school day by 2 Teachers £ 3,500
Additional LSA hours 1:1 & small groups of pupils £ 2,600
37 sessions at Breakfast Club for a pupil with poor attendance Jan – March 15 £ 111
Contribution towards Classroom Assistant salaries for Teaching Assistants £ 13,220
Total spent £ 21,455

FSM pupil numbers for the Census Day in January 2015 was 8 on roll, not including Ever 6.

The indicative budget allocation for 2015/2016 has been based on last year’s pupil numbers and so the actual allocation is likely to be lower at only £17,160 and an adjustment will be made later in the year.  This money has been allocated in the April 2015 budget on the following basis:

ActivityExpenditure
Contribution to teaching for 2 days per week (A0201) Teaching staff   £ 17,400 
Cool milk cartons delivered daily (D1005) Catering Provisions  £ 350
Classroom curriculum resources (D4001) Consumables £ 620
Contribution to visits & residential in May 2015 (D4004) Educational visits £ 900
Contribution to extra-curricular clubs (D4009) Professional Services £ 1,900
Total £ 21,170

In September 2015, we used part of the pupil premium funding to employ two part-time learning mentors. These highly experienced teachers provide support and intervention to key children, ensuring that they achieve their full potential. This support may be provided within a group situation or on a 1:1 basis as appropriate.

The progress of our pupils is closely tracked and our aim is that pupil premium children will make at least as much progress as non-pupil premium pupils. Our data shows that these pupils are making good progress and achieving well. We therefore know that the additional pupil premium funding has had a positive impact on attainment and progress.

As a small school with small cohorts, one child is approximately 7% of their year group. This must be a consideration when analysing school data. The tables below give a comparison between pupil premium and non-pupil premium data for 2014-15.

Pupil Premium 2013-2014

The allocation of Pupil Premium grant for this academic year is £20,800. It is intended to be used to provide 1:1 tuition, support for enrichment and personalised resources for individual children.

The following list is a summary of how we spent our pupil premium funding during the last financial year;

  • Milk for our children who are eligible for free school meals.
  • Fees for the Achievement for All programme which helps parents to engage in their children’s learning.
  • Supply cover for staff working with parents of pupils on the AfA programme to set targets for their children.
  • Support for individual children, both more and less able, in order to ensure that their rate of progress is maximised.
  • Booster sessions for small groups of pupils.

During the current financial year, we will continue to use our funding to support those vulnerable learners, to ensure that they make at least their expected progress and to prepare them for life in modern Britain.

This was used to support and develop learning and for enrichment activities and resources.The children who received support had improved outcomes in their educational attainment as evidenced through tracking and monitoring.
