Pupil Premium

SPRINGBANK PRIMARY ACADEMY

USE OF PUPIL PREMIUM FUNDING: 2016 -17

 

Funding available: £ 144,180

The Government introduced the Pupil Premium Grant in April 2011. This grant which is additional to main school funding, is seen by the government as the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers who are not in receipt of this benefit. Children who are in the care of the local authority are also included in this premium. These children have now been re-named by the government as ‘disadvantaged’ children.  Schools can decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.  

Last  year the pupil premium children outperformed other children as outlined in our report which can be accessed below:

We have are using this to plan our provision for the current year. Our vision for the year is to ensure a more holistic approach based on each individual's profile:

  • Seamless intervention where a pupil’s experience is of a cohesive, relevant and impact measured
  • Teacher expertise developed around managing this vulnerability, the resilience of pupils and accessing support from other intervention and coaching teams
  • A coherent approach to intervention is established where a vulnerable pupil’s profile is realised; their needs are prioritised and are met through additional and different provisions.
  • Pupils vulnerability profiles are regularly monitored by the Intervention team and class teachers to ensure intervention has made sustained impact, as measured by data relevant to the intervention.
