Pupil Premium

Canada Hill Primary School

Pupil Premium Funding 2015-2016

 

Pupil Premium (PP) was introduced in April 2011. Each year the Senior Leadership Team, teachers and governors decide how to spend the Pupil Premium funding which we receive in order to provide the most effective learning environment.

The Pupil Premium is allocated to children who are known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM), Service Children and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months. This will also include pupils eligible for

FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure).

 

Our PP funding for this academic year is: £62,200

This funding will be used primarily to narrow the gap to national expectation for those pupils in receipt of pupil

premium.

Our priorities for PP spending in 2015/16 are:

  • Use of targeted intervention strategies including small group work and 1:1 tuition
  • Employment of intervention teachers to deliver personalised and bespoke programmes
  • Change to the staffing structure for Year 5/6 so there a is non-class based teacher to support underachieving pupils
  • Funding Thrive trained practitioners to support children with more social and emotional needs
    • School Councillor available to support children with social and emotional needs
    • Ensuring earlier identification of pupils’ specific needs and then planning appropriate strategies to support these

needs

  • Teacher release time to review pupil progress termly
  • Develop effective feedback on pupil performance
  • Financial support for clubs, enhanced curriculum provision and offsite visits
