Barriers to future attainment (E.g. Characteristics which pupils eligible for PP are more likely to display)

In-school barriers (issues to be addressed in school)

  1. A.

Communication skills, especially the development of early oral language, tend to be lower for pupils eligible for PP than for other pupils, which slows progress in other years.

  1. B.

Reduced reading comprehension, especially in KS2, due to limited receptive vocabulary and experiences.

  1. C.

Lack of confidence and writing skills due to limited language acquisition and real-life experiences.

  1. D.

Reduced social and emotional development (inc. mental wellbeing) of PP pupils impacts on their readiness to learn.

Reduced resilience in PP children to challenge themselves and be aspirational.

  1. E.

Reduced Reasoning skills due to lower language acquisition, resulting in lower attainment in Maths compared to ‘Other’ children Nationally in KS1 and KS2.

External barriers (issues which also require action outside school)

F.

Attendance and lower punctuality % rates are lower for PP pupils than for other pupils; this affects their attainment and progress.

G.

Parental engagement for some PP pupils is not as strong as for other pupils, (i.e. completion of homework and reading at home) and this affects attainment and progress.

Parental awareness and opportunities to support children in English due to own negative school experiences and possible low aspirations in this area.

Desired outcomes (Links to 20171-8 School Improvement Plan)

 

Success criteria

  1. A.

Improved language acquisition; accessing the curriculum at the pupils level.

(SIP objectives 4.1, 5)

  • Diminish difference between % of PP achieving ARE in Reading Specific Learning Goal, compare to School Non PP and LA PP.

(2017 - 6% Difference School Vs Nat Other)

  • Continue to build on positive trend and diminish difference in Prime Learning Goal of Language and Communication

(2017 Data -13% to Nat Other)

  1. B.

Increase the % of KS2 Pupil Premium pupils in the Middle Prior Attainment band achieving the expected reading standard, to at least in-line with National ‘other’ data.

 

As a result, this increase will enable the cohort meet the FFT target of 66% meeting the expected standard in reading. (17% GD)

 

Diminish difference in all cohorts between PP and Non-PP in Reading.

 

(SIP Objectives 2.2, 2.6, 4.2)

  • 100% of KS1 2a children (15) to achieved at least the expected standard in Reading. (2017 Data 71% 10/14 Chn achieved)
  • At least 75% of the 8 PP (2b) Prior-attainers to achieve at least expected standard at KS2, in-line with National data.

(2017 Data 33% 3/9 Chn)

  • At least 50% of the 2 PP (2c) Prior-attainers to achieved expected standard in Reading. (2017 – 20% 1/5 Chn)
  • % of PP children making good or better progress is in-line with Non-PP children. (Early Essence, Chris Quigley Depth of Learning and National Tests to be used to assess progress)
    • As a result of raising standards in KS2 Reading, it will increase the % of PP achieving at least expected+ in KS2 RWM combined.
  1. C.

Increased confidence and positive attitudes to writing across school.

(SIP objectives 2.2, 2.5)

  • % of PP achieving ARE in Writing Specific Learning Goal will at least be in-line with % of Local Authority Non-PP (2017 – 71%)
  • Diminish the in-school difference at Expected standard+ in Writing between PP and Non-PP in all cohorts.
  1. D.

Improved positive learning behaviours and learning stamina through the adoption of the whole-school Growth Mindset Ethos e.g. confidence in talking about learning, participation in lessons, readiness to learn, resilience are noted in formal and informal monitoring.

(SIP objective 2.3)

 

  • Pupils feel safe and happy so that they can access learning at all levels, and know where to find support should they need it. Measured and evaluated by Pupil Interviews. Monitored in AHT formally and informally.
  • Peer and self-feedback in books.
  • Increased attendance of PP children due to attendance at Breakfast club, Walking Bus, mentoring.

 

  1. E.

Increased confidence in reasoning in Maths resulting in an increase in PP children achieving expected Standard at KS1 and KS2.

(SIP objective 2.7)

  • PP children will achieve the expected standard in KS1 Maths so that the cohort is at least in-line with PP Other children.

(2017 – Maths only subject where Nat Other outperformed KS1 School PP)

  • Increase in % of 2b Prior Attainers achieving expected at KS2

(2017=46% to 2018 Target =60%)

  • The increase number of children achieving expected standard in Maths will contribute to reducing in-school difference between PP and Non PP RWM combined at KS1.

(2017 Data: EYFS Nat Other = 80%, KS1 Nat Other = 77% & KS2 Nat Other = 75%)

  1. F.

Increase in attendance and reduced late % for PP children to diminish any in-school difference between the attendance of PP and Non-PP children throughout the school.

(SIP objective 3.1)

 

 

  • Ensure the vast majority of PP cohorts meet the School Target of 96% Attendance.
  • Diminish difference in the vast majority of cohorts between PP and Non-PP % Attendance.
  • Reduce the % difference in lates between PP and Non-PP in each cohort From Sept to July 2018.
  • Reduce the % difference in lates between PP and Non-PP for each cohort, comparing 2016-17 data each half term.

 

  1. G.

Parents engaging with school staff in developing learning partnership between home and school, to include increased home reading, homework completion and attendance at information events.

(SIP objective 3.4)

  • Parents will be able to access in school support to enable them to support their children at home.
  • PP Reading attainment and progress in EYFS, KS1 and KS2 to be in line with School Non-PP Reading Attainment and progress.
  • School’s weekly homework club is attended by at least 80% PP pupils to support homework activities.
  • Increase number of parents attending events in school to support learning at home e.g. stay and play, stay and read, meet the teacher expectation evenings, Parents evening.

Improved language development leading to diminishing difference in all subjects

Improved use of teaching assistants to support Wave 1 QFT, including improved deployment, preparedness and practice (see MITA) (including changes to hours and payment for 5 training days)

Monitoring of TAs’ work as part of robust PM systems for all staff (see Ofsted Pupil Premium 2013) shows improved performance and learning outcomes in supporting language development and independence across the curriculum in the majority of cases.

EEF Toolkit Predicted Impact:

Teaching Assistants (+1 month)

In-school data suggests better impact than this, based on pupils outcomes from e.g. WAVE 2 interventions.

 

 

This approach will be continued, with high quality 1:1 support and training offered to those members of staff who need it. Continue to find appropriate areas for training e.g. specific intervention training, Blooms questioning, opportunities for Growth Mindset, effective scaffolding for independence.

£35 000

Quality of Wave 1 High Quality teaching increased so 80% is at least good with 30% outstanding

 

Standard of learning and teaching is the best it can be for all pupils through a range of training

All teachers accessed a range of training to encourage all pupils to use, and become increasingly able to describe, metacognitive and self-regulatory strategies in their learning. Formal and informal lesson observations are beginning to produce evidence of pupils developing the desired capacities.

Improved social and emotional development

 

Increased attendance rates for PP pupils

Inclusion team: 0.8 SENCo, FT Child Protection Officer, FT Parent Support Adviser, PT Emotional Care Leader, PT Learning Mentor

 

Attendance, punctuality and behaviour data shows sustained improvement for the majority of targeted pupils, including a smaller proportion of ‘Other’ pupils. Improvements in behaviour have resulted in greater engagement in learning for all pupils during formal and informal lesson observations, enquiry walks etc.

EEF Toolkit Predicted Impact:

Social and Emotional Learning (+4 months) Behaviour Interventions (+4 months)

Parental Involvement (+3 months)

Pastoral work to continue with appropriate refinements prompted by monitoring data.

 

More focussed approach to Pupil Premium Attendance and Punctuality from Sept ’17 through tracking and regular meetings between PP Lead and Attendance Lead.

Improved language development (leading to diminishing difference in all subjects see also F and H in 2016-17 strategy)

WAVE 2 interventions in e.g. SONIT phonics interventions, FFT, ALK

Comprehensive termly data for all interventions for 2016-17 demonstrates impact in the vast majority of cases.

Repeat the interventions next year, with some fine-tuning in the light of experience, and to more closely meet the needs of varying cohorts. Match the interventions to more closely focused barriers to learning, using the School’s ‘Value for Money’ document.

£10,000

(also SEND funding)

Raise standards in Maths

Employ a 1:1 ECC teacher

Intervention made a significant difference to the mathematical development of the 16 participating PP children (see individual evaluation data).

Repeat the intervention next year.

£25 000

Increase standards in Reading.

Reading interventions by additional adult support with eg KS1 PP children who are behind ARE - ECaR.

Reading test scores demonstrate impact of interventions for most participating KS1 children (see data on additional evaluation sheets for each intervention by pupil) but less impact noted in KS2.

EEF Toolkit Predicted Impact:

One to One tuition (+5 months)


Reading Comprehension Strategies (+5 months)

Oral Language Interventions (+4 months)

Using ‘PP Value for Money Document’ adapt reading interventions to maiximise impact.

Enhanced provision in 2017-18 for PP reading and will form part of the whole-school priority of raising standards in KS2 Reading.

Pay 2 organisations to recruit and train volunteers to hear children read; renovate library.

Reading ages of participating PP (and to a lesser extent Other) pupils show accelerated progress during the course of the intervention. Library renovation completed and more children using and borrowing books, especially those eligible for PP.

 

Continue the additional reading.

Increase profile of reading – add to School Improvement Plan.

Increase clarity on reading expectations in Teaching and Learning.

To enrich life-experiences for children to stimulate and engage further learning.

Broadening pupils’ horizons by providing experiences, such as theatre and music groups, trips to local places of interest, and ingredients for cooking in the curriculum

Pupil and parent satisfaction and pupil engagement ratings show gains during the academic year, and language acquisition through additional experiences.

  • Interventions focusing on both academic outcomes and parenting skills are more effective than interventions addressing either aspect in isolation.

(NFER Research Report into Parental Engagement, 2013)

Continue with this valuable and inclusive use of the funding, whilst developing additional, more focused and accurate measures of impact, especially in academic-related outcomes (e.g. vocabulary, use of language, logical thinking, cultural appreciation).
