Pastoral Interventions

Total Costs: £20,600

Additional pastoral support is provided by our Inclusion team and Family Liaison Teacher such as attendance support, social and emotion skills and transition support.

 

Our dedicated pastoral team have supported both children and families throughout the period of lockdown and during the phased return with mental health and well-being support. Nurture groups are set up and run each term after identification of children needing the resource. High quality personalised provision is in place as needed for PP pupils.

 

Interventions

Total Costs; £29,500

Specialist teachers have supported children with PP and additional SEND needs to make good progress in focussed interventions.  They provided additional time to allow teachers to pre-teach and deliver catch-up programmes to target children who are at risk of falling behind. Using PiXL assessments key marginal children (with PP) are supported in groups to close gaps in their learning.

Enrichment

Total Costs: £10,460

The school uses part of the funding to provide staff the capacity to run after-school sports and art and academic clubs to provide access to wider opportunities for our PP children.

The clubs are varied and cover a range of skills, hobbies and sports that the children love.  This provides them with safe spaces to mix more widely and enjoy taking part in activities that would not normally experience.

Tracking and Monitoring

Total Costs: £7,500

Through the combined use of Target Tracker and PiXL we have accurate information to ensure that children with PP grant make the best progress they can.  PiXL provides detailed analysis and therapy sessions as needed and Target Tracker enables us to use data to target support where it is needed. Teachers are confident in what the gaps are in children’s knowledge and use therapies in addressing them.

 

After periods of Lockdown the use of PiXL quizzes and transition assessments have enabled leaders to focus on where support is needed and respond quickly to gaps and lost learning.

 

 

Total expenditure: £102,960

 

What are the Key Strengths with Pupil Premium Provision

 

What are the areas for Development?

Tracking of Pupil Premium children is robust and personalised learning is targeted.

 

Identification of the barriers to education are known by our Pastoral team and support is put in place as needed.

 

Parent partnerships are strong and valued by both the families and the school.

 

Boys’ writing attainment for PP children is an area to target through PiXL interventions.

 

Aspirational workshops and enrichment clubs have been restricted due to the global pandemic and these will be reinstated as soon as guidance allows.

 

Mobility for PP children remains higher than non-PP children and additional support is needed for these families.

Barriers to Address

 

Low starting points, lack of educational aspirations and poor parental engagement with home learning

 

 

Pupils eligible for PP often have poor/delayed language and communication skills.  Speech and Language interventions are key for progress to be made.

 

 

Poor emotional resilience, diet, self-regulation skills and attendance impact on pupils’ abilities to work and accept challenge in their learning.

 

 

Lack of access to enrichment activities and extended home-learning for pupils eligible for PP restricts their knowledge and love to learn.

 

 

Attendance rates for pupils eligible for PP is below that of non-PP peers.  Pupils have reduced school hours and are missing out on quality first teaching and causes them to fall behind.

 

Children arrive at school late and not always ‘ready to learn’ – poor routines, lack of equipment/uniform and unhealthy diets impact on their attitudes to learning.
