Bhylls Acre Primary School

Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is allocated to local authorities and schools with pupils on roll that are known to have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any time in the last six years; for Looked after Children (LAC) and for service families.

2018/2019 – Pupil premium funding is used to provide school with a HLTA. In addition to good quality first teaching, intervention is provided to support learning needs. Our children come to school with different barriers to learning, emotional and aspirational. In order to improve wellbeing, all pupils are encouraged, with support to have high aspirations, all teachers and teaching assistants have high expectations of pupil achievement.

School has the freedom to decide how this is allocated and to assess what additional provision should be made for individual pupils and how it should be delivered.

At Bhylls Acre Primary School we believe that all pupils should be taught to at least a good standard or higher, according to their individual needs. In order to accelerate progress and narrow achievement gaps we use a range of additional interventions. Our pupil premium fund for 2019/20 is £26,640 and this is calculated using the following information.

How we will use our Pupil Premium funding:

A respected research body called the Sutton Trust has looked at how money can be used most effectively to support pupils. We have used this research as the basis for designing our intervention programme for pupils eligible for Pupil Premium funding. According to the Trust’s findings, effective feedback for learners helped them to make the next steps in their learning. On that basis, the majority of our spending for this year will be on giving pupils regular, timetabled opportunities to review their work with support in order to respond to teachers’ marking and ‘close the gap’ feedback.

For 2019/20, we are committing our pupil premium funding to support the roles of higher level and teaching assistants who are able to support accross ability ranges.

Other spending will be targeted at ensuring equal access to the curriculum through resourcing and provision of enrichment activities.

Comparison between Pupil Premium and all other pupils gives us an indication of how well we are meeting the needs of the group.  Our analysis of performance takes place half termly and outcomes are shared with the Governing body.
