Pupil Premium

Nettleham Infant School

Pupil Premium Statement 2017

 

The Pupil premium is a sum of money the school receives for each student who is either in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM) or who has been in receipt of them in the past. Funding is also given to children in the care of the Local Authority (CLA) or for children who have parents/ carers in the armed forces.

Nationally, the statistics show that students within the groups highlighted above do less well than their peers in external exams. The aim of this funding is to close that attainment gap.

 

At Nettleham Infant School we have high aspirations and ambitions for all our children, regardless of their circumstances, and believe that no child should be left behind. As a community we believe that children should have every chance possible to realise their full potential and we endeavour to impart a love for learning and a thirst for knowledge among all our children.

 

We are aware that one of the biggest barriers to children’s achievement can be poverty of expectation and are determined to create a climate that does not limit a child’s potential in any way

 

Provision

 

The ranges of provision the Governors may consider include:

 

  • Reducing class sizes thus improving opportunities for effective quality first teaching and accelerating pupil progress
  • Providing small group work with an experienced teacher focussed on overcoming gaps in learning
  • 1-1 support
  • additional teaching and learning opportunities provided through learning mentors, trained TAs or external agencies
  • Uniform support for individual students
  • Assistance with the cost of curriculum trips, curriculum activities and other school trips
  • Transport costs for students coming from outside of our designated area or who have to make a contribution to their transport.
  • Support for extra-curricular activities such as out of school sports clubs to enrich the experience of students in receipt of FSM

 

Key Principles

 

Our School Mission Statement is:

 

‘Nettleham Infant School Inspiring the HEART of Learning’

 

The schools aim is to provide a culture and ethos where;

  • We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all of the pupils.

  • We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed

  • In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged

  • We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. We reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.

  • Pupil premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals. Limited funding and resources means that not all children receiving free school meals will be in receipt of pupil premium interventions at one time.

 

Analysing Data

 

As a school it is our duty to ensure that:

  • All staff are involved in the analysis of data so that they are fully aware of strengths and weaknesses across the school

  • We use research and external advice to support us in determining the strategies that will be most effective

 

Identification of Pupils

 

As a school we will ensure that:

  • All teaching and support staff are involved in identification of pupils

  • All staff are aware of who pupil premium and vulnerable children are

  • All Pupil Premium children benefit from the funding not just those who are underperforming

  • Under achievement at all levels is targeted, not just lower attaining pupils

  • Children’s individual needs are considered carefully so that we provide support for those children who could be doing ‘even better if…’

     

Improving Day to Day Teaching

 

We will continue to ensure that all children across the school receive good teaching with and increasing percentage of teaching being outstanding.

  • Set high expectations

  • Address any within school variance

  • Ensure consistent implementation of school policies and procedure, e.g. marking and guided reading

  • Share good practice within the school and other schools we work with and draw on external expertise

  • Provide high quality CPD for staff

  • Improve assessment through joint levelling and moderation

 

Increasing Learning Time

 

We will maximise the time children have to ‘catch up’ by

  • Improving attendance and punctuality for all children

  • Providing earlier intervention

  • Extending and enhancing learning through in school clubs and out of school clubs

 

Individualising Support

 

There should never be any stigma to support and many children and families will need intervention at some point throughout their time in school.

 

We will ensure that the additional support we provide is effective by:

  • Looking closely at the individual needs of each child and identifying any barriers to learning academic, social, personal or emotional.

  • Ensuring support staff, teachers and external agencies communicate regularly and effectively

  • Using well trained TA’s to provide high quality interventions.

  • Matching the skills of the support staff to the intervention that they provide.

  • Working with other agencies to ensure good quality expertise
