Pupil Premium – Planned Expenditure

Academic year

2017-2018

The three headings below enable schools to demonstrate how they are using the Pupil Premium to improve classroom pedagogy, provide targeted support and support whole school strategies.

1: Quality of teaching for all

Desired outcome

Staff will use new whole school systems to improve teaching and learning- including tracking and target setting. The impact will be improved outcomes for PP pupils due to better understanding of needs.

Chosen action/approach

CPOMS- £740

Infomentor- £2016

Staff training- external agencies and time for staff for internal training – £6500

What is the evidence & rationale for this choice?

Due to the government changes in assessment for pupils with SLD/ PMLD the school is creating its own curriculum that is more relevant to the needs of our pupils, we are looking to for a system that will allow us to implement this most effectively. The new systems will monitor curriculum outcomes as well as a behaviour system that will allow us to use data to more effectively track behaviour of PP pupils and compare to non PP peers, putting support in place for pupils who need it.

How will you ensure it is implemented well?

Lead staff for each of these areas have strategic action plans which will be regularly reviewed.

Staff lead

Headteacher / Superusers

When will you review implementation?

End of Autumn term 2017

Then each half term.

Desired outcome

Additional capacity for learning walks and for TLR holders to complete strategic monitoring of teaching and learning, to ensure outcomes for PP pupils continue to be as successful as those non-PP pupils in all areas.

Chosen action/approach

Time and costs for cover to allow this to happen – £5000

What is the evidence & rationale for this choice?

The school needs to strategically develop the role of middle leaders so they can ensure quality of teaching and therefore outcomes for PP pupils in their areas of responsibility. There also needs to be further support to develop the reflective practice of teachers to improve their practice and develop better achievement for all PP pupils.

How will you ensure it is implemented well?

Time will be given to complete monitoring in line with theme action plans.

Reports will be produced and these will be followed up to ensure actions are met.

Staff lead

Assistant heads.

When will you review implementation?

Each term learning walk information will be collated and shared.

Desired outcome

Support from the local authority will work with SLT to identify potential gaps in achievement for PP pupils and ensure strategies are in place to continuously improve standards of teaching and therefore outcomes for PP pupils.

Chosen action/approach

SLA support – £3179

What is the evidence & rationale for this choice?

SLA offers support and monitoring from the local authority to ensure that teaching and learning is effective and challenging, so ensuring appropriate outcomes for all pupils and that PP pupils have the same outcomes as non- PP pupils.

How will you ensure it is implemented well?

Any intervention will be reported and followed with an impact report for governors.

End of each term.

Total budgeted cost
£17,435

 

2: Targeted support

Desired outcome

Begin to develop more effective systems for target setting and tracking of communication skills for PP pupils, particularly those with ASC, which will improve progress made in communication skills.

Chosen action/approach

£200 SCERTS- staff training.

What is the evidence & rationale for this choice?

SCERTS is a proven communication package which includes effective assessment, target setting and teaching materials.
Key staff will receive training and then cascade the training to all other staff. There will be ongoing training by lead staff as needed- as well as monitoring of assessment materials.

GL and NO

When will you review implementation?

End of each term, starting Spring- after training and implementation.

Desired outcome

All PP pupils will access effective PE, curriculum visits and swimming sessions and the impact will be an increase in opportunities for physical development and communication skills and for generalisation.

Chosen action/approach

£25,000 Additional support during physical development activities.

What is the evidence & rationale for this choice?

PE, swimming and curriculum visits are crucial learning experiences which, to be effective, require high levels of staffing. Additional support will ensure all pupils will have opportunities to develop their self- help, communication, physical development and interaction skills.
Targets will be set for these sessions and monitored for these pupils alongside planning and PLP targets, as well as impact reports per term.

Staff lead

Business manager/ LC and assistant heads.

When will you review implementation?

Half term and alongside planning.

Total budgeted cost – £25,200

 

3: Other approaches (including links to personal, social and emotional wellbeing)

Desired outcome

PP pupils will have access to curriculum enrichment activities and experiences which may otherwise be unavailable.

Chosen action/approach

£10,000 Financial support for residential opportunities

£2400 Whole school events

£500 Independent travel passes

What is the evidence & rationale for this choice?

Additional financial support will give pupils opportunities to develop their social skills, independence and have other experiences they wouldn’t otherwise be able to access. There will also be opportunities brought into school to ensure pupils who can’t be taken off site can access these. 
Any activities which used funding from PP spending will be tracked and impact/ progress reports written. Coverage will also be tracked in order to ensure all pupils have at least one experience.

Staff lead

Business manager/ LC

When will you review implementation?

Half termly review on spending.

Desired outcome

PP pupils will be involved in student council and will have an increased feelings of empowerment and self-efficacy by increasing student voice.

Chosen action/approach

£400 Designated amount to spend

What is the evidence & rationale for this choice?

To encourage pupil voice and choice making skills, a designated amount allows pupils to feel empowered and included.
Staff who run student council will work with pupils to develop some areas for development for the school and how best to spend the money in their view.

Follow up sessions will also occur to review pupils’ thoughts.

Staff lead

Student council lead

When will you review implementation?

End of spring term.

End of summer term.

Desired outcome

PP pupils in each year group will have access to specific equipment/ uniform, the impact is they will fully take part in all curriculum activities and as many as their non-PP peers.

Chosen action/approach

£3000 Money for swimming kits/ hygiene products, waterproofs as needed.

What is the evidence & rationale for this choice?

In some situations pupils are unable to fully access the curriculum if home are unable to provide correct equipment or resources, this money will ensure no PP pupils misses out on an opportunity due to lack of equipment.
Money will be allocated to classes/ year groups in line with needs of the pupils and proof of needs. Spending will be monitored and impact tracked.

When will you review implementation?
