3.   Barriers to future attainment (for pupils eligible for PP)

The school chooses to spend the PP grant to improve whole school outcomes, feeling this is a more effective approach than targeting specific pupils for intervention. This strategy allows levels of teaching and learning to improve across school and this increases outcomes for PP pupils.

 In-school barriers

A.    

Mental health of the pupils who receive the PP grant, including their ability to understand their emotions and manage their own behaviour.

B.    

A continuing need for staff to receive meaningful CPD opportunities, in order to develop their teaching and learning skills.

C.

Some PP pupils don’t have opportunities for meaningful progress in life skills, communication, physical and mobility skills or access to opportunities for generalisation of these skills to non-classroom settings. In particular, pupils with PMLD have had fewer opportunities due to the specific resources that are needed.

 External barriers

D.

Pupils can’t access in-school and external enrichment activities due to family circumstances or a lack of specific resources or equipment which limits the daily activities PP pupils can experience, skills they can develop and the progress they can make.

4.   Outcomes

 

Desired outcomes and how they will be measured

Success criteria

A.     

Identify pupils who are most in need of targeted intervention and their staff to have support incorporating SCERTS into their teaching. The SCERTS assessment will be used to measure their progress and successes.

Specific staff to have more knowledge of the SCERTS model and those pupils be more aware of their own emotions and how to regulate them.

B.     

Staff across school will have opportunities to develop their knowledge of how to challenge, use of continuous provision and setting next steps, cascade this knowledge back to other colleagues at school.

Monitoring and review timetable will show that there is an improvement in these specific areas across school.

C.     

There will continue to be a number of curricular enhancement opportunities throughout the year. PMLD pupils will be targeted and they will access specific opportunities, designed with their needs in mind.

There will have been a number of opportunities for all pupils across school, including financial support for residential trips, and visitors to school.

D.     

No pupil will miss an opportunity in school due to lack of resources and no parent of a child receiving the PP grant will feel a financial pressure from school.

Change in how parents are asked for financial contributions, as well as a higher number of pupils accessing all available activities.

5.   Planned expenditure

Academic year

2018-2019

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.

    i.    Quality of teaching for all

Desired outcome

Chosen action/approach

What is the evidence & rationale for this choice?

How will you ensure it is implemented well?

Staff lead

When will you review implementation?

An increase in staff knowledge around some mental health issues our pupils may face- including attachment.

Touchbase attachment training- £700

Cost of cover for implementation -£ 1300

The school recognised the need for an increase mental health training. Attachment issues are very pertinent and we recognise the specific knowledge needed, this course allows a high level of training that will allow staff to target pupils and implement intervention.

The course is a qualification which staff will need to pass.

There will be in house training on mental health awareness.

 

LC

July 2019

Increase staff knowledge in issues of: continuous provision, extending and challenging and creating the next steps.

£5000- Trust to trust to allow staff to teach in mainstream settings.

 Staff will spend 6 weeks, teaching one day a week in a mainstream setting to develop their knowledge and skills. They will then bring this knowledge back to support other staff within school.

 Once their time in the other setting has finished, staff will feedback to the rest of the staff- examples of good practice and possible strategies.

   ii.    Targeted support

Desired outcome

Chosen action/approach

What is the evidence & rationale for this choice?

How will you ensure it is implemented well?

Staff lead

When will you review implementation?

Beginning to implement SCERTS to support pupil’s emotional literacy and mental health.

Cost of cover for other implementation as needed.

£3000

SCERTS is a proven communication package which includes effective assessment, target setting and teaching materials. Training took place last year and all staff have awareness, however to move this forward, there is a more targets approach needed.

There will be certain pupils highlighted initially and trained staff will work half a day for 1 half term to create a plan and embed the correct strategies.

GL  NO

Pupils who are being targeted will have a PLP target linked to their SCERTS development.

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.

£37,000 2x grade 4 teaching assistants.

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.

Teachers will highlight how additional staffing will help support, in planning. Targets will be set for these sessions and monitored for these pupils alongside planning and PLP targets, as well as impact reports per term.

Assistant Head teachers

Each term, an impact report and a sample of evidence collected.

 iii.    Other approaches (including links to personal, social and emotional wellbeing)

Desired outcome

Chosen action/approach

What is the evidence & rationale for this choice?

How will you ensure it is implemented well?

Staff lead

When will you review implementation?

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

£6000 Financial support for residential and other opportunities

 

£250-sensory storyteller

 

£950 PMLD theatre

 

£2000 Whole school events

 

 

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.

Business manager

Half termly review on spending.

School will adapt practices so that families of pupils receiving the PP grant feel supported and no additional financial pressure. 

£5000- support to class resources such as motivators for communication.

School recognises that by asking for additional money for things such as specific motivators or snacks in class, could add to pressure of families. The impact of this may mean poor attendance or pupils not progressing effectively in areas such as communication.

Staff will review current policies for asking parents for money and choose the most appropriate way to support.

Business manager

Termly

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.

£1000 Money for swimming kits/ hygiene products, waterproofs as needed.

 

£1445 Money to be kept as an emergency fund for staff to apply for if needed.

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.

School recognises the changing needs of pupils who receive the PP grant and sometimes there are unforeseen circumstances, which this money will help support as needed.

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.
