Early Years Pupil Premium

The pupil premium grant is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.

It is well documented that high quality early education can influence how well a child does at both primary and secondary school, so we strive to make the most of this additional funding in the early years so to break down barriers to educational achievement. 

P.P Strategy 20-21

  • We currently have 30 children who are eligible for Pupil Premium funding this academic year.
  • The allocated grant this year is £300 per child.
  • The main barriers to educational achievement are highlighted using our assessment tool Target Tracker. Please see the table and analysis below which explains how we put in appropriate interventions to close the gaps between P.P and Non-P.P children.
  • This is also one way we measure the effect of the P.P interventions.
  • Our Pupil Premium strategy is under constant review which is guided by the Standards and Progress Reports which are made every term.

In 2019-2020 the Early Years Pupil Premium budget was used to enhance P.S.E.D and C.L.L using our artist in residence Lorna Rose. She worked specifically with children focusing on creative activities that addressed gaps in attainment. The assessments of the children by the end of the academic year, although this was effected by the pandemic showed this to be a successful and progressive intervention.

This year we will use Lorna again to provide a wide range of creative methods, techniques and activities to meet the needs of our P.P children.

Pupil Premium: 

  • The differences between pupil premium and non pupil premium children continue to be significant in some areas however, the gap between pupil premium and non pupil premium has narrowed within a term.
  • In PSED the gap has narrowed by 35%, UW 11% and in Maths 18%. When compared to the baseline attainment. This demonstrates that intervention work with pupil premium children is having a positive and substantial impact.
  • The majority of pupil premium children are working at age related expectations or above in  CAL, PD, PSED and EAD.
  • The majority of pupil premium children are working at below age related expectations in Maths and Understanding of the World.
  • Pupil progress meetings to focus on narrowing the gap within these groups of children from Autumn1- Autumn 2 . This will be a continued focus during the spring term

 

Pupil Premium 2020-2021

This academic year 2020-2021 an Early Years Pupil Premium intervention has been designed to fit with the evolving situations due to Covid 19, which at some point has affected attendance and accessibility for all children.

Using the data processed by Target Tracker a collection of boxes have been created to address specific attainment gaps. They include a basic pack of tools and equipment - pencils, paper, glue, scissors, string, and a wide range of open-ended materials aimed at the particular area of learning. For example, a mathematics box will have multiples of open ended materials, a ruler, different scale objects, geometric shapes, grids and number lines to support the child in a play-based learning investigation.

This intervention can take place in school or when necessary, at home and is supported by videos with ideas on how to engage with the materials.

The pictures that follow show some of these boxes being put together.
