Number of Pupils and Pupil Premium Grant (PPG)
Total number pupils on roll (excluding F1)  148 (January 2018 Census)
Total number of pupils eligible for PPG  (FSM + 6Ever)  74( January 2018 Census)
Amount PPG received per pupil £1320
Total Amount of PPG £97,680

 

Background and Context of PPG
PPG was introduced for pupils eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point over the last six years with the intention of closing the attainment gap between disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged children.  This is at a rate of £1,320 per child 2018.

There are no guidelines on how this money can be spent, although performance tables now contain information about the impact schools have made on closing the gap between different groups.

Schools must evidence strategies in place to raise the attainment of FSM pupils and what the associated costs are alongside attainment and progress figures for this group of children.

The Sutton Trust produced a report assessing a range of strategies which could be linked to Pupil Premium funding and could be used to improve attainment based on effectiveness and value for money.  This will be used at Eastwood Village Primary School to help strike a balance between effectiveness and cost.

Since 2012 Schools have been required to publish details of our PPG on our website, which must include:

  • The amount of the school’s allocation
  • Details of how it is intended to be spent
  • Details of how the previous years allocation was spent
  • The effect of the expenditure on the attainment of the pupils the grant was intended for

This should be an overall breakdown of funding and how effective it has proved.

 

Rationale of PPG
Eastwood Village Primary School is committed to enabling all pupils to achieve to the best of their abilities.  We intend to invest our pupil premium grant in better learning and will, therefore, allocate money to raise the aspirations and achievement of our children from more disadvantaged backgrounds.

 

Objectives
To:

  1. Ensure the basic needs of our children are met so that they are able to access learning eg Maslow’s physiological aspects within the hierarchy of needs.
  2. Ensure children attend school regularly and punctually (in line with the school target) and that no child becomes PA
  3. Enable children to have high self-esteem and self-confidence
  4. Enable children to access school provision in its widest sense eg creative and sporting activities
  5. Provide children with effective feedback so that this helps them gain a clear understanding of what they need to do in order to improve
  6. Involve parents in supporting their children’s learning
  7. Provide children with collaborative learning opportunities eg group intervention support
  8. Provide children with a confident and skilled staff
  9. Support children to make good progress so they attain in line with or higher than national expectations
  10. To accelerate the progress made in reading, writing and maths for identified groups of pupils

 

  1. Close the gap between pupils eligible for FSM with other groups of learners
  2. Provide children with first hand experiences to use as meaningful starting points for learning eg visits and visitors

Pupil Premium Grant Project Spending and Impact 2017-2018

Number of pupils on roll 136     Number of pupils eligible for PPG  61 children                  Grant awarded £80, 520

45% of our pupils attracted the DfE’s Pupil Premium Grant.  Please note this figure is skewed to the detriment of the ‘actual’ rather than typically defined by Government measures, disadvantaged pupils at the School.  The reason for this being that for parents to access benefits and therefore their children have eligibility for the funding, parents need to have lived in the country for 2 years.  Many of our families are new to the country and therefore cannot access the benefits required to secure PP funding. As a result of this most of our children are widely considered disadvantaged.

Total Projected Spend

£ 18,480

 

We have 16 pupils eligible for pupil premium at £1320 each.

Total pupil premium: £21,120

The majority of this money has been spent on additional teachers or teaching assistants in order to reduce class sizes and increase teacher to child ratios.

We intend to subsidise educational visits and residentials to allow us to offer these valuable activities at a more affordable rate to parents.

We have used the remainder of the money to contribute to the running of the breakfast club to ensure vulnerable pupils have a breakfast, attend school regularly and punctually. This all contributes positively to the pupils’ learning.
