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 2016/2017.

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 East Dene Primary 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 2015/16

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.
