Impact of Pupil Premium 2016/2017

Grenoside Community Primary School Report -Pupil Premium/Disadvantaged pupils 2016/17

Aims

The main barriers to educational achievement faced by eligible pupils at our school fall under various headings.

These include

  • supporting families in challenging circumstances and with restricted financial opportunities
  • supporting children in accessing life experiences
  • providing social and emotional help within school and with outside agencies
  • maximising learning progress and achievement and diminishing the disadvantage

  

Our pupil premium spend is thus focused on ensuring that our provision ‘closes the gaps’ for the pupils falling behind and not on track to achieve age expectation by the end of their primary education. This provision begins in Reception and is targeted across the whole school.

The impact of the pupil premium grant will be measured by end of KS2 results showing that progress.

It will be measured by successful outcomes in increased self-esteem and wider opportunities.

We encourage parents to let us know if their child is entitled to Free School Meals (FSM).

Disadvantaged pupils are identified first for in-class support and are given priority for pre-teaching, gap analysis and small group interventions.    Our pupils are always taught by staff that they are familiar with and who know the school, standards and expectations.

School won the local award in Key Stage 2 category of the Pupil Premium Awards in 2016.

The vast majority of these 55 pupils across school (16% of the whole school cohort) achieved well and made progress from their starting points to close the gap compared to national.  Where there were a few cases of less than satisfactory achievement, interventions and refinements are set to be in place for the next academic year.

In the majority of year cohorts, the disadvantaged children also have additional needs such as SEND or complex medical needs.
