Our Lady of Hartley Catholic School Pupil Premium Strategy

Date: March 2017

Date of next review of Pupil Premium: July 2017

Academy Lead for Pupil Premium: Ms P Begley
 

Background:

 

Pupil Premium funding is a government initiative designed to target resources to those pupils deemed to be from a disadvantaged background. Specifically, the Pupil Premium money is for those pupils who have been on Free School Meals (FSM) at any point over the past 6 years (Ever6) or those children who have been looked after continuously for at least 6 months (CLA). For the year 2016/2017 the Pupil Premium has a value of £1320 per eligible pupil in primary education and £935 per eligible pupil in secondary education (£1900 for those who are looked after or adopted from care). Neither the government nor any government agency has dictated how the Pupil Premium money should be spent, but what is clear is that the money should be used to promote strategies which narrow the attainment gap between the highest and lowest achieving pupils, and which enable eligible pupils to thrive, particularly if they demonstrate high ability.

Overview of Our Lady of Hartley Catholic School’s Strategies for improving the performance of pupils who are disadvantaged

 

 

At Our Lady of Hartley Catholic School, the main barriers to educational achievement that pupils in our school who are disadvantaged face are:

  • Lack of access to extra-curricular activities
  • Low levels of parental engagement
  • Social and emotional needs
  • Poor attendance
  • Low expectations and aspirations.

 

We will spend our pupil premium funding in the following ways to address these barriers.

  • Family Liaison Officer
  • School Counsellor
  • SENCO release time
  • Subsidising outings and extracurricular activities
  • Additional Classroom support
  • CPD for all staff- AFL and growth mindsets
  • Small group and individual interventions
  • Equipment and resources.

 

Our rationale for spending the money in this way is:

  • The Sutton Trust Research.

Our Lady of Hartley Catholic School’s Results 2016 – Attainment and Progress of pupils eligible for Pupil Premium funding

 

New school accountability measures are as follows:

 

  • The proportion of pupils meeting the revised national standard
  • Scores measuring the progress made by pupils by subject from similar Key Stage 1 starting points

 

This is the first year that these measures have been the main accountability measures. It is therefore difficult to make year on year comparisons.

 

The table below provides headline figures for pupils who are disadvantaged. These pupils attract pupil premium funds. The headlines are compared to national average outcomes for pupils who are non-disadvantaged. The national averages for similarly disadvantaged pupils are shown for information.
