Pupil Premium allocation, use and impact on attainment at Ilsington C of E Primary 

The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is an amount of money allocated to schools through their budget based on the number of children in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM). Each school allocates the grant to provide for the needs of its pupils with the aim of narrowing the gap between the progress and attainments of the lowest achieving children and the national expectations for their year group. The allocation of funds in each school will depend on the school context and the needs of individual children and groups of pupils. This means that there must be a flexible use of the money, that may result in money being allocated differently across schools as priorities may vary year on year. Free school meal cohorts at our school are very small and may include children with special educational needs.

Objectives in spending PPG:

The objective for the use of our Pupil Premium is aimed at improving outcomes for children.

We are doing this by:

  • Targeting specific groups of children, particularly those not yet achieving age related expectations by the use of early interventions across the school.
  • Improving quality first teaching for staff working with PPG children
  • Funding teaching assistant support time to enable specific interventions groups to run targeting literacy and numeracy.
  • Providing additional early morning teaching sessions.
  • Providing additional early morning homework clubs 
  • To subsidise school trips to make them affordable for all - especially year 6 residential

Narrowing the attainment gap

The attainment gap measures the gap between pupils in receipt of pupil premium and those who are not eligible. 1.0 = approximately 1 term of learning.

In writing the pupils are working at -0.2 below age related expectations. Pupils entitled to pupil premium are achieving levels -0.9 behind those not entitled to pupil premium.

In reading the pupils are working at + 2.0 above age related expectations. Pupils entitled to pupil premium are achieving levels -0.3 behind those not entitled to pupil premium.

In maths the pupils are working at +0.8 above age related expectations. Pupils entitled to pupil premium are achieving levels -1.0 behind those not entitled to pupil premium.

Outcomes across all 3 curriculum areas have improved for pupils compared with 2012-13 with pupils working in line with age related expectations.
