Pupil Premium

Coppetts Wood Primary School Pupil Premium  

 

The Pupil Premium was introduced by the Government in April 2011 to provide additional support for looked after children and those from low income families. The extra funding is made available to help them narrow the attainment gap between pupils from disadvantaged and more affluent backgrounds. From April 2012 the Pupil Premium was extended to include children who had been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years. It now also includes children who have been adopted from care or are subject to Special Guardianship.

The introduction of the Pupil Premium was particularly welcome at Coppetts Wood where there has been a long standing commitment to ensuring disadvantaged pupils achieve as well as they can and receive the support they need.

Pupil Premium funding  does not cover the costs of all of the school’s initiatives to support disadvantaged or vulnerable pupils. The school receives additional deprivation funding from the Local Authority as well as Pupil Premium which together fund our overall support for disadvantaged pupils. 

As with all of our funding, the School Governors, Head Teacher and Teachers will decide how to use the Pupil Premium allocation, as they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for individual pupils. The Department for Education indeed directs that it is for schools to decide how the money is spent, but that we must report annually as to the impact that this additional funding has had for our children. We measure the impact in a variety of ways (see below) and review the strategy  annually at governors.

 

PRINCIPLES

  • We ensure that all funds delegated to the school are used to provide the best possible outcomes for all children in the school
  • We organise teaching and learning at Coppetts Wood in order to meet the needs of all children.
  • We ensure that appropriate provision is made for children who belong to vulnerable groups and that socially disadvantaged children have their needs adequately assessed and met.
  • We will allocate Pupil Premium funding after a needs analysis to identify priority groups and individuals.

 

2019 / 2020

Budget:£105,600 (expected)

The barriers and challenges disadvantaged pupils face at Coppetts Wood are complex and varied – there is no single difficulty faced by all. We are a one form entry primary school, with a vibrant and diverse school community. Many of our children speak a first language other than English at home there are a high proportion of children with Statements of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND), due to our resource base for children with Speech and Language difficulties. Our children may face barriers to educational achievement due to a variety of reasons such as low income, unsettled family arrangements, issues with housing, attendance and low levels of spoken language on entry. We plan to minimise these barriers through rigorous data anaysis and planning to address gaps, quality first teaching and high quality support.

 

Our provision includes:
 - Providing a breakfast club in order to ensure the best possible start to the school day
- Providing targeted booster groups focusing on English  and Maths to increase achievement
- Enabling all children to access enrichment opportunities such as trips
- Part funding an HLTA to provide support to identified children/groups and Teaching Assistants to provide additional  high quality support
- Part funding a teacher to target particular classes/groups and increase achievement
-Part funding Pastoral Manager and  Learning Mentor to ensure good attendance, provide pastoral support and reduce barriers to learning
- Purchasing additional hours of Educational Welfare Officer  time to ensure that children's attendance issues are rigourously addressed
