Pupil Premium Strategy

Pupil Premium Strategy

2016-17

 

What is Pupil Premium?

 

Pupil Premium is funding allocated to schools for the specific purpose of boosting the attainment of pupils from low-income families. Funding is based on children who have registered for a free school meal at any point in the last 6 years, children who are in care or adopted, and children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces.

The Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) is additional funding for early years settings to improve the education they provide for disadvantaged 3- and 4-year-olds.

 

Funding 2016-17

Our Pupil Premium funding for the 2016-17 financial year is:

Free School Meals / Ever 6: 153 pupils @ £1320 = £201,960

Our Early Years Pupil Premium funding is projected to be:

Economic Reasons: £3,820

No funding is expected for Looked After / Post Looked After or Service Children.

 

Identified Barriers to Educational Achievement

At Arboretum Primary School we value the abilities and achievements of all its pupils, and are committed to providing each pupil with the best possible environment for learning. We recognise that each child is unique and will have different needs, which may well vary throughout their time in the school. We have planned to spend our Pupil Premium funding to try to give them all the support that they need to “Reach for the Stars”.

Arboretum Primary School has identified the following as barriers to achievement for many of our children:

  • Many of our children have a low level of attainment when they join the school, compared to the National average.
  • Children have varied social and emotional needs which impact on their learning in a variety of ways.
  • A large proportion of our children (84% overall) have English as an additional language, and so experience barriers to learning due to their lack of English. A number of children are Direct Entry into the school with little or no English.
  • Due to economic and cultural reasons, many of the children have very limited access to extra-curricular activities and learning experiences out of school.
  • The more able children require effective, differentiated teaching to enable them to also fulfil their potential.
  • A number of our children who do not qualify for pupil premium funding, nevertheless come from very deprived families and have significant social and emotional needs.
