Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium

 

What is it?

The pupil premium is a grant given to schools for each child who currently claims free school meals or has done so in the past. 

 

How do we spend this money?

We use this money to support individual children and groups to make progress.  We make sure that it impacts on the children positively by improving their literacy and mathematical skills, as well as their social and emotional well-being.

 

At St Brigid's we use a range of strategies to support children's progress; some of these include

  • Teaching assistants 
  • Interventions
  • Pre and post teaching of skills 
  • Extra-curricular clubs 
  • Speech and Language Therapy 
  • Play Therapy
  • Counselling services 
  • Optiminds brain training

  1. Barriers to future attainment (for pupils eligible for pupil premium)

There are a number of in school barriers to be addressed at school level;

Desired outcomes

 

Success Criteria

Low starting points on entry to Nursery with increasing number of children with additional needs

Accelerate progress from Nursery to the end or Reception

Aspiration targets for end of Reception achieved.

Group of children with below expected speaking and listening skills in Key Stage 1

 

Children make at least expected progress and the gap between themselves and their peers narrow

Interventions narrow the attainment gap in KS1

Progress data

 

Children have difficulty applying place value and calculation to  reasoning and problem solving in mathematics  

Children problem solve and reason as part of the daily maths session; this ensures children within the range of 90-102 make more than expected standardised score progress over the year

 

All children make best progress in mathematics

Social, emotional and mental health needs

Continue to improve the social and emotional health of pupils eligible for pupil premium  

 

Identified children are working towards silver behaviour and some have achieved this. 

Limited exposure to rich and varied experiences

Visits and experiences engage children with learning.  These experiences create memories and enthusiasm for learning.
