Desired outcomes and how they will be measured

Success criteria

a

Ensure that disadvantaged children achieve just as well as non-disadvantaged children by the end of KS2 in terms of progress made across the year or across the key stage in the case of year six PP children.

Ensure that disadvantaged children who are on the SEN register and not projected to make ARE by the end of key stage two, make measurable progress against phase objectives.

PP children will achieve at least in line with outcomes for non PP children by the end of the school year and at least in line with national outcomes for non-PP children.

PP Children on the SEN register who do not achieve ARE by the end of the school year will be able to demonstrate progress from their start of year point using internal assessment processes

b

Ensure that vulnerable children receive appropriate pastoral support from the ELSA/ class teacher when needed in order to reduce the impact of home circumstances on children’s ability to attend school and learn.

Children who are referred to the school ELSA make good progress with their area of pastoral needs.

c

Ensure that the needs of  individuals who demonstrate challenging behaviour are met through in and out of class support and that staff who work with them are able to use effective strategies

Levels of exclusions of PP children are decreased and incidents of poor behaviour are reduced for identified individuals through appropriate support mechanisms being in place (LSA in class support)

d

Improve identified children’s attendance through support and intervention from the ELSA and other staff measured through the SIMS attendance data

Absence levels are reduced and attendance is improved with a reduction in lateness where it is an issue. All PP children will have at least 95% attendance rates at school

e

Ensure that all FSM/ Ever 6 children have equality of access to resources, activities and other opportunities, measured by financial support provided from the Pupil Premium money.

Attendance at clubs, activities, residentials, trips and other events by FSM/ Ever 6 children and financial support provided to enable this to happen

Review – scheduled 11/2019, 02/ 20, 07/20

Teachers provide PP children with high quality feedback to impact on their learning

Teachers to spend time working alongside PP pupils during each lesson and to ensure that PP children receive high quality feedback in their books which brings about improvement. Marking provides explicit next steps for pupils and these are acted on by children

Feedback studies tend to show high impact on learning of quality feedback to children

Pupil progress meetings at each milestone. PP leader to monitor books to gauge level of feedback provided by the teacher and the responses of the pupil that then follow.  Lesson observations to include focus on the quality of input received by PP children from the class teacher and LSA.

Monitoring

Staff lead

Review – scheduled 11/2019, 02/ 20, 07/20

Vulnerable children receive 1:1 or small group pastoral care and support when referred, requested or identified by staff by ELSA

To work with identified children to effect positive change on learning, behaviour and social and emotional development.

Children with anxiety and medium level mental health needs often fall between class support and CAMHS support so the ELSA role can provide liaison with parents, teachers and child to address vulnerabilities to aid development in learning, behaviour and social/emotional development.

Identified children are supported in their learning by leading practitioners from across the school

Deputy head and head teacher to teach a small group of children on a daily basis to help them achieve ARE by the end of year six. To begin from January onwards

Small group work from highly skilled experienced practitioners will impact on outcomes. This approach has impacted in previous years in bringing about significant progress.

Head/ DHT/ PP lead to monitor outcomes for pupils through Progress review meetings with year six team and children moving fluidly between groups to ensure their needs are met.

Dept head / year six leader

 

Identified PP individual receiving individualised 1:1 support beyond normal ECHP support provided to impact on outcomes/ behaviour.

To enable 1:1 specialist support for vulnerable children

EEF research shows that 1:1 tuition can be effective at helping children to make additional progress.

LSA is allocated to a PP child in one year group on the basis of behavioural need. Additional hours beyond those from EHCP Monitoring the learning behaviour of that child by class teacher / lesson observation and the impact that the support is having  on the individual

SENCo / deputy / head

 

All PP children have attendance rates of at least 95% over the course of the year.

Identification of the specific PP children for whom attendance is an issue and create plans to cater for these children on an individual basis., Use the school based system (new) of red, amber and green letters to increase attendance and then individual meetings for identified children. Consider early help hub referrals for where persistent absence is an issue

Children who are in school regularly and miss less school have better outcomes while those with regular absence often fail to make the necessary progress

Half termly monitoring of all children across the school to look at absence levels and immediate responses from the school office for those identified children for whom absence is an issue. Half termly letters out to parents indicating the children’s levels of attendance and lateness.

Cost

Teachers provide PP children with high quality feedback to impact on their learning

Teachers to spend time working alongside PP pupils during each lesson and to ensure that PP children receive high quality feedback in their books which brings about improvement. Marking provides explicit next steps for pupils and these are acted on by children

The feedback given to pupils by teachers helped to impact on the learning that they make. Pupils are expected to respond to this feedback and this has helped them progress with their learning.

To continue with this approach next year and re-inforce with teachers the need to ensure that PP children receive this feedback to enable them to make progress.

Teacher time to ensure that feedback is good quality and SLT time to monitor the levels of feedback

Vulnerable children receive 1:1 or small group pastoral care and support when referred, requested or identified by staff by ELSA / external councillors

To work with identified children to effect positive change on learning, behaviour and social and emotional development.

The impact of intervention time with the ELSA / councillors can be considerable. The teachers recommend that the ELSA completes sessions with identified PP children and these help build self-esteem and relationships in school which ensure that children continue to attend regularly. There were 0 exclusions of PP children over the course of the academic year.

To continue with internal systems of referral by class teachers to the ELSA (or where appropriate to external agencies who come in and work alongside specific children.

ELSA time (who is employed for 22 hours a week (accounted on 50% of time provided)

Relax kids sessions £300

Identified children are supported in their learning by leading practitioners from across the school

Cost

Qualified teacher to provide 1:1 or small group support to identified child

To provide high quality 1:1 qualified teacher learning support for underachieving children eligible for FSM/ Ever 6

Additional teacher working primarily alongside identified children in year six impacted on outcomes across the year group through directed support. Data outcomes indicated the success of the support for individual children 

When available this is an effective resource to target individuals but is an expensive option that is not always possible to sustain within financial constraints.

Teacher time supporting small groups and individuals (Staff salaries)  

LSAs employed across the school to help support the learning of PP children as part of in class provision

Ensuring that support is provided by LSAs in lessons and through the delivery of intervention sessions where needed for PP children

Individualised support when targeted in class has a significant impact for PP children in school. Withdrawal programmes also help to contribute to their needs.

LSAs having an increased knowledge of the needs of the PP children in class needs to continue to be a priority for the year ahead

Cost of LSAs employed in the school. (Based on 25% of LSAs cost in school)

LSAs additional support for individuals  and in class support for PP children

To enable 1:1 specialist support for vulnerable children

Has allowed  for individualised support for PP children or providing the opportunity to enable the class teacher to support PP children through work completed with other members of the class

To continue to provide 1:1 support for identified PP children who are also in receipt of EHCP – at greater levels than those allocated in EHCP hours – needed to meet the needs of these children to enable them to make progress

Additional LSA hours dedicated to individual children beyond EHCP hours allocated (Based on 25% of LSAs cost in school)

Training

Provision of appropriate training for ELSA / LSAs / teaching staff working alongside identified children

Attendance rate of PP children last year was 94.28%

This was particularly affected by 2 PP children with attendance rates of less than 80%. One was on a reduced timetable and had ALP support during the year. The remaining children had an average of over 95%

Need to continue to monitor the attendance levels of individual children and continue to focus on PP children’s levels of attendance as Pp children had lower levels of attendance compared to

Staff time to process attendance data

Specific identification of needs of PP children by class teachers

For teaching staff to develop a sound appreciation of the strengths and areas for development for individual PP children through the use of Boxall profile and PEP toolkit

Use of the Boxall profile for PP children has aided teachers with strategies to cater for Pp children where this has been deemed to be useful

Where the Boxall profile/ PEP toolkit has been used pupil needs have been identified and strategies to cater for these needs discovered. The school will repeat the process during staff meetings again this year.

Time of staff at staff meetings

Ensuring  that staff have appropriate reading

resources to meet PP pupils’ needs in reading

To equip the teachers with appropriate resources to support

vulnerable children, especially in reading to address both reading and through the provision of high quality texts to support the writing process – purchasing of new reading materials for use in each year group

Reading materials have increased the interest in reading workshop (guided reading) sessions. The investment is designed to impact on all children including PP children in providing high quality engaging materials

Guided reading sessions have impacted in school. Teacher response has been positive and staff feel the new approach is better promoting reading amongst those who choose to read less frequently at home

£5,000 on new books across the school

£24 on SATS revision books for PP children

£75 on TED materials  (teaching educational disadvantage)

To ensure that FSM/Ever6 children

have equality of access to additional  services

FSM children access to music lessons available if requested

Attendance at after school clubs for those who would benefit from additional opportunities

No music lessons sought by PP children despite attempts to promote. Improved opportunities in these extended areas have positively impacted on the children in terms of clubs attendance

 

 

Continue to promote music lessons and clubs to PP children to encourage greater up take next year.

£2,960 on residentials

£666.49 on non-residential trips

Induction and pastoral support for PP children likely to find transition arrangements difficult to ensure that pupils move on to the next stage of the education equipped with the knowledge needed to be successful

To ensure that there is a smooth transition in and out of the school for PP children, including

specific pastoral support when/if  required including transition meetings for PP children transferring into junior school or out to secondary school

PP pupils completing transition felt well informed about what to expect as part of the transition to secondary school. Where PP children faced particular barriers or were moving to a secondary school without many of their peers the additional experiences significantly helped these individuals

For PP children to complete these additional transition experiences where it is felt they would have an impact for certain individuals

Time of ELSA taking pupils for additional visits to secondary school and leading transition with new PP children (staff salary)  

Support identified children to enable them to complete their homework in a supportive environment

Invite identified children along to after school homework club to ensure that they are supported with the work which they have been set

PP children were individually invited to homework club where they were provided

The uptake from the PP children was mixed and the number of other children who chose to attend the homework club meant that support from teaching staff was limited. Next year the suggestion will be to invite PP children only in an attempt to better support these children
