3.1 Barriers to future attainment (for pupils eligible for PP including higher attainers)

In-school barriers

a

Some children eligible for FSM / Ever 6 are not currently expected to achieve Age Related Expectations (ARE) by the end of the school year

b

Some children are vulnerable due to home circumstances which adversely affects school performance

c

Some PP children demonstrate challenging behaviours and have difficulty managing their mental wellbeing which adversely affects their ability to achieve their academic potential

External barriers (issues which also require action outside school such as low attendance rates)

d

Some children eligible for FSM/ Ever 6 have low that average attendance levels

e

Some low income families experience financial hardship

f

The impact on the learning of all pupils by the enforced closure of the school and the loss of learning time.

 

3.2 Outcomes

Ref

Desired outcomes and how they will be measured

Success criteria

a

Ensure that disadvantaged children achieve 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 or who struggle with their mental wellbeing are met through in-class support and out-of-class provision (where needed) and that staff who work with them are able to use effective strategies to enable children to achieve both academically and have good mental health

Levels of exclusions of PP children are minimised and incidents of poor behaviour are reduced for identified individuals through appropriate support mechanisms being in place. Children are better informed about how to manage their mental wellbeing and can use taught strategies which help support their mental wellbeing. 

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. The aim to for all PP children to 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 levels for in-school based activities and on school trips are at the maximum possible by ensuring that FSM/ Ever 6 families are provided with the necessary financial support to allow for this to happen.

f

Create a programme of support for identified children to enable them to catch up on learning, addressing gaps in knowledge where appropriate through intervention/ in class support

The school will identify children who require additional support and provide in class support and additional withdrawal sessions as appropriate.

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 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 by admin assistant and deputy head. Looking at absence levels and immediate responses from the school office for those identified children for whom absence is an issue. Termly letters out to parents indicating the children’s levels of attendance and lateness. Fortnightly checks by the senior admin assistant and the deputy head teacher on levels of attendance of PP children.

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 first part of the academic year. The ELSA also spent a huge proportion of her time during lockdown making contact with families of vulnerable / PP children to check on their wellbeing and support in a number of different ways

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

.

ELSA time (who is employed for 22 hours a week) this accounted on 50% of time provided and more than that during the period of lockdown from March – September

 

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

This approach was not possible in the normal manner due to the closure of the school. The head and deputy were able to continue to support the work of PP children during lockdown through the provision of both in school support for those vulnerable children and out of school support through the production of work and activities for all pupils

To once again plan to have the head and deputy working alongside PP children (along with other children who are falling behind their projected outcomes)  supporting them where there is a need in small groups (which are Covid compliant) in year six in the run up to SATS

Time for the head and deputy each day from commencement in the Spring term. (Staff salaries)

To enable 1:1 specialist support for vulnerable child with specific needs

During the first part of the school year this child was effectively supported on a 1 to 1 basis and this support enabled greater levels of engagement in class than has been seen before and significantly improved behaviour

To continue to use this level of support from a specialised LSA who is able to provide high quality support

Additional cost of hours provided beyond the funded EHCP hours (part of LSA spend)

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

Consider early help hub referrals for where persistent absence is an issue

Levels of attendance across the whole school year were disrupted by the lockdown which shut the school from March – August. There were several PP or vulnerable children who were provided with space in school to ensure that their needs were met as well as possible over the lockdown period.  

To continue to monitor the levels of absence of PP children moving forwards and to take action to address low levels of attendance of PP children on an individual basis.

Time for office staff / deputy to meet with parents / monitor levels of attendance

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

Teacher knowledge of individual children in their classes has increased as a result of using the Boxall profiles for pupils.

Repeat the process with identified children after allowing them some initial time in school acclimatising to the new ways of working.

Time for staff to complete the Boxall profiles in staff meetings

Improved understanding of the needs of PP children through identified training -   Provision of appropriate training for Head / ELSA / LSAs / teaching staff working alongside PP children in relation to wellbeing

To enable staff to access training workshops and guidance that will positively impact on PP outcomes. This will include work with PBS to impact on mental health and wellbeing. 

Relax kids sessions for identified children

PBS ran various workshops in the first half of the school year with a focus on mental health and wellbeing which contributed to the schools’ developing approach towards well-being. It also provided specific guidance for the school ELSA / head teacher and helped develop practice within school

The school will continue to look at ways in which the staff can be supported to develop their professional expertise.

Following advice from the county English advisor the school has adapted its approach to delivering teaching of reading. This has positively impacted on the outcomes for PP children (and other children) in their ability to read with greater stamina and greater fluency

We will continue to use strategies learnt through the training to continue to support reading with all children in school

Training costs – approximately £1800

Staff have appropriate

resources to meet the needs of all PP children

To equip the teachers with appropriate resources to support

PP and vulnerable children, especially in reading through the provision of high quality texts to support the reading process – this would include the purchasing of new reading materials for use in each year group

Children have been able to access more high quality texts during their reading workshop sessions which has been accompanied by updated planning to raise standards in outcomes

Children have appreciated the access that they have had to a variety of texts. We will continue to increase the number of books that we have in school both for in class provision and in the school library.

Cost of spend on books for reading workshop  during the last academic year - £2,500

Pupils have reading promoted so they actively enjoy reading

To purchase PP age appropriate books for PP children to access over the summer holidays to encourage higher levels of reading

Children who may not have been able to access texts over the summer holidays have been provided with new reading materials that has been hand selected to appeal to them

At a time when access to the school library and other local libraries was limited the school felt it appropriate to provide books for pupils to keep at home. Should we have another lockdown this would be considered once again.

Access to additional services

To ensure that FSM/Ever6 children

FSM children access to peripatetic music lessons

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

PP children who wished to take up learning a musical instrument were given the opportunity to do so. Those who expressed an interest were supported financially to do so and lent musical instruments where this was needed or provided with time/ space in school where tis was needed

We will continue to offer this opportunity to PP children wish to study a musical instrument.

3 children accessed these lessons at a cost of £300 per child - £900 total

To assist PP children with homework through targeted support 

Provision of in-school homework club – opened up to PP children during lunchtimes

PP children who found it difficult to access work at home were able to work alongside a member of staff at lunchtimes to complete their homework. This ran for the first 6 months of the year 

Whole this is desirable and something that we would wish to complete again next year, the need to maintain social distancing between children in different bubbles makes this unfeasible at the current time. Should the situation change we will re-consider our position.

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

The usual arrangements for transition were not possible this year due to the school’s closure. However the transition arrangements that we were able to put into place included remote meetings with teachers via zoom and specific opportunities for year 6 pupils to visit their secondary school (if at the main feeder school). There were also opportunities for identified children to visit the junior school over the summer holidays on an individual basis

There is a need to return to return to normal when this is possible and PP children will be individually supported once again in the usual ways assuming that Covid arrangements allow for this to happen.
