Pupil Premium Strategy
The Pupil Premium (PP) is designed to ensure that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most. The funding is allocated to Local Authorities and schools with pupils from Reception to Y11 who are eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last six years, are looked after or adopted.
The total amount allocated to the school for the financial year 2018 to 2019 is £62300.
The key barriers to future attainment for our children are:
- Social and emotional issues affecting learning behaviours that support independent learning and resilience.
- Reading, spelling, punctuation and grammar skills limiting writing ability across the curriculum.
- Confidence in basic maths concepts/number skills limiting mathematical progress.
- Parental engagement/partnership with school in supporting child’s learning needs.
How we will spend the funding to overcome the barriers.
- Engagement with the Achievement For All (AfA) programme with a focus on improving the progress and outcomes of our pupil premium children (£6000)
- 1:1 sessions working on specific social and emotional issues with SENCO (£2500)
- Emotional behaviour training for staff (£750)
- Overtime payments for TAs to attend training (£500)
- Every Child Counts teacher providing weekly maths intervention groups for Y2 and Y6 pupil premium children (£5000)
- Additional teaching days in Reception to help pupil premium children achieve early learning goals (£3000)
- Additional TA hours in Reception Class – two mornings weekly (£2000)
- To improve the number of PP children achieving the expected standard in phonics the school has increased the TA provision in Y1 by two days (£4000)
- To accelerate progress of PP children in maths in Y6 an additional maths teacher has been employed to teach a third maths group Jan-May 2019 (£7000)
- To help parental engagement/partnership with school in supporting child’s learning needs the school employs a home/school link worker (£6000)
- To provide additional TA in class support in all phases (£17000)
- Additional teacher to provide experiential curriculum enrichment activities and events – Artsweek, Vikings, WWII, Egyptians, Romans, Greeks role-play days (£5000)
- Early morning small group pre-tutoring for pupil premium children in Y2 and Y6 (£3000)
- To help support independence and resilience the school pays for PP children to attend residential trip and day trips where necessary (£4000)
- Breakfast and after-school club sessions (£1000)
- Extra-curricular clubs support (£1000)
- Pupil Premium Strategy training for senior leaders to help develop school PP strategy (£500)
How we will measure the impact of the funding.
- We use both internal and external data to measure the impact of the Pupil Premium Grant on our pupils’ learning. We will review the effectiveness of the interventions we are using and adapt them to meet need when and where required.
- We will closely monitor PP children to ensure good progress, at least in line nationally and with each full cohort in school in GLD, Phonics, Reading, Writing and Maths (and the end of KS2 GPS test).
The next review will be July 2019
Pupil Premium Impact 2018 MATHSThis table shows the average standardised scores for pupils in each year group following our summer Maths assessments. *The Y6 standardised scores are taken from their end of Key Stage 2 SATs. The other year groups standardised scores are taken from our internal maths assessments. Pupil Premium groups who have not achieved an average of 100+ are target groups for support in 2018/19.

Pupil Premium Impact 2017/2018 PROGRESSAt John Hampden School we assess whether or not children are working at the age-related expectation. If a child is working at the age-related expectation in one year group we expect that they will then be working at at least the age-related expectation in subsequent year groups. Expected progress is measured as a score of 6. The following table compares the average progress made by our Pupil Premium children and our Non-Pupil Premium (other) children. The progress of our Pupil Premium children is broadly in line our Non-Pupil Premium children and better in many cases.
