Main Barriers For Eligible Pupils

The main barriers to learning for our children come into 2 categories:

  1.      Social – Some of our more disadvantaged children and their parents are unable to afford the cost of Educational Visits. There is a feeling of embarrassment amongst some parents towards Pupil Premium and they do not engage with school in the support provided.
  2.     Educational – Some of our disadvantaged children lack home support in terms of reading and educationally in general. Some of our parents also lack the education required to be able to support their children academically at home with homework etc. 20% of children receiving Pupil Premium funding are also classed as having SEN. This has an impact on attainment and achievement.
  3.     Parenting- Some families are in need of support with parenting and family issues. This can take a large amount of time in school.
  4.     Some families have aspiration for their children to do well the pressures facing these families mean the current family life struggle is too hard for them to prioritise supporting long term educational outcomes e.g. Families needing early income into the households or children becoming self-sufficient quicker.

Rationale Behind Spending

Our Pupil Premium money has been spent to support the issues of social, educational and parental support. Every child receiving Pupil Premium Funding has been allocated additional sessions of 1:1 reading and homework support per week. There has been a wide range of intervention groups to support Educational needs and parents have been able to access support from various local agencies under guidance/meetings with Mrs Johnson. All children had trips and visits paid for, including the Year 6 Castlehead Residential, this ensured that no parent felt they had to ask or refuse to pay for Educational Visits and that all children were able to attend. The purchase of additional resources ensured that all children had some form of support at home in terms of resource if they were stuck with homework, this is in addition to the weekly homework groups Pupil Premium children accessed.

 

 

How Will the Impact be Measured?

-      Pupil Attainment and Progress data

-      Attendance data

-      Pupil questionnaires

-      Soft feedback such as monitoring records, parent and staff feedback and learning mentor records.

 

 

Impact of Pupil Premium 16-17

-      Data ( SEE BELOW)

-      Provision of funding for all children to attend Educational trips and visits has reduced stress on families who felt ‘embarrassed’ not to pay for trips and visits. Children have been more engaged in the learning when accessing a broad and balanced curriculum supplemented by trips and visits. Therefore ensuring more children are making good progress across school.

-      Use of TAs across school to provide additional reading and homework sessions has ensured that more children make at least good progress in reading when compared to their peers. More children have completed their homework when they have had the provision of additional resources plus TA support to explain and support with the task.

-      Allocation of member of SLT to support children and families receiving Pupil Premium has ensured families are able to approach one member of staff in confidence and support is offered in a timely and appropriate manner. TAF support is offered to a small number of families but multi agency work is also evident.

-      Provision of additional 1:1 or small group sessions with TAs has ensured gaps in children’s knowledge are reduced through targeted support in order to boost progress.
