Early Years Pupil Premium

Early Years Pupil Premium

The pupil premium grant is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.

It is well documented that high quality early education can influence how well a child does at both primary and secondary school so we want to make the most of this additional funding in the early years which will break down barriers to educational achievement. So far this year we have received £6996 for our pupil premium grant.

Pupil Premium Strategy for 2019-20- Our assessment tool, Target Tracker shows that the prime areas of learning:- Personal and Social Education, Communication and Language and Physical Development are the areas we need to focus on to address our Pupil Premium children’s main barriers to educational achievement.

Last year the Early Years Pupil Premium Money was used to enhance P.S.E.D and C.L.L by using our artist  in residence Lorna Rose and story teller John Godbold.These areas of learning are key to building children’s learning and development. The impact of the loss of full time places for children with disadvantage meant that the gap remained for most children.

CLL: Decrease in PP children at ARA – More children have been added to the group

PD: Gap has closed PSED: Gap has narrowed slightly , but there continues to be a large gap between PP and NPP. Lit: Gap has narrowed Math: Gap has increased. (by 3%)

UW: Gap has increased (10%) EAD: Gap has increased

The Senior Management Team analyse pupil premium data on a termly basis and the current data shows that there is a large gap in personal, social and emotional development between pupil premium children and non-pupil premium children. We also do not want the gap to widen in maths between pupil premium children and non-pupil premium children. So this term Lorna Rose, visual artist and John Godbold, storyteller are focusing their work with pupil premium children on personal, social and emotional development and mathematical development. This has involved the children being actively involved in creative work, interactive storytelling and problem solving. In addition to this weekly group trips within the locality will give the children valuable real life experiences. Such work will boost children’s self-esteem and confidence and will encourage collaborative work which builds and encourages peer to peer relationships.

Our Pupil Premium strategy is reviewed at the end of every academic year in order to put in place the most appropriate interventions.
