Pupil Premium

What is it?

The Pupil Premium is government money designed to help disadvantaged children and young people to do well at school. The funding is allocated to schools for children from Reception to Year 11 who have registered for free school meals in the last 6 years, are in care or have parents in the Armed Forces. For 2014/15 the funding allocated is £1300 per child, £300 for children of Armed Forces families.

How much pupil premium money does our school get?

The pupil premium for 2014-15 is £15,600

How is it spent?

We will be talking to parents and carers of children receiving the funding to ask for the ideas on what will help most. Some children will already be doing well in English, Maths or other subjects. But there may be things we can do to stretch them further, to help them aim high, or to build their confidence – like receiving 1:1 tuition, participating in educational visits , taking part in activities to develop social or language skills, or enrichment activities such as peripatetic music tuition.

Children will receive financial help so that they can take part in trips and other enrichment activities.

If children are behind in English, maths or other subjects, we may arrange for them to have special small group or one-to-one teaching. We call these ‘intervention programmes’. We choose the classroom approaches and intervention programmes that research shows work. The fund was used on staffing last year to provide an extra teacher in Year 1/2 and provide LSA support for children. We also try to fund one to one tuition for those children who have considerable gaps in their learning.

The rest of the fund was spent on enrichment activities for children including school trips, music tuition and after school clubs. 

How will parents know it is working?

We track all children’s progress each term, so we quickly see if plans are working. If your child takes part in an intervention programme we will also measure how they are doing at the start of the programme, at the end, so we can see the difference. We will report to you at parents’ evenings, held in March but if you would like information on your child’s progress at any time, please get in touch with your child’s class teacher.

I am not sure if my child could have free school meals – where can I get more information?

Please speak to the school office staff. They will be really glad to help.

This Academic Year: 2014/15

We have allocated £8,500 of our Pupil Premium to employ an extra LSA with the role of working with children from across both Key Stages on a range of interventions that have been proven to close the gaps in children’s learning.

We have already begun one to one tuition for some groups of children who receive Pupil Premium to close gaps in their learning in Maths.

We are spending a proportion of the money on improving reading outcomes by working with the Beanstalk reading charity.

We provide a wide range of school visits; residential trips and extra-curricular clubs that the Pupil Premium funding can meet the cost of to ensure children do not miss out on enrichment activities.

We can also fund peripatetic music tuition through the funding.

Outcomes for Pupil Premium Children

By the end of Year 2 last year, all children had reached age related expectations in Maths, Reading and Writing.

Sports Premium Grant

Use of funds to date and proposed actions

1. Bought into Corby Oundle and Thrapston School Sports Partnership (COTSSP) Enhanced Model (£2500).

This model provides a member of staff from Prince William School for half a day a week. This member of staff is dedicated to facilitating and monitoring effective use of the sports premium for the duration of the school year. This member of staff is the Sports Premium Officer (SPO).

To date, the SPO has:

  • Reviewed and replaced whole school PE policy
  • Written and begun to implement a PE and sport development plan
  • Facilitated staff training in the change 4 life programme
  • Composed and delivered a school wide survey of physical activity and sport in school and at home
  • Reviewed the PE curriculum and identified areas of development and new schemes of work
  • Identified new assessment structures for PE
  • Created a school sports council
  • Implemented tracking systems to monitor whole school participation in level one, two and three school games events.
  • Implemented budget tracking systems that monitor both spending and impact of spending An increase in level one school games provision
  • Delivered young leader training
  • Provided training opportunities to upskill teachers
  • Increased provision of ‘non-traditional’ sports to enhance participation
  • In lesson support for teachers
  • Gained funding and implemented an Olympic Legacy project alongside the BOA
  • Created links with Northampton Saints RFC and Northamptonshire County Cricket Club through community schemes and player visits.

Benefits to the School

This has benefited the school/pupils by:

  • Taking admin work away from teachers to allow them to focus on curriculum delivery
  • Making the school better prepared for government inspection
  • Providing the baseline measurements for assessing the impact of the sports premium funding Allowing staff to access more training of better quality and relevance
  • Improving PE provision and preparing for the new national curriculum
  • Providing staff with better, more current assessment structures
  • Increasing pupil voice in school
  • Providing pupils with better PE and sport, therefore better opportunities to develop athletic, personal and social skills.
  • Providing a wider range of physical activity, allowing each child to find an activity for life and develop a broader range of skills
  • Increased motivation toward and ownership of learning

The SPO plans to deliver:

  • An improved more able and talented programme for the enhanced cluster of schools A range of coaches to provide subject specific guidance to teachers
  • 100% engagement in level one school games activity
  • 70% of children will access a level two school games activity
  • Full audit of staff needs
  • Full audit of equipment
  • Schools Sports Promotional material

This will allow children to:

  • Move into community clubs and develop their skills
  • Participate in sports they would not otherwise have the opportunity to try Access competition at a level appropriate to their ability
  • Understand the value of living a healthy, active lifestyle
  • Make better choices around diet and exercise
  • Access high quality, appropriate equipment
  • Access outstanding PE and school sport 100% of the time

This will allow staff to:

  • Deliver a wide range of activities
  • Involve pupils in the decision making process
  • Access the best possible training
  • Become more confident in delivering and assessing PE
  • Create an environment in which healthy competition is used as a tool for learning and development

Throughout the year, the SPO will act as point of contact for all school staff who have any questions or support needs around any aspect of school sport and PE.

Being part of the Enhanced Schools cluster also brings rewards in socio-cultural development. The cluster spans many diverse areas and populations, but the areas of need and development are often similar. Working together to solve common problems will help staff development and share good practice. Pupils will meet and compete with children from different backgrounds and cultures, promoting the values of equality and friendship.

Cluster membership also benefits Brigstock Primary, as some training that would otherwise perhaps be too costly to access can be put on by a larger school and attended by our staff as members of the Enhanced Model.

2. Bought into School Games Participation.

This gives access to school games competition and frameworks for the year. Pupils will have the opportunity to compete in a range of sports, with the aim of qualifying for the county (level three) and then national (level four) School Games. This buy in also includes a level one tournament to be run by a member of the hub schools PE teaching staff and key stage four young leaders. This will model good practice to school staff, sports council and young leaders, and provide the blueprint from which future level one completion can be conducted.

3. Young Leaders

Young Leaders has been developed to increase the level of structured sport that takes place on the playground. Year 5 children have been trained up by SPO to deliver a range of activities at playtimes. The Young Leaders decide and plan activities then lead them with groups of children at playtimes and lunchtimes three days a week. Young Leaders follow the School Games Level 1 structure.

4. Real PE

Three members of staff have attended Create Development’s Real PE training. This comprehensive programme provides a whole school scheme of work, long, medium and short term plans, assessment tools and inclusion strategies. It is aimed at the new PE curriculum, focussing on physical literacy and multi skills, using sport as a tool for, rather than a measurement of, development. More information on the programme can be found at http://www.createdevelopment.co.uk/what-is-real-pe/

5. Development planning

Following the announcement that the Sports Premium funding will continue through to 2020, we are working with our SPO to create a long term development plan for PE and school sport. A three year plan is already in place, and we are now starting to plan beyond that. Our overall aims are to provide the best possible provision for our pupils, both in and out of school, achieve our Gold School Games Kitemark and to be rated by OFSTED as outstanding in all areas of PE and sport.

It is essential to the schools continued development and commitment to physical education that the sports premium is used in a managed, sustainable manner. Some schools have invested the grant fully in external providers or into facilities and resources, but are neglecting staff training. The impact of this funding must be longer term, embedding enjoyment of physical activity and healthy living at the heart of everything we do. We have invested in new assessment structures to measure the progress of our pupils accurately, and processes are in place to monitor participation in PE and extra-curricular sport/physical activity.

6. Breakdown of Spending

On reviewing the needs of our school in relation to physical education, we decided that it was wise invest heavily in staff training, mentoring, and a specialist member of staff. Over the coming years, the funding will focus on different aspects of sport and PE, namely promotion of healthy life styles, increased extra-curricular provision and competitive opportunities.

This year’s spend breaks down as follows:

  • Specialist Staff 29%
  • School Games Participation 6%
  • Staff CPD and mentoring 41%
  • Cover/associated costs 9%
  • Resources 12%
  • Extra-Curricular 2%
  • Healthy Living 2%
