Pupil Premium Report 2015 - 2016


Pupil Premium 2015 - 2016

The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools so that they can support their disadvantaged pupils and close the attainment gap between them and their peers. This funding is a ‘top up’ funding and its purpose is to address the underlying inequalities between children who are eligible for free school meals and other children. In 2015 – 16 funding was calculated on the basis of £1320 for each pupil who had been eligible for Free school meals in the past six years. There is a separate Pupil Premium allowance of £1900 for looked after children in care for more than six months and there is related Service Premium of £300 for children of families in the armed services.

How Pupil Premium is used in our school

All children are individuals and the pupil premium is used in a wide variety of ways to reflect this. The provision provided includes direct approaches to ‘Narrowing the Gap’ as well as more creative interventions designed to improve self-esteem, confidence and improve skills in communication.  Pupil Premium funding impacts the wider school as intervention groups and support groups include other pupils, but it is also important to ensure that the individual needs of Pupil premium pupils are met. In the current context we have to ensure that pupils with SEN are given additional support in class, that vulnerable pupils and families are supported and that more able pupils are allocated extra opportunities for extending learning.

2015 -2016

In 2015 – 2016 Charlton-on-Otmoor received a pupil premium allocation of £11,460 ( This included free school meals, service and looked after children).The money was used to support children’s learning through programmes of support including 1:1 tuition and small intervention groups for reading, writing, maths and phonics. We  used some funding to support children’s well being and behaviour including subsidising school clubs, funding school trips. Funding was also used to increase the time available to vulnerable pupils and families who needed additional support.

Pastoral Support. We know that the number of emotional and mental health issues greatly impact the ability of pupils to successfully learn. The support that is offered to families has proved to be invaluable and helps to prevent situations escalating.

Additional Teaching Assistant hours and training: We use our PPG to ensure that we have additional TA cover to facilitate extra support for vulnerable pupils and alternative provision.

Financial Support: For those families who are eligible we offer assistance with uniform, trips and Breakfast Club.

Measuring the impact of PPG spending

Pastoral Support: An ‘open door’ policy each morning ensures that any issues are quickly picked up on and support is offered very quickly. Vulnerable pupils have regular time with a designated TA and this has made a big difference to attendance and self- esteem. The support offered to families and individual pupils ensures that emotional issues do not become a barrier to their learning.

Additional Support Hours: The additional hours ensure that vulnerable pupils are given support to achieve their best.  Behaviour is good and any play time issues are quickly resolved and do not impact learning time.

Financial Support: Evidence suggests that the impact of trips on pupils raises motivation for learning as well as raising self esteem.
