We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all pupils.

Nafferton Primary School Pupil Premium 2015/16
  • We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all the pupils in our care.
  • We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, which includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed.
  • In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged.
  • We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals.
  • We reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.
  • Pupil premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals.
  • Limited funding and resources means that not all children receiving free school meals will be in receipt of pupil premium interventions at one time. We look at all our pupils and want to support all our children to achieve their potential. To this end we assess children when they enter the school and monitor their progress on an ongoing basis. When we feel there is a required need for a child we look at putting strategies in place to support that child. 
Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) Allocation for 2015/16 was £59580

Provision
To achieve our aims we strive to keep our teaching ratios as low as possible. We have put an extra part time teacher into Year 3 to teach literacy and numeracy (0.8 of a week). In addition to this, Year 6 being a large year group and a key year in children’s primary school life, we have put an extra full time teacher into Year 6. 

The Year 6 teachers have also worked with gifted and talented children in other year groups in the school to ensure that they are “stretched” and achieve their full potential. 

We have three mixed Year 4/5 classes. We only had two Teaching Assistants being shared by the three classes. Therefore, as Teaching Assistants are a very cost effective way of providing targeted support we appointed an additional Teaching Assistant.

Some of our children with statements have needed additional support this year. Teaching Assistants working with their statemented child have benefited the whole class, by being another adult in the classroom. They have also worked in small pupil groups with their statemented child, which has benefited the group of children involved.

We have released a class teacher (a leading teacher for maths) to work for one afternoon per week with a small group of Year 6 children to support them in preparing for their maths test in the summer term.

Resources
Part of the funding has been used to purchase more intervention materials for pupils we now have quite a few small notebook computers that can be used in the classroom for individual programmes and are still developing software packages. I expect this to carry on into next year when we will buy more targeted resources to ensure we have a full provision across the school. The way licenses are issued for the spelling programme have also changed so this has been an additional cost this year.

Parent Support Advisor
This person works with various families across the school.
The impact of the Pupil premium grant for 2013/14 was:

Key Stage 1 (now in year 3)
  • whilst our figures are lower than last year’s there are a small, but statistically significant number of children that have brought down our overall results. We always strive to teacher the next steps for a child and this may not match up to the expectations of a test.
Key Stage 2 (now in Year 7)
  • We had some great results, 100% of children made at least expected progress in reading, some children (including FSM) achieved level 6.
We monitor children’s progress on an ongoing basis and results are reported to the school governors. In the interest of anonymity I am only reporting on end of Key Stage figures in this document.

I am not comparing FSM to non FSM in Foundation and for the phonics screening check as there was only one FSM child for both sets of data.
