Pupil Premium

What is ‘Pupil Premium’?

In 2011-2012 the Government launched its pupil premium funding. The ‘Pupil Premium’ is given to schools based on the numbers of pupils in the school who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM). From 2012-13, it has been expanded to include all children who have been eligible for FSM within the last 6 years. The funding is allocated to a range of initiatives aimed at supporting more disadvantaged pupils, to ensure they benefit from the same opportunities as all other children and to ensure that they reach their full potential.

In addition to FSM the school may also receive pupil premium for any ‘Looked after children’ (Children in Care) or Armed forces children.

At Germoe School, a full evaluation of the initiatives used will take place at the end of the academic year and will focus on academic gains and progress made. It will also focus on how pupils’ self-confidence has developed as a consequence of the interventions. Where appropriate, changes in attendance, behaviour, and attitudes to learning will also be monitored.

Yearly Review

Pupil Premium funding for 2015/16 has supported academic attainment and progress.  It has been equally important in supporting the emotional and social development of children, which will have a longer term ‘knock on’ effect on their academic attainment and progress and their sense of well-being.  Funding has enabled enrichment of learning, both within and outside the curriculum, which children may not otherwise have experienced.

Attainment:

83.3% of pupils achieved expected level in reading, Spag and maths at the end of KS2.

Progress over the year was below average due the the changes in the new curriculum and particular years groups having to make 2 terms progress over just one term. However, progress over the Summer term was above national average; Reading 3.6, Writing 2, Maths 3.2 (average = 2)

The quality of the educational psychologist service and provision has been excellent. The impact has resulted in staff being very well informed (via termly meetings) and the children making good progress. This additional funding has enabled the Ed Psych to work with the targeted children in a shorter time scale than would normally be achieved and work even closer with the classteacher, and in targeting training needs.
