Pupil Premium

 

Pupil Premium at English Martyrs’ Catholic Primary School 2017 ~ 2018

 

This is a Government initiative aimed at "narrowing the gap" in achievement between children who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) and other groups in school. At English Martyrs’ Catholic Primary School, we have higher than average numbers of children eligible for FSM so have been allocated this additional funding.

 

In 2017/2018, the Pupil Premium allocation is £86,940.

 

Some of our more children face a variety of barriers to learning. These range from issues within the family setting leading to low levels of support for Maths and English skills ~ for example, not being able to read daily at home or learn basic arithmetic and Maths skills. Some children are at risk of becoming persistent absentees as a result of family situations. Some of our vulnerable children have a need for additional emotional and social support as a result of loss, bereavement, significant changes in family circumstances.

As a result of these needs and in keeping with our Catholic ethos and values, all staff at English Martyrs’ Catholic Primary School work together to provide a stable, caring and supportive learning environment for all our children, especially the more vulnerable. We use the Pupil Premium Grant to help us achieve these goals by using it to provide:

 

o Developing Maths training throughout school to raise standards, particularly for the most disadvantaged by providing bespoke Maths Intervention for vulnerable children through the Every Child reads programme

o Continuing our pastoral/nurturing support role and work on Attendance~ developing the role of our Behaviour Mentor to incorporate regular (twice weekly) work with our vulnerable Persistently Absent children and their families.

o Developing ‘Nurture Support’ to support some of our more vulnerable children.

o Developing Bereavement Counselling for ALL vulnerable children.

o Continuing to subsidise our quality enrichment activities, Educational Visits and visitors in school.

o Continuing work to develop firmer home-school links.

o Continuing Professional Development training as needed in order for all staff members to support children’s learning.

o Booster group sessions in our KS1 for Reading through Reading Recovery and Better Reading Partners; and Inference support in KS2.

o Booster group sessions in our KS2 for Maths, Reading and Writing; with targeted support in Year 6.

o Maintaining and enhancing teaching assistant hours so that ALL vulnerable children have a Key Worker throughout the school day.

o Improvement and enhancement of computing resources and uses in order to provide excellence and enjoyment in learning.

o Enabling school to provide 3 Teaching Assistants to run the school Breakfast Club.

 

"Narrowing the gap" is only able to take place at English Martyrs’ Catholic Primary School because we have a rigorous and robust tracking and monitoring system to ensure all pupils, regardless of their starting point and personal situation, are making sufficient progress in order to meet and exceed their own personal targets.
