Pupil Premium Strategy Statement 2018-19

The pupil premium is a government initiative that targets additional money to children who may be facing barriers to learning and require more support in school. The government uses the number of children eligible for free school meals as an indicator for the level of deprivation that may impact on education.

Funding in the first year (financial year 2011-12) was based on the number of children receiving free school meals at the time of the January census. In 2012-13 this was extended to children who had received free school meals at any time during the past six years.

We use this money to provide adults and resources that will ensure that there is little or no difference between the achievement of children eligible for free school meals and those that are not.

It should be noted that the strategies facilitated by the introduction of the pupil premium are planned for the academic year (Sept-Aug) whereas the allocation is received for the financial year (Apr-March)

Statement from the Governing Body

Governors have agreed that whilst the Pupil Premium Grant must prioritise the achievement and well-being of disadvantaged pupils, the benefits of resources and services should, wherever possible, extend to include other pupils, many of whom are also vulnerable.

The provision and impact through Pupil premium is monitored through all levels of leadership and management:

  • Governor meetings
  • Senior leadership meetings
  • Staff meetings
  • Pupil progress meetings
  • Performance Management meetings
  • Continual Professional Development

Governors, Leaders, Teachers and Support staff are collectively accountable for improving the educational opportunities for pupils entitled to the Pupil Premium. The impact of provision and strategies to accelerate pupil outcomes can be seen in the table under the section Impact on Attainment and Progress.

If you have any further questions about pupil premium, or you believe that your child may be eligible for free school meals (which triggers Pupil Premium funding), please contact Mrs Fitzgibbon for a confidential discussion. Please ask at the school office or click on the link below to download the forms you need to complete for this.

Principles

  • We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all the pupils.
  • We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups.
  • In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils we recognise that not all pupils that receive free school meals may 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.

 

P.E and Sports Funding

At Booker Hill, we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra curricular opportunities have a positive influence on concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children. 

Our 2018-2019 "Evidencing the Impact of the Primary PE and Sports Premium"  document can be found here.

The impact of this funding will continue to be closely monitored by the PE coordinator, Senior Leadership Team and Governors at the school.
