Pupil Premium

Accountability

The government believes that head teachers and school leaders should decide how to use the pupil premium money within their own schools and are then held accountable for the decisions they make through:

- the performance tables which show the performance of disadvantaged pupils compared with their peers

- the Ofsted inspection framework, under which inspectors focus on the attainment of pupil groups, and in particular those who attract the pupil premium

- the reports for parents that schools have to publish online

Please see below how Bedale C of E Primary school has used pupil premium money and the impact it had on these children.

 NB: Some figures may not tally with the ‘Financial Year’ table due to pupil mobility during the year.  Also, please note that the data shown for Key Stage 1 pupils does not use the same starting point as the nationally recognised APS scale.  Therefore, please contact the school if you require further clarification.

Pupil premium money is funding which targets funds to the benefit of pupils from low income families (those children who are eligible for free school meals).  For this year pupils who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years are also included in the allocation (Ever-6 measure).

 

Pupils who are look after (in care/fostered) for more than 6 months and children from service families are also included.

 

In the 2017-18 financial year,  Bedale Primary School received Pupil Premium Funding of £78,880 as follows:

Per Child 2016/17 (April Financial Year) 2017/18 (April Financial Year)

Barriers and issues to be addressed in school using Pupil Premium funding  (2017-18)

In order to allocate money in the most suitable way, the school looked at the specific needs of the children receiving PP and set objectives to match - these are addressed in our pupil premium spending evaluations.

 

Attendance of a small group of FSM pupils in years 4, 5 and 6 is less than 90%.

Their attendance has had a detrimental effect on their academic progress.

In addition, there are two further pupils whose attendance is 90% and being closely monitored.

The school have identified individuals with specific needs who require support so they can access the curriculum.

Some pupils joining the school after EYFS have had specific gaps in their learning identified by school.

There are a number of children who have limited opportunities to experience the true love of books and reading; therefore inhibiting some learning.

 

As the result of our effective use of Pupil Premium money, we have been able to support our pupils to achieve well in EYFS, Y1 phonics screening and KS1 and KS2 assessments.
