Newnham Infant and Nursery School Pupil Premium Strategy 2019

Pupil premium is additional funding provided by the government. The school receives this funding if a child is eligible for free school meals, is a looked after child or is a child whose parent is in the Armed Forces. The number of children eligible for this funding changes year on year. Our current information for this year is as follows.

  1. Barriers identified for pupils eligible for Pupil Premium
  • Speaking and listening skills
  • Behaviour and emotional needs
  • Weak oral and written language skills impacting on reading and writing (some due to SEN)
  • Lack of language skills which inhibits children from tackling reasoning problems in mathematics (some due to SEN)

 

 

Barrier to learning

Intended outcome

What we did

Impact

Speaking and listening skills

 

 

 

 

Children will develop good speaking and listening skills.

We used the Language Link assessment tool to identify those children with added needs. Children received speech and language support through our speech and language teacher.

SEN children received further support on a 1:1 basis or within a small group.

 

Cost: £28,000

66.7% of the children made expected progress in reading.

Behaviour and emotional needs

Good behaviour for learning and emotional wellbeing.

Children attended social groups in key stage one and ‘Attention Hillingdon’ was used with small groups of children in Early Years. Teachers were supported with introducing better ‘learning to learn’ behaviour amongst the children. Growth Mindset and thinking schools was developed further across the school

 

Cost: £4,600

Teachers reporting better behaviour in classrooms. Teaching assistant taking social groups reporting an improvement in the children’s wellbeing.

Weak oral and written language skills impacting on reading and writing (some due to SEN)

Children to develop their comprehension skills and demonstrate a wider range of vocabulary in written work. The difference between these pupils and their peers will diminish and more will achieve the expected standard or be working at greater depth.

Children were placed in a targeted intervention group for reading. Additional resources were purchased for this group. Key words shared and explained with children in smaller groups before being introduced to the new learning. Writing intervention groups for the underperforming children who are eligible for pupil premium funding.

 

Cost: £3,300

66.7% of the children made expected progress in reading and writing.

 

Lack of language skills which inhibits children from tackling reasoning problems in mathematics (some due to SEN)

Children will develop the skills of reasoning in mathematics

Teachers were supported through staff development meetings, team teaching and individual consultations about target groups and specific support from subject leaders. Children were taken out for maths booster groups with a focus on reasoning. Reasoning questions integrated within the lesson. All children had the opportunity to access reasoning questions as a challenge thereby removing a ceiling on their learning.

 

Cost: £3,500

50.0% of the children made expected progress in mathematics.

 

Impact of funding 2017-2018

After analysing pupil data, support was planned for to help children to meet and exceed expected standards. A range of different strategies were used to identify the children’s individual barrier to learning. Targeted support was then given to individual children in the form of a speech and language specialist as well as focussed intervention work.

A range of different support programmes were also chosen and invested in, to help the children make progress in specific areas of need. These were in both digital and print form.

The grant was also very beneficial in providing children who are eligible for pupil premium funding with the opportunity to attend some extra-curricular after school activities.

  1. Planned expenditure of the Pupil Premium Grant

Academic Year 2018-2019

  • What we are doing?

Desired Impact

Continue to employ a TA specialising in speech and language support. She will support those who are eligible for pupil premium funding already on her caseload and will provide additional support to other children who are eligible for pupil premium funding to develop their language and vocabulary in other areas of the curriculum especially when a new subject is being introduced.

 

Cost: £28,000

Speech and language skills will progress within expected ranges for individual children. For other children they will have a greater understanding of the learner through the additional vocabulary exposure and therefore make as much progress as other children.

Employ an additional adult to provide pupil premium support. They are used to give interventions to children in targeted areas such as reading and in particular, maths were we have the greatest gap in attainment between pupil premium children and other children.

 

Cost: £11,000

The gap in attainment between children eligible for pupil premium funding and those that are not will narrow and they will make at least expected progress in Maths and Reading.

Purchase ‘Communicate in Print’ software to develop the language and communication skills in children who are eligible for pupil premium funding.

 

Cost: £300

 

Children’s language and communication will show a good level of development in line with age related expectations.

Additional curriculum based resources such as trips paid for.

 

Cost: £500

Children attend trips and additional resources support their curriculum understanding.

Extra-curricular clubs paid for.

 

Cost: £400

Children attend club and develop a new skill.

Pay for their daily milk for snack time.

 

Cost: £100

Nutritional benefit.
