Overview:

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011, and paid by means of a specific grant based on one school census figures for pupils registered as eligible for free school meals in Reception to Year Eleven. For Looked After Children, the Pupil Premium was calculated using the Children Looked After data returns (SSDA903). A premium has also been introduced for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces. This service premium is designed to address the emotional and social well-being of these pupils.

The Pupil Premium is additional to main school funding and it will be used by this school to address any underlying inequalities between children eligible by ensuring that funding reaches the pupils who need it most.
Objectives for Pupil Premium in this School:

The Pupil Premium will be used to provide additional educational support to improve the progress and to raise the standard of achievement for these pupils.
The funding will be used to narrow and close the gap between the achievement of these pupils and their peers.
As far as its powers allow the school will use the additional funding to address any underlying inequalities between children eligible for Pupil Premium and others.
We will ensure that the additional funding reaches the pupils who need it most and that it makes a significant impact on their education and lives.

School Policy:

The headteacher and governing body have agreed a policy for Pupil Premium to guide the use of funds and to ensure that it represents value for money.
Accountability:

The headteacher and leadership team will regularly and rigorously monitor, evaluate and review the strategies we have put into place for Pupil Premium and report to the governing body on its progress and impact.
Statistics:

In school we have 63% of pupils who are entitled to benefit from the additional funding.
Each entitled pupil receives £600 per annum.
In the current year, 2012-2013 the school has received £40,800 additional funds

Strategy for using the Funding:

The school has looked carefully at the needs of each pupil and we decided to use the following intervention strategies:

Teach Literacy and Numeracy in ability groups from Year Three to Year Six and extend Read, Write, Inc to the whole school.
Employ an additional teacher in the morning so that groups have decreased in size thus enabling pupils entitled to Pupil Premium funding to make improved progress and to raise their standards of achievement.
Additional teaching and learning opportunities for pupils entitled to Pupil Premium funding provided through trained Teaching Assistants and external agencies to help them make improved progress and to raise their standards of achievement.
Acquiring effective materials for pupils entitled to Pupil Premium funding aimed at raising standards, particularly in Reading – extend resources for Read, Write, Inc and Guided Reading .
Increase the hours of one Foundation Stage Teacher so that Nursery pupils are split into morning and afternoon sessions, thus reducing the number of children in the Foundation Stage at any one time.
Establish a Nurture Group, the first in Bury Local Authority, to meet the needs of our most vulnerable children entitled to Pupil Premium funding, to help them make improved progress and to access the Foundation Stage Curriculum – two experienced Teaching Assistants to work with a group of five children all day from April 2012 to July 2012 and each morning from September 2012 to July 2013.
Increase the use of ICT equipment for the Foundation Stage so that effective materials for pupils entitled to Pupil Premium funding will raise standards and enable them to meet the Early Learning Goals.
Providing a Breakfast Club to ensure that children have a nutritious meal at the start of the school day, thus enabling them to improve attendance and punctuality so that this will have a positive impact on their progress and meet their emotional needs.
Fund additional Curriculum opportunties and eduational trips.
Fund Assertive Mentoring for all pupils from Year One to Year Six, enabling pupils to receive feedback temly from a persnal Mentor, so they can focus on their targets to improve to reach or surpass National expectations.
Provide small group work for pupils entitled to Pupil Premium funding with expereinced Teaching Assistants, to improve their social skills and self-esteem through lunchtime Friendship Groups and Games Groups.
Pupil Premium resources may also be used to target pupils entitled to Pupil Premium funding to achieve Level Four and Level Fives at the end of Key Stage Two.
Update of ICT equipment.
Contribution to Christmas parties, discos etc.
