Great Bridge Primary School – Pupil Premium Report

Updated July 2019

The Government provide additional funding to schools in order to improve the educational attainment of under-performing groups. This is named the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG).

 

All schools are provided with a funding figure based on the number of pupils in reception to Year 6 who are currently or have ever been entitled* to Free School Meals, children who are in care (known as Children – Looked After) or Armed Services children.

*up to 6 years after the FSM ceased

 

PPG money must be used by schools to narrow the gap between disadvantaged pupils and non-disadvantaged children.

 

At Great Bridge, we know that there is a very fine line between the home of some PPG children and some non PPG children. We believe strongly in protecting children’s esteem and at no point are PPG children separated explicitly for interventions or all placed in the same teaching group. Please see the PPG Policy for the Governing Body principles for PPG spending.

Great Bridge Funding

 

For children who receive (or have received FSM in the last 6 years), the PP fund provides school with an additional £1320 per child.

 

For children who have been "looked after" for at least 6 months, the PP fund provides school with PP funding of £1500 (although £800 is retained by the LA and funding is only received when school is successful in applying for the additional funds. The retained figure doubled to £800 in 2018).

 

For children who have ceased to be looked after by the LA because of adoption, a special guardianship order, a child arrangements order or a residence order, the PP fund provides school with an additional £1500 as well as a further £800 (max) that can fund additional approved projects if agreed with as above.

 

For children who have parents in the armed forces, the PP fund provides school with an additional £300 per child.

 

In 2015, a new PPG was issued by the Government. This is the Early Years PPG. This is set at £300 for each eligible pupil (Nursery age only).

Core Subject Teaching Group sizes

 

Children’s abilities vary tremendously as do the areas of learning that they find tricky. At Great Bridge, we recognise that children need as much opportunity to discuss learning with a teacher as possible – misconceptions are addressed swiftly and smaller teaching groups mean learning content is more tightly focused on individual needs unlike situations where one teacher works with 30 or more children.

 

We provide three teachers in each year group of 60 children from Year 3 to Year 6. Some classes also benefit from specialist HLTAs and highly experienced Learning Support Staff. Nursery classes have a maximum pupil adult ratio of 1:13. Reception classes – 1:15

 

We also recognise the importance of quality first teaching as this gives all children the best first exposure to learning opportunities. We also know that some children will need extra support and a “second run” at some concepts.

 

The “third” teacher role enables all PPG children to work in smaller teaching groups for core subject areas but they also benefit from afternoons of precision teaching to address areas of weakness and misunderstanding. These “Teacher Intervention Groups” (TIGs) take place most afternoons, reducing the gap between insecure PPG children and more confident learners. In the reception class, an additional half day of teaching is provided for "precision teaching".

 

Third teacher – core teaching and TIGS – Academic year 2016-2017    £129,740

Third teacher - core teaching and TIGS - Academic Year 2017-2018    £128,792

Third teacher - core teaching and TIGS - Academic Year 2018-2019    £155,639           

Salaries are calculated according to teaching time x proportion of PP children within the year group + TIG time.

 

Interventions

 

We believe that carefully targeted interventions can have a positive impact on group and individual progress.

 

Interventions are managed by the SENco and DHT in discussion with each teacher where individual needs are discussed and matched to the most effective programs. Some of these interventions are run by the third teacher or HLTA, others by our highly experienced Learning Support Staff.

 

Interventions are completed over a series of weeks and reviewed at the end of each term in order to assess the progress made, the effectiveness of the program and the subsequent needs of each learner.

 

The full program of interventions and the associated costs are presented to the Governing Body on an annual meeting together with an overall measure of pupil progress that details the progress of PPG and non PPG children.

 

Interventions include:

Pre-Teach – key concept first look prior to in class teaching

Basic skills – number and letter formation

Wellcomm language development

English language development

Speech and Language focus

1:1 reading

Talk boost

Racing to English

Snappy phonics

Improving Attendance and behaviour

 

We believe that children need to be in school to learn.

 

Teaching and intervention programmes, no matter how innovative and focused will have no impact on an absent child. Part of our PPG provides both first day challenging for absences and Parent Support Advisor time for supporting parents in times of difficulty – the PSA helps parents recognise the importance of consistent school attendance whilst aiding in transportation when necessary. This also includes transportation when a parent is in hospital etc.

 

PPG also contributes towards an attendance award at the end of the academic year.

Although a difference exists between PPG and non PPG children’s attainment at the end of the Reception year, 

this is in line with the Local Authority and National trends. Additionally, despite very low baselining on intake, GLD was above the LA average.

Sports Funding


The Government have given our school £9000 per year until 2017 and increased this to £19,800 in September 2017. The aim of this funding is to raise the profile of sport, improve the provision of PE and sport in school and to encourage children to lead healthy and active lifestyles.

Out school is using the money in the following ways:

·         Hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside teachers teaching PE focusing on Dance and Gymnastics

·         Provide new and additional sports’ clubs

·         Purchasing a wider range of sport equipment to enhance the variety of sports provided

·         Enhancing playground activity signage and playground markings to inspire more active break and lunchtimes

 

 

An audit of professional expertise was completed in order to identify potential sports’ clubs that teachers could run in addition to the weekly clubs that take place throughout the year, led by our sports’ coaches.

Since this time, we have run numerous PE and fitness clubs throughout the year.

These have included playground games and team building sporting activities, football basics, keep fit, zumba, cross-country running and rounders.

 

Impact So Far 2015 to current academic year:

An increase in the number of FSM/CLA children attending after school clubs:

Summer 2015 – 176 children attended at least 1 after school club: 49 of these, 23% were FSM/CLA

Summer 2016 – 195 children attended after school clubs: 72 of these, 37% were FSM/CLA

Summer 2017 – 184 children attended after school clubs: 64 of these, 34.8% were PPG/CLA

Summer 2018 - 236 children attended after school clubs: ​68 of these, 29%, were PPG/CLA

Analysis: based on the fact that all children attend PE lessons in school time therefore club attendance shows additionality.


Children attending Pe lessons AND after school clubs had higher average gains in cardio, coordination and flexibility

Children not attending clubs made better gains in muscle endurance via PE teaching alone.

Children attending clubs had higher average scores in all 4 areas.

Some issues remain around testing inconsistencies


Previous Analysis 2017-2018:

Attending after school physical education clubs has made a very positive impact on the children’s fitness. 

Testing in 2017-2018 showed changes were needed in the teaching of some elements of PE. Training was provided to all teachers.


Testing in 2018-2019 added the area of flexibility.


The children have not only improved their fitness levels in these areas but have also practised their team building, resilience and sportsmanship skills with many children eagerly participating in clubs for the whole academic year.
