Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Grant for 2016-2017

Our strategy for pupil premium spending is to accurately target provision in order to close attainment gaps and provide wide range of enrichment activities.

What is it?

The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers.

Total amount of grant allocated to Eastcote Primary Academy: £36 960

Number of pupils : 23 eligible pupils – this is 9.8% of school population

Who is eligible for Pupil Premium?

  • Children of Armed Forces Personnel
  • Looked After Children
  • Children adopted from care or who have left care

Children can have free school meals and are eligible for Pupil Premium if they receive any of the following:

  • Income support
  • Income Based Jobseekers Allowance
  • Income Related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)
  • Support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • Child Tax Credit provided you are not entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual income that does not exceed £16,190
  • The guaranteed element of Pension Credit

How is it used?

In making provision for socially disadvantaged children, we recognise that not all children who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged. We also recognise that not all children 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 child or group of children Eastcote Primary Academy has legitimately identified as needing additional support to achieve improved outcomes in learning and/or well-being.

Pupil Premium Funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority groups or individuals. The Senior Management Team will allocate Pupil Premium Funding in order to:

  • Provide individuals or small groups opportunities that will enhance their learning or well being
  • Provide  additional teaching and learning opportunities
  • Provide individuals with resources in order to support learning

All our work through the Pupil Premium will be aimed at accelerating progress moving all children to at least age related expectations. A particular focus will be placed on improving Literacy and Numeracy and narrowing the attainment and progress gap between children entitled to Pupil Premium and their peers.

We have a small number of children each with differing needs, situations and abilities.  Due to the cohort size, generalisations about barriers to learning are not applicable.  Every child’s needs are met on individual basis.

Monitoring the impact of the effectiveness of Pupil Premium grant is done on an individual child basis by senior leaders and teachers.  The effectiveness of how the grant has been spent will be measured through formative and summative assessments, observations, pupil conferencing and end of year outcomes.

 Impact of PPG for 2015/2016 in terms of attainment

  • For attainment, in expected level, PP children are attaining in line with national for writing and where there is a difference between pupil premium and non-pupil premium in maths and reading this only equates to 1 child not making the expected standard.
  • Where children are attaining above the expected standard, in reading and writing PP children perform as well as non-pupil premium. In maths, where there is a gap this again only equates to one child.
