Pupil Premium Strategy 2017 – 2018

Number of Pupils eligible 19
Total PP received £25944

Identified barriers to educational achievement

Ringsfield Church of England Primary School has identified the following as barriers for some of the pupils currently in receipt of Pupil Premium:

  • Access to language – from books as well as speaking and listening opportunities
  • Access to extra-curriculum activities – educational experiences such as trips, music lessons and participation in physical activities
  • Attendance
  • Parental engagement with school – especially regarding attendance at information and workshop evenings and completion of homework
  • The number of pupils who are in receipt of Pupil premium that are also on the SEN register for cognition and learning
  • Behaviour – pupils with specific social and emotional needs which affect their learning.
  • Learning behaviours – especially risk taking, confidence and resilience

Rationale for expenditure

As identified in the 2015-16 impact statement there are only a few PP in each age group and so it is difficult to look for trends. However there is a lack of confidence with maths and a lack of inspiration with writing in general for PP children. A lot of expenditure has been allocated to extra support in the classroom through TA intervention; this support for the children will enable them to access more of the curriculum. Money has also been allocated for projects to focus on giving the PP children extra opportunities to develop their confidence and resilience such as the nurture group and outdoor learning activities. Many of the PP pupils’ parents are unable to afford to pay for school trips, residentials and music tuition. In order to support their learning in all areas of the curriculum and to build confidence, the school has allocated funding to pay for these additional expenses throughout the academic year.

If your child does not have Free School Meals, but may be eligible because of your family's income level, please contact the office (in confidence) to register them. Even if you do not wish them to have the meals, this would mean the school could still claim Pupil Premium funding that may be used to help your child.
