Pupil Premium

Chellaston Junior School Pupil Premium Report (November 2018)

What is Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium is funding allocated to schools for the specific purpose of boosting the attainment of pupils from low-income families. Funding is based on children who have registered for a free school meal at any point in the last 6 years, children who have been in care for more than six months and children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces.

Why has it been introduced?

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers, by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most. Whilst schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit, we are required to publish online information about how we have used the Premium.

How much funding do we get?

For the financial year April 2018-March 2019, the school received £140,000 (approximately)

For the financial year April 2017-March 2018, the school received £127,000 (approximately)

The percentage of our pupils known to have been eligible for free school meals, at any time during the last 6 years, is 20% (The national average percentage is 26.7% for Primary Schools.)

Improvements over time:

  • Over the last few years, attainment and progress for CJS Pupil Premium pupils has improved significantly.
  • Attainment for CJS Pupil Premium Pupils by the end of Year 6 has improved from: 53% in 2013 (Level 4 in Reading, Writing and Maths combined) to 76% in 2018 (Expected in Reading, Writing and Maths combined) and from 5% in 2013 (Level 5 in Reading, Writing and Maths) to 7% in 2018 (Greater Depth in Reading, Writing and Maths combined). Attainment for CJS Pupil Premium Pupils is now above the National for all pupils in most areas.
  • In 2013, Pupil Premium at CJS achieved over 20% lower than other pupils Nationally. In 2018, Pupil Premium children achieved 3.3% below other pupils Nationally (at Expected) and 8.3% % below other pupils Nationally (at Greater Depth). The difference has reduced significantly in over the last few years.

The main focus areas for Pupil Premium in 2017-2018 were:

  • To ensure high quality teaching and intervention to Raise Attainment and Accelerating Progress for PP
  • To raise engagement, attendance and support at home of Pupil Premium Pupil
  • To focus the Care, Guidance and Support to help overcome further barriers to learning

What worked well in 2017-2018:

  • The progress of PP children across the school from Y3-6 in Reading, Writing and Maths was good.
  • Intervention Teaching for Pupil Premium children gave the additional care, guidance and support needed for these children to make good progress
  • Attainment of Pupil Premium children was generally higher than all pupils nationally
  • The participation of Pupil Premium children in all school activities was significantly increased due to funding for Educational Visits and PE kit. (See PE Plan and Educational Visits Records)
  • The participation of Pupil Premium children in extra-curricular activities was significantly increased due to funding for Sporting activities. (See Activity Registers)
  • Vulnerable pupils were very well supported by the Learning Mentor, through nurture, behaviour support and multi-agency working. (See Records of Learning Mentor)

What we need to improve in 2018-2019:

  • Continue to raise the attainment of Pupil Premium children across the school and by the end of Year 6, to significantly reduce the difference between CJS Pupil Premium and Non-Pupil premium children Nationally, in terms of attainment and progress, through high quality teaching and intervention.
  • Continue to raise the engagement of PP children though online reading and maths
  • Further raise the engagement of PP children in breakfast clubs and extra-curricular activities.
  • Raise attendance of PP children to 96.5 % (within 1% Non-PP at CJS), which is above National.
  • Ensure all PP children get the support and guidance they need with reading and homework.
  • Improve the engagement of all Pupil Premium parents to further support learning at home.
