Pupil Premium

Chellaston Junior School Pupil Premium Report (November 2016)

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 2015-March 2016, the school received £126,000.

For the financial year April 2016-March 2017, the school will receive £123,000 (approximately)

The percentage of our pupils known to have been eligible for free school meals, at any time during the last 6 years, is currently 19% (The national average percentage is 26.7% for Primary Schools.)

The story at CJS during the last 3 years: (Please see the letter of commendation from David Laws)

  • Over the last 3 years, attainment and progress for CJS Pupil Premium pupils has improved significantly.
  • Attainment for CJS Pupil Premium Pupils by the end of Year 6 improved from 53% in 2013 (Level 4 Reading, Writing and Maths combined) to 83% in 2015; and 5% in 2013 (Level 5 in Reading, Writing and Maths combined) to 25% in 2015
  • The difference between CJS Pupil Premium pupils and the National Non-Pupil Premium from 2013 to 2015 reduced from 28% at Level 4 combined to 2%; and 21% at Level 5 combined to 4%.
  • The percentage of CJS Pupil Premium pupils making expected progress in 2013 was well below that for Non-Pupil Premium children Nationally, but was in line with this group in 2015.

The main focus areas for Pupil Premium in 2015-2016 were:

  • To ensure high quality teaching and intervention to Raise Attainment and Accelerating Progress for PP
  • To raise engagement of Pupil Premium Pupils in School Activities
  • To focus the Care, Guidance and Support to help overcome further barriers to learning

What worked well in 2015-2016:

  • The progress of Pupil Premium children across the school from Y3-6 in Reading, Writing and Maths was judged to be good and was greater than that for Non-Pupil Premium children.
  • The progress of Pupil Premium children, when taken from the Year 3 Baseline, was good.
  • 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 2016-2017:

  • 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.
  • Raise the engagement of Pupil Premium children though online reading and maths
  • Further raise the engagement of Pupil Premium children in breakfast clubs and extra-curricular activities.
  • Raise attendance of Pupil Premium children to 96.5% and within 1% Non-Pupil Premium at CJS, which is well above the National.
  • Ensure all Pupil Premium 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.
  • Further develop the behaviour management of Pupil Premium children with challenging behaviour.
  • Develop self-esteem and raise the aspirations of all Pupil Premium children.

2016 Summary

The assessment data for 2016 is very different from previous years. There are no more levels to compare performance. Instead, the measure is focused on those pupils who have achieved the “Expected” (those who have a scaled score of 100 or more) and those pupils who have achieved “Above” (those who have a scaled score of 110 or more). As a school, we are aware of the gaps in Reading and Maths and have a clear action plan to ensure that the current PP pupils at CJS will achieve results much closer to the National and Non PP children Nationally.

Progress Y3-Y6 (2015-2016)

The measure of good progress at CJS is 3 points per year, or 12 points from the start of Y3 to the end of Y6. The following progress is measured from Y3 Baseline to the end of Year 6, according to CJS Teacher Assessment:

The attainment and progress of PP children is positive across the school overall.  It is clear that PP children are making better than expected progress in most areas across the Year Groups Y3-Y6. The above data reflects the hard work of pupils, parents and staff and demonstrates the positive impact of the extra funding for PP pupils at CJS. However, we are aware that the KS2 Results for 2016 reflect a wider gap between Pupil Premium children and the rest of the cohort at CJS.

All staff at CJS are committed to providing the right challenge and support to help all pupils, including PP, achieve the best possible progress and attainment.
