  1. 5.Planned expenditure
  • Academic year
2016/17
The three headings below enable schools to demonstrate how they are using the Pupil Premium to improve classroom pedagogy, provide targeted support and support whole school strategies
  1. i.Quality of teaching for all
Desired outcome Chosen action / approach What is the evidence and rationale for this choice? How will you ensure it is implemented well? Staff lead When will you review implementation?

Gaps between PP and non-PP children will close in terms of ch-n reaching ARE and progress (see section 4.A,B & C)

-CTs will focus on and be accountable for PP progress and attainment

-SLT & CTs will have a good picture of standards of PP

-all staff will be aware of PP children, the expectation and the closing gaps focus

-PP ch-n targeted for ARE in teacher appraisal and progress meetings

-Regular PP work scrutiny by SLT

-Regular tracking and data analysis for PP by CTs and SLT

-Raise profile and expectation of PP children across the school

All staff need to know who PP children are, what their level of attainment and progress is and where they need to get to. Teachers need regular reminders and direction of focus on this through staff meetings, data analysis, work scrutiny feedback, progress meetings, learning walks, appraisal targets. SLT need the data picture and early warning. SLT need to have high expectations of teachers re: PP ch-n

Frequent communication with staff re: data picture (executive summary and gap analysis), renewed focus

Regular input and review of Target Tracker statements by CTs

Termly data analysis by senior and middle leaders

Rolling programme of work scrutiny with feedback to teachers

Focus of learning walks

DHT

Maths & English coordinators

Data reviewed formally end of each term

Work scrutiny ongoing on rolling programme and reviewed at the time

  1. ii.Targeted support
Desired outcome Chosen action / approach What is the evidence and rationale for this choice? How will you ensure it is implemented well? Staff lead When will you review implementation?

Gaps between PP and non-PP children will close in terms of ch-n reaching ARE and progress (see section 4.A,B & C)

-PP ch-n have access to quality first wave teaching

-where appropriate PP ch-n are supported in accessing quality first wave teaching by TAs

-ch-n benefit from additional input

-Quality first wave teaching

-class TAs provide quality focused support to support access to quality first wave teaching

-assembly time interventions led by teachers and TAs

-x1 intervention TA (AR) running phonics and word level comprehension

Last academic year there was a significant shift away from interventions taking place outside the classroom. It was concluded that these interventions were low value and depriving the child of quality first wave teaching back in the classroom.

They were not VfM. Therefore there is a move to PP ch-n being targeted in class by the CT and TA in order to access quality input and activities.

Learning Walks

Drop in focus on TA support

TAs have more involvement in data analysis i.e they have a picture of PPs attainment and progress and gap analysis

TAs also appreciate the focus and high expectations surrounding PP ch-n

DHT

CT’s leadership of their TA

Termly learning walks

Rolling programme of drop-in (alongside work scrutiny) of TAs practice supporting PP

Half termly TA staff meeting agenda item of studying data

Impact of assembly time interventions will be evident in termly data analysis and CTs inform SENCO of their assembly interventions termly

Total budgeted cost £91180


  1. iii.Other approaches
Desired outcome Chosen action / approach What is the evidence and rationale for this choice? How will you ensure it is implemented well? Staff lead When will you review implementation?

Every PP child benefits from the extended curriculum through club and trip participation

PP ch-n’s emotional well-being is supported which in turn supports their progress and attainment

The gap between PP progress and attendance will close (see section 4.D)

-Funding of 66% of the cost of residential. 100% of day trips (move to 66% to be investigated)

-x1 paid club membership paid for by PP funding

-termly analysis of numbers of PP ch-n in clubs

ELSA interventions

Termly analysis of attendance data, termly meetings with EWO and EWO intervention where necessary. Attendance reward system

Home School Link Worker

PP ch-n at Cranmere need support to access trips. These provide many experiences and enrichment opportunities that they would not otherwise receive. The same is true of club participation. Despite offering funding for paid clubs PP uptake has been slow and noticeably less than non-PP ch-n.

There is a significant overlap between PP and vulnerable ch-n. Our trained ELSA TA runs pm interventions in 1:1 and groups 5 afternoons per week

Whilst overall Cranmere attendance is extremely healthy the data dashboard points to this as a weakness in PP and SEN ch-n. This group has been analysed to identify the children and target them re: improved attendance

Families can also be supported in re: emotional wellbeing, accessing school, parenting, support at home

Regular promotion of cost supplementation to PP parents

Termly meetings with PP ch-n to promote club membership and analyse how many of them have joined

Awareness of needs by CTs and referral where necessary.

Evaluation of ch-n’s emotional progress by ELSA and SENCO

Half termly monitoring of PP ch-n’s attendance. Panel meetings and referrals as required with EWO

Staff aware and refer

  1. 6.Review of expenditure
Previous Academic Year 2015/16
  1. i.Quality of teaching for all
Desired outcome Chosen action / approach Estimated impact: Did you meet the success criteria? Include impact on pupils not eligible for PP, if appropriate.

Lessons learned

(and whether you will continue with this approach)

Cost
Pupil Premium children’s progress and attainment will meet or exceed Pupil Premium national averages

Booster – small group tuition after school with a teacher

1:1 tuition – with a teacher after school

Pupil Premium meeting the expected standard in Yr 6 SATs is actually ahead of the national picture for all pupils in reading and maths. Pupil Premium average scaled scores were above 100 in reading, maths and GPS. PP had a positive VA in reading. Whilst yielding some good areas of data for PP ch-n in Yr 6 SATs this was a fire fighting approach intervening in Yr 6. There were gaps in internal data across the rest of the school which were not being identified or action taken to rectify. The measure of success was mainly progress and attainment figures compared to PP nationally rather than the gap compared to non-PP children £2100


  1. ii.Targeted support

Multiple out of class Interventions e.g. Lexia, 1st class at number, FFT, talk partners

Maths teacher led intervention x3 mornings per week

Software licences for Lexia

These interventions had no impact as evidenced by the PP gap that had opened up. This approach was very intervention heavy. PP Ch-n were withdrawn from class for large parts of their timetable. They were taking part in low quality, low impact interventions with the least qualified members of staff. Ch-n were missing quality first wave teaching input and activities. These interventions were stopped in in the summer term 2016 with a shift of emphasis to PP being in class as outlined above. £52000


  1. iii.Other approaches
Desired outcome Chosen action / approach Estimated impact: Did you meet the success criteria? Include impact on pupils not eligible for PP, if appropriate.

Lessons learned

(and whether you will continue with this approach)

Cost

PP ch-n benefit from the extended curriculum through club and trip participation

PP ch-n’s emotional well-being is supported which in turn supports their progress and attainment

School trips paid for at 100% and 66% in the case of residential

Places in paid clubs funded 100% and unlimited number of clubs

Valley trust counselling

HSLW

All PP ch-n experienced trip opportunities that they would not otherwise get especially in the case of outdoor adventure residentials

In most cases PP uptake of clubs was slow, although a few did join multiple paid clubs

Low impact and unreliable service, not VfM

HSLW is a valuable asset and a great help with hard to reach parents and promoting parenting skills in the disadvantaged community

Reduced funding to x1 club per PP pupil because cost is too high for the school. More direct approach meeting with ch-n to unpick reasons for low uptake and promoting joining clubs adopted summer 2016. Regular promoting and checking they have joined up going forwards

Valley trust was stopped Summer 2016
