Pupil Premium

Oakhill Pupil Premium Statement and Action Plan

Background

What is Pupil Premium Funding?

In 2011-12 the Government launched its Pupil Premium funding. Pupil Premium is funding allocated by the government that the school receives in addition to its delegated budget for each student who is either in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM) or who has been in receipt of them in the past 6 years, are from a forces family or have been adopted from care.  Nationally, the statistics show that students who are in receipt of FSM do less well than their peers in external exams. In making provision for disadvantaged learners, we recognise that not all children who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged and that not all those who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. The school allocates Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils we have legitimately identified as being in need of intervention and support.

 

At Oakhill we have the highest expectations for all our children, aiming for each child to reach their full potential, both academically and socially. In order to do this we engage in a range of strategies to issue challenge at an appropriate level, and provide support to overcome barriers to learning. We provide a rich and varied curriculum, which makes an exceptional contribution to pupils’ outcomes so that children are engaged and achieve exceptionally well.

3.Barriers to future attainment (for pupils eligible for PP including high ability)

 In-school barriers

  1.  

Parental engagement in children’s learning and achievement.

  1.  

Writing skills for children eligible for PP are lower than for other pupils.  This slows writing progress in subsequent years.

  1.  

Conversion of higher ability PP children from EY to KS1, and impacts KS2.

  1.  

Percentage of children who are pupil premium with SEN challenges

 External barriers (issues which also require action outside school, such as low attendance rates)

E.

Attendance rates for pupils eligible for PP are 94.8 %, which is below our expected 97%.

 

  1. Outcomes

 

Desired outcomes and how they will be measured

Success criteria

  1.  

Increase in parental engagement in year group expectations in reading, writing and maths, but with a creative flair to engage parents in supporting learning.

Parental engagement and attendance at half termly workshops increases, having a positive impact upon child progress and attainment.

  1.  

Increase in percentage of pupil premium children working at expected level in each cohort.

Children’s engagement and enjoyment of writing will increase, thus impacting upon writing attainment in each key stage.

  1.  

Higher % of children achieving higher level convert in KS1 to KS2.

Children gaining exceeding in EY will continue to achieve at this level at the end of KS1 and KS2.

  1.  

Improved outcomes for PP children with SEN status.

PP Children with Sen challenges will make good progress, with an increased % of children achieving expected standard of learning.

  1.  

Increased attendance % for all PP children.

Improved attendance figures for this group of pupils will improve their engagement and capacity to learn.
