Pupil premium 2017-2018

Maximising the impact of the Pupil Premium involves the use of effective assessment and progress tracking procedures. Regular, systematic whole-school tracking of pupils’ progress is fundamental in raising standards and a determination that no pupil should be ‘left behind’.

Closing attainment gaps involves:

Five approaches to the Pupil Premium:

1. Early Intervention

2. Improving the impact of TA’s

  • Quality first teaching
  • Regularity of teaching - timetabling
  • Earliest possible identification
  • Involvement of parents/carers
  • Additional targeted small group/individual support
  • Evaluation of impact on progress – quality assurance
  • Ensure any intervention is effectively delivered
  • Training
  • Regular dialogue between class teacher and TA
  • Use of assessments and progress checking
  • Evaluate impact of existing TA provision
  • Use of Pupil Premium funding to deliver specific interventions
  • Joint training for TAs and teachers
  • Training
  • Track the impact

 

3. Building independence and self-efficacy

4. Developing speaking and listening skills

  • Classroom observations to review whether teaching consistently promotes these
  • Additional staff training in areas such as AfL, Building Learning Power, OTP
  • Teacher mentoring
  • PSHE/Citizenship teaching explicitly helping pupils develop self-efficacy (SEAL)
  • Peer tutoring
  • Feedback and marking
  • Coaching
