|What are our key strategies to close the attainment and progress gaps for FSM and Pupil Premium Pupils at Hambleton|
· A rich, exciting and engaging curriculum offer for all.
· Developing Resilience
· Quality Teaching throughout school
Current Standards Throughout School (Whole School)
Due to the continuing success of our previous pupil premium strategy, and its positive impact on the attainment and progress of the children in receipt of this fund, we will continue to utilise Pupil Premium money in the same way as previous years.
Teaching and Learning
Hambleton’s main expenditure will be on our Learning Mentor who is there to provide support and guidance to help our children who are experiencing difficulties in learning due to social, emotional or behavioural problems. Our Learning Mentor helps our children overcome behavioural, social or emotional problems that are affecting their learning. One to one support staff
We will continue to design our new curriculum to reflect the needs and aspirations of our school and the assessment linked to the curriculum to ensure that we are closing the gap for disadvantaged children.
As well as continuing to provide free membership of extra-curricular clubs, we will provide additional clubs to improve and develop language and social skills to equip children with the skills that they need to be successful in life.
PSHCE (Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education)
We believe that learning starts with a child’s state of mind or mental health and in order for children to reach their full potential they need to have academic resilience. Through our engagement with our Learning Mentor and Trinity Counselling Services/Intervention groups, we seek to develop understanding of resilience across the whole school community and to establish systems to build ‘resilience approaches’ that support disadvantaged children over time, through a whole school approach.
Main barriers to educational achievement
We have very few barriers to educational achievement amongst our PP children and non-PP children on the whole. The few challenges we have include;
· Low income
· Poor home learning environment
How we will measure impact
· We will continue to close the gap for educational achievement, compared to non-PP peers. (Resilience questionnaire/analysis and observations).
· We will have resilient children ready to begin the next stage of learning. (School data 2020).
How the money will be spent 2020/2021
Due to the success of our previous pupil premium strategy, and its positive impact on the attainment and progress of the children in receipt of this fund, we will continue to utilise Pupil Premium money in the same way as detailed above.
In addition the money we are due to receive this year is going to be used to support staff and various aspects of the Trinity Hospice counselling and support programme.

Pupil Premium Expenditure 2019/2020
Pupil Premium COVID Summary Statement November 2020
FCAT has a total PP allocation of around £2.8 million which of course is shared around all the schools at about £1000 per PP child with PP percentages ranging from about 10% to 70%. In a normal year the PP spending would be reviewed in terms of its impact on a variety of measures including Educational outcomes (particularly in Year 6 and 11), Attendance figures and exclusion data. This year we have had no nationally comparable educational outcomes. In addition, our schools for a lengthy period of time have not been open to all year groups, so comparisons of attendance and exclusions are difficult to make, between one year and another.
One could argue that the best ‘Outcome’ that all our schools contributed to was to enable our students on FSM to be fed properly, with all our schools involved in a variety of methods of providing food for children, all of which is very much at the heart of the Trust’s mission to provide for the public good.
All our PP statements and materials will have been reviewed, but this year they will not have been fully evaluated for obvious reasons. Each school will produce a new 2020-21 PP statement of action, which in all probability will be mainly based on the 2019-20 version.
Last year the DCEO Secondary completed a detailed summary of PP spending which was shared at Directors. This document indicated what proportion of monies was spent on particular areas, spending on additional staffing being the highest commitment. All our Headteachers are aware of the Educational Endowment Foundation Guide to the Pupil Premium. This highlights that spending should be spent in three areas: –
- First quality teaching
- Targeted academic support
- Wider strategies (To support with behaviour, attendance, welfare and other areas)
We feel reassured that all our PP spending follows our core values. Clearly on return to full reopening in September, Head teachers have utilised some of this money and spent some reserves to provide some additionality for all students, but particularly PP children These are some of the areas where we have looked to support all our children: –
- Additional laptops, much funded through the national scheme
- Food vouchers
- Additional counselling
- Additional support for Remote Learning
- Home tutoring
- Additional attendance support
- More home visits
This is not an exhaustive list. However, to conclude all our Heads and Executive Headteachers have shown a great commitment to PP children throughout this period in the nation’s history
