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

Curriculum

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.

Enrichment

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 2019).

How the money will be spent 2018/2019

Due to the success of our previous pupil premium strategy, and its positive impact on the attinment 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. 

The breakdown is as follows;

  • Support staffing (Learning Mentor / TA / Counsellor) £25,500
  • Counselling and Link Service £2,500
  • Child specific / Extra curricular support £4,000

How the PPG money was used

Since 2012, Hambleton Primary Academy has been able to access the ‘Pupil Premium’ grant to further support the education of its students who have claimed Free School Meals (FSM) during the previous six years.

 

Examples of how the ‘Pupil Premium’ enhanced our provision included;

We deployed a member of staff to the post of Learning Mentor to oversee the main outcomes and support for FSM and vulnerable children and she liaised with the relevant staff who worked with these particular children.

We deployed a member of staff to the post of Counsellor to provide emotional support for FSM and vulnerable children.

We provided a member of Support staff in every class who were able to work one to one with children whenever needed.

We provided additional academic support for FSM children who needed to boost their progress.

We were very proud of the achievements of all our pupils, especially our FSM youngsters, for whom the playing field is seldom a level one. Assessment data conformed that we successfully narrowed the gap between our FSM and non-FSM pupils in many of the key performance indicators in 2017/2018.

The impact of how we use this additional funding to support the collective needs of our most vulnerable children can be measured in the outcomes they have achieved.

At Key Stage 1 Pupil Premium children far exceeded the national average for all children nationally. Their attainment was lower than for non-pupil premium children but their progress from baseline exceeded non Pupil Premium children.

At Key Stage 2, all children attained the expected standard in all subjects with 2 children achieving above the expected standard in all subjects. All the children in receipt of the Pupil Premium also exceeded their targets in Reading, Writing and Maths. They also made exceptional progress from Key Stage 1. Pupil Premium children outstripped their non Pupil Premium peers in overall terms.
