Tadworth Primary School Pupil Premium 2019-2020

Background

The pupil premium is intended to support schools in narrowing the gap in attainment between identified groups of pupils. The Pupil Premium fund can be used to target specific training or for interventions with the aim of accelerating the rate of pupil progress.

It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made.

Main Barriers to Achievement

The barriers to educational achievement that we have identified for children in our school who have triggered pupil premium funding include, but are not limited to:

  • Some disadvantaged pupils have a significant attainment gap compared to pupils who are not identified as disadvantaged
  • Some disadvantaged pupils also have Special Educational Needs and/or disabilities that can severely impact on their ability to access the curriculum and make progress in line with their peers
  • External family circumstances can impact on learning, attendance, behaviour, mental health and pupil welfare of pupils who are identified as disadvantaged

Aims

The pupil premium funding will be aimed at helping to overcome these barriers.  Our overall aims are:

  • To try and close the attainment gap in reading and maths between KS2 pupils who are eligible for the Disadvantaged Pupil fund and those who are not. We aim for the gap in attainment to reduce in each year group as a result of targeted intervention
  • Pupils are engaged and demonstrate successful/accelerated learning skills, especially in targeted areas of the curriculum
  • To address and improve any attendance issues so that it does not fall below 90%
  • To enable children to be regulated and motivated to learn so that they can access the school day

We regularly review our schools' pupil premium strategy. The impact of the pupil premium grant is monitored termly and at the end of the school year, via 1:1 assessment, via provision mapping meetings and through surveys/questionnaires. This is also reviewed by the Pupil Premium Link Governor and discussed termly by members of our Governing Body.

Details about how the funding for 2018-19 was spent, along with the impact, can be found in our ‘2018 19 Pupil Premium, Spending and Impact’ document. 

In 2019-20 the funding will be used to fund a range of strategies including direct support for pupils and parents as well as training for staff. Please click here to see details of how the funding will be spent in 2019-20.
