For 2017-18 Pupil Premium Evaluation and 2018-19 Pupil Premium Action Plan please see attached reports at the bottom of this page.
BACKGROUND AND CONTEXT:
Introduced in April 2011, the pupil premium is allocated to children who are looked after by the local authority, those who have been eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (also known as Ever 6 FSM) and for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces.
The Pupil Premium is used to provide additional educational support to improve the progress and to raise the standard of achievement for these pupils. It is used to narrow and close the gap between the achievement of these pupils and their peers.
In the 2018 to 2019 financial year, Pupil Premium funding allocation is:
|Disadvantaged pupils||Pupil premium per pupil|
|Pupils in year groups reception to year 6 recorded as Ever 6 free school meals||£1,320|
|Pupils in years 7 to 11 recorded as Ever 6 FSM||£935|
Eligibility for funding has previously been extended to all children who:
- have been looked after for 1 day or more
- were adopted from care on or after 30 December 2005
- left care under:
-a Special Guardianship Order on or after 30 December 2005
-a Residence Order on or after 14 October 1991
"I have come that they may have life and have it to the full"
St Wilfrid's is a place of love and learning, where all are equal in the eyes of God. It is the mission of this school to cherish each individual. We try to follow Jesus' example as a friend and guide. We believe that there are talents and strengths within us all and we strive to let them shine brightly.
The effective use of the Pupil Premium grant involves all aspects of our mission statement at St Wilfrids Catholic Primary School, all pupils, including the most severely disadvantaged and the highly gifted, are regarded as unique individuals and receive both challenge and support designed to meet their needs.
- Expectations are high for all pupil groups and individuals. We expect to see all of our children eligible for Pupil Premium to achieve their full potential.
- Not all pupils who qualify for FSM are socially disadvantaged and not all socially disadvantaged pupils qualify or are registered for FSM. We therefore focus on the needs and levels of progress of all pupils.
- All teaching and learning strategies are designed to meet the needs of individuals and groups. Additional support is integrated into the teaching programme.
- In providing support we will not socially isolate pupils. Therefore, it is likely that all groups receiving additional support will be a mix of FSM and non-FSM pupils.
- We are currently researching the best methods/interventions/programmes to maximize optimum success within this group of children.
- The governing body will approve, understand and be involved in the schools strategy for deploying pupil premium.
- The governing body will hold senior leaders to account for implementing the school’s strategy and for evaluating its impact on the achievement of targeted pupils.
Head Teacher and SMT
- At St Wilfrid’s Catholic Primary School the Head Teacher, Deputy Head & SENCO retain overall responsibility for leading the Pupil Premium strategy.
- The impact of the support provided is judged by the progress made by the children who are entitled to support through the PPG. The impact of the PPG will be monitored termly by SMT.
- The SENCo will monitor and track the progress of this group of children.
- All staff are expected to have an in-depth knowledge of all the pupils they teach and support, especially pupils with disabilities and special needs and those who qualify for additional funding through the Pupil Premium grant.
- Class and subject teachers are responsible for the progress made by all pupils.
