Pupil Premium Evaluation 2019 (Infant School)

Context of School

St. Joseph’s Catholic Infants School is a two form entry school in Southwark. We are currently working in a hard Federation with St. Joseph’s Catholic Junior School as part of St. Joseph’s Camberwell Catholic Schools’ Federation.

We have high aspirations and ambitions for our children and we believe that no child should be left behind. We strongly believe that it is not about where you come from but your passion and thirst for knowledge, and your dedication and commitment to learning that make the difference between success and failure, and we are determined to ensure that our children are given every chance to realise their full potential.

At St. Joseph’s we have high percentages of SEN and EAL pupils. However we see our diverse community as a strength and we are committed to ensuring that the challenges we face are mitigated so that all pupils can reach their full potential. It is essential that we identify individual barriers to learning in order to provide personalised targeted support to ensure our children can flourish.

Overall, the number of children who are entitled to this funding has a downward trend over the past three years. However, across the school this PPG still represents a sizable funding stream which we are committed to ensuring is spent to maximum effect.

Proposed spending of PPG

Objectives in spending PPG:

Our key objective in using the Pupil Premium Grant is to close the gap between pupil groups. As a school we aim to ensure that children make at least good progress throughout each school year.

Through targeted interventions, we are working to eliminate barriers to learning and progress. Many of our children start school with low attainment on entry and our aim is to ensure that they make accelerated progress in order to reach age related expectations + as they move through the school. Our overall aim is that the children entitled to this funding make the necessary progress to achieve at least ARE expectations and taking into account their starting points to achieve either exceeding/greater depth for those children

Summary of proposed spending:

Develop children’s skills and scaffold the learning of those who need extra support through group work, to ensure no child is left out of any activity or school trip or after school club and enhance home school learning through parent workshops. To provide new school uniform annually for each child entitled to this funding stream.

Outcomes to date:

Given the low baseline data for the Reception children who are entitled to Pupil Premium Funding in Reading, Writing and Number particularly, it is obvious that these children will need to make accelerated progress from the outset. Parent/carer workshops are key to sharing expectations with parents/carers which will establish a firm basis from which to move forward. All children entitled to this funding will have their attainment and progress tracked across the year, adapting teaching strategies and resources to best meet the needs of the individual learners, whose needs are many and varied. In Reception there are 11 (23%) children entitled to this funding stream out of 48 pupils.

Cost

Objective

Outcome

Speech & Language groups

Additional external SALT support

£15,500.00

£3, 800.00

Develop language and communication skills for those children who have been assessed as needing this

As we are only 2/3 of the way through the year we do not have any final data for this area. However, data to this point in the academic year shows that improvements are being made to the SAL development of the children involved.

EAL support groups

£5,000.00

To support the transition of new arrivals and enhance the provision for advanced EAL learners.

This is an ongoing element of life here at St Joseph’s. Many of the children arriving from abroad are not entitled to PPG but their needs are enormous.

Intervention groups for Literacy and Numeracy e.g. Group Reading & First Class at Number

£14,083.00

To provide small group opportunities to maximize progress in key skills of reading, writing and mathematics.

Data shows that these children are all making at least good progress but many of them need to make accelerated progress. Some of these children have additional barriers to their learning which is reflected in the pace of their learning.

School Uniform Support

£1,900.00

To ensure all children entitled to PPG have access to free uniform annually

Parents are delighted to have access to free uniforms and feedback is 100% positive. Parents say this helps enormously especially where there are several children of school age in the family.

Subsidised/Free Educational Visits to Theatres, Galleries, Museums, Farms, Zoos etc

£500.00

To ensure all pupils are able to avail themselves of this enriched curriculum offer

All children attend educational visits and partake in this enrichment of our curriculum offer.

Parent Maths, Writing, Reading and Phonics Workshops

£300.00

To continue to develop positive home school relationships with parents/carers so that we ensure they have the pre requisite skills to support their child’s learning.

We are still having to target certain families with regard to attending these workshop sessions as managing their working hours and attending these sessions can be difficult. We have offered repeat sessions where the take up has been improved. Parents who attend are encouraged and show increased confidence when learning how to support their children with their learning at home. The Y1/Y2 PSC workshops had 87% attendance which is very encouraging.

Subsidised/Free After School Clubs in Drama, Art, Gymnastics, Cookery, Football and Multi Skills Club,

£435.00

To enable all pupils to have access to the full range of after school clubs

Children entitled to PPG are always the first to be chosen for these termly after school clubs ensuring that they all have the opportunity to attend a range of after school clubs across the academic year.

Individual Needs Support: Part time teacher to work as part of Intervention team

£4,042.00

Small group booster with a focus on the under achievers.

SENDCo works with children who have complex additional needs on a 1-1 one to one basis to ensure they achieve to their fullest potential.

Phonics Booster groups for Y1 children and those children in Year 2 who did not meet the national threshold when they were in Year 1.

£300.00

Targeted support in After School Classes for Y1 and Y2 children to secure that they reach the appropriate standard in June 2019. These sessions take place in the Summer term and are facilitated by class teachers, teaching assistants and Head of School.

Teachers, TAs and Head of School take after school booster groups to ensure these children have the best possible outcomes at the PSC or when retaking it in Y2.
