The three headings below demonstrate how we are using the Pupil Premium to improve classroom pedagogy, provide targeted support and implement whole school strategies.

i. Quality of Teaching for All

Desired outcome

Chosen action / approach

What is the evidence and rationale for this choice?

How will you ensure it is implemented well?

Staff lead

When will you review implementation?

Teachers and TAs receive effective, targeted guidance and CPD.

 

Staff training on high quality feedback, mobility and questioning.

 

Whole-school consistency in pedagogy to better support all children (especially disadvantaged children).

Quality First teaching and targeted teaching in core subjects is effective in ensuring consistent / rapid progress.

 

Some pupils need targeted support to diminish differences.

 

Evidence sources (EEF Toolkit) suggest high quality feedback is an effective way to improve attainment.

 

Internal evaluations show that those teachers who are mobile and have deep knowledge of their disadvantaged children’s next steps facilitate greater progress.

Quality CPD (based on research) used and acted upon.

 

CPD to be available to staff at all levels.

 

Robust tracking feeding through to Pupil Progress Meetings with clear targets ensuring greater accountability.

 

Evaluation of feedback strategies through monitoring books, observing lessons and through pupil consultation.

Termly

Pupils take ownership of their learning and are able to recognise their progress and use this as a springboard to independence.

Through our assertive mentoring program, pupils will be actively involved in the decision making about learning tasks and will be able to articulate their progress with teachers and leaders.

 

Tracking of pupil progress leads to targeted teaching and individualised initiatives for those pupils not making desired progress.

Meta-cognition and self-regulation approaches have consistently high levels of impact, with pupils making an average of eight months’ additional progress.

 

The evidence indicates that teaching these strategies can be particularly effective for low achieving

Higher attainment through consistent progress is achieved by effective assessment and targeted teaching.

Quality CPD focussed on Meta cognition and self-regulation

Robust tracking feeding through to Pupil Progress Meetings.

 

Pupil progress and performance management are linked skilfully to ensure that next steps and support is centred around individual children, especially those from disadvantaged groups.

ii. Targeted Support

Desired outcome

Chosen action / approach

What is the evidence and rationale for this choice?

How will you ensure it is implemented well?

Staff lead

When will you review implementation?

Improved language skills including vocabulary to learn (whole curriculum).

 

Increased number of pupils reaching ‘greater depth’ across the curriculum.

 

Diminish the difference between PP and Non children reaching the expected standard at the end of KS2.

Intervention groups

 

Toe by Toe

 

Phonics Boosters

 

Plus 1 and Power of 2 Maths

 

Inter School enrichment sessions in Maths, Literacy and Science for higher attaining PP children.

 

Brain Academy catch-up every morning.

In-year data shows that we need to increase the number of most-able PP pupils reaching the higher standard and continue to close gaps between low attaining PP and non-disadvantaged children.

 

Intervention and small group tuition will make an impact if it is additional to and explicitly linked with normal lessons.

 

Quality First teaching and targeted teaching on core subjects is effective in ensuring consistent / rapid progress.

Quality CPD used.

Robust tracking feeding through to Pupil Progress Meetings.

 

Monitoring of links to class teaching

 

Through scrutiny of books we will be able to evidence Brain Academy intervention on unmet objectives.
