Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium 2016-17

For 2016-17 the Pupil Premium funding is £1320 for primary-aged pupils who have been registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years based on January 2016 school census data. For each pupil identified in the spring school census as having left local-authority care due to: adoption, a special guardianship order, a child arrangements order or a residence order, the school receives £1900.

Service Premium

The service premium is extra funding for schools to support children and young people with parents in the armed forces. In the financial year 2016 to 2017, schools will receive £300 for each eligible pupil. Pupils attract the premium if they meet the following criteria:

·         one of their parents is serving in the regular armed forces

·         they have been registered as a ‘service child’ in the school census at any point since 2011

·         one of their parents died while serving in the armed forces and the pupil receives a pension under the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme (AFCS) or the War Pensions Scheme (WPS)

 

Objectives for Pupil Premium at Signhills Academy

·         the funding will be used to close the gap between the achievement of these pupils and their peers

·         to further develop quality first teaching

·         to  provide targeted intervention and provision to meet the holistic needs of the children

·         to engage and support their families in order to overcome barriers which may impact educational achievement.

At Signhills Academy we currently have 57 children in receipt of the Pupil Premium funding and our allocation is £81 780. Throughout the year, all staff monitor pupil attainment and the funding will be used in the following ways:

·         to continue  targeted intervention programmes (small group and 1:1) for disadvantaged groups to accelerate progress in reading, writing and maths.

·         for staff training and development

·         to ensure quality of access to all aspects of school life

·         for pastoral support – to continue the role of Learning Mentors to engage with families, increase pupils’ self-esteem, attendance, attitudes to learning, sense of well-being and enjoyment in school.

At Signhills Academy we assess all pupils’ attainment and progress throughout the school year. The focus of these assessments is on pupils’ progress towards meeting their end of year expectations.  We hold termly pupil progress review meetings and as a result of these meetings, additional support or targeted interventions are implemented or adapted to meet the needs of individual Pupil Premium children.

The percentage of disadvantaged children who left the academy ‘secondary ready’ (expected or above in reading, writing and maths) was in line with ‘all pupils’ nationally and higher than similar pupils nationally.
