Using our Pupil Premium Funding Effectively
At Newtown Linford Primary School, our Pupil Premium allocation for 2016/17 is £10400
The Pupil Premium is allocated to all schools and is based upon numbers of pupils who are currently known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM), pupils in care who have been looked after continuously for more than six months, pupils who have been in receipt of free school meals within the past six years, or pupils who have parents in the Armed Forces or pupils who were looked after by an English or Welsh local authority immediately before being adopted, or who left local authority care on a special guardianship order or child arrangements order. Pupil Premium funding is also allocated for pupils who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years.
In 2015/16 we used the Pupil Premium;
To continue to top up funding Teaching Assistant and Learning Support hours support provided to all classes and for intervention groups that run to help support children’s learning.
To fund Free School Milk for all children who are in receipt of free school meals.
To run Physical Literacy Sessions.
Our data analysis shows that children in receipt of this money consistently attained and made progress at the same levels as all children within school.
Our intervention groups also enabled children to make advanced levels of progress and raise their levels of self esteem.
In 2016/17, we will use the Pupil Premium;
To continue to top up funding for Teaching Assistant and Learning Support hours provided to all classes and for intervention groups that run to help support children’s learning.
To fund Free School Milk for all children who are in receipt of Free School Meals.
Irrespective of ability, we recognise the importance of ensuring this funding is specifically used for Pupil Premium eligible children at Newtown Linford Primary School and we continually strive to ensure our Pupil Premium eligible children achieve and progress well.
Our assessment of the quality of this provision is based on continual monitoring by the Headteacher and Senior Teacher and regular progress meetings with all Teachers, Teaching Assistants, Learning Support Assistants and Nursery Nurse.
Due to the small numbers of children who receive this funding within our school, more detail is not provided on this website to ensure individual children can't be identified. Please contact the Headteacher if you require additional information.
'Funding available through the pupil premium is used to help eligible pupils to take a full part in school life, and benefit, where appropriate, from specific resources such as reading books and additional help from adults. The progress made by these and other pupils is monitored closely at regular meetings between the headteacher and teachers to track all pupils’ progress.'
