PE and Sports Premium Grant Expenditure:

Financial Year 2018/2019

 

Number of pupils and PE and Sports Premium Grant (SPG) received
Total number of pupils on role 415
Total amount of SSG received £19,350
Nature of support from September 2018
We support improvement in sport participation through subscribing to competition in our locality through the Blackwater Sports Partnership and Football in the Community.

Some of the grant is used to fund a minibus so that teams can regularly attend competitions and classes can access external facilities. Our isolated location and a large proportion of our parent body being commuters, create a barrier which could interfere with teaching and learning if the funding did not support this.

We support families in financial difficulty to access sport within and beyond the school and subsidise enrichment ventures where elite athletes can be inspired to greater achievements.

Funding has been allocated to improve play and sports facilities throughout the school and to develop CPD for the staff.

Measuring the impact of SPG spending
The measurement of the impact of the support and interventions shows that we have a high proportion of pupils attending extra curriculum sporting activities; our school teams are regularly successful in winning tournaments and events; A large number pupils are represented at club and county level in their respective sports and we promote the participation of gifted and talented pupils accessing their sport during curriculum time.

 

 

Pupil Premium Grant Expenditure;

Financial Year 2018/2019

 

Number of pupils and pupil premium grant (PPG) received
Total number of pupils on role 415
Total number of eligible pupils for PPG 44
Amount of PPG received per pupil 35 X £1,320 9 X £1,900
Total amount of PPG received £63,300
How the PPG grant was spent in the academic year 2017/18
We ran a number of intervention strategies for individuals and groups that include: 1:1 tuition (additional to other 1:1 tuition), phonics, Early Literacy Support, Further Literacy Support, Maths Challenge, Bubble Time and Emotional First Aid.

We provided 60 hours additional LSA support time for the development of basic skills and to help close the attainment gaps, daily support from an emotional first aider, daily support in phonics and basic skill development and additional targeted release time for our inclusion leader to focus support on closing attainment gaps for individuals and groups.

This grant was used to resource and staff the above interventions.

We used part of the grant to support our access to our early intervention family support.

In addition to this we supported financially the access of class visits/visitors, residential learning, enrichment visits and extra-curricular clubs.

The impact of PPG spending in the academic year 2017/18
We measure the impact of these additional interventions through our school assessment tracking system. Interventions are carefully chosen by the class teacher in consultation through pupil progress meetings with senior leaders and the inclusion manager. If expected progress is not being made by the pupil then the intervention is changed.

At the end of Key Stage 2 2018 of our known eligible children for free school meals, who were at the school prior to year 5, 100% achieved the expected standard in combined maths, reading and writing, 100% in maths, 100% in reading, 100% in writing and 100% in EGPS.

The main barriers to educational achievement faced by pupils eligible for the PPG in the academic year 2018/19
A broad range of social, emotional, and family dynamic issues that impede on the full support, engagement and learning focus that our other children have which leads to successful progress.

An influx of children eligible for pupil premium funding arriving from out of catchment are also displaying poor learning skills from their previous settings.

Nature of support from September 2018 to address these barriers
Part of the grant will be used to provide staff in our inclusion team to offer 1:1 tuition in English and maths, specific individual interventions to remove barriers to learning and emotional First Aid.

Part of the grant will be used to support our access our early intervention family support.

In addition to this we will support financially the access of class visits/visitors, residential learning, enrichment visits and extra-curricular clubs.

How the school will measure the impact and effect of expenditure of the PPG grant in the academic year 2017/18
Eligible pupils will be tracked termly through pupil progress meetings and their interventions and provision mapping will be adapted in accordance with their individual needs
