Riddlesden St Mary

Pupil premium report July 2018

The Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. These pupils include those who are entitled to free school meals, those looked after by the local authority and children of armed service personnel. The intended effect of this funding is to accelerate progress and raise achievement. It was first introduced in the academic year 2011-2012. In the year 2012-13, the funding was extended to any children from Year 1 who have been eligible for free school meals.

The pupil premium is allocated to schools via the local authority funding systems and is clearly identifiable. It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent since they are best placed to access what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.

‘Encourage, Enrich and Enable’ are the fundamental principles that ensure high expectations and outcomes of all children at St Mary’s, regardless of their background. The school strongly promotes a collaborative approach to both teaching and learning, firmly believing every child has something special to offer. This is reflected in the mixed ability/age ways in which we work. The pupil premium funding directly supports this approach, ensuring all children maximise their learning potential through a variety of opportunities.

All schools are required to report on the amount of funding received, how this is being used and the impact of any work done.

  • In the 2015-2016 academic year, Riddlesden St Mary’s CE Primary received £128,459.00 in pupil premium funding.
  • In the 2016-17 academic year, Riddlesden St Mary’s CE Primary received £149,460.00 in pupil premium funding.
  • In the 2017-18 academic year, Riddlesden St Mary’s CE Primary received £149,460.00 in pupil premium funding.

This was, and continues to be spent as follows:

  • To provide intervention programmes for pupils at risk of underachieving and who are not making expected progress. These programmes are carried out in and out of normal school hours.
  • To provide learning mentor and health mentor support for identified pupils to aid academic, social and emotional development.
  • To provide a family support worker to focus on improving the relationships between home and school
  • To provide enrichment programmes to provide children with new learning experiences which develop the well-being of children who are at risk of not making expected progress.
  • To provide school staff with relevant CPD to enable them to support the pupils who may be at risk of underachievement.

The impact of this work was evident in:

  • The improved progress for identified individuals and groups of pupils as evidenced in attainment and progress tracking.
  • Improved confidence through enrichment opportunities, broadening life experiences for the children.
