Pupil Premium Grant Spending

Allocation

Pupil premium funding is used to promote social skills, encourage student engagement, independent learning and positive behaviour in order to improve attendance, increase rates of progress and ultimately improve levels of attainment, as per the Department for Education guidelines.

Impact

All initiatives that have been either fully or partially funded by the pupil premium are evaluated. The staff and governors at Pennine View School recognise that it is extremely difficult to isolate a single initiative and demonstrate that this has had a specific impact on a child. The use of pupil premium funding is reported to the full governing body of the school and appears on the agenda for each meeting of the full governing body. We track the progress of pupils who are entitled to Pupil Premium and there are no noticeable differences between these pupils and the rest of the school community.

Impact is measured in the following ways:

  • Tracking progression of levels within subject areas.
  • Tracking level of attendance for the pupils.
  • Undertaking surveys by the children and staff before and after an activity or intervention to see if it’s had an impact on the child’s confidence, self-esteem, moods etc.
  • Checking number of behavioural incidents for the children.

Catch-Up Premium Grant Spending

About the Premium

The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gives schools additional funding to support year 7 pupils who did not achieve at least level 4 in reading or maths at the end of key stage 2 (KS2).  All state-funded schools with year 7 pupils receive this funding.

Allocation and Usage

In 2014/15, Pennine View received £8,500 Catch-Up Premium funding.  The funding was used to:

– to allow our staff to be trained to deliver interventions as part of our on-going intervention programme.  Turnabout training was of particular importance as it has provided several staff with training on improving the auditory and visual memory skills of students;

– to purchase resources and software to enable pupils to access reading interventions across school.  Lexia software enabled pupils to access reading intervention across school, and is also accessible from home for pupils to do extra;

– to purchase additional books and resources for pupils use.

In 2015/16, Pennine View received £8,500 Catch-Up Premium funding:

No. of pupils on roll:  118

No of pupils eligible for Catch-up Premium:  17

Catch-Up Funding:  £8,500

The funding has been used to purchase software and books to improve the literacy of our pupils, such as:

– we have continued to use Lexia software, which has enabled pupils to access reading interventions across school, and at home;

– Cambridge Handwriting has been used to support pupils handwriting as whole class and small interventions;

– Read Write Inc has been used to deliver phonics interventions;

– Project X reading resources have been purchased.  This was a resource request from several year 7 pupils that enjoyed reading these books.

We continue to monitor our pupils progress through provision mapping.

Funding will continue into 2016/17 and information will be posted here once we have received confirmation of the funding allowance.
