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.
