Pupil Premium Information

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011, and is paid by means of a specific grant.  The pupil Premium is primarily aimed at Reception to Year 11 pupils who are from low income families and are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) or have been registered for FSM in the past 6 years.  The funding also covers children in care aged 4-15yrs. 

The Pupil Premium is additional to main school funding and it will be used by this school to address any underlying inequalities between children eligible by ensuring that funding reaches pupils who need it most. 

The Pupil Premium will be used to provide additional educational support to improve the progress and to raise the standard of achievement for these pupils and narrow and close the gap between the achievement of these pupils and their peers. 

School may also use the Pupil Premium funding to provide appropriate support for the well being of pupils it may deem vulnerable for whatever reason, both socially and emotionally. 

How the Pupil Premium will be managed at Abram Bryn Gates Primary 

  1. Pupil Premium will be clearly identifiable within the budget.
  2. The school will access what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils.
  3. The school will be accountable for how it has used the additional funding to support the achievements of those pupils covered by the Pupil Premium.
  4. Information about how we have used the Pupil Premium will be published on the school website.
  5. We will seek to further develop strategies and interventions which can improve the progress and attainment of these pupils.
  6. We will track the impact of the strategies put into place through the funding to ensure that we can show the value that has been added to the education of the entitled children.
  7. We will monitor, evaluate and review the success of the impact of the Pupil Premium funding.

Spending for 2013/2014

Total allocation for 2013/2014: £68,775

Proposed spending for actions focused on the curriculum as a pro-rata basis of overall spending totals £44,565.87.

This includes:

-          Provision of additional staffing to support the pupil learning and that any gaps in attainment and progress are narrowed.

-          The enrichment of the curriculum such as the music curriculum support programme, the specialist dance programme, the specialist sports skill based programme, the schools swimming programme can be accessed by all groups.

Proposed spending for actions focused on Social, Emotional and Behaviour matters as a pro-rata basis of overall spending is £5200

This includes any access over and above allocated budget/ SEN funding for children falling into this group (this figure was based on last year’s spending).

Proposed spending for actions focused on enrichment beyond the curriculum as a pro-rata basis of overall spending is £1896

This includes ensuring that all Pupil Premium children can access any extra-curricular dinnertime/ after school clubs re: sport, music, homework (this figure was based on last year’s spending).

Proposed spending for actions focused on families and communities as a pro-rata basis and specific spending is £9000

This includes:

-          Curriculum delivery of self-esteem raising support programme

-          Specific targeted family programme (out of school)

Total overall proposed spending of £60,661.87

This leaves a contingency figure of £8,113.13

2013/14 Impact

By the end of the academic year 2013/14 the school had an overall percentage of 46% Pupil Premium group. The school’s rigorous internal data analysis plus comparison with local and national data ensures that every effort is undertaken to narrow the gap in both attainment and progress between Pupil Premium and non Pupil Premium children and this commitment is ongoing.

Pupil Premium helped to ensure that all children accessed a broad and balanced curriculum and this included:-

1. contributions towards the school’s policy of funding all visits/visitors, avoiding any discrimination in children accessing inspiring and stimulating experiences. In 2013/14 these have included;

  • Tudor Workshop
  • BlackpoolZoo
  • Blue Planet Aquarium
  • WildBoarPark
  • Smithills
  • Travelling Science Show
  • Life Education Caravan
  • Leigh Centurions
  • WiganRugby
  • Anderton Centre – residential

2. Contributions to the enrichment of the curriculum with delivery of specialist programmes for all children by outside providers with a high level of expertise. In 2013/14 these have included;-

  • Music curriculum support programme (Wider Opportunities)
  • Major Dance specialist dance/drama programme
  • Major Sports sports skills based programme

3. Pupil Premium has helped ensure that all Pupil Premium children can access any extra curricular dinnertime/after school clubs. In 2013/14 al least one extra curricular provision was accessed by a total of 249 children, 102 of whom were Pupil Premium, giving a percentage average of 41%.

4. Some Pupil Premium spend during 2013/14 has contributed to the sensitive areas of Social, Emotional and Behavioural matters and Families and Community. The school can provide evidence of how this spending has enriched the situation of some children and families who may be deemed vulnerable and in unfortunate circumstances. In some cases specialist outreach provision has been commissioned and organisations used to raise self esteem, reduce vulnerability and provide a caring, nurturing and safe environment for children and families.

5. Rigorous analysis of the performance of Pupil Premium children compared to non Pupil Premium is undertaken on a regular basis. External benchmarking is also accessed for further comparison. This analysis provides evidence of the impact Pupil Premium spending is having and the school can evidence that the gap between performance of Pupil Premium / non Pupil Premium is narrowing in the majority of cases.

For the Year 2012 / 13 the Pupil Premium Allocation was £44,400

The proposed spending of this is as follows: -

  • continuing with the school policy of non charging of its families for all educational visits / visitors in order to avoid any discrimination
  • provision of additional staffing where appropriate to provide further interventions / strategies / programmes in Literacy and Numeracy
  • supplementation throughout the year of specialist extra curricular provision in sport / music to increase access for more pupils
  • to provide extra resources in Literacy and Numeracy in order to enhance the curriculum for all. 

Impact so far

By the end of the academic year 2012/2013, the school had an overall percentage of 47% Pupil Premium group. Rigorous internal data analysis plus comparisons with local and national data provide evidence that during the academic year 2012/2013 the attainment and progress of the majority of these children was at least in line with non-Pupil Premium children within the context of the school, the Local Authority and nationally.

Pro-rata contributions from Pupil Premium towards the funding of the schools many varied dinnertime and after school clubs and a continuation of the schools policy of totally funding the many visitors it has into school and the trips out to places of interest in order to enrich the curriculum further (of which a pro-rata contribution from Pupil Premium was used) ensured that no individual or group (including Pupil Premium) was discriminated against and could access everything on an equal basis.

Pupil Premium Allocation 2011 / 12 - £21,025

In the academic year 2011 / 12 the money was spent on: -

  • supporting pupils through the provision of additional staffing, providing specialist intervention programmes
  • supplementing the SEN budget to provide further specialist support (outreach)
  • supplementing specialist extra curricular provision in order to increase access for more pupils.

The school has a policy of non charging of its families for all educational visits / visitors in order to avoid any discrimination; Pupil Premium was used to supplement this.
