Pupil Premium

Premium 2016/17

  • This year we have £147,650 in our Pupil Premium allocation. This money is being used to enable us:-
  • To continue the high level of additional staffing to enable the small teaching groups to take place.
  • To continue funding extra-curricular and enrichment activities so that the children are allowed to experience activities which may otherwise be unobtainable to them. This enables them to have an opinion, grow in confidence and try new things! Many of the children in school are thrilled to take part in our enrichment opportunities and they enjoy experiences which they never forget, long after leaving Netherton Moss.
  • To continue the refurbishment of various areas for learning around the school. This is to ensure high quality learning environments for the small, targeted intervention groups we have, as well as providing areas for pastoral care.

Other funded enrichment activities:

  • Purchase of a class set of iPads
  • Pupil Premium has also allowed us to purchase new resources enabling children to access the New National Curriculum effectively. We have purchased a wide variety of assessment materials and programmes of study to support the new changes within the curriculum. This has enabled teachers to continually update the delivery of quality lessons.

Staffing:

  • (Additional LSA hours across both key stages) This facilitates small, targeted learning groups, as well as providing support for vulnerable children. Small group interventions have enabled children to learn and make progress at their own pace. In addition, a variety of lunch time clubs have been created enabling children to access activities that ordinarily would not be available to them on a regular basis.
  • (2x 0.6 Class Teachers. KS1&2) This facilitates small, targeted learning groups, allowing children to gain confidence in their ability to achieve, and helping to narrow the attainment gap

This support allows children to learn at their pace, and at their level, without feeling inadequate in front of the whole class thus building their confidence and self-esteem. Children are able to discuss, choose and work on identified areas of weakness confidently, which in turn allows children to achieve and make progress. The expenditure also facilitates specific, targeted interventions to take place to enable the children to move forward and continue to make progress. “I love learning with Mrs Ray, she really helps me to understand” Year 5

  • provides social and emotional as well as bereavement support. This intervention has benefitted the children enormously as they have an adult in school who they trust, like and feel safe with, in a secure environment to share their thoughts and feelings.

Whole school playground resources:

  • To develop social skills and enhance friendship groups, encouraging children to work inclusively and collaboratively. There has been a marked reduction in the number of incidents reported on the playground since the new equipment has been made available.

School Fund:

  • Enables teachers to purchase resources to enhance learning and experiences within the classroom.

 

All Pupil Premium children are tracked and progress is recorded on our school tracking system. After analysis, the data informs teaching staff where and what interventions are required to secure progress. Staff meet every half term to record details of interventions and next steps for our PP children. PP funds these meetings.

Impact of Pupil Premium on the children:

  • The children benefit from a suitable level of support and intervention which enables as many as possible to achieve the appropriate end of year expectations, and when necessary to catch up.

 

  • SEN interventions suggested by outside agencies are having a positive impact on attainment, progress and behaviour.
  • The impact of Pupil Premium expenditure is monitored and evaluated through the use of termly lesson observations, scrutiny of children’s work, half termly meetings with support and teaching staff to evaluate the impact of specific interventions.
  • Performance management objectives for staff related to the use of additional adults.

Netherton Moss is a popular school and has rising numbers.  Visitors to our school are struck by the calm environment in classrooms, the friendly demeanour of the pupils, the enthusiasm for learning, the respect that pupils have and the manner in which they ‘look out’ for each other.  The last OFSTED report highlighted “the welcoming and happy school where behaviour is good and pupils are polite and friendly”.
