Pupil Premium

At Eastlands Primary School we are committed to promoting the progress and attainment of all children, whatever their backgrounds.

What is Pupil Premium funding?

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most (Taken from the DFE website)

How much money have we received for 2015/16 for Pupil Premium? £45,853

How have we allocated this money?

  • Whole staff training in 'Read, Write, Inc'.  This is a complete literacy programme, for 4 to 7 year-olds learning to read and write and for 7 and 8 year-olds needing to catch up quickly. 
  • Purchase of whole school resources to support the implementation of 'Read, Write, Inc' literacy programme
  • Recruitment of additional support staff to implement the 'Read, Write, Inc' literacy programme (therefore reducing teaching group sizes)
  • Staff training in 'Read, Write, Inc' spelling programme.  Read Write Inc. Spelling for Years 2 to 6 has been specially created to meet the higher demands of the national curriculum spelling requirements and tests.
  • Purchase of school resources to support the implementation of 'Inspire Maths' in Key Stage 2
  •  All classes in our school have additional adult support for teaching and learning on a daily basis (approximately 15 hours per week). This ensures that the individual needs of all children are met.  The early identification of areas for development enables specific support to be provided to raise attainment and accelerate progress
  • We have a dedicated team of support staff who work across the school to ensure access to the curriculum by the provision of pre teaching and interventions in reading, writing and mathematics for children who are not working at national standards or not making expected progress
  • We have purchased a three year subscription for the 'Accelerated Reader' programme and an annual subscription for 'Effective Marking' .  Resources for each of these are purchased to ensure they have maximum impact on attainment and progress.
  • We have an online tracking system which enables us to track the progress and attainment of all children in reading, writing and mathematics on a termly basis.  This is analysed to ensure that all children, whatever their backgrounds are able to access the curriculum and are making at least good progress in their learning.  It also enables us to identify vulnerable children at the earliest opportunity. This is supplemented by an ongoing assessment system which evidences current attainment and ‘next steps’
  • Staff meet with the headteacher on a termly basis to agree class plans and discuss pupil progress. Individual action plans are written for Pupil Premium Pupils
  • To provide specific CPD opportunities for staff to enable them to provide a high level of support for children. 
  •  We provide parents with written information in relation to how they can support their children at home and hold regular information meetings relating to specific aspects of the curriculum, e.g. phonics, reading, maths, e-safety
  •  We purchase high quality resources for learning and teaching to support our learning challenge curriculum
  •  We provide a subsidy for some after school clubs, trips and visitors to enrich our learning challenge curriculum and make sure that all children are able to access additional learning experiences beyond the school day

What was the impact?

We track the progress of all of our pupils in school on a termly basis and we compare children according to different characteristics, including Free School Meals (FSM). 

The DFE also publish our results in a report called RAISEonline which analyses our school data. Here is the summary from our last published RAISEonline report for Early Years, Phonics Screening, KS1 and KS2  showing how well children who are entitled to FSM perform compared to those not entitled to FSM.
