Pupil Premium

 

Pupil Premium Strategy 2020-2021

 

Context

 

Overview

  • The Pupil Premium was first introduced in April 2011 as additional funding to schools to help support the achievement of pupils who were deemed as potentially ‘disadvantaged’. 

  • Schools currently receive additional funding for children who are registered for Free School Meals, Ever 6 (were registered for FSM within the last 6 years), children of parents who are in the Forces, children who are adopted, children who are Looked After.

  • Funding is calculated from the school census returns.

 

Pupil Premium general objectives at The Streetly Academy

  • The pupil premium will be used to provide additional educational support to improve progress and to raise the achievement of disadvantaged students.

  • The funding will be used to narrow and close the gap between achievement of these pupils and their peers.

  • The school will use the additional funding to address any underlying inequalities between children eligible for Pupil Premium and others.

  • We will ensure that the additional funding reaches the pupils who need it most and that it makes a significant impact on their education and lives.

In 2020-21 the deprivation Pupil Premium allocation is confirmed at:

£299 190 based on 290 pupils out of 1296, representing 22.3%


 

Barriers to Learning

 

  • Literacy - Diminished communication skills - increasing number of students in KS3 and KS4 who have reading ages significantly below their chronological age. Currently 40% of all Pupil Premium students' Vocabulary is limited and level of comprehension is poor. 

  • Numeracy - Lower knowledge of mathematical facts, can include just basic times tables. Written numerical methods are not secure. Pupil Premium students' ability to retain facts and apply mathematical reasoning when solving problems is poor, when compared to non-pupil premium.

  • Student aspirations - It has been identified from the POLAR score, provided by HEFCE, that a large number of students living in the Kingstanding area (majority of our PP students) do not go on to higher education and high level apprenticeships.

  • Learning Behaviours- Students less engaged in the lesson and lower understanding of the importance of the learning and where this will take them in the future. Many students are compliant in lessons but can be passive. 

  • Students' mindset,motivation and resilience is often impacted by personal/family circumstances. 

  • Parents of disadvantaged students' engagement with their child’s education ie. attending parents evenings, performances
