Pupil Premium Funding for 2018-19 and 2019-2020

Details of how the pupil premium allocation was spent

In 2018-2019 St Anne’s school allocated £237,490 to pupil premium activities.

Our main objective was: to raise the attainment of pupils who are Pupil Premium so that the gap between them and "Other" pupils nationally was narrowed, by removing barriers to educational achievement.

We identified 5 key barriers:

1)      Lower aspiration

2)      Arriving in year 7 with lower starting points

3)      Lower attendance

4)      Access to resources outside of school

5)      Access to enrichment experiences both within and outside of school such as school trips.

 Our actions were as followed linked to these 5 key barriers:

1)      Lower aspiration: Attendance rewards, behaviour rewards, working with the mental health nurse, revision courses, access to counsellors, access to the careers advisor.

2)      Arriving in year 7 with lower starting points: access to computer software to identify needs, extra maths teaching in years Key Stage 3, English and maths intervention during registration.

3)      Lower attendance: Access to the Educational Welfare Officer, emergency transport to school if issues with transport.

4)      Access to resources outside of school: Buying, where needed, books, education equipment, computer consumables and uniform; and external tuition of year 11,

5)      Access to enrichment experiences: Paying for Shakespeare in Schools, and subsidising school trips.

All pupils eligible for extra funding have been identified and have a comprehensive mentoring system with our academic mentoring team, which will signpost pupils to some these resources above to ensure the right pupils are getting the right needs met.

 Use of Pupil Premium Funding for 2019-20

The amount of the school’s pupil premium allocation

The Pupil Premium Funding for 2019 – 2020 at St Anne’s School has been allocated provisionally at £244,970

A summary of the main barriers to educational achievement faced by eligible pupils at the school

We have found that the barriers to educational achievement for eligible pupils vary considerably at an individual level. For this reason, our academic mentoring system has been vital in identifying these barriers at that level and addressing them. However, broadly speaking these barriers have included:

  • lower aspiration,
  • arriving in Year 7 with lower starting points,
  • lower attendance,
  • access to resources outside of school, and
  • access to enrichment experiences both within and outside of school such as school trips.

 

How the pupil premium allocation is to be spent to address those barriers and the reasons for that approach

The funding will be directed towards improving the learning experience and progress of targeted pupils at key stage three and key stage four through a range of activities as identified at an individual level through academic mentoring and scrutiny of other evidence such as progress data, but will include:

  • lower aspiration,

o   Providing access to external agencies such as the YMCA and mental health support.

o   Providing rewards to pupils.

o   Providing access to opportunities with the local universities.

o   Access to independent, high-quality careers advice.

 

  • arriving in Year 7 with lower starting points,

o   English Intervention

o    Maths Intervention

o   Extra Maths classes at Key Stage 3

 

  • lower attendance,

o   Providing access to external agencies such as the EWO

 

  •  access to resources outside of school, and

o   Support of pupils through provision of educational equipment, stationery and materials

o   Support for parents paying for external tuition.

 

  • access to enrichment experiences both within and outside of school such as schools trips.

o   Enrichment activities such as visiting actors, support of payment for trips.

 

How the school is to measure the impact and effect of its expenditure of the pupil premium allocation

The effectiveness of the above activities will be seen through progress and attainment data of pupils as they are tracked through the school, and final outcomes at the end of Key Stage 4.
