Clarkson pupil premium report February 2016

Pupil Premium Grant Expenditure report to Governors March 2015

Context

Clarkson Infant & Nursery School has 256 children on roll. We have a morning and afternoon nursery which is currently full to capacity, three reception classes, three year one classes and two year two classes. We have introduced seventeen clubs this term in order to provide extended provision for our children and target particular groups of learners.

We have high aspirations and ambitions for our children and we believe that no child should be left behind. We strongly believe that this is not about where you come from but your passion and thirst for knowledge, and your dedication and commitment to learning that make the difference between success and failure. We are determined to ensure that our children are given every chance to realise their full potential. We encourage children to aim high and achieve the best that they can. Pupil premium funding represents a significant proportion of our budget and we are committed to ensuring it is spent to maximum effect.

We believe that one of our barriers for children can be poverty of expectation and so we are determined to create a climate that does not limit a child’s potential in any way. Our school motto ’Aim high…Be the best that you can! ’ reflects our high expectations of the whole school community and we aim to be an ambitious school in every respect.

Our school is located in the town of Wisbech where there are pockets of high social deprivation and have a high percentage of children that are eligible for FSM, which brings some complex challenges. However we as a school are committed to ensuring that these challenges are mitigated so that our pupils can reach their full potential. We believe all of our learners are unique and individual and there is no ‘one size fits all’ so it is essential that we identify individual barriers in order to provide personalised targeted support so that we can enable them to flourish through accelerated progress.

Objectives of Pupil Premium Spending

When making decisions about using pupil premium funding it is important to consider the context of our school and the subsequent changes we are making and face. Common barriers for Pupil Premium children can often present as having less support at home, weaker language and communication skills, lack of confidence, more frequent behaviour difficulties and attendance/ punctuality issues. There may also be complex family situations that prevent children from flourishing The challenges are varied and there is no one size fits all.

Our key object in using the Pupil Premium Grant is to narrow the gap between pupil groups.AS a school we are tracking progress more closely looking at the impact of our new school provisions. Through new targeted interventions we are working to eliminate barriers to learning and progress. For those children that have started our school with low attainment on entry, our aim is to ensure that they make accelerated progress in order to reach age expectations as they move around the school.

We are trying hard to continue to increase the quality of day to day teaching through increasing the percentage of consistently good and outstanding lessons at our school. We shall be using our Senior Teacher to model and coach good practice within the school. In addition to this we have started to peer coach each other to support our improvement journey.

We want to raise standards in reading by enthusing children to read at home and at school for pleasure as well as purpose. We have extended our resources in our school library to appeal to all languages, gender and interests.

In addition to this we are adopting a new whole school approach to supporting children in developing their skills as writers and there will be a focus on developing children’s speaking skills to support this through ICT – film making, successful learning blog and through school council. We want our children to be able to talk confidently about their learning, where they are and what they need to improve.
