Impact:

• The majority of children including the disadvantaged, have achieved their school targets set in Sept 2015 and reviewed in July 2016 for Reading, Writing, English Punctuation, Grammar & Spelling, and Maths.

• Data analysis confirms that Wincham Community Primary School children including the disadvantaged, have maintained levels of achievement inline with and above the LA and National expectations at the end of KS2

• In Year 1 Phonics testing, two children out of the three children from our ‘Pupil Premium and LAC children’ achieved the expected pass mark. In Year 2, both of our ‘Pupil Premium’ have achieved the pass mark.

• In the KS1 SATs data shows that of the two children from our ‘Pupil Premium group, one child achieved the ‘Expected’ standard in Reading, Maths and Science and the other achieved ‘working towards the expected standard’ and inline with personal targets. They both achieved ‘working towards the expected standard’ and inline with personal targets for Writing. Writing remains a focus for development for these children in 2016-2017.

• In the KS2 SATs there were seven children identified as our ‘Pupil Premium and LAC children’. From this group 58% achieved the ‘expected standard’ in Reading, Writing and Maths and 72% in GAPS, of which 29% achieved ‘above expected standard’ in GAPS. The poor attendance of one child had a very negative effect on the achievement and progress that that child made in all subjects. Intervention and additional support has been effective for all our ‘Pupil Premium and LAC children’ with good attendance.

• Current Ever6 Progression from Reception to Y6 shows that…
66% are inline or working above expectations in Reading.
44% are inline or working above expectations in Writing.
62% are inline or working above expectations in Maths
Intervention strategies, Focussed tuition and Quality first Teaching have been applied, monitored and reviewed. Further strategies are being applied to continue enabling the school to facilitate rapid progress, particularly for current Y6 in Writing.

Planned Actions for using the Pupil Premium Funding 2016-2017

1. Focused Tuition will be delivered to raise the attainment and progress of the Year 5 and Year 6 from our ‘Pupil Premium and LAC children’ in both Literacy and Maths to support their learning and confidence. There will be a particular focus on Writing, for those ‘working towards the expected standard’ and those currently predicted to achieve the expected standard but not yet confidently and consistently applying all the criteria for the ‘expected standard’.

2. All children identified as our ‘Pupil Premium and LAC children’ and not currently inline with the expected for their cohort will receive extra support. Intervention strategies and Literacy and Maths support will be timetabled weekly and matched to individual needs. TAs will work in partnership with the class teacher to identify specific learning needs, plan focused sessions and deliver lessons to develop the children’s confidence, knowledge, understanding and application thus ensuring that these children make expected progress. Termly on going assessments will be used to inform the rate of progress being made and necessary adaptations to the strategies to support these children will be applied. End of year assessments will be analysed to consider the success against expected outcomes for all ‘Pupil Premium and LAC children’.

3. Our ‘Pupil Premium and LAC children’ will be offered opportunities to be involved in extra curricular participation and Holiday Club provision. We want to ensure that the children develop health life styles and the confidence to get involved in activities beyond the school day. Multi-flex have agreed to facilitate this and funds will be allocated from the pupil premium funds. Educational visits, transport for Swimming and Musical Instrument tuition will also be funded, the parents of the disadvantaged don’t usually ask for financial support for these occasions but we need to ensure that they don’t need to worry about funding, if they want their child to have the opportunity then it will be funded from Pupil Premium.

4. The Year 6 ‘Pupil Premium and LAC children’ will have an opportunity to be involved in a number of after school ‘Booster’ study sessions which will help them prepare for the SATs tests in May 2017. End of year assessments will be analysed to consider the success against expected outcomes for these ‘Pupil Premium and LAC children’.

5. Additional resource material will be purchased to support all the above interventions and learning packages as required.

6. We need to further develop ‘Home/School’ partnerships to help accelerate the progress by all Pupil Premium and LAC children by increasing the engagement of parents with their child’s education. A Reading Workshop will be offered within EYFS and a Maths Workshop for EYFS, KS1 and KS2. Monitoring of Parent involvement and facilitating additional opportunities as required, will help build these partnerships.

7. Increase staff CPD opportunities to ensure that staff are confident in delivering quality first teaching and their assessments and marking are making a positive impact on outcomes for all pupils but particularly the disadvantaged children, this will include Numbers Count training, Phonics Training, Wellcomm Speech and Language Assessment and in-house Literacy, Maths and Science Curriculum training. TAs will attend specific training on developing Literacy and Mathematics teaching in EYFS, KS1 & KS2 to strengthen their subject knowledge and confidence to support the children in making effective progress.


Impact:
To be determined following assessments in July 2017.
Next review of this Strategy … September 2017
