Pupil Premium and Catch Up Premium

LYLS FINAL CONCEPT

The Academy receives three types of premium funding:

Pupil Premium, which is detailed below
Primary PE and Sport Premium (click here link for further details)
Year 7 Catch-up Premium (click here link for further details)

Pupil Premium 2016-17

Pupil premium is funding allocated to schools based on the number of Free School Meals learners and Looked After Children that attend that school. For Free School Meals it also includes those learners who have been on the FSM lists at any point in the previous six years.  In the financial year 2016-17 this equates to £935 per learner in secondary and £1,320 in primary. Schools also receive £300 for every ‘Services’ learner.

In the current Academic year it is anticipated that the Academy will receive £1,333,513 of pupil premium funding.

 

Barriers to Achievement

A large number of learners eligible for pupil premium also have other issues, for example, linked to attendance or special needs. These can include:

  • Low self-esteem and confidence in their own abilities which leads to a lack of volition from disadvantaged students. Students do not take ownership of their learning and therefore do not strive to achieve the highest possible outcomes.
  • Poor attendance.
  •  Lack of confidence caused by poor literacy and numeracy levels.  This impacts on students ability to access higher order exam questions.
  • Lack of engagement with parents of disadvantaged students.

We have found that it is very important for us not only to work on the classroom experience for these learners but also encouraging them in raising aspirations and expectations through working with parents, raising attendance and supporting them outside of the academy environment.

In addition, the Academy also has children who come from disadvantaged families who do not qualify for free school meals.  These children also benefit indirectly from the measures being put in place for our pupil premium pupils and the funding will raise the attainment of children from all disadvantaged families.

The 2016/17 strategies for disadvantaged pupils have been devised to remove the barriers mentioned. These strategies will be reviewed in January 2017.  Specific targets include:

  • Develop faculty pupil premium champions who will oversee the implementation of the Pupil Premium strategy.
  • Decrease absence rates of pupil premium students and decrease the persistent absent rate of pupil premium students.
  •  Ensure that literacy and numeracy levels of students in Year 7 are at the level that we would consider to be secondary ready. Students in Year 7 will follow an intensive literacy and numeracy programme before accessing the whole curriculum.
  •  Improve the engagement of parents in their child’s education by developing strategies to increase parental participation in Academy life.
  •  Promote good behaviour through the Academies behaviour management strategy and improve the alternative curriculum offer available at the Academy in order to support students who struggle behaviourally and emotionally with whole Academy life
