Pupil Premium Shirley Junior School Academic Year 2016-2017


What is Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools so that they can support their disadvantaged pupils and close the attainment gap between themselves and their peers. The funding is allocated to schools for children from Reception to Year 11. The Government gives schools pupil premium funding for:
•  every child currently registered as eligible for free school meals
•  all children eligible for free school meals at any point in the past 6 years
•  children who have been looked after by the local authority
•  children whose parents serve in the armed forces
The Pupil Premium funding for 2016-17 presented schools with £1320 per disadvantaged child of primary school age.
Our objective is to ensure pupils in vulnerable groups have accelerated rates of progress and achieve atleast in line with other pupils with the same start point. The PPG contributes towards achieving this objective.

Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP)



When making decisions about using pupil premium funding it is important to consider the context of the school and any challenges ahead. Our key objective in using the Pupil Premium Grant is to diminish the difference between pupil premium children and their peers. Through targeted interventions we are working to eliminate barriers to learning and progress.
As a school, we collect data for all of our pupils termly. From here our Pupil Premium Lead then analyses the data of our Pupil Premium children. We then compare their progress and attainment to our non Pupil Premium children. We also use Raise Online and Local education authority data summary to compare our results against national and local expectations. This helps us to develop strategies and interventions to promote improvement. We use a range of monitoring to help us evaluate the strategies which we put in place. These are data, pupil progress meetings, pupils’ work, planning, and observations. From this process interventions are adapted or changed if they are not working. We regularly discuss our strategies, interventions and progress with the Senior Leadership Team and Governors. A member of the governing body is responsible for liaison with the school’s pupil premium lead.
