SHERWOOD PARK SCHOOL PUPIL PREMIUM GRANT EXPENDITURE       2017/18

 

Overview

Pupil Premium funding has been provided to ‘close the gap’ so that disadvantaged pupils progress as well as other pupils.

The indicator of pupils who are disadvantaged is those who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) who are in Reception to Year 11. This also includes those who have ever been eligible for this in the last 6 years- known as the ‘Ever 6’ including Looked after Children = LAC

ANALYSIS

Pupil Premium pupils did as well as Non Pupil Premium pupils in all areas of English and Maths and exceed them in all areas except Measure. Pupil Premium funding has been used well to close the gap.

Pupil Premium pupils do slightly less well in their PLP targets (only 5%). This shows that our high focus on each pupil’s priority targets had had an effect on closing the gap. 

 

Two Looked After Children (LAC pupils)

Both met Expected & Exceeded progress in all areas of English 

One met Expected & Exceeded progress in all areas of Maths, the other is a complex PMLD pupil who has very limited physical movements which affects her ability to access practical Maths activities. It should be noted that she was only a LAC pupils due to the number of respite days she was accessing. She is no longer classified as LAC.

 

PROJECTED SUMMARY OF PPG SPENDING 2017/18        Key: PMLD = Profound Multiple Learning Difficulties

                                                                          ASD = Autistic Spectrum Disorder

 

 

1.      Employ a highly qualified and experienced Occupational Therapist that is certified as an Advanced Sensory Integration Practitioner two mornings a week for three terms , to work over the two campuses ( 21 Pupil Premium pupils will benefit from this targeted funding)

 

Sensory Integration is the neurological process that organises sensation from your own body and the environment, thus making it possible to use the body effectively within the environment. For some children, sensory integration does not develop smoothly. They may not be able to rely on their senses to give them an accurate picture of the world, they don’t know how to behave in response and they may have trouble learning and behaving appropriately. She will ensure the successful implementation of Sensory Programmes for Pupil Premium pupils that will be integrated within their learning throughout the school day and in their Personalised Learning Programmes, especially in their ‘Readiness to Learn’ outcomes. Pupils will be enabled to access and progress well in their learning.

She will also: give advice and support around the sensory equipment that individual pupils would benefit from in order to meet their sensory needs

                   : provide and give teachers advice/strategies that can be implemented in their teaching

                   : write reports for Annual Reviews/EHC Plans

                   : provide advice to Parents at a termly Parents evening

                   : provide staff training

                   : provide guidance, support and programmes for the OT Assistant to follow

Projected spend of £15,500

 

2.     Employ an OT Assistant who will be able to implement Sensory Programmes on a regular basis with some of our pupils who have high sensory needs. This will enable them to have their sensory needs more fully met and to be more ‘Ready to Learn’. Resulting in good progress and learning outcomes for these pupils

( 7 Pupil Premium pupils will benefit directly from this targeted funding)

 Projected spend of  £5,850

 

3.     Additional Teaching Assistant time in Primary ASD class for 1 hour daily to ensure that these pupils access more individualised learning through TEACCH, resulting in improved overall progress, especially in Literacy and Numeracy ( 3 Pupil Premium pupils will benefit directly from this targeted funding)

Projected spend of £2657.85

 

4.     Employment of a Play Therapist to support the emotional well-being of Secondary ASD pupils enabling them to engage with others (peers) more effectively and build trusting relationships with staff.  This will also enable them to work through issues related to their emotions, which they are not necessarily able to express in straight forward ways, leading to sustained good attendance and further increase their engagement and achievement in all areas of the curriculum. ( 5 Pupil Premium pupils will benefit from this targeted funding)

Projected spend of £2,000

 

5.     Purchase of Sensory Resources and equipment including a fixed and bespoke swing frame for vestibular input to support the Secondary ASD pupils who require support with sensory processing and integration, ensuring that they are ready to learn to meet their potential each day and support their individual OT programmes. 

( 7 Pupil Premium pupils will benefit from this targeted funding)

Projected spend of £4,462.15

 

NB Many pupils will benefit from more than one area of funding use.
