Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Strategy 2019/2020

School Aims:

We aim to ensure that every child leaves Crackley Bank Primary able to display our school ethos of Care + Belief + Pride = Success. We aim for all of our pupils to be excited about learning and determined to succeed. We want to equip them with confidence, resilience and a passion for justice and equality. These qualities will enable them to achieve at all stages of their future lives. The targeted and strategic use of Pupil Premium funding will support us in achieving our aims.

Principles: 

Our principles are based upon addressing the barriers that affect some of our pupils – low attainment upon entry, social and emotional issues, and high mobility into the school all impact upon our pupils learning. We also focus upon addressing gaps in pupils’ understanding of the world in which they live to ensure that they develop into adults who contribute to their local, national and global communities in a meaningful and productive manner.

Pupil Premium funding will be allocated following annual needs analyses which will identify priority classes and groups.

Provision:

We have a range of provision in place to support children who belong to vulnerable groups, including those who are socially disadvantaged. This provision has the full support of the Governing Body and includes:

Barriers to future attainment (for pupils eligible for PP including high ability)

  A

Significantly low attainment of PP on entry to Nursery and pupils new to Reception.

  B

Pupils phonetic knowledge is low upon entry to Nursery and pupils new to Reception and this impacts upon reading ability in KS1.

Gaps in knowledge & skills in Maths and English due to mobility. KS1 data is often not reflective of the attainment upon entry to KS2. 21% of Y6 2019 pupils joined after KS1.

  D

Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs impacting upon ability to progress.

  E

Lack of fluency of number facts and arithmetic impacting upon reasoning and problem solving.

  F

Low aspirations and expectations from pupils.
