Pupil premium 2013-14

In the 2013 to 2014 financial year, Barlborough Primary School will receive £953 funding for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years.  Schools also receive additional funding for looked after and service children.

This year our school will receive £22166.

Here are our latest spending plans –

Our key objective in using the Pupil Premium is to narrow the gap between pupil groups.  We have a positive track record of pupils making good progress but there is a gap between the attainment and progress of disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged children.  This gap is also seen Nationally.  Through targeted support we are working to eliminate barriers to learning.  We hope that our disadvantaged children will make accelerated progress and we work hard to try and narrow the gap between them and their peers.

The Sutton Trust findings have had a significant impact on the way the school has decided to use the Pupil Premium Funding.

Total expenditure

£20910

This leaves a small amount of money which will be used to support pupil premium children as situations arise.

The school’s self-evaluation is rigorous.  Pupils are tracked over time and any dips are quickly identified and appropriate and effective strategies are put in place.

The  impact  of  interventions  is  analysed termly and these are adapted and changed in order to the meet the pupils’ needs.

In 2014, we will use a range of data to analyse impact of spending:

  • End of key stage data
  • Phonics outcomes
  • EYFS data
  • Current Data
  • Intervention analysis
  • Outcomes of observations, work scrutinies, learning walks
  • Stakeholder feedback
