homePupil Premium and Year 7 Catch up

Current Use 2018-19 – Use of some Unqualified Teacher time and some Enhanced Staffing Ratios

In the current academic year, 2018-19, the school received £27,745 in Pupil Premium Support and £5,500 in Year 7 Catch-up grant. These grants are combined to employ a full-time additional unqualified teacher and to support our enhanced staff ratios in class. The unqualified teacher time is to provide specific individual or paired tuition in Literacy and Numeracy using the class teaching focus for each area. The enhanced staff ratios provide more general in-class support for group and individual work in using/applying Literacy and Numeracy skills.

The school expects the Literacy and Numeracy outcomes for pupils supported by these grants to continue to be as strong as for the rest of the school and with some pupils remaining as our highest achieving pupils.

The Assistant Headteacher oversees the arrangements for these pupils.

Past use 2017-18 – Individual Tuition using an Unqualified Teacher

In 2017-18, the school received £21,365 in Pupil Premium Support and £4,000 in Year 7 Catch-up grant. These grants are combined to employ a full-time additional unqualified teacher (similar to 2016-17) to provide individual or paired tuition in Literacy and Numeracy areas following the class teaching areas of focus.

Our 2018 Pupil Progress analysis shows that pupils supported by Pupil Premium achieved in line with or exceed pupils with similar needs both in school and in a national comparison.

Past Use 2016-17 – Enhanced Staffing Ratios in Class

At the beginning of the academic year 2016-17 the Pupil Premium and Year 7 Catch-up grants were combined to continue the increase in support levels in class. In the Summer Term 2017 this approach was discussed alongside the merits of using individualised support and it was agreed to employ an additional unqualified teacher to go back to direct 1:1 and paired teaching. This was focused on enhancing progress in Literacy and Numeracy.

In 2016/17 the school received £23,370 in Pupil Premium and £3,500 in Year 7 Catch-up Grant. Expenditure was evenly spread across the year providing additional levels of class support and individual teaching.
