Whilst for each pupil who is looked-after, or previously looked-after, the school receives £2,300.

The aim when spending the pupil premium grant is to address each individual child’s performance and needs in order to close the attainment gap. This includes social and emotional development as well as providing academic support. Currently the primary needs for eligible pupils at the Deanery are social and emotional concerns (39%), learning and cognition (53%), EAL (4%) and attendance (4%).

The grant is allocated according to the financial year, but once an application has been received and the child is shown to be eligible for pupil premium funding, we ensure that their needs are being addressed straightaway.

In 2018-19 there were three children completing Key Stage 1 who were eligible for pupil premium funding.

In reading, 100% of children achieved the expected standard compared to 79% of all pupils nationally.

In writing, 100% of children achieved the expected standard compared to 57% of all pupils nationally.

In mathematics, 100% of children achieved the expected standard compared to 82% of all pupils nationally.

Key Stage 2

In 2018-19 there were no children eligible for pupil premium funding in Year 6 at Deanery.

As a result of funding providing emotional support, children in both Key Stages are better able to access the whole curriculum; manage emotions and behaviours and develop social skills in order to participate in a wide range of enriching activities.

Allocation of funding in 2019-20

The funding allocated for 2019-20 is £37,700. This will continue to be used to support children with their social and emotional development as well as cognition and learning.  Four children (14%) are also on the SEND register and have specific targets on their One Page Profile.

Funding will be used:

• To provide resources and equipment to support learning (£3,000)
• To provide intervention activities and small group work (£17,000)
• To support children in developing social skills (£3,000)
• To enable access to a wider curriculum through visits and clubs (£7,000)
• To purchase outside agency professionals to support individuals (£2,000)
Monitoring continues by class teachers, subject leaders and termly meetings with SLT to discuss pupils’ progress. Governors are also kept informed through termly reports.
Pupil premium impact will be measured against a range of factors, including well-being, attendance, attainment, behaviours, access to the curriculum and progress.
