Pupil Premium

Accountability

The government believes that head teachers and school leaders should decide how to use the pupil premium money within their own schools and are then held accountable for the decisions they make through:

- the performance tables which show the performance of disadvantaged pupils compared with their peers

- the Ofsted inspection framework, under which inspectors focus on the attainment of pupil groups, and in particular those who attract the pupil premium

- the reports for parents that schools have to publish online

Please see below how Bedale C of E Primary school has used pupil premium money and the impact it had on these children.

 NB: Some figures may not tally with the ‘Financial Year’ table due to pupil mobility during the year.  Also, please note that the data shown for Key Stage 1 pupils does not use the same starting point as the nationally recognised APS scale.  Therefore, please contact the school if you require further clarification.

Pupil premium money is funding which targets funds to the benefit of pupils from low income families (those children who are eligible for free school meals).  For this year pupils who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years are also included in the allocation (Ever-6 measure).

 

Pupils who are look after (in care/fostered) for more than 6 months and children from service families are also included.

 

In the 2020-21 financial year,  Bedale Primary School received Pupil Premium Funding of £80,344.00 as follows:

Barriers and issues addressed in school using Pupil Premium funding (2018-19)

In order to allocate money in the most suitable way, the school looked at the specific needs of the children receiving PP and set objectives to match - these are addressed in our pupil premium spending evaluations.

 

- Attendance of a small group of FSM pupils in Key Stage 2 is less than 90%. Their attendance has had a detrimental effect on their academic progress. Therefore, the attendance is being closely monitored by the PP champion and is now included in the SIP. Five of the nine FSM children in Year 6 have an attendance lower than 96%. Two having an attendance lower than 90%. This year group have had a specific monitoring and reward structure put in place.

- The school have identified individuals with specific needs who require support so they can access the curriculum. Members of staff have been allocated a specific PP child to support.

- Some pupils who are new to school in Year 1 and Year 2 have had specific gaps in their learning identified by school.
