Robin Hood Infants School

Pupil Premium Funding 2017/18

Background

 

The Pupil Premium Grant is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings and children who are looked after. In 2013-14 this also included pupils eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years.

Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. For example, it can be used for targeted support in classes or to fund additional places in after school or lunch time clubs. We are held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families. From September 2012, we have been required to publish online information about how we have used the Pupil Premium. This will ensure that parents and others are made fully aware of the attainment of pupils covered by the Pupil Premium and the extra support that they receive.

 

At Robin Hood Infants School, our key objective in using the Pupil Premium Grant is to narrow the gap between pupil groups. As a school we have a good track record of ensuring that pupils make good or better progress, but historically levels of attainment are lower for FSM (eligible for free school meals) – this is a national trend.

Through targeted interventions we are working to eliminate barriers to learning and progress. Many children start school with low attainment on entry and our aim is to ensure that they make accelerated progress in order to reach age related expectations (or better) at the end of KS1.

 

With the introduction of Universal Free School Meals in September 2014, there has been a reduction in the number of parents registering for their child to receive pupil premium funding. We have attempted to increase take up in the following ways:-

  • Explaining the funding and encouraging registration at parent information evenings in each year group.
  • Informing parents and encouraging registration on newsletters and blanket mailings.
  • Offering free uniform for children if parents register
  • Speaking to parents during Nursery and Reception home visits and encouraging them to fill out the form to check if they are eligible.
  • Targeting individual parents to encourage registration

 

We now send forms with school registration documents and will inform parents of the funding at new parents evenings and on Reception and Nursery home visits.

Spending the pupil Premium Funding in Robin Hood Infants School

(See Pupil Premium Policy)

  • We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed
  • In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged
  • We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. Our aim is to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil the school has identified as being socially disadvantaged. Pupil premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis. However, we anticipate that the majority of pupils benefitting will be FSM.

 

This year in the Infants, we have £42,240 and we have spent the funding in the following ways:-
