Context: Pupil Premium across the school: When taking into account the progress and attainment of groups of children consideration should be paid towards the composition of the groups. Whilst this should not be seen as a barrier, it provides a useful context.  

2015-2016

6.9% of the total number of children were on the SEN register; within the PP group this represented 15.9%.

36.6% of children had English as an additional language, within the PP group this represented 40.9%

2016-2017

47 children represented the PUPIL PREMIUM group out of a possible total of 362 children at Brandlehow.  This represented 12.9% of the total.

8.1% of the total number children were on the SEN register; within the PP group this represented 19.1% (9 children). 

35.6% of children had English as an additional language, within the PP group this was 44.7% (21 children).

Within the PP group 4 children were on the SEN register and had English as an additional language this represented 9%.

2017-2018

For the current academic year, on role we have 46 children representing the PUPIL PREMIUM group out of a possible total of 375 children at Brandlehow.

This represents 12.3% of the total. 20 of the 46 are EAL = 43% of PP are EAL

9.6% of the total number of children are on the SEN register; within the PP group this represents 26% (12 of the 46 PP children are SEND). 

4 of the 46 are SEND and EAL = 9% of PP are SEND and EAL

24 (represents 11 families) of the 46 have other siblings at the school = 53%   In total 32 families at Brandlehow qualify for Pupil Premium funding.

Objectives in spending PPF 2016-2017:

  • For all disadvantaged children to achieve their targeted levels in English and Maths KS2 SATs
  • To ‘Diminish the Difference ’ for our disadvantaged pupils compared with National Non –disadvantaged  pupils through targeted interventions

Pupil Premium money has been invested in a similar way as previous years as we believe that we have the basis of a successful model. We continue to strive to ensure that all children at Brandlehow School receive the support they require to help them attain, achieve and make progress in all aspects of learning. The review and evaluation of our practice forms a continuous part of our monitoring cycle.

Impact of Pupil Premium Spending : Attainment and Progress

2015-2016 : Attainment of disadvantaged pupils with PP funding compared with non PP children

In 2015-2016 the government moved to a new assessment framework and a new set of measures were introduced.

Any performance gaps between disadvantaged and other pupils in previous years are not directly comparable with 2016 gaps.

The difference between Brandlehow school PP and National non - PP children are indicated below.

EYS each pupil premium child representing  33% (3 children eligible as PP) 

Year 1 each pupil premium child representing 33% (3 children eligible as PP)

In Reception a target of 8 steps was set. Progress and attainment were measured form Autumn 1 to Summer 2

In Year 1 a target of 5 steps was set, progress and attainment were measured from Autumn 1 to Summer 2.

In Year 2-5 a target was set of 6 steps, progress and attainment were measured from Summer 2 to Summer 2.

In Year 6 a target was set for 4 steps, progress and attainment were measured from Summer 2 to Spring 2

Targets will be reset in September 2017.

Whilst the proportion of PP children working at age related expectations was lower, than non – PP children, progress for PP children was in line with or better in the following year groups: Reception, Year 3 and 5, as evidenced in the table above.

In Year 1 there was a marginal difference in Maths and Writing.

In Year 2 there was a marginal difference across Reading, Writing and Maths.

In Year 4 in was a gap across all subjects the most significant difference was in Writing.

3 sections identified as difference > 0.5 PP /Non PP - in each case attributed to an individual child with SEND provision.

In Year 6 there was a marginal difference in Maths.

The number of PP children in each year group varies across the school so the % each PP child represents is variable.
