Projected Spend

In order to identify projects that demonstrate the greatest impact on learning, the school has used a calculation tool from the Sutton Trust.  The Sutton Trust was founded in 1997 by Sir Peter Lampl to improve social mobility through education. As well as being a think-tank, the Sutton Trust is a ‘do-tank,’ having funded over 200 programmes, commissioned over 170 research studies and influenced Government education policy by pushing social mobility to the top of the political agenda.  Their calculation tool considers intervention strategies (such as use of adults or constructive feedback) and weighs their cost/impact versus the potential it can accelerate a child's learning measured in +/- months progress. Not all interventions have a positive impact. St Paul's seeks to use strategies that provide both the best impact within a limited budget.

Summary of PPG spending 2015-16

Objectives in spending PPG:

  1. To provide additional support in Reception which supports 40% of the disadvantaged pupils in the school
  2. To provide additional support & targeted sessions in reading, writing & maths
  3. To provide specific targeted feedback & to continuously monitor & evaluate progress
  4. To ensure early intervention supported by additional “catch up” programmes
  5. To provide enrichment programmes

Summary of spending:

  • Additional staffing support in Reception to ensure a good start to primary education: £9250
  • Counselling and mental health support: £3050
  • Specific learning intervention: £10907
  • Enrichment: £866

Impact:

  • Children without additional need are making at least Age Related Expectations in all year groups (12 out of 15, 80%)
  • Children with additional needs not making Age Related Expectations but from their starting point are making at least expected progress in all year groups (3 out of 15, 20%).
  • 1 child is making less than expected progress.

Commentary:

  • Pupil Premium funding for 2015-16 has been weighted to one class. Strategically, the additional support has made a positive impact on PP learners and the support will follow the class into Y1.

Strategy for 2016-17

  • Focus support in upper KS2 (30% of PP)
  • Phonic and learning support in Y1 (40%) following an increased group of Pupil Premium in this class
  • Maintain counselling & mental health support across the school (16% of PP budget)
  • Monitor intake for Reception being mindful that 2015-16 experienced a significant bulge of PP pupils (Y1-3 have 2 pupil premium pupils across the three years)
  • Offer extended school hours to all Pupil Premium pupils

The number of pupils who are registered as 'Pupil Premium' is lower than Barnet's average and lower than National Average.
