Pupil Premium 2015 - 2016

Moss Hall Infant School
Pupil Premium Expenditure
April 2015 - March 2016 

 
CONTEXT
Moss Hall Infant School is a four form entry school in the London Borough of Barnet. We have high aspirations and ambitions for our children and we believe that no child should be left behind. We strongly believe that it is not about where you come from but your passion and thirst for knowledge, and your dedication and commitment to learning that make the difference between success and failure, and we are determined to ensure that your children are given every chance to realise their full potential. Pupil premium funding represents a growing portion of our budget and we are committed to ensuring it is spent to maximum effect.
 
The Pupil Premium was introduced by the Coalition Government in April 2011 to close the gap in attainment between pupils from less affluent backgrounds. It is allocated to children from low-income families who are in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM), Looked After Children (LAC) and pupils who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years (Ever6).
 
The Pupil Premium funding which Moss Hall Infant School receives in our school budget is used to make a contribution to the cost of a range of intervention and support programmes. This support ensures that all our Pupil Premium children are supported in their learning so that they can make the best possible progress. These children are very high priority and form our ‘Virtual Class’ which is monitored half termly with the Leadership Team, Class Teachers and the Governing Body.

We track the children’s progress through discussions with class teachers at termly meetings, and this enables us to measure the impact of the additional funding we receive. By knowing the needs of specific groups of children and carefully targeting these needs, we can close the gap in attainment between pupil groups.
 
Our aim this year is to further increase the percentages of children working at or above the age related expectations in the Early Years Foundation Stage and in KS1.  Through analysis of our previous spending of the Pupil Premium and the progress made by key groups of children this new plan has been created based on the following principles.
   
Objectives of Pupil Premium Spending
We have analysed our data thoroughly and examined the impact of current interventions, whilst making use of a range of research to inform our decision making. Our priorities for the spending are based on the following research.
 
  • Developing parental engagement - LPPA
  • Developing language delay - EPPSE
  • Providing high quality feedback - Education Endowment Foundation Toolkit
  • Deployment of Teaching Assistants - Education Endowment Foundation Toolkit
