Pupil Premium 2017-2018

 

Brooklands has a strong record with working with children who qualify for Pupil Premium. Over the past 4 years Brooklands has won a number of awards.  Brooklands has been recognised as a London Gold School as a result of the very high attainment of our Pupil Premium children and in 2015 we won a DFE award for the work we have done with our Pupil Premium children.

Pupil Premium children who attend Brooklands often make better progress and attain higher than the average for non pupil premium children nationally. This shows what a great start they get.

The government provides schools with funding to target disadvantaged and underlying inequalities that some children experience in life.

At Brooklands school we use the money to ensure that our vulnerable children achieved the best support possible. One of the measures for assessing the impact of this funding is to look at those children who currently claim free school meals (FSM) or have claimed FSM at some point during their primary school life.

 

How have we used our 2016-2017 Pupil Premium?

Brooklands's Pupil Premium allocation for 2016-2017 was £50,160 - this accounted for 20% of our school intake.

 

Additional staff provided phonics teaching across the school, this supported readers of a lower ability and helped to close learning gaps.

 

  • At times children required individual or small group work to help with learning. These groups received targeted support and we believe beginning these at an early age helped to ensure that all children were able to achieve, with a particular focus on narrowing the gap in Literacy and Maths. We employ a charity group called Beanstalk to assist in reading development of some pupil premium children.
  • Our year 6 children were taught aspects of the KS3 Maths curriculum in small group tutoring sessions
  • Early Years intervention, with a particular focus on Phonics. This is one of the reasons why we have always had 100% of Pupil Premium children passing the Phonics check by the time they leave year 2.
  • Use of ICT to support Learning and purchase of equipment/ resources to meet specific needs
  • Explicit and systematic phonics teaching.
  • Investment into high impact curriculum events that raise the aspiration and expectations of all children.
  • Inclusion support worker planned and supported interventions including Pupil Premium Children throughout the school.
  • Subsidised after school provision was given to increase the uptake of pupil premium children.
  • Additional support from the Speech and Language Therapist

How will we spend the money?

Our main objectives for the children who qualify for Pupil Premium are for them to do as well academically as children that do not qualify for Pupil Premium. We are also looking to extend their understanding of the wider world by offering them opportunities that they may not get at home.

Our Pupil Premium spend is based on high-impact, research-based recommendations from the Education Endowment Foundation and The Sutton Trust. Due to the fantastic success of the spending over the past few years we will spend the money in a similar fashion. The money will be spent on:
