Impact:   EXAMPLE needs have been predominantly emotional and behavioural this term. As a result the school has focussed on: improving EXAMPLE’s feelings of safety; developing coping strategies to reduce his anxieties; ensuring the safety of EXAMPLE and his peers; ensuring that EXAMPLE can access all lessons.

The school feels that this has been successful. EXAMPLE has attended all lessons; EXAMPLE seems happier in school; EXAMPLE has had no further incidents of aggressive behaviour.

EXAMPLE still remains very vulnerable, and school will continue to ensure these interventions are in place.

Crowdys Hill school in the financial year 2015/16 received £70,635 from pupil premium funding, including pupil premium plus grants. The government believes that the pupil premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers, by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

This funding will be used to provide opportunities, support and resources for these pupils and to reduce the effect of financial circumstances on their capacity to achieve progress. We support the government’s aim to reduce the impact that financial disadvantages have on a pupils’ barriers to learning. We aim to ensure that our pupil premium funding is used to reduce the gap between eligible pupils and their peers; and ensure that the funding is effective. We do this by analysing the impact through academic progress, and improved pupil engagement and attendance in lessons.

Historical Pupil Premium Income:

2013/14  school received £48,600

2014/15 school received £54,230 for PPG and £17,100 for PPG+

2015/16 school received £57,035 for PPG and £13,300 for PPG+

At Crowdys Hill school we have used pupil premium funding for :

Literacy and numeracy interventions during the school day

Literacy, numeracy and ICT after school clubs- free

Specialist literacy teaching assistant

Targeted Adolescent Mental Health support- a dedicated trained nurse one day per week

Two class sets of iPADS for use in maths lessons to boost pupil engagement

Behaviour Support Manager to focus on pupils with challenging behaviour or emotional difficulties which are preventing them from accessing lessons

Pastoral Support Manager to support families, and pupils with social and emotional difficulties

Free football training with qualified coach, and free transport for those in need

Homework books for PPG pupils

Increased after school clubs, with free access for PPG pupils


Financial year 2016 to 2017

In the 2016 to 2017 financial year, schools will receive the following funding for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years:

  • £1,320 for pupils in reception year to year 6
  • £935 for pupils in year 7 to year 11

Schools will also receive £1,900 for each pupil who has left local-authority care because of 1 of the following:

  • adoption
  • a special guardianship order
  • a child arrangements order
  • a residence order

If a pupil has been registered as eligible for free school meals and has also left local-authority care for any of the reasons above, they will attract the £1,900 rate.

Children who have been in local-authority care for 1 day or more also attract £1,900 of pupil premium funding. Funding for these pupils doesn’t go to their school; it goes to the virtual school head (VSH) in the local authority that looks after the child. VSHs are responsible for managing pupil premium funding for looked-after children.

Impact of individual funding for pupils eligible for pupil premium plus funding is analysed separately and available to the borough.

Proposed spending for 2016-2017

We gained good value from investing in our pastoral support manager, and our behavioural support manager, and we intend to continue with these targeted interventions.

Our after school clubs, and subsidies for residential trips are very popular and we believe that whilst the impact of these are difficult to measure accurately, they are valueable to disadvantaged children. They contribute to their life experiences, positive achievements, building resilience, and developing friendships. They expose our children to experiences which may not ever be available to them outside of school. As such we see these subsidies as an effective way to improve their life skills, and build self-esteem, which help to close the gap between disadvantaged children and their peers.

Demand for developing pupils’ emotional literacy continues to increase, for both pupils eligible and not. We have trained staff that deliver targeted support sessions. This will continue to be developed and delivered.

Our literacy support manager has worked hard to research appropriate interventions to suit our pupils. We will continue to fund these interventions as we feel that literacy interventions need to be presented over a long period of time to benefit our pupils.


Pupil premium funding for the coming year will be used to continue:

Pastoral Support manager  (M grade)

Literacy Support manager  (M grade)

Behavioural Support manager  (M grade)

SEAL support sessions

Subsidies for residential trips for PP eligible only

Subsidies for after school clubs  (including transport for PP eligible only)
