Pupil Premium

From September 2012, schools are required to publish online information about how they have used the Pupil Premium Grant. This will ensure that parents and others are made fully aware of the attainment of pupils covered by the Premium.

The Pupil Premium Grant is carefully spent and tracked at Westbourne Primary School. We ensure that there is a whole-school focus on continuing to close the gap in attainment and achievement between disadvantaged children and their peers.

 

Pupil Premium money is targeted in the following ways:

 

  • Teacher and Teaching Assistant training
  • Funding clubs, trips, residential trips, holiday clubs and brownies/cubs
  • Transition workshops for children at key points
  • Strong focus on speaking and listening - e.g project work, team challenge days
  • Promoting roles and responsibilities within the school
  • Employing teachers to run specific intervention groups
  • Parent workshops
  • School Nurse and Family Support Worker - buying additional hours
  • 1:1 tuition
  • Recruiting, developing staff who work with vulnerable children
  • Promoting community links
  • Workshops and visitors raising aspirations

 

The school has in place rigorous monitoring and support systems. The outcomes for these students, as demonstrated in attainment data, compares very favourably with National and local benchmarking.

In the academic year 2017-8, the indicative Pupil Premium Grant we expect to receive amounts to £99,420. As well as continuing with the above activities (which have proven to be very successful), we plan to:

  • Engage the children with the 2012 Olympics Legacy Programme: Be the Best you can Be! The aim is to enable the children to discover their unique potential, thus inspiring and empowering them to pursue and fulfil their dreams.

  • Expand our range of creative cross-curricular and cross-phase activities to enhance children’s emotional and social wellbeing, as well as broaden their academic achievement.

  • Inspire the children with the Prince William Award (delivered by SkillForce - Heros in schools transforming lives) in order to build character and resilience as well as develop a wide-range of life skills.

  • Provide additional opportunities focused on health and fitness, such as: the Energy Club, Change4Life Club.
