  • the pastoral/family support arrangements around pupils who attract the pupil premium are now stronger and more effective
  • the attendance of pupils who attract the pupil premium has improved, particularly in terms of persistent absence.

For the academic year 2016 – 2017, the impact of the pupil premium is set out below.

This spend had a significant, positive impact.

How you spent the pupil premium allocation The effect of the expenditure on eligible and other pupils
Pupils in YR received quality, full time provision. As a result, they made significant gains as evidenced by our current high reception GLD percentage (81%) in reading, writing and mathematics l
Pupils were provided with additional learning, after school and in holiday breaks having a significant impact on their outcomes Levels attained at the end of KS1 are in excess of national averages. 

 

KS1 RWM combined 92%  (national 64%)

KS2 RWM  67% combined  (national 71%)

 

 

 

Disadvantaged pupils across the school performed better  than ‘all’ pupils nationally.

 

 

 

 

Pupils were provided with a wide range of curricular and extra-curricular opportunities, through educational visits and on residential school journeys. This enriched our already extensive provision and gave important stimulus for writing and reading in class
Funding was spent on an experienced mathematics consultant improving the quality of teaching of mathematics across the school
Funding for home school support worker and other interventions such as speech and language therapy meant some of our most vulnerable disadvantaged pupils received support to overcome barriers to their learning. This enabled them to perform to their full ability and achieve to their potential.
The quality of early phonics teaching continued to improve across the academy
due to the expert support and guidance of a specialist school improvement partner, the teaching of this subject, particularly by NQTs and those new to teaching, continued to improve.
 

 

KS1 phonics check achieved for 2016/17 was 86%

 

 

 

PE grant statement

For the academy year 2017-18, Solebay Primary expects to receive £5253 in primary school PE and sport funding. The academy plans to spend this as follows:

  • £1000 to ensure that we offer the adventurous activities element of the PE national curriculum to all year groups
  • £4253 to fund the costs of providing swimming lessons for as many pupils as possible, over and above the National Curriculum requirement. We have also taken on a specialist sports teacher during the autumn, spring and summer terms.

For the 2017 to 2018 academic year, there is a new condition requiring schools to publish how many pupils within their year 6 cohort are meeting the national curriculum requirement to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres, use a range of strokes effectively and perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations. We will meet the requirement to publish this data by the April deadline.

For the academic year 2016-17, Solebay Primary received £5253 in primary school PE and sport funding. The academy has spent this as follows:

  • £1000 to ensure that we offer the adventurous activities element of the PE national curriculum to all year groups
  • £4253 to fund the costs of providing swimming lessons for as many pupils as possible, over and above the National Curriculum requirement. We have also taken on a specialist sports teacher during the autumn, spring and summer terms

This spend had a significant, positive impact:

  • pupils experienced an enhanced range of adventurous activities, more than meeting the requirements of the PE national curriculum.  This opportunity is provided for very every pupil, in addition to either PE taught by a PE specialist or high quality swimming instruction.
  • pupils continued to receive high quality swimming instruction.  This has a positive impact on the pupils’ depth of knowledge and expertise in swimming as the pupils proceed in to key stage two.
