North Star and Polaris formed a unique partnership in 2016 to support school improvement across North Yorkshire and work with around 70 primary schools in the region. Our collective aim is to improve outcomes for all children through a self-sustaining, dynamic system of school improvement and support across North Yorkshire and beyond. '

Pupil Premium Funding

Purpose

The pupil premium is funding in addition to main school funding to address the current underlying inequalities in achievement between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers.

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’).

Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months, and children of service personnel.

 

Principles

Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However they will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding through new measures in the performance tables which will show how disadvantaged pupils perform compared to their peers; Ofsted inspections and reports for parents which have to be published online.

The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers.

Pupil Premium 2016/17

The school has been allocated £3960 for the financial year 2016/2017. The funding is currently being used to provide daily 1:1 support to address speech and language needs and to support the development of reading and writing skills. Some equipment has also been purchased to support the development of fine motor control. The impact of current measures will be reviewed in January 2017.

 

Pupil Premium 2015/16

The school was allocated £10,120. The funding was used to provide 1:1 teaching and small group teaching to secure basic skills and accelerate progress in reading, writing and maths in the first instance. The support was successful in reading but not in maths. Some monies were also be used towards funding ‘drama’ sessions to enhance the self-esteem and self-confidence of individuals.  This had a very positive impact on the self-esteem and self-confidence of one child with major difficulties at home.
