Pupil Premium Strategy Statement for 2018 – 2019

The staff and governors at Hardwick recognise the importance of using Pupil Premium funding to support the most disadvantaged in our school.  Our aim is to “diminish the difference” in attainment for those pupils in receipt of pupil premium and when compared to their peers. 

Our total Pupil Premium budget is £51, 480

Teaching Assistants in Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2

 

All our classes in Key Stage 1 and 2 have at least one full time teaching assistant. 

28% of the children entitled to Pupil Premium funding are also on our SEN register.  We have detailed information regarding the various interventions and the support we run throughout the year for those pupils who qualify for pupil premium.  Many of these interventions are run by our highly skilled team of Teaching Assistants.

The total cost of this initiative is £10,807

 

Swift Access to Educational Psychologist

 

Six pupils were referred to a private Educational Psychologist.  Of these pupils, 33% were pupils who qualify for pupil premium funding.  All the assessments took place within 6 weeks of referral and the Educational Psychologists report fed into the Pupil Profiles.  Progress of our SEN children was at least good. 

 

The total cost of this initiative is £ 6,000

 

Access to Behaviour Support Services

 

2 pupils have been able to access Play Therapy who provide Behaviour Support. One was in receipt of pupil premium.  Through this support we have been able to avoid exclusions. 

 

The total cost of this initiative is £2,000

Home School Community Link Worker

 

40% of the children on our Pastoral Support register are in receipt of Pupil Premium.  Of this pupil group 85% received support from the HSCLW.  92% of children in this vulnerable group-maintained attendance above 95%.  We see good attendance as a prerequisite to improving attainment.

 

The total cost of this initiative was £8,200

Breakfast Club

Pupil Premium funds 24 children to attend Breakfast Club.  For most of these pupils, but not all, there is an issue with punctuality and attendance.  We see the need to improve attendance as a prerequisite to improving attainment and progress.     We see regular attendance as a prerequisite to improving progress and attainment.
