Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) and Free School Meals

Pupil Premium Provision 2018-2019

Our motto states that ‘All Can Achieve’ and equality of opportunity, and the removal of all barriers to that equality, is a key rationale to the decisions that we make here at HCACP. Our policies and provision aim to remove the obstacles which prevent young people from achieving in life and we actively promote a culture and environment without prejudice and discrimination. Given that all students do not begin their secondary education from the same starting point, we will actively provide opportunities for those students who have faced disadvantage in their past, in order to ensure that ‘All Can Achieve’ in a community which is built around our core values of Community, Courage, Courtesy, Co-operation and Contribution. A particular focus for the 2018-2019 academic year is the achievement of PPG students in English at GCSE. In order to improve their attainment in English, all PPG students will receive support from the beginning of Y7 regardless of prior attainment at KS2. In addition to the general support offered to PPG students, targeted support will be tailored to individual needs over the course of their education.

The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) applies to students from families who have been disadvantaged at some point in the last six years and, along with students in receipt of free school meals (FSM), the school is able to provide additional funds and resources to counteract any disadvantage. If a student is eligible for either PPG or FSM, all matters regarding the use of this fund will be treated with discretion and in confidence. Parents and Carers can check their eligibility for FSM, and apply online, without having to discuss the details of their circumstances with anyone at the Academy via the My Free School Meals web site at https://www.myfreeschoolmeals.com/

Barriers to Learning

HCACP strives to provide all PPG and FSM students with the resources needed to overcome any potential barriers to learning. The following list is an indication of the main barriers to educational achievement for disadvantaged students at HCACP:

  • Lack of personalised learning and ability to access the curriculum
  • Challenging behaviour and an inability to interact successfully in a school environment
  • Lack of positive role models outside of school
  • Low levels of literacy and numeracy
  • Low self-esteem and confidence
  • Lack of personal aspirations and/or an understanding of career possibilities and further academic opportunities
  • Fewer opportunities to benefit from cultural and social events and experiences
  • Inability to fund curricular enrichment opportunities, including day and residential trips
  • Inability to purchase educational resources, including study support materials, subject resources and IT facilities
  • Poor levels of attendance and punctuality

In order to overcome the above barriers, the PPG allocation report below indicates how the PPG allocation is spent and the rationale for that allocation. 

The current EVER 6 FSM is 33.7% (Pupil Premium Grant).  There are currently 18 students who are Looked After Children.

 

Projected PPG Grant for 2018/19 is £300,675 (£935x303+£965x18LAC)

Y7 Literacy and Numeracy – School Ready and Y7 Catch Up

For 2018-2019, all Y7 students who are not school ready will receive additional tuition in Literacy and Numeracy. Tuition with be in small groups taught as part of the enrichment programme and will consist of two literacy groups and one numeracy group taught over three afternoons. Attendance will be compulsory as part of the enrichment programme.

Students identified as having below 100 for their standardised score on the KS2 SATS data (in either reading or writing) will have targeted literacy intervention. The intervention will consist of a rigorous literacy programme taught in small groups by the SENCO.

The intervention programme primarily focuses on:

  • Spelling – with a focus on homophones
  • Sentence types
  • Tenses
  • Use of punctuation
  • Understanding the academy marking policy
  • Using paragraphs
  • Reading accurately
  • Reading comprehension

     

The progress of the students will be monitored and reviewed throughout the programme. Should students make sufficient progress, they will be exited from the programme. Students may be referred for more targeted intervention if necessary.

Numeracy

To improve the numeracy of Y7 students who are not yet school ready, intervention sessions run every Tuesday for 30 minutes after school with all identified pupils expected to attend. Attendance is recorded for each session with action taken for both good and poor attendance.

The main focus points of the intervention are:

  • To identify the weaker knowledge areas of the students and, in turn, the mathematical subject focus points for the sessions. For example. percentages, fractions etc.
  • To improve the confidence levels of the pupils when addressing mathematical issues both academically and in real life issues.
  • To encourage pupils to be confident and independent learners and to approach teachers whenever needing assistance with maths.
  • Ito improve the scores/levels of the identified pupils in order to reach the expected age standard.

The progress made from the sessions will be analysed through the HARS results and individual teacher feedback based on timetabled lesson study and homework etc.
