Pupil Premium Spending for Year 2013-2014

The Pupil Premium funding was allocated by Government to ensure all students who are identified as eligible for the funding are given the opportunity to reach their full potential without prejudice of social, emotional or economic needs.

We were allocated £164,047.00 @ £900 per student for the academic year 2013/2014. The total number of students on roll at the time of the school census was 1031. 79 students from our student body received Free School Meals, plus we received funding for the ‘Ever Six’ students which totalled 101 students at the start of the academic year 2013-2014. The total number of students who were therefore eligible for Pupil Premium support was 180 students, making this 18% of our school population.

For the year 2013/2014 Bushey Meads has utilised the Pupil Premium funding in the following areas:

The school uses Pupil Premium funding for whole school activities and those specific to KS3, 4 and 5 (please see grids below for full breakdown)

The funding is used for planned activities and events, specific interventions and programmed support for our vulnerable students. The Pupil Premium also provides support for individual students upon parental/carer request. This has included uniform support, taking part in planned trips, amongst many others forms of individual need.

The ‘Pupil Premium Application for Support’ forms are found on the school website, which parents can download and complete, or obtain hard copies via any of the key stage offices. Each request is looked at on its own merits and authorised by the Headteacher, of which the school usually offers 50% towards any costs. This year a total of £2,674 was spent in support of students’ needs.

From the Pupil Premium Funding the school has gained 6 student/parent case studies to gain feedback.

Overall feedback was also given by parents who received pupil premium funding for items such as new uniform, plus help with a variety of other interventions, including Maths and English support, for participating in trips and taking part in events and activities The majority of parents have said that they would not have managed and that it has alleviated the fear of their child not being able to take part, especially when on low income.

Students have said the extra support has helped them gain in confidence and ability in Maths and English and that it was good being able to attend trips they would otherwise not have been able to access.

Case Studies for Pupil Premium

Student A is a female Year 10 student in receipt of Free School Meals and has received support towards the cost of her school uniform.  She participated in an outwards bounds Royal Foundation summer residential SkillsForce programme in the summer holidays at the end of July, 2014 which was paid for using Pupil Premium funds. This was a challenging week of outdoor activities and a range of helpful conversations arising from them.  The student developed self-knowledge, self awareness and a measurable boost to confidence, positivity, preparedness and resilience in the run-up to GCSEs in Year 10.  This also includes an ongoing programme of monthly coaching sessions with a SkillsForce representative.

Student B is a sixth form student where both parents are not in family home at the present time. This has given the student problems emotionally and financially in trying to continue with her education and living independently whilst the parents are away.To date her attendance has been 88.9% accounted for by her family situation. This student has received a variety of support via the Pupil Premium funding. This has included attending educational courses/trips to support her learning and understanding of her A level subject areas. Also vouchers to purchase sixth form business attire to follow the school dress code and A level textbooks and IT support to enable her to access this from home. This student to date is receiving positive feedback from her A level subject tutors and is working positively with the schools support.

Student C is from a single parent family and on Free School Meals, his attendance was below the average being at 89.5%. This student was supported via the Pupil Premium funding to attend the GCSE Geography field trip and received sustained Maths intervention, which enabled him to achieve a B grade at GCSE. He also took part in extra GCSE revision classes for both PE and English, where he engaged successfully with this provision. He also received mentoring support from the University of Hertfordshire in motivating and challenging him to achieve good GCSE results and gain a place in Bushey Meads Sixth Form where he is now studying 4 AS subjects and doing well.

Student D is a year 11 student in receipt of Free School Meals. He in particular has received sustained support from the PP funding. Student D has SEN needs for learning and requires intervention support for behaviour, along with support for personal family issues. This student has received funding to attend educational trips and funds towards new school uniform. He also receives one-to-one Maths support to enable him to develop confidence and ability in this subject. He also receives one-to-one behaviour intervention. This has given him the opportunity to reflect on his behaviour and work through his difficulties. Student D acknowledges his problems and is now, through the Pupil Premium funding, able to attend an external course to suit his career path and receives family support, working with a specialist adviser.

Student E is a LAC student and has excellent attendance even though this student has educational and behaviour issues and is on the SEN register for support. Being a LAC student the Key Stage team and SEN depts have regular PEP meetings to work together in organising and planning this students career path and emotional support. This student has received Pupil Premium funding to attend an external work related learning course to develop his skills and give him a suggested career pathway. With the extra one-to-one Maths support he has achieved an improved target by one grade in this subject, much to his credit. He has recently received a laptop along with specialist software, to enable him to develop his skills in preparation for his college course next year.

Student F is a highly able student on Free School Meals and is registered as Gifted and Talented. At the end of the academic year in Year 10 he achieved good grades which he is building upon in Year 11 with excellent GCSE predictions. Through the Pupil Premium he received GCSE intervention for Modern Foreign Languages and Maths which are his weakest subjects. Further intervention strategies will be offered again in year 11 to ensure this student achieves his potential.
