Pupil Premium Statement
Cleaswell Hill School are aware of the latest DfE guidance on Pupil Premium (October 2019)and have utilised the recommended format for recording information on effective use of funding to raise attainment.
Attainment within Cleaswell Hill School is not an appropriate benchmark as none of our pupils can be compared with national standards data on achievement and progress against norms.
We use a data tracking system developed for SEND provisions to robustly quantify progress and achievement from a baseline.
As recommended, our approach, reinforced by research from the EEF, is tiered, and prioritises improvements in the quality of teaching, including supporting pupils’ access to learning, which is integral to whole school policy.
We know that the utilisation of the PPG will benefit the wider groupings in school, specifically raising the quality of interventions by TAs and teachers in supporting best outcomes.
As this is Cleaswell’s first external PP Review we have decided, with advice from the Reviewer and for reasons of best practice, to provide an annual statement, which can be closely monitored by School Leaders including Governors.
Governors have opted to use this presentation as it provides information on expected impact and outcomes, which will support robust evaluation leading to the identification of subsequent years expenditure.
In 2020, the school will present a 3 year strategy linked to a whole school approach to raising achievement.
How we measure the impact of the funding
All of this information, together with termly pupil progress data and reports from pupils’ Annual Review meetings, show that the strategies and interventions made possible with Pupil Premium funding are having a positive impact on pupil achievement.
How we monitor impact and provide feedback
School reports on Pupil Premium expenditure and our Pupil Premium Strategy (2019) annually to Governors in the Autumn term.
