Pupil Premium Allocation


St Ebbe’s Pupil Premium Overview/Introduction


At St Ebbe’s, we have high aspirations and ambitions for all of our children.

Pupil Premium funding represents a significant proportion of our budget and this overview alongside our Pupil Premium Strategy Statement outlines how we will ensure it is spent to maximum effect to support children reach their potential.


Desired Outcomes

  • Raised attainment of PP pupils
  • Closing any identified achievement gaps between PP pupils and others in the school
  • Increased engagement of parents with their children’s education and with the school
  • Improved attendance & punctuality
  • Increased opportunities for PP pupils and broader experiences
  • Foster attitudes of being ‘lifelong learners’ with self-belief and high aspirations


Key Principles

Building Belief

We will provide a culture where:

  • Staff believe in ALL children
  • Staff encourage, support and expect ALL children to actively participate by adopting effective strategies e.g.  partner talk
  • Staff support children to develop ‘growth mind-set’ towards learning, and provide opportunities to reflect on their ‘learning journey’


Researching Effective Strategies

We will ensure that:

  • We provide effective CPD to ensure our staff have strong pedagogy to maximise learning opportunities for all children
  • We use research  e.g. Sutton Trust Toolkit, teacher-action research, study groups (e.g. involving class teacher, subject leaders, 1:1 tutors and PP champion)  to support us in determining the strategies that will be most effective in raising pupil attainment & monitor children’s progress
  • All class teachers are involved in detailed analysis of each pupil’s achievement and where strategies identified from research will be most effectively targeted e.g. through pupil progress meetings


Increasing Learning Time

We will maximise the time children have to achieve the desired outcomes through:

  • Improving attendance and punctuality
  • Providing earlier intervention (in KS1 and EYFS)
  • Supporting children’s personal, social and emotional needs
  • Providing opportunities for parents/carers to learn alongside each other


Individualising Support

We will ensure that the additional support we provide is effective by:

  • Looking at the individual needs of each child and identifying their specific barriers to learning; e.g. pupil progress meetings (pupil profiles if they have additional SEND needs)
  • Tailoring interventions to the needs of the child
  • Matching the skills of the support staff to the interventions they provide
  • Ensuring additional support staff/tutors and class teachers communicate regularly (study group)
  • Working with other agencies to bring in additional expertise/opportunities e.g. The Story Museum, Creation Theatre, the local universities


How we will measure the impact of the Pupil Premium Grant:

  • Increase the number of children leaving primary school reaching expectations in reading, writing and maths
  • We aim for the gap in attainment to reduce in each year group, as a result of accelerated progress through timely intervention
  • Pupils are engaged and demonstrate ‘successful learning’ behaviours in all aspects of the curriculum
  • Pupils demonstrate higher level thinking skills in independent learning
  • Children take pride in their work and presentation,  show positive levels of a motivation and aspiration
