Nutfield Church Primary School – Pupil Premium
The Pupil Premium is part of the Social Mobility Strategy that aims to tackle unfairness at every stage of life with specific measures to improve social mobility from the foundation years to school and adulthood. A key component of the Social Mobility Strategy is “Closing the Gap” along with raising standards in all schools and raising aspirations for all children.
The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools based on the numbers of pupils who are known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM), and also includes pupils who have been eligible for FSM at any point within the previous six years. This is to enable additional funds to be available for children from low income families, who achieve less well, a better start in life, and to make an impact on attainment for those pupils, particularly in English and Mathematics. Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months.
Pupil Premium allocation for the academic year 2017-18 was £37,060
Pupil Premium allocation for the academic year 2016-17 was £31,853
Pupil Premium allocation for the academic year 2015/16 was £32,153

Use of Pupil Premium
This money has been used towards a number of school initiatives that were specifically designed to support all pupils, but in particular pupils from deprived backgrounds, as follows:
We employ Mrs L Bainbridge to provide extra support in the following roles –
- Pupil Progress Support Assistant to provide focused support for identified pupils in order to “close the gap”. Mrs Bainbridge works closely with the SEND and Inclusion Team, led by Miss Morris, our Deputy Headteacher to create opportunities for accelerated learning, including working 1:1 and also with small groups of pupils.
- Learning Mentor Her tasks include developing, agreeing and implementing time bound actions plans for identified pupils, one to one mentoring with pupils needing support, identify and respond to barriers to learning in relation to behaviour, motivation and academic achievement by providing access to learning support and individual group programmes aimed at supporting pupils to learn more effectively, developing and maintaining contact with parents to keep them informed of the children’s needs and progress.
- Home School Link Worker We support not only our pupils but the whole family. Mrs L Bainbridge’s tasks are to work with families, children and the school to provide early intervention, signposting, support and guidance in times of change and stress to enable improved attendance and behaviour by reducing family and environmental barriers to learning. Our HSLW helps to improve attendance and late arrivals which cause barriers to learning by monitoring and offering assistance, to listen and offer support on problems and issues using counselling skills and to give any child with difficulties a forum to talk about concerns in a confidential and non judgemental manner. Our HSLW made a successful application for grants for two pupils on FSM towards a residential educational trip.
- Staff Training Including “Write Away Together” a structured programme to support the development of writing skills. This training focuses on how to use feedback to improve writing with the aim to help pupils understand how they can improve their work at text, structure and word level and to embed strategies that will improve children’s independent writing. Also a reading intervention programme that is targeted at struggling readers in Years 2 to 4 who are not on track to achieve appropriate levels for their age. High quality training and a motivational adventure books helps teachers and teaching assistants in supporting children to build their vocabulary and comprehension skills.
- One to One Tuition This is run after school by a Higher Level Teaching Assistant who is known to our children. Specifically identified children are given the opportunity to benefit from one to one tuition to help them attain their potential in maths and literacy. The sessions are run after school so that the children do not miss out on other activities during the school day.
- Small Group Tuition Classes are run for pupils with special educational needs to specifically target areas that require additional input to ensure that the children achieve their full potential.
- Tandridge Education Partnership (TEP). We are a member of the TEP that provides access to support, guidance and advice for our pupils and families, and staff including our free network meetings and support for our Learning Mentor and Home School Link Worker and for our Inclusion Leader, all aimed at supporting pupils, in particular deprived pupils.
- A number of lunchtime and after school clubs run by school staff for our pupils
- Peer to peer support where pupils share and pass on knowledge and skills
- Encouraging parental involvement in school by running IT sessions for parents to enable them to support their children, inviting parents in to school to spend sessions in class with their children
In addition, part of the funding has been spent specifically on certain children eligible for Pupil Premium funding including:
- School Uniform, including P.E. Kit and school shoes To help with inclusion
- After School Clubs run by outside providers. As well as after school clubs run by school staff, we also offer clubs run by outside providers who make a charge. Fees have been paid to enable some pupils to participate in rugby club and tennis club
- Turtles Club for Wrap Around Care Fees paid to enable a child to be part of an extended family and have the opportunity to play with other children outside the normal school day
- Residential School Trips Our KS2 children are given the opportunity to go away overnight starting with a sleep over in Year 3 and through to a 3 or 4 night residential trip in Yr 6; these residential trips are designed to enhance the curriculum. Pupil Premium funding ensures that all children are able to participate and experience new and exciting challenges that would otherwise not be affordable for them to enjoy.
Nutfield Church (C of E) Primary School continually tracks the progress of all our pupils to enable early identification of pupils that are not performing to their full potential and for strategies to be put in place to correct this.
