Pupil premium is additional funding received in the school budget from the Government. It is allocated according to the number of children in school from the following three categories:
Children who are eligible for free school meals (FSM)
Looked after children (LAC)
Armed forces children
The pupil premium is a sum of money in the school’s budget. It is allocated according to the number of children who are looked after or eligible for free school meals. It is intended to support schools to provide additional support to specific groups of children who may be underachieving. It is up to the school to decide how this is spent. It will be used by this school to address any underlying inequalities between children eligible by ensuring that funding reaches the pupils who need it the most.
During financial year 2016-17 school received £65,680; the money was targeted as follows:
After school and extra curriculum provision Additional reading support Attendance support Bug Club - reading support Beanstalk – reading support Dyslexia training ECaR teacher
ECaR training for key support staff, new staff and updates for existing staff. Glockenspiel Lessons/ Guitar/ Recorder lessons Nurture provision Parent support Phonics support Resources to support specific children – i.e. extra-large mice for computers, laptops and Ipads Speech and Language Therapy support Swimming lessons Transition support Transport to attend events
These strategies have contributed to the following:-
Raised levels of attendance for FSM pupils. Increased participation in Sport, especially for KS2 children. Increase in participation in Music and other activities – showing increased concentration for majority of Pupil Premium children involved.
Of the 15 Pupil Premium pupils in Year 2:
40% achieved expected or exceeding in Reading 20% achieved expected or exceeding in Writing 27% achieved expected or exceeding in Maths 30% achieved expected or exceeding in Science
For this cohort of children, many of whom have additional needs, progress was seen in many areas, including social and emotional health.
Developments: This year we are continuing to focus on reading but will also target raising attainment in writing and maths. We will continue to assess the needs of all our children and put in appropriate support. We will continue to target the funding as in previous years with the addition of:
A dedicated Pupil Premium Leader Priority on the School Development Plan Age appropriate resources targeting KS2 (Year 3 upwards)
Financial help for residential trips Funded music provision for pupils who show aptitude
Accountability: The Headteacher, Pupil Premium Leader and Leadership team will regularly and rigorously monitor, evaluate and review the strategies we have put in place for Pupil Premium and report to the Governing body in its progress and impact.

attainment in writing - 57% achieve NE2 or above
Improved engagement in the wider curriculum.

Increased engagement with learning and motivation.
Good end of Key Stage results, meaning children are better prepared for the next stage of their education.

PE & Sports Grant
The government is providing additional funding per annum for to improve the provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding – provided jointly by the Departments of Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – has been allocated to primary school head teachers.
This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sports in schools.
Purpose of funding
Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but schools have been given the freedom to choose how they do this. A list of possible uses has been suggested. At Guiseley Primary School we have decided to use the money to:
Provide professional development opportunities for teaching P.E.
Provide a new scheme of work for dance across the school (iMoves Dance)
Provide a new, skills based scheme of work for PE lessons (REAL PE)
Provide support from LCC to support development of PE

iMoves Dance Training for staff
Following the introduction of iMoves last year, teaching staff have received training on how best to use the materials with their children. Because of this training, staff feel more confident when teaching dance, and have become more familiar with the resources online. Staff and pupil feedback has been extremely positive and therefore we will be investing in the scheme again this coming year.
Inclusion of pupils with additional needs in extra-curricular clubs
This year, we have targeted our pupil premium children with sporting clubs such as multi-skills for KS1 and KS2. SEN children and low ability pupils have attended inclusive events at Huddersfield Leisure centre and John Charles Centre for Sport for athletics and goalball.

Y4 and a group of SEN children will also have the opportunity to swim on a weekly basis when building work has been completed.
Widen pupils’ skills and experiences and staff professional development by providing a variety of curriculum based PE sessions led by external agencies.
This year, we had the following coaches supporting staff with their own confidence, knowledge and understanding of the different skills and progression across a variety of sports:
Fisical Sports Coaching
Menston Cricket club
Training for new staff in REAL PE has increased levels of confidence when delivering the REAL PE materials.
Training on the iMoves dance resources was also well-received and enabled staff to teach lessons with more confidence.
Developing the grounds
This year, we have been exploring ways to develop the school grounds to enable more children including pupil premium and SEN children space in which to be active. We have developed a working party, which includes the PE leader, School Business Manager, Head and Deputy as well as a number of parents with experience of similar projects. We believe that developing the grounds as we grow into a through primary school is extremely important to ensure children have a safe space to play and be active.
