Pupil Premium, Sports Premium and Covid Catch Up Funding

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Catch-up Premium For The Financial Year Beginning 1 April 2020

 

The Secretary of State for Education is providing financial assistance to local authorities for their maintained schools and for pupils that local authorities place in independent special settings, in the form of the coronavirus (COVID-19) catch-up premium for the financial year beginning 1 April 2020.

 

This funding is to support pupils on their return to school in Autumn 2020 and throughout the year. The Senior Management Team and teaching staff have identified areas where progress has been impacted by children’s continued absence from school during the lockdown period. The key areas in children’s learning which were affected were Reading, Scientific Enquiry and children’s Social, Emotional Mental Health.  The funding will therefore be used to support children in these areas.

Pupil Premium Statement

2020/21

 

Background to Pupil Premium

 

Pupil Premium has been introduced by the government in order to give all children the opportunity to succeed in education.  This has been done in the form of a grant which has been given to schools for children eligible for Free School Meals and those children who

  • Has been looked after for 1 day or more
  • Has been adopted from care
  • Has left care under a special guardianship order, a residence order or a child arrangements order

A premium has also been introduced for children whose parents serve in the armed forces.

 

Barriers to educational achievement

 

The pupils who attend Fortuna school have previously had negative experiences of education and are therefore switched off to learning. They have low self esteem and self- worth, not seeing themselves as learners. Our children need a lot of support to develop their social and emotional skills which allow them to access the learning environment and curriculum.

 

2020/21

 

At Fortuna School the Pupil Premium for the 2020/21 financial year is £62,000 for LAC children, £52,455 for FSM children and £3,896 for Forces children. £33,500 to support post LAC pupils. We also receive £1,311 for universal free school meals. This academic year the money is being used to support pupils through:  

 

  • Staff training to develop staff knowledge and understanding
  • Staff training to understand and identify attachment styles and how to support the pupils
  • Educational consultant to prepare, chair and support pupils and their families through the EHC review process.
  • Teaching Assistant to provide support for pupils behaviour intervention plans
  • 8 individual pupils to receive play therapy
  • Theraputic story telling
  • Individual Parent/Carer support from play therapist
  • Fruit and vegetables to enhance the pupils healthy diet and lifestyle
  • To provide pupils with breakfast on a daily basis to enable them to start the day in a positive manner
  • Transport costs to enable pupils to attend After School Clubs, enhancing they’re social developemnt and experiences through additional activities
  • To provide pupils with Birthday and Christmas presents to develop sense of self worth
  • Provide pupils with home/school uniform such as book bags, sunhats etc

 

When the results of assessments, including Physical Intervention data, are received during the summer term we will be able to evaluate the impact of these measures.
