Pupil Premium Strategy 2019-20

Background InformationThe Pupil Premium, which is in addition to main school funding, was introduced in April 2011. It is allocated to pupils from low-income families, currently known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM), for pupils in care who have been continuously looked after for six months and for pupils of Service families.
In 2014, schools received additional funding through Pupil Premium Plus, for children adopted from care. Schools are free to decide how to best use the premium but it should be spent in order to improve educational attainment of children from less privileged backgrounds. To find out more information about eligibility for Free School Meals, please visit the North Tyneside website.
School ContextPupils eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) at Whitley Lodge First School are well below the National Average.

How impact is measured.Due to the low number of pupils eligible for pupil premium funding in each year group, impact is measured on an individual basis and recorded in individual case study, using the school assessment system. This system of assessment is in line with the North Tyneside assessment tracking system. Attainment is identified against the expectations set out in the 2014 primary Curriculum, using the following terms:

Developing – Working below the curriculum expectations Secure – Working at the expectations outlined,

Exceeding – Working above the curriculum expectations Mastery – Working significantly above the curriculum expectations.

In addition, attainment at the end of Year Two is identified using the National Standard of assessment for Key Stage One pupils.
