Pupil Premium Statement
Sybourn Primary School will receive £205,200 in Pupil Premium funding for the period September 2014 to August 2015 as a direct grant from the Department For Education to help meet the educational needs of pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds, particularly those who receive Free School Meals (FSM).

The most recent data for 2014 (Raiseonline) (unvalidated) shows that approximately 35% of pupils at Sybourn are eligible to receive free school meals.

Listed on the right are details of how this money has been spent and what it contributes to.


 

Allocation of Pupil Premium

  • We have a large team of dedicated support staff who run intervention groups in reading, writing and mathematics for pupils not making expected progress or reaching national levels of attainment.
  • We have a team of learning mentors working with individuals and groups of pupils with specialist needs, often linked to underachievement, low self-esteem or behaviour problems.
  • We run a specific Saturday school programme for Year 6 pupils in the Spring term.
  • We offer a wide range of after-school clubs including Breakfast and Tea Time Clubs
  • Financial support is made available to students from families whose circumstances are particularly challenging so that they can participate fully in the range of school activities and trips.
  • A significant investment in ICT, achievement rewards, literacy and numeracy resource funding.
  

 

Impact of Pupil Premium Spends 2013-14

Phonics: While we recognise that the proportions of children achieving the expected levels of development in phonics remains too low, the attainment gap between those for whom the Pupil Premium provides support and their peers is narrower than the national picture.

Key Stage 1: While attainment remains significantly below national level at the end of KS1, attainment for those for whom the Pupil Premium provides support are broadly in line with their peers nationally and the attainment gap is significantly closer than the national picture.

Key Stage 2: While attainment remains too low at the end of KS2, the following statements show the impact of the Pupil Premium spends for 2013-14.

Writing: At the end of Key Stage 2, the percentage of pupils achieving the expected progress in writing for whom the Pupil Premium provides support is higher than the national picture (100%) for those who do not receive the Pupil Premium.

The proportions of children meeting the expected levels of progress for whom the Pupil Premium provides support is above national figures. The proportions of children exceeding the expected levels of progress for whom the Pupil Premium provides support is high when compared with national figures.

Sport Premium


What is the Sport Premium?

The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2014-15  and 2015-16 to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding. This is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.

The funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools. 

Purpose of the funding
Schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this. Possible uses for the funding include:

  • hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE
  • new or additional Change4Life sport clubs
  • paying for professional development opportunities in PE/sport
  • providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/sport
  • running sport competitions, or increasing participation in the school games
  • buying quality-assured professional development modules or materials for PE/sport
  • providing places for pupils on after-school sport clubs and holiday clubs.

How will the funding be spent and who will benefit?
The Governors agree that the money must be used so that:
all children benefit regardless of sporting ability; the most able children are given the opportunity to compete in advanced tournaments; and staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development.


  Providing places for pupils for after school sports clubs
Our school now offers a range of before- and after-school clubs accessed by children from Key Stages 1 and 2. From September 2014, for the Autumn term, we are offering football, netball and Digi clubs. Further clubs will be offered in the Spring and Summer terms.

Specialist PE teacher
Within the current staffing structure, there is a specialist PE teacher from September 2014. This is to ensure that there are high-quality PE lessons and sporting opportunities available for all children. Close links have already been developed with the other specialists within the Lion Academy Trust. This member of staff is also responsible for supporting and training staff to ensure that there is consistency and quality PE and sporting opportunities across the school.

Increasing participation in school sport and providing opportunities for children to compete
The children have access to a wide range of opportunities within the school for sport. In the Autumn term, the following opportunities have been given:

  • On-going trampolining and swimming at Lammas and Forest schools respectively. 
  • An on-going football tournament for both boys and girls for Years 5 and 6 as part of the South Area partnership.
  • Participation in the Essex County Schools competition, also held at Leyton Orient.
  • Indoor athletics for Year 6 and 2. 
  • Cross-country for Year 2.
  • Basketball at Kelmscott for Year 5 and a basketball tournament for Year 6. 
  • Year 11 sports leaders from Lammas School coming  every Monday to deliver games activities to Year 4 pupils.

Also, we have joined the South Area Partnership for sport, which gives the school access to a wide variety of competitions within the borough.


LOPASS: We are currently a member of the Leyton Orient Partnership of Associated Schools Scheme (LOPASS). This has been designed to help improve the educational attainment and life skills of young people in our community as well as offering player visits, match-day occasions, stadium tours and inter-school competitions.
