WHAT DID OFSTED SAY?

“Pupils who need extra help are given it quickly and to good effect. Those pupils supported by the pupil premium make rapid progress in all subjects.”

“Pupils who are supported through additional government funding make the same progress as the others and make better progress than similar pupils nationally. Since the previous inspection the school has significantly improved their attainment through the well-considered use of specifically targeted individual and small group support that is well focused on individual needs.”

OUR SHARED VISION and ETHOS:

At Bude Junior our vision for the whole school community is to establish a happy, caring and stimulating ethos where both children and adults can flourish.

To achieve this, each individual child is encouraged to realise his or her very best and is helped to develop the self-discipline, motivation and persistence necessary for learning.

All pupils enjoy the teaching and specialist care of our qualified staff, both academic and pastoral. Our staff are always supportive and focused on encouraging and challenging each and every child to achieve their very best reflecting the School motto, ‘Soaring to New Heights.’ 


THE PUPIL PREMIUM BRIEFLY EXPLAINED

We recognise the research demonstrating that geographical location as well as social and financial disadvantage can be barriers to equality of opportunity and therefore welcome the introduction of the Pupil Premium.  Please see below for for an explanation of how we have responded to the ongoing research of the ‘Education Endowment Foundation’ (EEF).  The Pupil Premium fund was introduced in April 2011 to provide additional support for children who are looked after and those from low income families.

The Government has stated that children currently receiving free school meals are low income families as are children who have received a free school meal at some point during the previous six years.  This is known as the ‘Ever 6’ Pupil Premium.  Children adopted from care receive an enhanced payment known as Pupil Premium Plus.  Ofsted group children receiving the Pupil Premium for whatever reason as being ‘disadvantaged pupils’.

The purpose of Pupil Premium funding is to address inequalities and improve provision for disadvantaged pupils in order to close the educational gap between their achievements and that of their peers.  Research indicates that the gap between disadvantaged pupils and their peers widens through the course of a child’s education.  Support and interventions we put in place to support disadvantaged or vulnerable pupils are ultimately aimed at ensuring that all benefit equally from the wide range of opportunities that are on offer at Bude Junior School.


OUR PUPIL PREMIUM RATIONALE

We believe that interventions should have a positive, meaningful impact for children. It is important to ensure that they provide value for money by tracking the spending of the additional funding and evaluating the effectiveness of measures that have been put in place regarding the improvement of outcomes.

The Bude Junior School Pupil Premium Rationale can be downloaded below.


THE BUDE JUNIOR SCHOOL PUPIL PREMIUM BUDGET

Each Pupil Premium child at Bude Junior School is entitled to a £100 PERSONAL BUDGET for lessons, uniform, trips etc that ‘enhance the child’s education.’  Further details of the Personal Budget, in addition to a Pupil Premium application form, can be found below.


OUR PARENT SUPPORT ADVISOR

As part of the Bude Communities’ Schools’ Trust, we fund a Parent Support Advisor (PSA) from Pupil Premium money so that we are able to offer our pupils and their families advice, help and support pro-actively.

Emma Thomas is our Trust PSA.

THRIVE

We have also recently invested Pupil Premium money to introduce the ‘Thrive’ approach at Bude Junior School.  Thrive identifies areas for social and emotional development within our school population and creates action plans of activities that have been demonstrated to boost pupils’ social and emotional well-being.

Jill Swain is the Lead Teacher for Thrive.

THE EDUCATION ENDOWMENT FOUNDATION

aka ‘THE SUTTON TRUST’

The EEF is an independent grant-making charity dedicated to breaking the link between family income and educational achievement, ensuring that children and young people from all backgrounds can fulfil their potential and make the most of their talents. The EEF fund rigorous evaluations of innovative projects aiming to raise pupils’ attainment. They do this to find out what’s most likely to work effectively and cost-effectively, and to put that into action across the country. 

The EEF regularly update their TEACHING and LEARNING TOOLKIT which is a ‘league table’ of the most positively impactful ideas to narrow the attainment gap between Pupil Premium and non-Pupil premium children.

The most up-to-date research-based EEF Toolkit can be found by clicking on thelogo below:
