3Pupil Premium Pupil premium: the facts: Introduced in 2011. Awarded to schools – not individual families or children!Children who are looked after by the Local Authority including for the first time children who have been adopted from care or leave care under a special guardianship or residence order. £1900 per year.Children who have been eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (also known as Ever 6 FSM). £1300 per year.Children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces. £300 per year.
4It is for schools to decide how the pupil premium allocated to their school is spent. Schools will be held accountable for their use of the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families and the impact this has on educational attainment.Schools must publish their plans for their use of Pupil Premium and the effect it has on ‘narrowing the gap’ on their website.Ofsted 2013“The school makes very good use of its pupil premium funding.”
5Pupil Premium at Locking Stumps is used to provide: additional teacher and TA to deliver early intervention with small groupsexperienced and skilled Special Educational Needs Co-ordinatoradditional teacher to provide 1:4 intensive preparation for SATsEducational Welfare OfficerFamily Support workerEmotional Health workerfinancial support for residential and educational visitsadditional resources where required
6Free School Meals for KS1 From September 2014 all children from YR – Y2 are entitled to a Free School Meal.It is vital that parents still apply for Free School Meal entitlement as the school receives funding based on numbers.Reception starters have received a Pupil Premium funding form with their offer letters.Y1/2 can complete a Pupil Premium Funding form if they have not previously done so and they think they are entitled.KS2 will require a Free School Meals registration form.
7At Locking Stumps:Parents will receive menus as previouslyParents may still choose to send children with a packed lunchNo option for schools to provide sandwiches – ‘The DfE has advised that they do not believe that it is possible to meet theirexpected food standards by eating the food typically contained within a lunch box.’
8National Curriculum 2014 English From September 2014 we will be teaching from a new National Curriculum.EnglishStronger emphasis on vocabulary development, grammar, punctuation and spelling (for example, the use of commas and apostrophes will be taught in KS1)•Handwriting – not currently assessed under the national curriculum – is expected to be fluent, legible and speedy•Spoken English has a greater emphasis, with children to be taught debating and presenting skills
9National Curriculum 2014 Maths •Five-year-olds will be expected to learn to count up to 100 (compared to 20 under the current curriculum) and learn number bonds to 20 (currently up to 10)•Simple fractions (1/4 and 1/2) will be taught from KS1, and by the end of primary school, children should be able to convert decimal fractions to simple fractions (e.g = 3/8)•By the age of nine, children will be expected to know times tables up to 12x12 (currently 10x10 by the end of primary school)•Calculators will not be introduced until near the end of KS2, to encourage mental arithmetic
10MATHS From next half term we will be removing Maths sets. Rationale: Age 5 – very early given the drastically differing rate of development of childrenRestrictions on curriculum and timetableLoss of confidenceChildren have strengths within the subjectProvide challenge for all our children – no ‘ceiling’ on learning.Parents’ evening concernsOpportunities to provide support and challenge throughout the day
11•Evolution will be taught in primary schools for the first time National Curriculum 2014Science••Strong focus on scientific knowledge and language, rather than understanding the nature and methods of science in abstract terms•Evolution will be taught in primary schools for the first time•Non-core subjects like caring for animals will be replaced by topics like the human circulatory system
12National Curriculum 2014 ICT •Computing replaces Information and Communication Technology (ICT), with a greater focus on programming rather than on operating programs•From age five, children will learn to write and test simple programs, and to organise, store and retrieve data•From seven, they will be taught to understand computer networks, including the internet•Internet safety – currently only taught from – will be taught in primary schools
13National Curriculum 2014 Languages Other subjects ••Currently not statutory, a modern foreign language or ancient language (Latin or Greek) will be mandatory in KS2•Children will be expected to master basic grammar and accurate pronunciation and to converse, present, read and write in the languageOther subjectsChanges to Foundation Subjects are mainly in content. However we are bound by age related expectations. Children will be following the Programme of Study for their year groups. Those children requiring challenge will be developing a wider and deeper understanding of the subjects taught – not just more!

20Life without levels Formal assessments will be as follows: ‘Assessment levels have now been removed and will not be replaced. Schools have the freedom to develop their own means of assessing pupils’ progress towards end of key stage expectations.’ DfE January 2014.Formal assessments will be as follows:a short reception baseline that will sit within the assessments that teachers make of children during receptiona phonics check near the end of year 1a teacher assessment at the end of key stage 1 in mathematics; reading; and, writing, informed by pupils’ scores in externally-set but internally-marked tests (writing will be partly informed by the grammar, punctuation and spelling test); and teacher assessment of speaking and listening and sciencenational tests at the end of key stage 2 in: mathematics; reading; grammar, punctuation and spelling; and a teacher assessment of mathematics, reading, writing, and science.
21We are currently working with our cluster schools to adapt our current assessment system so that it meets the needs of our children and parents and enables us to track children’s progress.‘Schools need to be able to demonstrate how well their students have learned and what progress they are making, ensuring that they are on track to meet expectations and taking action if individual pupils are falling behind.’New National Curriculum has specific age related expectations – From 2015 parents will be informed whether their children meet these expectations; are above or below.
22New SEND Code of Practice Focusing on young people from 0 – 25Clearer focus on views of parents, children and young people and their participation in decision makingGuidance on joint planning between education, health services and social careEducation Health and Care plans to replace statementsFocus on providing support so that young people with special needs have a successful transition to adulthood.Local Authorities must provide a ‘Local Offer’ setting out, in one place, all available services and provision
23At Locking Stumps we:Provide quality teaching first!Regular assessment identifies inadequate progressAppropriate interventionThen:AssessPlan (may involve specialist and other agencies)DoReviewEducation, Health and Care Plans
24School Places:Rising birth-rate in the area means not enough school places for children between the 3 schools in the area.Current admission number is 45Due to demand, Locking Stumps will be taking in 60 children in September Local Authority increasing our admission number to 60.Impact – extension to school – to be completed July 2015 for opening in September 2015 when new classrooms will be required.Rolling programme but school will eventually return to single age group classes.
25“The LA intends to support expansion of the school to two forms of entry with the appropriate level of capital investment. That staff, pupils and other partners will be involved in the design development process to ensure that the school has the benefit of facilities that will enhance the learning experience of all the children at the school. Although an architect has not been appointed yet this will be happening very soon as the intention is to have new facilities available for September 2015.”
26Challenging yet exciting times However, please be assured that we are extremely confident that the education of children at Locking Stumps will continue to go from strength to strength.Our talented staff and dedicated team of Governors are certainly committed to making this happen.We firmly believe that this is a superb school and will continue to be so!
