Family Liaison Officer

Our Family Liaison officer is currently working with 20 families to different degrees. From these families, 53% of children who are indirectly or directly being supported through this are accessing FSM. Of the 20 families, 7 have led to onward referrals. The vast majority of families working with the family liaison officer are where the parent is receiving support and advice. However, a number of children are receiving support from CXK.

Brought in Service

We have brought into CXK which is a service providing direct 1:1 support for some pupils who need a variety of different support ranging from aspects such as self-esteem building to anger management strategies. Of the pupils who have accessed this so far, 72% are entitled to pupil Premium funding.

Achievement for All

The Achievement for All (AFA) programme was implemented last year and we hope to further develop and improve it this year.

Year 2 Children AFA Progress before AFA 2012-2013 Progress since AFA 2013-2014
Reading 4.6 5.1
Writing 4.3 3.8 (Progress in writing remains a focus, especially for those children with SEN. 4/6 children achieved 4.0 points + progress in writing)
Maths 3.4 5.3

Year 3 Children AFA Progress before AFA 2012-2013 Progress since AFA 2013-2014
Reading 4.6 6.0
Writing 2.6 5.8
Maths 6.2 5.7

In 2014 -2015, 4 classes will be currently involved in the programme, leading to five classes once Foundation children have fully settled into school. Targets need to continue to be developed to be precise. Structured conversations with parents will continue and wider opportunities will be explored further.

FSM Results

Phonic Screening

In Year 1 70% of those children entitled to Pupil premium Funding met the required standard in the phonic screening check. This compares with 80% of non –pupil premium children .

At the end of KS1, non- FSM pupils are attaining higher than those entitled to FSM and the gaps between attainment of these two groups is slightly higher than the national gap. FSM pupils in writing attain higher than FSM pupils nationally.
In KS2 FSM pupils attain lower in Writing and maths and FSM pupils nationally but higher than FSM pupils nationally in Reading. The gap in maths between FSM and Non-FSM pupils in our school is less than the national gap.
Attainment at the end of KS2 at level 5 shows that FSM pupils achieve the same as FSM pupils nationally in Writing, higher than nationally in Reading but lower than FSM pupils nationally in mathematics.

The average point score gap has closed since last year but all pupils attained lower in mathematics.

The table shows a dip this year in Writing. Although APS has generally improved for disadvantaged pupils (not writing) a gap still remains between disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged pupils.

Key Stage 1

In Key Stage 1 disadvantaged pupils are achieving better than last year but the gap has not closed as other pupils are also achieving better than the previous year at level 2.In Reading and Writing the gap has increased but not in mathematics.

The table shows that the gap is not currently closing and this needs to be a focus when raising achievement across KS1.

EYFS

Only 3 pupils were eligible for FSM. 66% achieved a good level of development. This means one child did not although additional educational needs were also a factor.
