Pupil Premium Information

Pupil Premium Plan 2020-2021

Statement


At Haringey Learning Partnership, our underlying principle is that we should enable all young people to make progress and reach their potential. We know that good teaching, will improve the attainment of our most vulnerable students, and as an organisation, we invest heavily in this. Our CPD (Continuing Professional Development) program provides on-going training opportunities for all staff to enable them to create high quality and supportive learning environments for all groups of students.

Using the Pupil Premium

                             
The Pupil Premium is an additional funding source allocated to schools specifically to support disadvantaged students. Schools have the freedom to spend this allocation in a way they think will best support raising the achievement of students who have been in receipt of free school meals (FSM) within the last six years. Additionally, Pupil Premium Plus (PP+) is for students who are or have previously been Children Looked After (CLAs).
The organisation receives this as additional ‘ring-fenced’ funding for these students. To be eligible for this PP+ funding. These students need to have been looked after continuously by the local authority for more than six months. The guidelines now state that Children Looked After and children adopted from care, on a special guardianship or child arrangements order are now eligible for PP+ funding (Post CLA).
Haringey Learning Partnership is proud of our diverse and inclusive culture, reflecting our local community. Our strategy for use of pupil funding responds to a wide range of risk factors and recognises the importance of quality teaching and learning alongside outstanding pastoral support to raise achievement and engagement in learning. With this in mind, we adopt a multi-strand approach to secure positive outcomes for all our students including those deemed disadvantaged.
The foci around which we deploy Pupil Premium funding are:
1.     Raising progress and achievement
2.     Improving attendance and punctuality
3.     Providing additional learning support and therapeutic intervention
4.     Strengthening parent and carer engagement
5.     Raising aspirations – including quality careers advice and guidance and reducing risk of becoming NEETs
6.     Building social capital and enhancing social mobility through a range of enrichment activities
 2.0 Income
The total amount of Pupil Premium funding received by Haringey Learning Partnership for 2020/21 is £28,491. This figure includes our Year 7 Catch Up funding and CLA/Pre-CLA fund.
 Published school performance tables that clearly show the attainment of Disadvantaged (PP) and CLA students compared to their peers. At Haringey Learning Partnership, the usual cycle of data collection and the monitoring of the cohort’s attainment will be used to inform student progress and enable the early identification of need and impact of interventions.
Scrutiny of whether schools are using their Pupil Premium funding effectively is an integral part of the new Ofsted Common Inspection Framework (CIF). Ofsted will examine the performance of pupils in receipt of pupil premium funding to ensure that any performance gaps are closing.

2.2 How the Pupil Premium has been used at Haringey Learning Partnership?


The DfE has stated the following: 
“Schools, Head teachers and teachers will decide how to use the Pupil Premium allocation, as they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for individual students”.
At Haringey Learning Partnership, we have a sophisticated system to track and assess student progress and this allows us to ensure that any interventions will be tailored to the individual needs of a student. These systems of tracking are applied to all students so that we can identify areas of underperformance and target intervention appropriately. 
Where it is evident that despite our focus on high quality classroom teaching, those students still require further interventions, this is carefully managed using strategies that the senior team closely monitor the impact of interventions so that any progress gaps can be addressed.
Senior leaders run academic monitoring processes for all year groups following each assessment point. Students who have been highlighted as underachieving in a significant number of subjects are given extra support to ensure they have every possible chance of success through a range of interventions including individual mentoring.
