Context of school

Enfield Academy is a small primary school serving the locality of New Waltham. The school prides itself on knowing its pupils and their families well. At the core of its ethos is the nurturing of the whole child, enabling each and every child to flourish in a friendly and safe countryside environment. 

There are six classes across the school, with 150 pupils on roll. Twenty-one pupils are eligible for the pupil premium grant in 2016 - 2017.

 

 

Objectives of pupil premium

When making decisions about using the pupil premium it is important to consider the context of the school and the small number of pupils eligible. Common barriers for pupil premium children can be less support at home, lack of confidence, more frequent social and emotional difficulties and attendance and punctuality issues. There may also be complex family situations that prevent children from flourishing. The challenges are varied and there is no ‘one size fits all’.

Our key objective in using the pupil premium grant is to narrow the gap between pupil groups. As a school, we have a good record of ensuring that the pupils make good and often outstanding progress, but levels of attainment for pupil premium children are varied – possibly due to the low numbers involved.

Impact of pupil premium spending 2015- 2016

The school’s evaluation of its own performance is rigorous. Tracking of progress over time for each pupil is thorough and so we can identify any dips and develop strategies and interventions to promote improvement.

  • A wide range of data is used – achievement data, pupils’ work, observations, Enquiry walks
  • Assessment data is collected termly (‘O’ track - class track) 
  • Pupil progress meetings occur half-termly
  • Moderation meetings occur regularly to ensure consistent and accurate assessments
  • Interventions are adapted and changed if they are not working
  • The Leadership team maintains an overview of pupil premium spending
  • The Governing Body receives termly updates about our pupil premium spending

We use Raise Online, Phonics and EYFS formal data, but also track closely attainment and progress at the end of each year and across each term.
