2. Details of how we intend to spend the allocation. Many of the aspects of our school are tailored to meeting the needs of Service Children.  Below are listed the most explicit examples of how the money is used. However, there are several ways the school does its best to ensure that the children make great progress.  Each individual child’s progress is tracked.  We are currently National Curriculum levels whilst integrating it with a new assessment system where we are identifying children as being above/in-line or below national  expectations.  Where children need extra support with their attainment or their progress they are quickly identified and support given. A lot of work goes around helping children settle and making sure their transition both into and away from the school is as smooth as possible.  Several strategies are in place to ensure that this happens. Children who benefit from the Pupil Premium are our top priority for accessing one or other of our range of intervention strategies as outlined below:
SENSS teaching – intensive individual teaching by a specialist trained tutor, usually on a weekly basis for one or two terms. The hours of this have been increased.

£18,000

Family SEAL run by two of our teachers half a day each week, working across the school over the year.

£5,000

Small group daily maths teaching for upper Key stage 2 led by the school teacher am.

£15,000

4. How it made a difference to the attainment of disadvantaged pupils. With regard to impact, the programmes listed above have had a substantial impact. With regard to definite figures it is difficult to isolate specific figures due to the transitory nature of the children. Many of the children who have received support have now moved. That said, there is clear evidence of progress of children being supported through the SENSS programmes, the small group teaching in maths within KS2 has had a dramatic impact alongside the Creative Maths Project. Comparison of the performance of children with pupil premium also needs careful analysis.  Often there will be just 1 or 2 children in the cohort who are not entitled to receive the funding making it difficult for an effective comparison to be made. However the school last year the children made as an overall were roughly attaining in line with national averages.  Considering the percentage of pupil premium children Comment on impact of Pupil Premium from external inspector’s report. "Most children in the school are service children and in receipt of a premium and classified as such.  There is little significant difference between the performances of these pupils, in terms of progress, over time.  There are effective strategies in place to quickly assess pupils and implement interventions to meet individual needs.  The school has experienced teachers and assistants skilled at setting new pupils and addressing their learning, social and emotional needs.  The school has evidence that its provision can raise the attainment and impact on the progress of pupils, often from low prior attainment." Primary School Sports Funding At Downlands, we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children. Our Primary School Sport’s Funding will enable us to continue and extend our provision through employing additional sports professionals, entering into more competitive sports competitions and training our staff to deliver in-house quality PE sessions. What is the Sports Premium? The government is providing funding of over £450 million for the academic years 2013/14, 2014/15 and 2015/16 to provide new and substantial primary school funding. The funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.  Each school (of our approximate size) will receive £8,000 plus an extra £5 per pupil each year for these years – here at Downlands Primary School that will mean around £9,300 a year.  The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools. Possible uses of the funding include: Hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE
  • New or additional Change4Life sport clubs
  • Paying for professional development opportunities in PE/sport
  • Providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/sport
  • Running sport competitions, or increasing participation in the school games
  • Buying quality assured professional development modules or material for PE/sport
  • Providing places for pupils on after school sport clubs and residential visits

  1. How it made a difference?
Downlands has provided a wide variety of support. Across the Blandford Schools' Network we have had several successes.  We are offering a wider range of clubs for children and these are well attended. Through the use of specialist coaches staff confidence in the teaching of PE has been increased. Additional resources have been purchased increasing the range of sport the school is able to offer as part of the curriculum. Playground resources have encouraged activity during playtimes. Swimming is offered across the whole school with the exception of children within the Foundation Stage. There is a small contribution made by parents, but this is subsidised through the use of the Sports Premium.  All children have experienced a series of swimming lessons and developed their skills.  This has provided an important opportunity that is a life-skill and could be potentially missed when moving from school to school.  There is some anecdotal evidence of this, encouraging parents to take their own children swimming. The range and quality of sporting events attended by the school remains high. Some TAs who didn't before are now running clubs including dance and handball.  Free transport to fixtures has encouraged children to attend who may otherwise not have done so. Downlands School has taken part in almost all of the events organised by the Blandford Schools' Network Coordinator. This subscription has enabled our children to experience several events.  These include Quadkids Athletics, tag rugby, football festivals, cricket, swimming gala, KS1 Multi-Sports Day, netball, hockey and a Gym festival. We have once again had some real success in 15/16 in our sporting tournaments. Our tag-rugby team reached the North Dorset finals and qualified for the Dorset Schools' Final.  Our football team won the Network league last year and are currently 2nd.  Our netball team were also league winners.
