1 1. Introduction Southend Virtual School Looked After Children s Pupil Premium Policy 2015/16 The Pupil Premium Grant for looked after children is available for the financial year in order to raise the attainment of looked after children and support closing of the achievement and attainment gaps with their peers. Looked after children, nationally, have lower educational outcomes than all children. There exists a wide gap between their attainment and that of all children. Results for 2014 in Southend-on-sea show that at Key Stage 1, looked after children achieve broadly in line with their peers. However the gap at the end of Key Stage 2 for children achieving Level 4+ in Reading, Writing and Mathematics is -18%. The overall percentage of young people in care achieving 5 A*-C GCSEs including English and Mathematics increased to 20% however, the gap against all children nationally is -37%. As a borough we recognize that outcomes for our looked after children and young people are poor and that this needs to be addressed in order to improve their life chances. This policy and the arrangements for the Pupil Premium for looked after children from April 2015 are informed by the following key Department for Education (DfE ) documents 1. Pupil Premium Grant 2015 to 2016 Conditions of Grant 2. Promoting the educational achievement of looked after children July Pupil premium and the role of the Virtual School Head Frequently asked questions Throughout this policy, the pupil premium for looked after children will be referred to as Pupil Premium Plus to distinguish it from other forms of pupil premium allocations. The main changes are as follows:- Children and young people will be eligible from the first day they enter care, Local Authorities through the Virtual School Headteacher, continue to be responsible for distributing the Pupil Premium Plus payments for looked after children to schools and academies. In addition, Virtual School Headteachers are responsible for making sure there are effective arrangements in place for allocating Pupil Premium Plus funding to benefit children looked after by their authority. The overall grant allocated to each LA will be calculated on a per pupil basis. However, it does not have to be distributed on a per pupil basis, given that children and young people in care have differing levels of need at different stages whilst in care The grant must be managed by the Virtual School and used to improve outcomes and narrow the gap as identified in the Personal Education Plan (PEP) in consultation with the Designated Teacher. As a result, PEPs will be monitored even more closely by Designated Teachers, the Virtual School team, social workers, team leaders and Independent Reviewing Officers. Southend Virtual School 2015 Page 1

2 As a result of the above changes, our allocation process will move to a child s needs driven model managed through the completion of high quality PEPs. 2. Pupil Premium Plus Policy 2.1. Overarching principles underpinning our child s needs driven model The Virtual School Headteacher is responsible for the use of Pupil Premium Plus to improve outcomes for all children in our care, wherever they live (approximately 50% of Southend-on-sea looked after children are educated in schools outside of the borough) The funding will be provided according to the needs of the child, on the completion of a high quality PEP, each academic term The grant will not be used to pay for Virtual School management or administration or other Local Authority services Southend-on-sea Borough Council and the Virtual School Headteacher are corporate parents, so the question would this be good enough for my child? is central to making decisions regarding and evaluating the effectiveness of the use of Pupil Premium Plus In view of the variety of needs there may be a significant difference in the amount of Pupil Premium Plus allocated to schools Circumstances in which Pupil Premium Plus will not be provided Pupil Premium Plus will not be used to double fund or replace funding which should already have been allocated to the school to support the child and specifically; To fund services that should be provided via a statement, or EHC plan Other statutory work e.g. statutory assessment or support from health The interventions put in place do not require any funding The school s own funding covers the cost of the interventions The PEP action plan does not meet requirements (Please see PEP criteria, Appendix A) 3. Management and accountability The Headteacher of the Virtual School will be accountable to the Corporate Parenting Group for setting up a transparent and rigorous allocation process and ensuring maximised impact of the grant Personal Education Plans (PEPs) From April 2015 we will not require schools to submit a separate application form for Pupil Premium Plus. The PEP action plan will double up as the application for Pupil Premium Plus funding. However this will be reviewed in the light of practice. Southend Virtual School 2015 Page 2

3 The Pupil Premium Plus will only be provided to meet the needs identified in a high quality action plan in the PEP with clear SMART targets for academic improvement, underpinned by well-targeted support. (Please see SMART targets, Appendix B) The Pupil Premium Plus must be used to improve outcomes for children in the following areas in order of priority: Academic achievement and progress Wider achievement e.g. in an area in which the child is gifted and talented Attendance Inclusion (by reducing internal and external exclusion) Transition into the next key stage and/or a new learning provider Social Skills Mental health which includes overcoming the effects of attachment and developmental trauma, where this affects learning Out of hours activities that support any of the above The PEP will show the baseline data, and the action plan will contain the looked after child s targets for improvement, expected outcomes and cost of support. (Please see example Appendix B) Please note that national and international studies have shown the one to one tuition has a disproportionately positive impact for children in care. To aid transparency and audit we will fund one to one tuition with a qualified teacher at the standard rate of 30 per hour. For learners who start reception or year 7 in September 15, schools can apply for a maximum of 1260 to cover the period September 15 - March 16 unless the needs of the child/young person are such that they need an enhanced package of intervention. For learners in current year 6 or 11, the maximum grant that can be applied for is 630 to cover the period April 15- July 15 unless the needs of the child/young person are such that they need an enhanced package of intervention. For all other learners, schools can apply for a maximum of 1,900 unless the needs of the child/young person are such that they need an enhanced package of intervention. We have redesigned our Personal Education Plans with the new school based PEP being introduced from April 15. We will continue to consult with Designated Teachers and social workers on the design of the new PEPs to ensure it meets the needs of the child, ready for full implementation in September The new guidance suggests that PEPs should take place each term from April 2014, we did not implement this best practice last year however, and it is our expectation that schools will fulfil this guidance from April Allocation of funding to Southend and Out of Borough Schools and recoupment policy The Pupil Premium Grant will be transferred three times a year June, November and February on receipt of a fully completed, high quality PEP in line with the PEP criteria sheet Southend Virtual School 2015 Page 3

4 Subsequent payments will be based on a high quality PEP and fully costed action plan Where there is a need to clarify the amount of funding a school is providing from its own resources, a school may need to provide this evidence before Pupil Premium Plus can be allocated. We will not recoup Pupil Premium Plus where a child moves during the term, unless the termly amount is greater than 630 We reserve the right to recoup the funding if there is evidence that the funding is not being used to address the looked after child s needs 3.3. Allocation of grant to out of borough residential providers and recoupment policy We will provide extra funding to independent providers to a maximum of 1900, this is because residential settings are already funded at a high level by central budgets to meet the needs of each looked after child. The Pupil Premium Grant allocation will have to be approved by the Virtual School Headteacher, on receipt of a high quality PEP and fully costed action plan. We reserve the right to recoup the funding if there is evidence that the funding is not being used to address the looked after child s needs 4. Pupil Premium Plus for Children and Young People from other Local Authorities Different approaches will be adopted by different Local Authorities, as their individual contexts vary so much, in terms of number of school-aged looked after children, the size of Virtual School Team s and any operational budget for the Virtual School Team s Southend schools who have on roll, children and young people in care from other Local Authorities must contact the Headteacher of the relevant Virtual School in order to request their Pupil Premium Plus policy, and allocation. The name and contact details of other Virtual School Headteachers can be requested from the Southend Virtual School Team. 5. Early Years Pupil Premium From April 2015, Virtual School Heads will also be responsible for managing the early years pupil premium (EYPP) for looked after children and its allocation to early years providers. Early years providers are any organisation that offers education for children under the age of 5, including nurseries and childminders. Looked after children become eligible for EYPP when they access and receive free early education from the term after they turn 3 years old. The amount allocated for EYPP is for each eligible looked after child who is in receipt of the full 570 hours of state-funded early education. Southend Virtual School 2015 Page 4

5 Looked after children do not have to be in receipt of the full 570 hours of early education they are entitled to, in order to receive EYPP. 4 year old looked after children, who are in the Reception Year of a school will be entitled to the Pupil Premium Plus allocation of Virtual School Headteachers Responsibilities The identification of the looked after children eligible for EYPP funding that live in the borough of Southend-on-sea Informing social care and the Early Years Team which looked after children are eligible for EYPP The allocation of the EYPP to ensure looked after children benefit from the funding as soon as possible. To work with settings to ensure EYPP meets the needs of each looked after child as identified in a high quality PEP and fully costed action plan. Southend Virtual School 2015 Page 5
