Please click on the link below to view Burbage Primary School’s Pupil Premium Strategy for 2018-19:
If your child does not have Free School Meals, but may be eligible because of your family’s income level, please contact the office (in confidence) to register them. Even if you do not wish them to have the meals, this would mean the school could still claim Pupil Premium funding that may be used to help your child.
OFSTED examined this information during the last inspection and confirmed that our spending of pupil premium demonstrated best value…” Numbers of pupils supported by the pupil premium funding are far too low to make comparisons of their attainment with that of their peers, but they are making good progress”. OFSTED July 2014
The DfE have recently reinforced the need “to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.”
The government set out its definition of British values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy, and these values have been reiterated by the Prime Minister this year. At Burbage Primary School these values are reinforced regularly and in the following ways:
Democracy is actively promoted within the school. Pupils have the opportunity to have their voices heard through our School Council and Pupil questionnaires. The elections of School Councillors are based solely on pupil votes, and each candidate makes a presentation about why they should be chosen before the vote is taken. Each teacher has different ways in which the pupils make their voices heard in their classroom e.g. through Circle Time, P4C, discussions, decisions over classroom rules etc. We try to challenge injustice through our curriculum e.g. we promote Black History Month every year. We focus on people such as Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks during assemblies and Diversity Week.
The Rule of Law:
The importance of laws, whether they be those that govern the class, the school, or the country, are consistently reinforced throughout regular school days and through school assemblies. The children are taught right from wrong. Pupils are taught the value and reasons behind laws; that they govern and protect us, the responsibilities that this involves and the consequences when laws are broken. Visits from authorities such as the Police; Fire Service; Road Safety Officers etc. are regular parts of our calendar and help reinforce this message. There is a clear Code of Conduct for all pupils which is on display in every area of the school. Each family signs the Home School Agreement which includes the Code of Conduct as well as other linking themes. Work in RE on Codes for living in different religions and the significance of the Golden rule for religious and non-religious people allow pupils to discuss the importance of this vale.
Within school, pupils are actively encouraged to make choices, knowing that they are in a safe and supportive environment. As a school we educate and provide boundaries for pupils to make choices safely, through the provision of a safe environment and empowering education. Pupils are encouraged to know, understand and exercise their rights and personal freedoms and advise how to exercise these safely, for example through our E-Safety and PSHE lessons. Whether it be through choice of challenge, of how they record, of participation in our numerous extra-curricular clubs and opportunities, pupils are given the freedom to make choices. All classes work towards incentives such “Class Rewards” where their choices affect outcomes for themselves personally as well as the whole class. We also try to give ownership of learning to the children and promote a personal investigative approach. At break and lunch times the children are allowed to use the outside spaces according to their personal choices. Our shared values in the school promote both staff and children as good role models and we take opportunities to challenge stereotypes whenever the opportunity arises. Opportunities are also taken to explore that with individual liberty and freedom, comes responsibilities to the local community and the wider world.
Part of our school ethos and behaviour policy has revolved around Core Values such as ‘Respect’, and pupils have been part of discussions and assemblies related to what this means and how it is shown. Posters around the school promote respect for others and this is reiterated through our classroom and learning rules, as well as our Rewards and Sanctions Policy. A fundamental aspect in our cross curricular work is to promote understanding and celebration of diversity: The Olympic pictures in the hall reflect this. Children in year 5 can become Buddies whereby they promote respect and friendships. We support events such as “Friendship Week” (Anti Bullying Week).
We promote respect Circle Time and PSCHE lessons. We provide opportunities for children to learn to respect others through our curriculum enrichment activiies e.g. The Our Heritage exhibition and Diversity Week. We support charities where they promote respect and tolerance e.g. Red Nose Day and Children in Need etc.
Respect for those of Different Faiths and Beliefs:
This is achieved through enhancing pupils understanding of their place in a culturally diverse society and by giving them opportunities to experience such diversity. The “Our Heritage Exhibition” gave us an insight into the lives of different families living in Derbyshire. Members of different faiths or religions are encouraged to share their knowledge to enhance learning within classes and the school. We celebrate festivals throughout the year from all the world religions. As part of our RE curriculum we visit places of worship.
