2 Pupil Premium Expenditure

These funds are used in a variety of ways to provide additional support and interventions for all pupils, but with a particular focus on those in receipt of 'Free School Meals' (FSM) and 'Looked After Children' (LAC).  Our aim is to target these funds to ensure the continued progress and academic achievement of all vulnerable groups of children within our school.

 

Specific examples of the support and interventions that took place during 2016/17 include: -

  • Toe by Toe daily reading support programme - providing 1:1 support for identified children
  • Daily reading - led by trained adults to provide 1:1 support in reading for vulnerable children identified as underachieving
  • Writing booster groups - led by Teachers and Teaching Assistants to develop literacy skills within key stage 1 and 2
  • Extra adult support in all classrooms to provide additional support for developing literacy skills through guided reading and writing groups and during maths lessons
  • Additional adult support for children within the classrooms to provide 1:1 or small group support for identified groups of children to narrow the attainment gap
  • Staff run social groups 1:4 and 1:1, additional professional counselling for children experiencing emotional or social trauma to reduce impact on academic progress
  • Some curriculum trips subsidised or part subsidised to prevent social exclusion
  • Providing enrichment through funding holiday play schemes and trips
  • Free Breakfast club.
  • Subsidies towards uniform.

3 Intentions for the academic year 2017/18:

We intend to continue with the initiatives that have had the most impact as well as trialing new interventions this academic year as detailed below:

  • Funding additional teachers to work in class supporting learning.
  • Providing a large variety of after-school clubs, e.g. table tennis, rugby, football, netball, multi-skills sport, art and creativity, forest school and gardening, mini-youth games and IT.
  • Provision of maths games
  • Subsidised music lessons for example keyboard.

We will continually review the support and interventions we provide and add or remove initiatives to ensure continued success, raised aspirations and to limit social exclusion.

4 Impact on educational attainment on vulnerable pupils for whom we receive Pupil Premium funding:

"Disadvantaged pupils makes accelerated progress that is similar to that of other pupils at the school. Any gaps in their attainment are slight and closing rapidly." (Ofsted, March 2015.)

"The school includes disadvantaged pupils, disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs, exceptionally well in all activities, enabling them to be very successful." (Ofsted, March 2015)
