Pupil Premium 2015 - 2016

Our Funding for this School Year is £215,000

The school will support the learning of Free School Meal (FSM) pupils and Looked After Children, through a range of teaching and pastoral initiatives 

  • The school will maintain class sizes to support the teaching of English and Maths, enabling us to give more individual support to pupils every day.
  • The funding helps to support a non-teaching Deputy Headteacher to oversee school-wide provision (including pastoral support and parental engagement) for pupils in receipt of Pupil Premium funding. This includes a whole school tracking system which is highly effective in monitoring the progress and attainment of this key group and in focusing intervention where needed.
  • The school employs a full time Learning Mentor to support and work with pupils in and out of the classroom in overcoming specific barriers to learning.
  • A specialist intervention area has been created and maintained to facilitate 1:1 and small group work.
  • The school employs a full time intervention support worker who delivers targeted intervention and additional support for pupils.
  • Whole school training will continue to enthuse and engage learners in an independent learning approach called ‘Learning to Learn’.
  • The school will invest in mobile technologies and increased ICT resources and hardware designed to enhance learning for specific pupils.
  • The Pastoral and Inclusion Team will undertake additional training in areas to support personalised learning and the pastoral provision in school.
  • Financial support will continue so as to develop projects in school, such as a separation and loss project.
  • The school will continue to access additional time with the Education Welfare Service to ensure that any families in receipt of pupil premium funding attend school regularly.
  • The school continues to secure additional Educational Psychologist support to provide an effect differentiated curriculum to SEN pupils in receipt of Pupil Premium funding.
  • The school has provides small group tuition within Year 6 to target specific individuals who were eligible for PP funding.
  • Financial assistance is given to support pupils with the cost of music tuition and extended schools provision. All pupils eligible for Pupil Premium funding in Year 4 learn to play a musical instrument and have the instrument on loan for a year.
