Pupil Premium Allocation for the Current Year

 

This year’s money received £16,440.00

The school spent last year’s allocation for pupil premium pupils in the following ways:

  • Intervention programmes to boost achievement and progress in English and Maths, such as: Reading Recovery (with a specialist teacher), Dynamo Maths online resource, Maths booster teacher, additional one to one after quality first teaching using a mastery approach. 
  • Funding after school sports clubs and in school musical instrument tuition to ensure equality of opportunity, motivation and enthusiasm for learning.
  • Additional extra curricular clubs that support learning.
  • To support the children attending Breakfast Club in preparation for learning.
  • Funding for chargeable activities such as residential trips if needed.
  • Bought in resources if identified as a need.
  • Liason with parents to help us assess the impact of the intervention programmes and enhanced learning opportunities.

Our pupils premium children’s needs are constantly assessed and monitored and no intervention or support ruled out that will improve the group’s life chances. 

We will assess our pupils, with regards to the new grant allocation for 2016-2017, and provide a similar programme to last years supplemented with additional resources/interventions according to identified need. 

All of the above assessments, interventions and support are built into our system for all pupils who need it, so ensuring sustainability and the school’s ability to mobilise resources when required.

We measure the impact of the pupil premium by examining our pupil tracking data, external assessments, parent feedback and the motivation and achievement of the pupils themselves.

The governors review the school’s pupil premium strategy in their learning and development team which reports to the full governing body. There is a dedicated school governor who oversees on a regular basis the performance and progress of these vulnerable pupils. Date of review: Nov 2017
