Pupil Premium

In 2016-2017 we expect to receive approximately £36000:

We are planning to use the allocated funding to fund the following strategies:

  • Individual pupil conferencing to identify barriers to learning and children's aspirations.
  • Additional teachers to support pupils in KS1 and KS2 - in-class support and booster/intervention sessions.
  • Teaching Assistants in every class in the morning to support and target needs of children especially in English and maths.
  • Specialist English and maths teachers to provide additional support in-class as well as targeted booster classes so all children in receipt of Pupil Premium Grant achieve Age Related Expectations in both Key Stages.
  • Specialist English and maths teachers to provide additional support in-class as well as targeted booster classes so all children in receipt of Pupil Premium Grant  have opportunities to further develop their learning at greater depth at the end of both key stages.
  • Training for teaching assistants in all areas of the curriculum.
  • Curriculum enrichment – music tuition, school trips, after school sports.
  • Teaching Assistant to provide social skills groups and in-class support.
  • Breakfast Club.
  • Funding for additional SEN support and Educational Psychologist time.
October 2016 Pupil Premium Review
 
Lessons learnt and implications
  • After school support was not popular.
  • Additional in school support needed for 2016-17 and more frequently.
  • Immediate assessment on new intake with results to all concerned.
  • More frequent checks on PP progress – half termly progress checks clearly not sufficient – monthly checks especially when pupil premium children are SEN – 50%.
 
Implications:
  • Continue with TA training on more regular specific skills identified.
  • Evidence not clear as to when interventions took place.
  • Important that the interventions which have taken place and are taking place are clearly identified – books/ written statements/ outcomes and before and after measure taken. This has to be a priority for 2016/ 2017
Next Review due February 2017
