Historic Pupil Premium Spending

All schools have to publish information about the use of the funding which is delegated to schools through Pupil Premium. Below you will find details of how we have used this money. This funding is a valuable resource for the school and enables us to provide extra support. With the introduction of free school meals for infants many parents may not apply for free school meals. However, if you think you might be entitled to this, it is vital that you do to ensure the school receives extra funding which will benefit your child. Contact the school office for information.

Pupil Premium 2013 – 2014

In 2013 the school received £9300 to support these pupils. This enabled these pupils to improve their maths and English scores and reduced the gap between their attainment and that of their peers. The School has developed

‘Closing the Gap’ groups to enable these children to make rapid progress in the basic skill to ensure they reach their full potential. The school used the Pupil Premium funding to:

– provide additional support from a TA to deliver personalised intervention

programmes in maths and English

– to purchase additional resources to support improvement in English and maths. A new phonic programme called Rapid Phonics is being used for small and individual group work. We have now extended and improved our phonic
resources for this group of pupils.

– to support the provision of parent workshops enabling parents to support their children

– to provide extra sessions before school. These may be individual or small group work.

– to provide enrichment activities for children working above the expected levels to ensure they achieved to the best of their abilities. This year the funding has been used to provide staff to support more able mathematicians to develop their skills through participation in a Maths Challenge at a local High School.

– to subsidise school trips

– to provide access to breakfast club and after school activities

Pupil Premium
 
2011 – 2012

In the academic year 2011 – 2012 the school received £1,653. This money was used to buy in extra teaching assistant support to work with underachieving children. The children received short sessions of ‘catch up’ work to enable
them to achieve at the expected level. We have very few children who meet this criteria and they are all making good progress.
2012 – 2013

This academic year the school received £3,560. This was used to purchase new resources to support reading and phonic skills development. The children who receive pupil premium are making good progress. It will also be used to
provide enrichment support for the children in our school who have free
school meals who are working above the average level. This support is ensuring the children are motivated and having work at the appropriate level provided. Small ‘catch

up’ groups are also being used, funded by this money, to support the boosting of those children who are working below the average level. They are all on track to achieve at the appropriate level at the end of this academic year
