Pupil Premium Report
To ‘narrow the gap’ between the attainment of groups eligible for the Pupil Premium, and their peers, Senior Leaders and School Governors have agreed the following strategies:
Our allocation of the Pupil Premium is governed by our commitment to ensuring that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all pupils, that vulnerable groups receive appropriate provision, and that funding is prioritised on the basis of need.
The Pupil Premium funds additional teaching assistants, which allows us to provide additional support and interventions in maths, writing, phonics, reading and pastoral care (through nurture groups), as appropriate to the needs of our pupils.
Additional one to one tuition is provided by qualified teachers, outside of the school day, to enable children in Key Stage 2 to catch up with their peers. Children requiring these interventions are identified through careful analysis of assessment data.
Our Special Needs Coordinator (SENCo) is non-class based, which allows time for small group work, monitoring and assessment of groups and individuals, and managing interventions across school.
We employ a Parent Support Advisor who supports disadvantaged families and those experiencing difficulties.
Rewards for good attendance and behaviour throughout the school year are provided throughout the school year.
We subsidise enrichment in the curriculum by providing opportunities for ‘Music Tots’ in Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1, and Choir and Whole Class Instrumental Tuition in Key Stage 2.
