Pupil Premium

 

Pupil Premium 2013 – 2014

School was allocated £61,200 Pupil Premium which is in addition to main school funding. The level of funding was based on the number of pupils who had been eligible for free school meals at any point in the previous six years.

During the academic year 2013- 2014 Pupil Premium is being used to fund the provision of an additional teacher and higher level teaching assistant who deliver intervention programmes in both Mathematics and Literacy. Numbers Count and 1st Class @ Number 1 & 2 are interventions designed to support children who experience difficulties with Number. Other children will access a Fischer Family Trust Wave 3 intervention programme which addresses both reading and writing. The aim of these programmes is to accelerate rates of academic progress and attainment for identified children. School is also spending money in order to facilitate the provision of the ‘Achievement for All’ programme. This will run for a period of two years initially and it is anticipated that it will impact on pupil progress and attainment across school. The provision of high quality staff training and also time for ‘Structured Conversations’ between parents and teachers are key features.

Data tracking is used rigorously across the school and identifies all underachieving pupils who would benefit from specific, targeted interventions. The impact of interventions is monitored regularly to ensure that children are receiving the best provision to meet their needs.

 

Each class has designated teaching assistant time to support all Literacy and Numeracy lessons and for delivering other interventions to facilitate accelerated progress.

School was allocated £23,650 Pupil Premium which is in addition to main school funding. The level of funding was based on the number of pupils eligible for free school meals. Money was used to facilitate interventions which improved the progress and attainment of pupils.

During the academic year 2011-12 a teacher and teaching assistant were trained to deliver 1st Class at Number to groups of pupils. Language Link was introduced to support children with speech and language difficulties.  Children with Individual Education Plans and those on Provision Maps accessed additional support to address their learning needs.

School rigorously tracks the progress of all children and groups of children. School held data shows that children eligible for free school meals made good progress in Literacy and Mathematics.
