Pupil Premium 2015-16

The school received a total allocation of £139, 400 for those pupils in receipt of free school meals and pupils looked after by the local authority.  This funding has predominantly been used to target and support children and their families through intervention programmes, precision teaching and parental support where a need is identified.  These programmes are of an academic and nurturing nature.

How the money was spent

Additional teaching groups in 6, including a fresh start phonics group to support spelling and reading.
Provide support for families at home and in school through our home-school link worker.
We were able to address and support the development and learning of children with specific needs by employing specific needs teaching assistants, including support for speech and language, nurture and positive play groups.
Targeted use of additional teaching assistants to deliver precision teaching and intervention programs of an academic nature to improve phonological awareness, maths and literacy skills.
Teaching Assistant to support behavioural needs of pupils through nurturing intervention groups and individual withdrawal.  This support enables pupils to develop successful strategies that allow them to participate in a classroom setting and access learning.
Resources and professional development for staff to further improve quality of teaching and meet pupil needs eg Forest Schools, Early Years webinars and Write Away Together intervention.
​Release time for SENCo

Impact of spending on pupils

The outcomes for those children has allowed them to make  accelerated progress across the curriculum and narrow the gap to their peers.  Many groups of children made more than expected progress across the curriculum, this includes those year groups where the proportion of children with SEN was high also.  This support is continually reviewed so further areas of support can be identified and positive gains made.
