Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium 2015/16

Pupil premium money is sent to school based on the number of pupils who have been eligible for free school meals at any time in the previous six years. In addition to this, the school receives a small amount of money per child whose parents are in the forces or those who have been in the care of the Local Authority for more than six continuous months. This money is allocated to ensure that pupils from lower-income families reach their potential, both academically and socially.

In 2015/16 the school received £119,515 pupil premium. This was spent on

  • HLTA and TA led intervention groups to support the pupils who are not making expected progress
  • Year 6 booster groups for literacy and numeracy
  • Pastoral support – learning mentors, parent support officer, – to improve attendance and punctuality as well as readiness for learning
  • Improving the effectiveness of TA support through fortnightly professional development meetings including effective questioning and marking / feedback
  • Extra-curricular activities, e.g. homework clubs, targeted to pupil premium pupils to support learning and increase self-esteem
  • Subsidies for extra-curricular activities, trips, residential trips and uniform
  • Speech development support and language enrichment groups for reception pupils
  • Maths support through the Numbers Count Programme and 1st class at Number
  • Reading support – Beanstalk volunteer reading scheme, 1-1 Read,Write Inc intervention
  • Parent workshops to improve engagement of parents of pupil premium children
