Principles

  • Our key principles are that achievement for all students, including those from disadvantaged backgrounds, is best fostered in a school with an ethos of high expectations, where high quality teaching and learning is at the heart of all we do. To this end our curriculum is designed and regularly reviewed to ensure it meets the needs of all groups of students so that teaching and learning in the classroom is the main focus for raising achievement for all students. We use the latest evidence based research on proven strategies which work to narrow the attainment gaps and adapt these as necessary to meet the needs of all our pupils.

·         In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for Pupil Premium. For this reason we reserve the right to allocate the pupil premium funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils whom the school has legitimately identified as being disadvantaged.

  • The Pupil Premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis that will identify priority year groups, classes, groups or individuals. However not all Pupil Premium children will necessarily be in receipt of interventions at the same time.
  • We ensure there is robust monitoring and evaluation in place to account for the use of the Pupil Premium, by the school and governing body.

Provision

  • This year the Pupil Premium grant has funded breakfast, lunchtime & homework clubs, partially funded school trips (for Pupil Premium pupils), Paid for Forest School, PE lessons with a specialist teacher to facilitate Booster groups in year 1 and 2 and partially funded Nurture group and a Behaviour Support Assistant.
  • The aim of all Pupil Premium work is to ensure the children achieve average or above average progress in literacy and numeracy but also to improve the children’s social and emotional well being.
  • Children entitled to Pupil Premium have directly accessed individual and group work in class with a Teacher or TA (based on individual needs) and have been offered places in the breakfast club, daily lunchtime club and homework clubs. There has also been a wider benefit for all children through the use of a qualified PE coach, which has allowed for small booster groups to take place across year 1 and 2.
