Pupil Premium

In 2017/18 the school has recieved £25,080 Pupil Premium funding.

We use our Pupil Premium funding in the following way:

  • A designated Pupil Premium higher level teaching assistant is being provided for all  children. The teaching assistant will provide weekly appropriate one to one support for each child’s differing needs. Research demonstrates that one to one support is far more effective than group support.
  • All Pupil Premium children have been offered free membership to any of the 49 weekly clubs on offer at our school.
  • All Pupil Premium children have been offered the opportunity to learn a musical instrument and be offered free weekly lessons.

We are continuing with our strategy of providing all Pupil Premium children with weekly high quality one to one support. This is delivered by Mrs Warne who is a highly experienced HLTA. She works with the classteacher to identify priority areas for each child’s learning. The children’s progress is closely monitored and the intervention adjusted accordingly to ensure maximum effectiveness. Progress data for the children will be added to the website after termly assessments have been completed.

In 2016/17 the school recieved £15,840.00.
