Pupil Premium 2016 - 2017: The year ahead...

The following information is about how we allocated the Pupils Premium grant in the academic year 2016 – 2017. The pupil premium grant is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. The grant predicted for the following year is £51480  and is for pupils who have had in the past, or are currently in receipt of free school meals. If you have any questions or wish to have more details please do not hesitate to speak to Ms Morgan or Mrs Fellows.

Main barriers to educational achievement:

Practical Access to school clubs, additional events such as residential visits, music lessons Financial support provided
For FSM pupils all visits and residential costs covered.
All families are made aware of lines of support 
Social Pupils can find it difficult to integrate into group situations. This then can impact on behaviour and social interaction in general Social groups
Roles within school to build self-esteem
TEC club events
Emotional Due to previous experience pupils can experience difficulties in handling emotions. These can spill into the classroom, affect or prevent learning. Also low self-esteem is linked to low attainment which affects the pupils enjoyment and participation in the school day. Individual drawing and talking
Individual Counselling sessions
Roles within school to build self-esteem
Identified key workers
English and maths basic skills Pupils can experience gaps in their learning which prevents the effective building of further key skills. Repetition and use of interventions programmes support these pupils. Gaps in key areas can also lead to low self esteem Range of intervention programs
Support in the classroom
Individually designed bespoke program for each child to challenge to meet targets at whatever level
Movement between schools Some of our pupils move within the school year. It is essential that we rapidly baseline to ensure that learning is at the correct pitch Intervention from the Transition coordinator to ensure swift movement of necessary information and that parents are also inducted effectively.
