Amount allocated to the action

(£)

Summary

1. Additional Teacher in Year 6

£57,415

This enables children to be taught in smaller class groups in Year 6 so that teaching and learning activities can be more closely matched to the child’s individual needs.

2. Two Additional TAs in Reception

£37,700

As many of our children arrive in reception with below age related ability it is important to give our children the best possible start to their learning. This enables a much more individualised approach to the provision.

3. Teacher  to deliver and support Interventions

£36,075

A programme of interventions is provided following rigorous pupil progress meetings. The Intervention delivers some of the programmes to small groups of children and coordinates and reviews all the programmes.

4. Non Class Based Inclusion Manager

£34,471

 

With an increasing number of children on our SEN register this has enabled the inclusion manager to more effectively manage lead the provision for children with SEN, EAL and to work with outside agencies to provide more effective support for such children.

Additional TA Support in Language Unit

£35,158

The pupil premium has allowed us to increase the amount of support in the Language Unit Classes, where a number of the PPG eligible children are.

Additional TA time in KS2

£6,483

The pupil premium has allowed us to make a small increase the amount of support in KS2.

How do I register my child?

If your child does not have free school meals but may be eligible because of your family’s income level, please contact the school office (in confidence) to register them. Even if you do not wish for your child to have a free school meal, the school could still register them and claim pupil premium funding that will benefit your child and the school.

School Sports Premium Funding

In 2015/16 the school received £9293 of Sport premium funding. We use this to meet a proportion of the cost of employing a specialist PE teacher for three days a week.
