Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
- We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all of the pupils
- We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of pupils are adequately assessed and addressed
- In making provision for vulnerable pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive FSM or are from Service families will be socially or academically vulnerable
- We reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils the school has legitimately identified as being vulnerable.
- Pupil premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals. Limited funding and resources means that not all children receiving pupil premium funding will be in receipt of pupil premium interventions at one time
The range of provision for our school has been agreed and approved by the Governing Body.This includes:
- Providing small group work with a experienced Teaching Assistants (TAs) focusing on overcoming gaps in learning
- 1-1 support (where appropriate)
- Additional teaching and learning opportunities provided through trained TAs or external agencies
- All our work through the pupil premium will be aimed at accelerating progress moving children to at least age related expectations. Initially this will be in English and Maths.
- Pupil premium resources may also be used to target able children to achieve above age related expectation.
- Provision will not be aimed at statemented children or those with an Educational Health Care Plan.
- The Headteacher, or a delegated member of staff, will produce regular reports for the Governors’ Curriculum committee on:
- the progress made towards narrowing the gap, by year group, for vulnerable pupils
- an outline of the provision that was made since the last meeting
- an evaluation of the cost effectiveness, in terms of the progress made by the pupils receiving a particular provision, when compared with other forms of support
- It will be the responsibility of the Chair of the Curriculum Committee to ensure this information is made known to the full governing body
- The Governors of the school will ensure that there is an annual statement to parents on how the Pupil Premium funding has been used to address the issue of ‘narrowing the gap’, for vulnerable pupils.
