Pupil Premium Funding 2014-2016

Pupil Premium – Reporting to Parents

 

Principles

  • We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all the pupils
  • We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed
  • In making provision for disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged
  • We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. 
  • 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 free school meals will be in receipt of Pupil Premium interventions at one time.

 

Provision

  • The range of provision the school may consider include:
  • Providing small group work with an experienced teacher focussed on overcoming gaps in learning
  • 1:1 support
  • Additional teaching and learning opportunities provided through trained Teaching Assistants or external agencies
  • Acquiring effective materials aimed at raising standards, particularly in reading, writing and mathematics
  • 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 Literacy and Numeracy.
  • Pupil Premium resources may also be used to target able children on free school meals to achieve L3 at the end of KS1 or L5 at the end of KS2
  • Providing subsidies for residential visits
  • Provision of specific items for individual pupils
  • The school will published information on how they have used their Pupil Premium Grant to address the issue of ‘closing the gap’ for disadvantaged pupils
