Summary of Pupil Premium Spending 2015/16
The key objective to spending our pupil premium grant is:
Raising attainment and achievement of pupils to at least expected progress and ensuring that the gap between their performance and other’s in the school and nationally is closed. The pupil premium fund is provided to raise the aspirations of children from disadvantaged backgrounds and give them more equal access to opportunities which do so. Our funding is therefore not only spent on providing additional academic support but on giving children the chance to participate in extra- curricular activities which may develop further strengths, talents or interests.
We use it for :
- 1:1 tuition - the majority of money is spent on 1:1 tuition. All FSM and E6 children receive 1:1 tuition in English or Maths from a qualified teacher weekly. We employ 2 teachers specifically.
- Resourcing - We have also bought resources which are used throughout the school. These have included specific maths equipment, computing programmes and equipment, educational puzzles and games or additional reading books.
- Subscription to a loaning organisation which provides large play equipment and currently have a number of trikes, bikes etc. that the children in KS1 are able to access at lunchtimes.
- Subscription to Beanstalk – a charity organisation which provides sustained additional reading support for 6 children this year.
- Play therapy - some children have had difficult situations in their lives which now require direct therapy in order to address issues and move forward positively. We provide a play therapist funded by pupil premium for one day a week to work directly with them. 5 children have accessed this therapy this year.
- Anxiety Therapy – Relax Kids – We recognise the need for building emotionally resilient children and trying to ensure they have strategies to cope when things worry them. These sessions are run by a trained occupational therapist. 7 children have accessed this therapy this term – progress is monitored through questionnaires filled in by both children and parents.
- Educational visits - All children (FP, FSM and E6) have their school trips and visits paid for.
- School uniform - (sweatshirts and PE kit) are provided free of charge.
- Enrichment/after school/extra- curricular activities - some children have activities out of school for which funding is provided eg. Swimming, dancing or music lessons.
Monitoring the impact
- Every 6 weeks we go through invoices and collate pupil premium spending on a spreadsheet.
- The progress of all pupil premium children is closely monitored during termly pupil progress meetings and ongoing teacher assessment.
- 1:1 teachers provide termly reports on progress using specific targets set by the class teacher.
- All children complete a questionnaire to gain some insight into their emotional well- being and feelings about their learning annually.
- Parents are consulted via an annual questionnaire
