During the academic year 2014-2015 we will receive a total of £41,700 of pupil premium funding.

The pupil premium allocation is spent either by providing academic support to boost attainment or as a means by which pupils learning or experiences may be enriched.

Where pupil’s attainment is good, the funding will be used to enrich their learning through:

  • Funding residential and educational visits
  • Funded extra-curricular clubs and activities
  • Challenge groups to ensure pupils fulfil their academic potential           (Literacy & Maths)
  • Breakfast club
  • Music tuition
  • Other areas specific to the individual needs of a pupil eligible for pupil premium funding.

Where pupil’s attainment is below the national expectations, the funding will be used to support the pupils learning needs through:

  • 1:1 tuition
  • Intervention groups (Reading, Writing & Maths)
  • Other areas specific to the individual needs of a pupil eligible for pupil premium funding.

 

Impact on Attainment

The impact of this spending can be seen in good rates of progress for all pupil premium children. This group has also demonstrated noticeably improved learning behaviours, with improvements in levels of involvement and engagement with their learning.
