Report on Pupil Premium Allocation 2017-2018
Following the finance meeting on 2o/11/17, these were the pupil funding allocations for the current financial year is £6,600.00 (4 pupils)
Total funding received £4,260.00
Pupil Premium expenditures:
Interventions teacher (1 day per week) £5,962.00
Contributions to swimming / trips: £638.00
Total spend £6,600.00
Each Pupil Premium child had an Action Plan outlining their needs. After discussions with parents and class teachers, it was apparent that the 4 children mostly needed academic support. Originally it was proposed that we would have ‘Superstars’ to provide interventions for these children 1 day per week but their Maths and Literacy interventions were found not to be suitable for all 4 children (they had a range of issues and abilities). Consequently the school made the decision to independently employ an Interventions teacher with whom class teachers could directly liaise and could specifically dictate which interventions were needed for Maths and Literacy, tailoring the interventions to where each particular child was experiencing difficulties. This was evaluated by teachers to be worthwhile and having a good impact on progress and children’s well-being (individual and small group support). The school will carefully monitor the progress and well-being of our Pupil Premium children each term and evaluate which strategies are having a positive impact.
