Report on Pupil Premium Allocation 2016-2017
Following the finance meeting on 22/4/16, these were the pupil funding allocations for the coming financial year:
(Y3 child) £1,320.00
(Y4 child) £1,320.00
(Y6 child) £1,320.00
(Y5 child) service child = £300
Total funding received £4,260.00
Pupil Premium expenditures:
Interventions teacher (1 day per week) £5,962.00
Cooking club expenses for all 4 children (ingredients and extra cooking equipment) approx. £50.00
Covering half the cost of Y6 child’s residential trip to London £125.00
Total spend £6,131.00
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.
It is recognised that at present the school is supplementing pupil premium funding and this will be reviewed following the Budget meeting in October 2016.
