A review of the impact of the money spent takes place at the end of each academic year and is reported to Governors
The Pupil Premium money is used to support a range of programmes taught by teachers and teaching assistants to ensure that the group of targeted children make good progress in line with all children. Funding has been allocated to enable children to 'keep up' with their peers by providing 1:1 support or small group support in the afternoons on programmes such as Read Write Inc, Lifeboat, Write Dance, Progression in Phonics, additional reading and comprehension support, emotional support and catch up maths support. Teaching assistants are timetabled to support underachieving children as well as those receiving Pupil Premium funding. Interventions are evaluated for impact on a half termly basis. The targeted support aims to move children forward by a year in an academic year. We aim to ensure that vulnerable children make at least expected progress during a year and those without SEN are at least entering or working within expectations for their age group.
In some circumstances we also choose to spend the money on subsidising residential visits and school trips for this group of children to ensure they are able to access the wide range of extra curricular activities this school has to offer.
We are committed to raising standards for every child and invest resources and time to ensure that every child receives the support and challenge they require to succeed.
Please see the attached document which details the impact of the Pupil Premium money on raising standards at our school.
