For specified children such as Looked After Children, Children in Care and children eligible for Free School Meals, the school is allocated additional funding to support general educational provision. This is called ‘Pupil Premium’.
Pupil Premium 2017-2018
Total funding: £5,280
Expected expenditure: £5,452.80
How we spent the money We spent the money providing additional teaching, focussing on in-class small group tuition, to promote the extended learning of these able children. We also focussed on developing self-regulation, effective feedback and peer tutoring strategies.
Evaluation of impact The children in this cohort mostly achieved expected progress, along with expected or above expected attainment this year in core subject areas. As there were only a small amount of children eligible for the funding, due to Data Protection, this detailed information is not published.
Pupil Premium 2018-2019
Total funding: £7,580
Expected expenditure: £7,616.70
Main barriers to educational achievement Last year, the majority of our pupil premium children were very successful academically. Therefore our focus this year will be to extend their learning further still, as able pupils.
How will we spend the money? This year we intend to spend the money providing additional teaching, focussing on in-class small group tutoring, to promote the extended learning of these able children. We will also continue to focus on developing self-regulation, effective feedback and peer tutoring strategies which have worked well previously.
How will we measure the impact? We will do this by using and monitoring the school's established Assessment Trackers and Markbooks throughout the year, regular Raising Attainment and Progress meetings with staff, and summative end of the year assessments.
Review This will be reviewed by the Headteacher throughout the year and summarised at the end of the academic year in July 2019.
