Nature of support

We use the Pupil Premium funding to plan for the most appropriate intervention, ensuring that it is tailored to each child’s individual need. During review meetings between the Head teacher, wider management team, teaching staff as well as teaching assistants the children’s’ progress is discussed and then vulnerable groups of children are identified. Discussion about the most appropriate intervention is then planned for, implemented and reviewed regularly.

 

Curriculum focus of PPG spending

The funding is used to support the development of children’s reading and writing skills using Read, Write, Inc. and FRESH START (literacy programmes designed to create fluent readers, confident speakers and willing writers). Teaching Assistants are also deployed effectively enabling the identified children to work either in small groups or one to one for English, Reading and Maths identified through the progress review meetings.

 

Measuring the impact of PPG spending

The impact of the Pupil Premium spending is measured carefully every half term during progress review meetings and as a result of analysing the children’s work. After evaluating the impacts, intervention is planned accordingly and the necessary changes are made. The Pupil Premium spending has had a positive impact across the curriculum.
