Pupil premium

Pupil Premium Statement for 2015 to 2016  

This year the progress of Pupil Premium pupils will be supported by specific Teaching Assistant support. They will also be supported by an Inclusion Manager who will monitor behavioural and social and emotional development of pupils, then working with the families to put in place individual support for disengaged pupils. There will also be a 'mentor' for the Services children, working with both families and pupils. 

The in class support will be focussed on Writing and Maths for Year 6 in particular, this is through the  Fresh Start Intervention programme.  Read Write inc. spelling will be used in Years 3 and 4. The maths across the school, will be further embedding the Maths Make Sense programme, with additional training and support for staff.  

A new intervention  operating across the school is our ARROW training , which is showing excellent results for improving spelling and reading ages.  

Reading and Writing are being supported by the Accelerated Reading package, again through further training and support for all staff; this is being promoted  by significant investment in key texts in the academies library. 

The library is becoming increasingly popular,  it is now open after school on two days for parents and children.

Other additional funding for PP pupils has addressed the integration needed by EAL students (PP), this is targeted specifically to each child’s need.  

Raising aspirations through the Brilliant Club and Science Club, Reading and Maths Cafés. This has seen (PP) parents coming to these events, as they increase in popularity over time.
