Pupil premium grant - 2014/15


The Pupil Premium Grant for 2014-15 is £96864

How is this money to be allocated? 

We strongly believe that our pupils should be competent readers who enjoy and develop a love of books. Funding will enable the school to provide a range of reading/support materials to support and engage those pupils in receipt of the Pupil Premium Grant. These materials will support all pupils within this group from early/emergent readers, reluctant and nervous readers through to competent and confident readers.

We believe that our pupils require a firm understanding of Number and calculations to enable them to be ready and prepared for the demands of Secondary school. In order to acquire a mastery of mathematics we must ensure that our children have a secure knowledge of the basic skills.

Pupil Premium Teacher Release will be allocated for a half day per week. This will enable each teacher to work alongside our designated coordinator to discuss how best to support pupils in receipt of the PPG (Pupil Premium Grant) This release will enable designated time for staff to discuss the progress and attainment of the pupils and evaluate strategies used to raise pupil attainment in order to Narrow the Gap.
  • Enable the purchase of 6 additional iPads to use with small groups.(Total 12)
  • Purchase additional apps for iPads
  • Provide additional cover to release support to attend training.
  • Provide training in relation to intervention strategies and review/evaluation of PPG
The remaining funds will be allocated within the staffing budget. This will enable :
  • The release of the SENCO to coordinate and organise support across the school for all children in receipt of the PPG. This will involve the observation of lessons, evaluation of support staff and intervention strategies. Identification of additional resources required to assist with Narrowing the Gap. Regular reviews with teaching staff (At least 5 times per academic year.) to monitor progress.
  • Full Time Teaching Assistant to provide in class support that enables the teacher to work specifically with identified children. This support will be allocated on a half termly basis to each year group (Y1-6) throughout the year.

PE and Sport Grant for 2014-15
is 
£9420

Our aim is to increase participation in high quality sport and physical activity across the school in addition to the two hours of high quality physical education currently being delivered by the school. The PE and Sports Premium will be used to offer extra curricular activities to the children both during school and through after school clubs. The funding will also be used to continue to provide CPD to teachers to help develop their confidence and further improve their delivery of lessons and assessment of pupils.

We aim to continue to participate in local competitions organised by the Local Authority and LOC Local Organising Committee. The funding will help to provide time to prepare our children for these competitions and provide the relevant teacher release cover and transportation costs.
