Pupil Premium Funding 2019-20

For Years 2 and 6, additional staff ensure all the children are taught literacy and numeracy in smaller groups and receive high quality interventions.
In 2019-20 school received £137,280 which we have used to raise the achievement of pupil premium children through:

  • Direct teaching support – Extra teacher in Year 6 for 2 terms delivering interventions and supporting in class, extra teaching assistant to deliver high quality interventions in Year 2 on afternoons, extra teacher in Year 5 for 1 term to accelerate progress.
  • Removing barriers to learning - Pastoral staff working to support families and those families with children who are persistently absent.
  • Provide more extra-curricular opportunities for PPG pupils, including sports coaches and violin lessons.
  • To increase the % of pupils regularly completing and returning homework, maximizing their learning opportunities through the purchase of specific homework workbooks.
  • Providing individualised programmes of learning and resources for 2 children with SEND (which are also used by other key SEND groups) overseen for one morning by UPS 3 teacher and pupils have full time 1 to 1 support. 
  • Additional needs support is provided by a child psychotherapist (funded by school) and followed up with work from the school behaviour support team.
