Pupil Premium & PE Grant Funding

Pupil Premium Funding

In the financial year 2016/17 the school allocation was £6,440.

This funding was used to support pupils in English and maths. Teaching assistant support was used to give specific support in the classroom and also to deliver intervention programmes such as IDL and Clever Fingers. It was also used to provide emotional support to improve behaviour for learning.

The impact of this support is monitored at regular intervals during Pupil Progress meetings. Progress against National Expectations is monitored on a termly basis.

In the financial year 2017/18 the school allocation was £3,800.

PPG funding was used to provide specific support with maths and English and to continue to fund the IDL programme in terms of school license and teaching assistant time to deliver it. The funding was also used to provide carefully targeted intervention in order to close gaps. Part of the funding was used for specific assessments which will be completed by outside providers Acorn Psychology.

In the financial year 2018/19 the school allocation is £3,800.

The funding will be used to provide TA support and to provide targeted interventions focused on both cognitive development and also emotional well being to improve behaviour for learning.
