Additional Teaching Assistant in Foundation Stage
Children are able to access the outdoor classroom throughout the day. Additional support is there for those children with medical needs. There is an additional adult to listen to children and to provide the support, particularly with language development which is an identified need for our current reception children.
After school booster classes
Many Y6 children chose to come to these sessions, which were so successful that children who were not targeted also joined in the sessions. Opportunities were provided to support the children in developing the instant recall skills and practice SATs style questions.
Reading and Mathematics intervention programmes
Some of the pupil premium funding is used towards the cost of our reading intervention programmes. These programmes are available to all children from Y2 onwards .The use of these programmes has had a positive impact on raising the profile of reading in the school whilst accelerating progress in reading.
Spelling and Grammar intervention programmes.
Some of the pupil premium funding is used towards the cost of our r Spelling and Grammar intervention programmes called “Ivor Clue.”. These programmes are aimed at children from Y4 and Y6 who are struggling with Spelling and Grammar.
One to one Tuition
In some cases this is run as a one to one session but on other occasions one or two children of a similar level may be added to the group to support the ability for interaction and the development of social and interaction skills. These sessions are managed by the child’s class teacher but often run by an additional teacher.
In Subsidy for the Residential
The school runs a residential trip for Year 4 and Year 6 pupils. The school uses some of the pupil premium money to pay towards to funding of the trip for families who qualify for pupil premium.
School Music lessons
A music teacher comes into school working once a week with different classes across the school teaching singing and music. This gives the children the opportunity to be taught by a high skilled professional music teacher. Some pupil premium children have displayed a talent in this area and the funding has enabled them to pursue this interest..
Using our in school tracking system we carefully track the progress of all the children in our school including those pupil premium children and ‘looked after’ children.
Nationally pupil premium eligible children perform below their peers and pupil premium funding is designed to narrow this gap in performance.
