Pupil Premium funding is given to each school to support the needs of pupils who are eligible or have been eligible to receive free school meals.
For the academic year of 2018 - 2019 the school received £29,680
The senior leadership team have discussed with staff various strategies for the best use of this funding. We continue to support children with extra curricular activities and the availability to learn to play a musical instrument. We positively encourage these children to join extra curricular clubs and have provided some extra curricular activities to encourage the children to maintain good self esteem and to widen their life experiences, for example a visit by a theatre company.
Specific pre-learning of key concepts of literacy and numeracy have been identified as a method of supporting children with their learning. Small group work supported by a teacher or a teaching assistant addresses concepts the children will face in the next class lesson giving them the confidence to take part in the main lesson more confidently. The children who take part in these pre-teaching activities have been more engaged in the main activities during class lessons. Small group work enables children to explore their misconceptions in a safe supportive environment.
67% of the pupil premium children in the 2018-19 cohort reached the expected level in reading, writing and maths in the 2019 assessments.
