SUMMARY OF PUPIL PREMIUM SPENDING

The extra staffing in year 6 has helped raise standards across the curriculum, showing that smaller classes and improved Quality First Teaching has had a greater impact this year. Our in-house CPD of Triad observations has been key into staff taking ownership of their professional development.

The extra staffing that the Pupil Premium Grant has helped fund, has allowed more targeted interventions in all year groups. With an improved focus on assessing, planning and teaching of the specific needs of the Pupil Premium children, and a more robust progress review system, which allows staff to adapt quicker to the needs of the children and ensuring that the targeted teaching and learning (and interventions where needed) has had the desired effect through regular monitoring, assessment and feedback. This has had a positive effect on the progress and attainment of children in all year groups, and is reflected in this year’s improved SATs results.

The Learning Mentors have been an invaluable resource, helping those children learn to deal with and overcome barriers to learning through a variety of small group interventions ranging from book clubs to intervention groups covering issues such as anger management, social and emotional wellbeing, friendship groups and counselling.

Parents of pupil premium children have continued to engage with the school through more conversations with staff and have been attending the weekly coffee mornings and variety of workshops that have been on offer. They have been a great success with feedback comments from those parents stating:

“This has been very helpful indeed.”

“Meeting with other parents regularly for coffee at school has helped with my anxiety.”

Having two professional counsellors (one full time on site) has be a major asset to the children who have needed support with their mental health, social and emotional issues and wellbeing.

Year 4, 5 and 6 Pupil Premium children have continued to enjoy peripatetic music lessons throughout the year with Mr. Winiberg.

The purchase of the 3D printers still sparks curiosity throughout the school and all pupil premium children have now become 3D printing pioneers by having the training first so that they can help drive this futuristic development in school, year on year. This continues to help boost the children’s self-esteem and self-worth.

Most of the PP children have taken advantage of the external tutoring at Crown Vanilla, for English, Maths and the 11+, whilst the Drama helps promote our core values – creativity, co-operation, resilience, responsibility, respect and enquiry. The PPG has allowed us to fund Year 6 for 2 terms, Year 5 for 3 terms and Year 4 for 2 terms this academic year. This has provided opportunities to develop high aspirations academically, and to help the individual to further secure knowledge, extend and challenge themselves.
