Pupil Premium Provision Planned for 2014-15

Provision has been planned based on the needs of some individuals who are eligible for the Pupil Premium Grant, the generic needs of the PPG group as a whole (identified through our pupil tracking processes) and the needs of the school.  The following list provides a summary of where we plan to spend our PPG funding during the academic year 2014-15.  This list is not exhaustive and we will continue to assess the children’s needs, our plans will be adapted through the year if necessary.

During the academic year 2014-15 we plan to spend our PPG and PPP funding in the following ways:

  • To provide 1:1 and small group tutoring in numeracy and maths for individual pupils who are vulnerable to underachievement, as identified in termly pupil progress meetings.
  • To provide small group extension tutoring to enable high and average attaining pupils to ensure good progress is maintained, as identified in pupil progress meetings.
  • To provide 1:1 and small group interventions by TA’s in order to plug gaps in learning and/or support Special Educational Needs, as identified by the Assistant Head Teacher.
  • To provide therapeutic intervention, social and behavioural support for individual children, as identified by the Assistant Head Teacher.
  • To acquire effective materials, aimed at raising standards, particularly in writing.
  • To appoint a Teaching Assistant to support the transition of pupils between reception and Year 1.
  • To provide 1:1 support in the classroom for some, identified, individual children in order to effectively support their specific needs.
  • To provide financial assistance in order for some eligible children to access music lessons.
  • To provide financial assistance for some eligible pupils to access clubs, both in and out of school, in order to support the development of social skills, as identified by the Assistant Head Teacher.
  • To support some staff training where needs have been identified relating to the children eligible for Pupil Premium.
