Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Funding for 2016-2017

 

Estimated Pupil Premium Funding: £105,290

Number of children : 99

% of children entitled to Pupil Premium Funding : 48.7%

 

As well as continuing to invest in additional teaching support and enrichment activities, we also intend using the funding in the following ways:-

  • Continuing to employ a Play Therapist through Fortis Therapy, using a ‘family’ approach to support children and work in partnership with parents to alleviate problems and keep children engaged in their learning.
  • Ensuring that each class, each half term has the opportunity to go on trips and activities in order to provide life experiences linked to their learning. These will be provided at a greatly reduced cost.
  • Employing an Attendance specialist to improve punctuality and attendance.
  •  

Impact on Attainment

Evaluating the impact of social interventions addressed by the enrichment activities is always difficult, but is best measured by the improvement of happiness and wellbeing levels which then has an impact on:-

  • Engagement and learning and ultimately on attainment and progress
  • Improved attendance.
  • Reduced time spent in the behavioural/time out provision
