Pupil Premium Strategy 2016-2017

Some of the common barriers for Pupil Premium children can be fewer enrichment opportunities, lower level of support at home, weak language and communication skills, lack of confidence, behaviour difficulties, and attendance and punctuality issues and Specific Learning Difficulties. There may also be complex family situations that prevent children from flourishing. The challenges are varied and there is no “one size fits all”. When we make decisions about how to use additional funds to increase pupil progress and attainment we consider the following:

Planned Actions 2016-2017

The context of the pupils: their age, their level of attainment, social context

The quality of teaching: teachers and support staff knowledge and experience in the school

The School Improvement Plan: areas for improvement that we have identified

Key area

Planned action

Barrier

Objective

Success criteria

Reading

Provide one to one reading tuition before school for target children before school

 

The new curriculum is more challenging. It is important not only that children become fluent readers, but that they read consistently.

To ensure that pupil premium children are reading as much as other children and are guided to read increasingly challenging texts

Children read regularly and AR records demonstrate steady progress

Maths

Provide specialist maths tuition in all year groups

Lower confidence and  ambition in maths

To improve confidence in arithmetic

Arithmetic scores improve. Children make progress in line with peers

Learning readiness

Fund school counsellor, ELSA and Footsteps group

Emotional and social needs which cannot be met  in the classroom environment

To support social and emotional development

Children have self regulation strategies

Children are ready to learn in lessons

Cultural enrichment

Continue provision of peripatetic music as an enrichment activity

 

Cost of extra curricular lessons

To develop the whole child

To offer performance opportunities

Children will perform at a concert for peers and parents/carers
