As a school we consistently track all groups of pupils to ensure that they make good or better progress. Through targeted interventions we are working to eliminate barriers to learning and progress. For new entrants that start with low attainment on entry, our aim is to ensure that they make accelerated progress in order to reach age related expectations as they move through the school. Once at age related expectations we always continue to extend that learning further to ensure that they reach higher levels of attainment. We closely monitor how we are spending the allocated funds to ensure they are having an impact on pupil premium pupils’ achievement.

Specialist TA Support ~ Orrets Meadow

All children have made good progress, developed in confidence, improved spelling, have developed their ideas in writing and are now using more sophisticated vocabulary. All children have developed independence in their written work.

Interventions and support will continue for our Pupil Premium pupils who require it and this will continue to be tailored to individual need.

 

All Pupil Premium children will be discussed in Pupil Progress meetings every half term to ensure they are on track to reach their potential and any additional support is put in place for them.

 

We will continue to use our pupil premium funding to utilise the expertise of specialist teaching from Orrets Meadow Special School to meet the needs of our individual children for the Autumn Term.

 

All children will be settled and secure in school; they will have their social emotional and behavioural needs met and will be happy and ready to engage and learn. Pupils know that they have someone in school that they can speak to if and when needed. Support for parents is provided if needed.

 Learning Mentor Support

All children have access to social, emotional and behavioural support with individual positive outcomes. Parents have benefitted from Magic 123 training, feedback from which has been positive. Of the two children who received ELSA support, one child increased their Pivats score most in social and emotional aspects of learning.

12 children accessed social skills, nurture or emotional support. All children feel that these interventions have impacted positively and they are better equipped emotionally to learn.

All children know, when questioned, who they can access for emotional support and have expressed that they feel more supported because of this.

Children who no longer have set learning mentor time, still have access to sessions as and when required and are aware of the availability of this support.

We will continue to use our Pupil Premium funding to provide a Learning Mentor for our children and families.

 

 

Equal access for educational trips and residential visits & extra-curricular and enrichment.

Financial support with costs of residential visits and clubs

All pupils in school from Year 2 to Year 6 have attended residential visits and have developed independence, team work, self confidence and self esteem. Extra-curricular activities have also been provided for those children who need support enabling equality of opportunity. One child attended archery club funded through pupil premium.

We will continue to use Pupil Premium funding in this way as we feel it is vital that children feel fully included socially and educationally. Residential visits help to develop children’s independence and their social and emotional skills. Educational visits link to the topic that the children are working on in class therefore it is important that they attend these in order to be able to complete further work within class ensuring equality.
