Pupil Premium 2015 - 16
In April 2015, the school received additional funding under the title “Pupil Premium” We have been given an additional ￡136,000 to spend on enhancing the children’s learning experiences.
This year we have planned to spend the money as follows:
To provide all DAY school educational visits at NO cost to parents and to subsidise ALL residential visits by at least 70%. A list of all visits undertaken throughout the year can be found in the School Prospectus and on the school calendar.
To provide quality play experiences/equipment for all of the children. A new outside area for the Early Years Foundation Stage children (Nursery and Reception) will be re developed in line with previous years spends on outside areas to ensure quality experiences for all children across all key stages.
To provide further computer equipment (tablets) for the children to access a variety of learning through IT.
To provide additional specialist support to children in Year 6 in preparation for their Key Stage 2 SAT tests.
To provide additional specialist support for Year 1 - 5 through group intervention and mentoring.
To provide enrichment activities for the children to support their musical appreciation. We will employ a music specialist to deliver throughout the school and speech and language for the Early Years through a National winning programme - Soundpots.
To provide 6 themed days, 1 each half term, to celebrate different cultures and their celebrations. We organise a variety of different companies into the school to provide a programme of multi cultural events throughout the year. Full details can be found on the SMSC page of the website
We know that the children benefit greatly from this and enjoy the additional opportunities given to them through this funding
The impact of this funding is seen through the high levels of achievement and progress of the pupils at the school and their enthusiasm and behaviour towards learning is outstanding. See our Exam results section
