Pupil premium report
Pupil premium has been carefully targeted once the needs of individuals have been assessed. Our experienced LSA’s have additional hours in order to focus on appropriate support interventions which mainly focus on extra support for Literacy and numeracy skills. Our aim is to make sure these children attain as well as their peers and this is monitored closely through internal tracking and regular professional dialogue between practitioners, teachers and headteacher. This funding has also been used to support extracurricular activities and resources. Some children have benefited from extra swimming lessons, joining our after school football, dance, reading and cooking clubs and the provision of support during holidays to join clubs. In April 2011/12 our allocation was £3, 904 and in April 2012, £4,800.
In April 2012/13 our allocation was £9,900 and for the academic year we have allocated an extra part time teacher to give individual and small group intervention work. We continue to support children in 2013/14 with extra support from our Learning Support Assistants who have attended courses in Literacy and Numeracy suppot.
