Summary of PPG spending in the financial year 2017-2018
Objectives in spending PPG:
To raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.
|Summary of planned spending:
Each phase (KS1/LKS2/UKS2) has an intervention TA, not class based, to support children’s development in reading, phonics, writing and maths. These sessions take place outside of the mathematics/English lesson, allowing identified children to have one-to-one/small group sessions with a trained TA addressing an area of weakness or building on skills.
Intervention programmes have been put into place for all children who need support – rapid reading, writing and maths. Re-resourcing our Rapid intervention scheme will also take place this year and as this is in place primarily for our PP pupils it accounts for a percentage of the costs.
Another key issue that affects children’s learning occurs when they have emotional or social disruptions at home or at school. Three learning mentors have been working at the school for the past few years and funding for them has come through other, now ceased, funding. The pupil premium funding is now being used to pay for these learning mentors.
We are continuing to employ 2 extra MDAs, one in KS1 and the other in KS2. We have found that less incidents occur outside on the lunch break when there is greater supervision and intervention, therefore when children come back into the classroom they are ready to learn and settle down quickly.
As a proportion of our PP children have special educational needs, part of our PP funding goes towards the cost of the Inclusion Manager. Not only does our Inclusion Manager work directly with individuals and groups of children; she also involves the parents in a variety of areas to support them and their child’s learning. We offer a range of workshops for parents in phonics, , e.safey, EAL, SATSs support, first aid, school readiness, Maths workshops for Knex, school readiness, secondary school transition as well as family communication. Through the diligence of the provision provided we gained the ‘Parent Partnership Award’ (2014-2015) and will continue with this provision this academic year and renew.
Poor attendance is directly linked to under achievement. We have our own Attendance Officer in school who supports the Headteacher in her targets to raise attendance further as we know this is crucial in supporting good attendance and progress.
Homework underpins learning in class and can be a barrier to good/accelerated progress if this work is not completed, therefore to support pupils and parents with their homework activities we have implemented several clubs where children have the opportunity to attend and get support with their homework if necessary.
To support parents further with their morning routine we have put in place a breakfast club which all children are welcome to attend. PP funding is used to ensure that all children with this entitlement can attend breakfast club for free and are personally invited.
