Pupil Premium 2013-14

For the financial year 2013-14 schools were allocated this additional funding to be used to support interventions and provision already in place at their schools and to provide additional support where a need was apparent.

Our School

We received £6618.00 Pupil Premium Funding for the financial year 2013-2014. 9 children attracted funding.

Other funding was allocated from our Delegated Budget to this amount to ensure we could support all of our most disadvantaged pupils.

The Pupils Premium during 2013-2014 has had a significant impact on a number of aspects of learning:

These are:

• Good progress made by pupils in Early Years.
• Good sublevel progress (and Point Scores) across KS1.
• Teachers report that as a result of interventions children’s handwriting has improved, confidence with number has improved and they have an increased awareness of their growing abilities.
• Children have enjoyed extended learning opportunities.
• Resources have enabled children to further develop skills that support their learning.

Pupil Premium money was also  spent on the provision of teaching assistants and higher level teaching assistants in each class throughout the school day.  This also includes lunch time when TAs and HLTAs work as mid-day Supervisors. This provides constant social and emotional support together with on-going learning support throughout the school day. Whilst the remainder of the pupil premium allocation is used in this way the actual cost is far greater than the pupil premium money available and this is met from the schools main budget.
