Total Amount Delegated to this school £3,850 and how this money is used 2013-14

Pupil Premium Funding is used to fund the following:

One to One and Small Group Tuition - A teacher is employed by the school in a part time capacity to run extra tuition for pupils who are falling behind in their progress in Mathematics and Literacy. These children are identified via termly assessments by class teachers.

The school employs an experienced and trained Teaching Assistant to run ‘top up club’ for mathematics. Children, who find aspects of maths tricky, are invited to attend this after school club – it has been well attended by a range of year 6 pupils.

The school organises a wealth of extended school clubs and additional activities, children who attract this funding are able to take up these opportunities at no cost.

The funding is also used for any update training for the above members of staff.

The school also employs a Teaching Assistant to deliver reading interventions to children from KS1. This is carried out several times a week on a one to one basis.

Impact on Attainment

This work has led to

  • Improved confidence and attitudes to mathematics for pupils allowing them to keep pace with their peers in learning.
  • All Y6 pupils making at least good progress and exceeding national and school targets.
  • Reduced anxiety and increased confidence and self-esteem enabling children to access learning, work in groups with others more successfully, organise their learning and complete homework
  • Move successfully to Secondary School with confidence to access their learning
  • Parents positive response to intervention and increased engagement with learning

The teacher delivering 1-1 and the small group tuition run by Teaching assistants has resulted in:

  • Children making gains in progress in English and Mathematics and making up ground in order to keep up with their peers
  • Children gaining in confidence to address areas of Maths and English that they may find challenging
