Objectives in spending PPG:
The key objective for 2013-14 was to close the gap between the attainment of the pupils eligible for pupil premium funding and the main cohort.
Summary of spending and actions taken:
It was strongly felt that small class sizes and carefully targeted TA early intervention with vulnerable groups of pupils were the way forward in raising the attainment of the pupil premium group.
Staffing was planned accordingly, 6 classes were retained – instead of 5 – thus incurring the cost of an extra teacher.
TAs and HLTA run carefully planned and closely targeted intervention groups for phonics, Maths, Reading etc depending on the individual needs of the children.
1-1 tutoring support £350.
Pupil Premium plans for 2014-15
Funding per child for this year (up until April 2015) will be £1,300 (after April 2015 this may change) and £1,900 for “looked after” children.
Numbers of pupil premium children in school are currently 13 plus 6 pending (YR).
Our estimate is for approx. £24,000 in funding up until April 2015.
We plan to use this to keep class sizes small and to fund carefully planned and individually tailored intervention support.
We may need to use some of it to buy in the services of a Family Support Advisor.
