Objectives in spending PPG:
The key objective for 2015-16 is to continue to close the gap between the attainment of the pupils eligible for pupil premium funding and the main cohort, particularly in writing.
This was successful at the end of the 2014-15 academic year and the vulnerable pupils exceeded the attainment of the main cohort at Level 2+.
Pupil Premium spending for 2015-16
Funding per child for this year (up until 31 March 16) is £1,320.
£300 per child where parents serve in the armed forces.
£1900 for “looked after” children and those adopted from care.
A total of £28,900 excluding additional funding up to 31.03.16. (Additional funding of £2572 has been spent on staffing for targeted needs for pupils in receipt of this.)
£30,196 has been used primarily to keep class sizes small and to fund carefully planned and individually tailored intervention support as this worked so well last year.
Carefully targeted intervention support has been provided by teachers or TAs for individual children, in phonics, Maths, fine motor skills and IT.
A family support worker has run a series of parenting workshops which were well attended and has worked with individual families on a range of issues – £465.
Funding has also been set aside to pay for school trips (£85), milk (£563) and clubs for those children entitled to Pupil Premium (£130).
A member of staff has attended bereavement support training with Prospect Hospice (£60).
