September 2014- September 2015 

The school will receive £37000 for pupil premium calculated on the numbers who have free school meals, and children of armed service personnel.  This is a marked increase and will therefore allow for the expansion of support we can offer.

This is the way we propose to allocate the money this year.

Pupil Premium


Music Tuition

Children will continue to receive music tuition.  We will continue to promote musical instrument learning in violin or woodwind after assessment of eligible children’s ability to learn an instrument.

After school clubs

Currently this year we have identified continuing and expanding the computer club buying in professional services and resources to deliver such a club.

Residential Trips

This year we have only one residential trip and subsidises were taken up by several parents of children eligible for pupil premium funding

Play therapist

A play therapist will continue to offer counselling and support to some children and we have expanded this to other children who are assessed in need of this service.  Sessions will vary according to need, either over a ten week programme or longer if required.

SENCO release

Continuing last year’s success this has been extended.  The SENCO will continue to monitor and deliver to identify children the services they require.  The SENCO will also help deliver feedback sessions to children eligible to receive pupil premium funding.

Individual teaching support

This funding helps release class teachers to feedback on children’s work and to work on improvements.  The release time is covered by qualified teachers taking the rest of the class.

Teacher led group interventions

This is delivered every week in sessions of up to an hour to Year 6 and Year 5 pupils.  Support is given in reading, writing, mathematics, spelling and grammar.  The programme will vary throughout the year targeting Year 2 children in term 3.
