Pupil Premium Funding 2012/13
This money is allocated to each school to support attainment and achievement for pupils who receive Free School Meals.
These children are identified and their needs assessed to find the best way to utilise the allocated money. The individual needs varied greatly and thus a variety of interventions have been used.
Funding was used for the following:
Trip to Hastings
For families to have an enrichment experience together. To enhance emotional well-being.
|Salary for counsellor
To help the emotional well-being of certain pupils in order to gain confidence and achieve at school.
Outside clubs – football, drama etc
For the children to experience other aspects of school, to enhance emotional well- being.
Maths Whizz and salaries for supervision
To improve general Maths skills.
For the children not attending residential trips to have an enriched experience.
To spend quality time with the teachers to enhance quality first teaching in order to enhance achievement and attainment.
Occasionally, the impact of extra support cannot be measured by statistics but has impacted greatly on the individual pupil which makes it difficult to evaluate.
However, July 2013 showed the school’s progress in the end of Key Stage 2 data. 71.4% of pupils gained at least level 4 in both English and Maths which is the second consecutive year above the national expectations. Please see the more detailed SATs percentages on the pupil attainment link on the school website.
