Planned Use of Pupil Premium Funding in Our School 2021-2022

Please read this alongside our Pupil Premium Policy 

Available Pupil Premium Funding in the 2021-2022 Financial Year  is £62.120.00

Use of Funding:

A central principle underlying the deployment of all funding is the employment of only the highest quality teachers. These are supported through our commitment to ongoing professional development which is focussed upon developing teacher’s ability and confidence to meet the needs of each child not just academically but also personally, socially, emotionally.

We have a clear view about using the majority of the pupil premium to fund small classes, with high levels of teaching assistant support.

  • Smaller classes mean that teachers are able to use their expertise to focus on ensuring each child receives the correct challenge and support to enable them to make the best possible academic progress.  
  • Smaller classes enhance the level of pastoral care and support that can be put in place for individual children and help ensure good relationships.
  • The smaller classes enable the class teachers to have to time to deliver the support and interventions that the EEF toolkit have shown to be most effective:
    • Effective Feedback
    • Developing metacognition and self regulation skills (learning about learning )
    • Focusing on embedding basic literacy and numeracy skills including reading comprehension
    • Developing positive behaviour and personal responsibility
    • Phonic teaching appropriate to children in class setting
    • Early intervention including a focus on developing early communication
    • Good parental relationships

Strategy

 Planned Activity

Employment of only the highest quality teachers who  are supported through our commitment to ongoing professional development which is focussed upon developing teacher’s ability and confidence to meet the needs of each child not just academically but also personally, socially, emotionally.

  • Staff training on developing teaching and learning of phonics and reading
  • Monitoring to assess and embed the effectiveness of key teaching and learning foci in the 2020 2021 academic year namely:
    •  Vcabulary focus including NELI
    • Mental arithmetic including adpting a four parts daily teaching approach to mathematics.
    • Fcusing on scaffolding to overcome barriers and lifting the lid on expectations rather than differentiation by learning objective.
    • Trauma infrmed schools approaches being developed across the school.

 

Ensuring seamless links between use of catch up funding, which happens outside the classroom  and pupils premium funding which is used within the classroom to maximise progress  for children.

  • Catch up delivered in small groups by a trained teacher who is a member of the school teaching staff and planned for by class staff.

 

At least termly interviews with all teaching staff above the provision and progress for pupils who are eligible for pupil premium funding or otherwise vulnerable.

  • Interviews to look at assessments, data and provision
  • For children where progress or attainment is less than expected there should be further individual strategies and challenge to teachers to strive for the best for each child.
