Priorities for investment of the Pupil Premium Grant in 2016 are:

 

  • Employment of an EWO to improve the attendance and reduce persistent absenteeism among disadvantaged children.
  • Continue funding for Learning Mentors to remove social and emotional barriers to learning.
  • Training for new staff and refresher training in phonics. Non contact time for the phonics lead to monitor, evaluate, intervene and teach demonstration lessons.
  • Training to improve reading provision in Key Stage 1.
  • Training to improve GPS provision in Key Stage 2
  • Leadership time for reading and GPS monitoring and intervention.
  • Staff to implement writing interventions in Key Stage 1.
  • Staff to implement intervention programmes for GPS in Key Stage 2.
  • Staff to implement intervention programmes for writing and number in the foundation stage.
