Pupil Premium

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address inequalities by ensuring that the funding is used to tackle disadvantaged pupils.

 

It is for schools to decide how the funding is spent as they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for individual pupils within their responsibility.

 

At Lea Community Primary School we use this money to support children's overall development. We do this by providing a mixture of support, additional teaching, intervention classes, nurture support and family assistance, visits out of school, visitors in school to enrich the curriculum, support for breakfast club, plus additional resources.

 

For the academic year 2016-2017, we will be allocated £113,297. We intend to use the Pupil Premium to fund the following:

 

  • Employing a Pastoral Leader to support vulnerable children and families offering a menu of interventions.
  • Dedicated Y6 Intervention teacher.
  • Dedicated KS2 Intervention teacher for 2 terms.
  • Dedicated KS1 early learning intervention Teaching Assistant.
  • Targeted phonics interventions to ensure children meet end of Year 1 expectations.
  • Cognitive and working memory assessments and subsequent targeted interventions.
  • Increased specialist teacher input providing detailed assessments for under achieving children and subsequent support to SENDCo and teaching staff.
  • Purchase equipment to support identified needs for individuals within the classroom.
  • Payment of fees for Breakfast Club and Holiday provision for vulnerable families.
  • Support education visits and opportunities for vulnerable children.
