Pupil premium grant expenditure: report 2016/17 

Overview of the school

 
 
Number of pupils and pupil premium grant (PPG) received ​
​Total number of pupils on roll ​28
​Number of pupils benefitting from PPG ​9
​Total amount of PPG received (£) ​£11,880

 

 

 

Summary of PPG spending 2016/17
Objectives in spending PPG: 
To close the gap in performance between children receiving pupil premium and non-pupil premium pupils. 
To ensure appropriate progress is made by all pupils receiving pupil premium. 
To ensure that all children are given equal access to residential trips, curriculum and extra-curriculum activities.
Summary of spending and actions taken for 2016/17 academic year: 
The school will spend the majority of the funding on staffing to provide one to one support for children who have learning and social needs and who are not making good progress in all areas.  Those children who are making good progress will be stretched and challenged so money will be spent on relevant training and resources.  A portion of the money will be spent on trips, curriculum activities, swimming lessons and uniform.
Outcomes to date: 
Pupils have improved their team work aspects through new playground equipment.  These have significantly boosted self-esteem, confidence and in turn their independence since the installation of a trained member of staff as an Emotional Literacy Support Assistant (ELSA).
ELSA sessions have considerably helped pupils who are now more able to access their learning. 
With such small numbers in our school, we are unable to publish figures for progress and results as pupils may be too easily identified.
Planned spending and actions for 2017/18 academic year:
As in previous years the pupil premium will be used to support those children in receipt of pupil premium.  Staff and Governors will monitor the impact of the additional support on the overall attainment and improvement of this group.  Where it is deemed appropriate, funds will be allocated to support school trips, curriculum and extra-curriculum activities.

Pupils in receipt of PPG in year 6 had successful transition to secondary school with raised self-esteem.  Pupils made progress academically after interventions in maths and English.  Many of the pupils in receipt of PPG were also on the SEND register were able to access Forest School.  Money was also used to subsidise  school trips, swimming, after school sports clubs, residential and uniform for those pupils.

the children make.
