Impact of Pupil Premium 2018 - 2019

As a result of daily small group phonics / spelling sessions, Targeted SPAG sessions and individualised Y6 homework:

  • 100% of children achieved the expected standard in the Year 1 Statutory phonics screening with all children achieved 36 or above out 40.
  • 82% (9 out 11) achieved the expected standard in the Y6 Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar SAT. 73% (8/11) children achieved a standardised score of 110 or above.
  • More inclusion during playtimes and PE sessions of children with SEN.
  •  Opportunities to develop confidence and self esteem.
  • Additional support with handwriting has enabled children to present their work neatly and legibly. This is evident in book sampling and through the number of children achieving their pen license
  • Draw and Talk therapy and counselling has provided opportunities for children to talk and understand their feelings linked to family situations and changes in their lives.
  • Switch on to Reading and Writing intervention programmes supported borderline children in achieving the expected standard in their Y6 SATs and children in making progress in other year groups.
  • Physical and speech programmes have resulted in some children making good progress and no longer requiring these interventions.
  • Additional support during assessments gave children more confidence and self-belief to try and achieve their best.
  • Additional support for reading and writing skills in small groups enabled the children to have pre-teaching and reinforcement sessions. This resulted in the chidlren making more progres and  improved confidence and self esteem..
  • Social skills groups enabled staff to model behaviours and support children with dealing with diferent situations. They also give children an opportunity to discuss any worries or concerns and positive strategies to help them overcome challenges.  .
