Our Pupil Premium allocation for the financial year 14/15 was £97,500

This funding was used for:

Learning mentor - Continuing to offer small group tuition for pupils who require additional input with their learning. Offering interventions to identified groups of pupils in order to accelerate progress. The learning mentor was also able to run 'Read and Respond' sessions which allowed direct input to challenge misconceptions from the previous days lessons.
Homework club continued to be a successful use of finances and this was continued in 14/15 with both sessions being full to capacity!

Breakfast club – continues to offer the opportunity for 8 children to have a settled start to the day including a meal. It also supports the parents of these pupils by giving them a daily contact with a known member of staff. This has had an impact on attendance due to children attending regularly and arriving on time.

Rocket Reading - this allowed pupils to read on a daily basis with an adult. This not only improved reading confidence but gave opportunities for pupils to discuss what they had read and thus develop their comprehension skills.

Professional development for staff - training for teachers and for support staff in working with pupils who are eligible for the pupil premium grant.
