PUPIL PREMIUM ALLOCATION

In line with our School Improvement Plan to raise the attainment of FSM students, we allocated funding for September 2014 – August 2015 to the following areas:

  1. Intervention:  We employed an extra Maths and an extra English teacher  to work with those pupils requiring additional and specific help and included Pupil Premium children.  The aim was to provide intensive additional tuition in core subject areas.  We also provide other intervention support as and when required in other subject areas.
    Cost:  £62167
  2. Pastoral Support:  We have 3 House offices, each with 3 members of staff who all support children on FSM with any pastoral needs. 
    Cost:  £67967
  3. Pupil Premium Breakfast:  The school provides £1 per day to all Pupil Premium children for them to buy food up to that value during breakfast club.  The intention is to ensure that children have the opportunity to eat so that they can concentrate more effectively while learning and to encourage attendance and improve punctuality.
    Cost:  £4282
  4. Cashless Catering:  The school provides a cashless catering service to ensure that all students can access free school meals without the knowledge of their peers.
