· Supported through our Charging & Remissions Policy, we pay for all visits, visitors, trips and experiences that offer first-hand experiences that support our curriculum and our pupils’ capacity to access it successfully and understand it. Such experiences also support the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our children. These include annual residential trips and pantomime visits.
· School will continue to provide many extra-curricular clubs that support the health, wellbeing and academic development of pupils. Pupils and families are identified and signposted to particular clubs and activities if deemed relevant and appropriate.
· All classes will have at least one additional adult to support teaching and accelerate learning, with a particular focus on PP pupils and their progress. Interventions for emotional, social and academic development are run each afternoon based upon clear and precise data analysis and tracking of a reactive and proactive, planned nature, for example, Better Reading Programme; Numicon; EAL language support; daily ‘Keep Up, Catch Up’ sessions and Forest School sessions
· We offer a Breakfast Club, run by school staff which is heavily subsidised by the school. This allows parents on low incomes to work outside of normal school hours and not have to pay otherwise high childcare costs
· Tailored support for pupils who require further social, emotional and behavioural aspects of their learning and development is provided. We offer many programmes such as Play Therapy; Speech Bubbles and Forest Schools.
· We have a Child Welfare Lead and Home School Liaison Officer who support our children and families around all matters relating to attendance and punctuality. This includes first day absence calls; attendance panels and liaising with other agencies.
· The Child Welfare Lead and Home Liaison Officer provide a family service in the school library after school to improve engagement with pupil premium children and families. Our Home School Liaison Officer is released weekly to deliver Webster Stratton Parenting Courses alongside LA colleagues
· Our Deputy Head teachers provide targeted academic support for Year 6 and EYFS pupil premium pupils, closing the attainment gap between PP and all pupils whilst increasing levels of progress.
· A dedicated teacher to be used to deliver an intervention programme, ‘The Meadows’ tailored towards pupil premium pupils who are working academically below age related expectations and for pupils with social and emotional needs. Pupils from across all age groups can access this provision
· A dedicated Year 5 teacher is in post to support in closing the attainment gap for pupils, with a particular focus on PP pupils, within the core curriculum. This takes the form of an ‘extra class’ each morning being run
· Pupil premium pupils in Year 6 to receive 1:1 or 2:1 tuition from a qualified teacher to support them in achieving their full academic potential.
