Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
Pupil Premium (includes Services Premium)
The premium is used to support children's individual learning, such as additional SEN support, resources in school or extension or challenge activities for the more able children.
The premium for 2019-20 is 40,592. The majority of the funding will be used to continue to employ teaching assistants who will work in the class during the morning to provide additional support for the children as well as delivering intervention support in the afternoons. These interventions are offered to any child who we feel will benefit from that extra input.
We also use the money to purchase resources and to provide nurture support.
We run booster classes after school for 10 weeks in the spring term for year 6 pupils to prepare them for tests later in the year.
Parents of children with pupil premium funding will be offered financial support with educational visits, as needs arise.
Here is our Pupil Premium Strategy for 2020-21. This strategy states pupils' attainment in 2019-20, based on teacher assessments due to COVID and identifies key barriers to learning. It also shares how the school aims to spend the money this year. Included is a document highlighting the proposed spending of pupil premium for 2020-21.
Last year's premium 2018-19 of £43,140 was used to support children's educational needs through individual & group support or through resources purchased. The biggest cost was seconding Mrs Harris for a year to become Phonics Lead and Pupil Premium Champion. Unfortunately due to COVID, statutory assessments did on happened but teacher assessments clearly indicated that our Phonic data would have been above national.
Here is the Pupil Premium Strategy Statement for Norton CEVC Primary School 2019-20 and a flow chart to show the impact of our spending.
