PPG Support Plan Summary 2017 – 2018
We are targeting the bulk of the funding available on improving academic outcomes for children in school who are entitled to Pupil Premium Grant by:
Staff being aware of the children and their entitlement, and discussing their progress with Senior Leaders throughout the year at Pupil Progress Meetings, in order to ensure that funding is targeted strategically to meet their academic needs.
Annual meetings with parents to seek their views on priorities for their children. These meetings are organised more frequently when appropriate.
1:1 and small group interventions with our Learning Support teacher Mrs Sarah Roberts. These sessions include activities that focus on Literacy and Numeracy skills, social skills, mentoring and coaching - as appropriate!
Specific interventions, for example we use programmes such as Better Reading Partners when appropriate, with Teaching Assistants. Additional support from Teaching Assistants in class is also organised for those who need this kind of support.
Resources aimed at improving attainment and progress for individual children are purchased, such as sets of reading books, books to read at home.
Nurture Group provision is organised for children who benefit from focused support with settling in, establishing relationships, gaining self confidence or self regulation, learning codes of behavior and establishing attachments at school. Children from Reception class are currently accessing this provision.
We also use an element of the funding to enhance broader educational aims:
Supporting children with social and emotional needs through small group work, Protective Behaviours work, counselling, play therapy
Supporting families with wrap around care such as holiday club and lunch club fees
Funding extra-curricular clubs to enable children to take part in a wide range of learning experiences
Funding all workshops and visits for which parents are asked to make a contribution at school
Supporting families with uniform, book bags or transport needs: if we think it could help improve attendance, attitude or relationships, we are happy to help.
If a parent or teacher comes forward with a funding need that we feel would support a child, we are always happy to consider other opportunities. Funding is targeted at individuals and their needs: this can cover a very wide range and we regularly assess the impact of our strategies and see if there is anything we can improve.
