  • Providing small group work entitled to Pupil Premium funding with an experienced teacher focused on over coming gaps in learning to help them make improved progress and to raise their standards of achievement.
  • 1:1 support, where a need is identified, for pupils entitled to Pupil Premium funding e.g. Reading, speech and language, nurture groups and phonics.
  • Additional teaching and learning opportunities to pupils entitled to Pupil Premium funding provided through trained TA’s and external agencies to help them make improved progress and to raise their standard of achievement. E.g. Music tuition, play therapy, swimming lessons, ‘Time to Talk’ session to build confidence and friendship club, funding trips and after-school clubs and wrap around care.
  • Acquiring effective materials for pupils entitled to Pupil Premium funding aimed at raising standards. E.g. providing uniform, homework resources, access to IT resources, providing of books for home and school use.
