- We ensure learning and teaching opportunities meet the needs of all Flitcham children. A key priority is to ensure that gaps in performance are narrowed and all children make at least expected progress.
- We ensure that appropriate provision is made for children who belong to vulnerable groups, including socially (and rurally) disadvantaged.
- We recognise that not all children who receive free school meals (FSM) will be socially disadvantaged but also not all children who may be socially disadvantaged are eligible for FSM. There for at Flitcham we will use funding to support any group of children following a need analysis. NB As a school we have a low % or socially disadvantaged children.
- Pupil premium funding will be used to address the issue of ‘’narrowing the gap’’ for all groups of children and support learning and enrichment experiences.
In 2014 – 2015 we received £9100
Funding enabled us to:
- Buy additional hours for 2 Teaching Assistants time which enabled us to:
-allow the teacher to offer more targeted personalized teaching in maths
-Intervention groups in phonics and spelling and additional Guided reading sessions
-provide breakfast club places/after school clubs for all children and offer archery which was a particular interest for children generating pupil premium
Teaching assistants cost :
In year2 cost was /3 £5130, in year 4/5/6 cost was £3264
Remaining amount supplemented clubs costs.
- Improved attendance- now above NA at 97.2%
- 100% pass – children in KS1 re- taking Phonics Assessment
- At the end of KS1 all children met targets and made expected progress except one child in writing who had only been in school for two terms. There were no children at the end of KS2 who generated funding.
Due to very small groups of children who generate pupil premium funding we do not give detailed information the website, however this is available in school .
