Pupil Premium Statement 

2021 -2022 (£4,035)

Salary of SENDCo TA who supports premium children as well as premium children is £12.24 per hour. Premium children receive 30 minutes support each day which equals 95 hours per child per year = £3,488.40. School pays for after school gymnastic lessons = £252 per year and trips during the course of the year £60 and uniform and school bag £60. Total: £3,860.40. £174.60 in reserve for any relevant requests from parents or resources school needs in the classroom to support these children.

The main barrier to educational achievement faced by some eligible children at school appears to be lack of support from parents or inability to support children from parents. School produces support plans which help parents give the relevant support to their children at home. These support plans are reviewed termly or more regularly if required.

Children benefit from one to one support daily for 30 minutes or small group sessions. Appropriate resources are purchased as and when to support these children. Assessments were made at the beginning of the Autumn term and one out of three children were age related. The children's progress will be monitored regularly.

 2020 -2021 (£1,320)

Salary of SENDCo TA who supports premium children is £12.10 per hour. Premium children receive 30 minutes support each day which equals 95 hours per year= £1,149.50. School pays for the  after school gymnastic lessons = £252 per year. Total: £1,401.50. 

The main barrier to educational achievement faced by eligible children at school appears to be lack of confidence, the children are taught to believe in themselves which in turn motivates them to learn.

Children benefit from one to one support five times per week for 30 minutes 1 to 1 or small group. Appropriate resources will be purchased to support the children throughout the year. Children have support plans with achievable targets which are reviewed once per term or more often if necessary especially during COVID-19. Children were assessed in the Autumn term and were not at age related expectations. With the personalised 'catch up' programme it was expected that there would be accelerated progress and the children would achieve at least age related expected attainment. Pupil premium children were age related expectations before lockdowns. Regular contact by phone was made to the children and families reported that their well being was good.  

Review Autumn 2021: One of the two pupil premium children left in the Summer 2020 at age related expectations. The one remaining pupil premium child was offered a place in school during lockdowns but parents refused the offer, there is asthma in the family. Family was offered a laptop but family said that they were coping with technology. Regular phone calls were made to ensure the well being of the child and child was regularly seen on live booster group sessions on ZOOM. There was little work produced from the child despite offers from the school to support the family. Food vouchers were arranged for the family. The child is now back in school and is on the catch up programme with daily support from the SENDCo TA. It is hoped that the child will be age related expectations by the Summer when further formal assessments will be completed. The child has happily settled back into the school routine. 

The above strategy is working so there are no current plans for change.

Review Autumn 2021: Child is now at age related expectations and is targeted to achieve expected level for Reading and Writing for SATS 2022 and for Greater Depth for SATS 2022
