Nature of Support 2018/19

The funding received from Pupil Premium has been allocated in the following ways

  • Set up, resource and run a daily Nurture Group
  • Training for learning support assistants to develop SEMH support within school
  • Speech and Language training and resources for learning support assistants to deliver 1:1 support
  • Continued 1:1 tuition for vulnerable pupils at risk of falling behind or not making expected progress
  • Additional teacher assistant hours to reduce group size for Read Write Inc groups in KS1

Curriculum focus of PPG

The school has focused its additional support on SEMH (social, emotional & mental health), speech & language, literacy and numeracy through targeted support from additional teacher and learning support assistant hours. This has reduced group sizes to increase individualised input. There has been additional investment in CPD for SENCo and learning support assistants, particularly to build capacity within school to offer pastoral support.
