2016 - 2017
The Pupil Premium is used to support children through staffing, training and resources; to aid targeted intervention plans and also creative projects, extending learning beyond the classroom.
Some pupils who are supported through the Pupil Premium may also have other barriers to their learning; e.g. Specific learning difficulties, external factors affecting well-being, low self- esteem, anxiety, physical factors affecting development, levels of concentration and resilience.
Staff led initiatives include: Maths Recovery; Reading Intervention; Structured Spelling Programmes; Time to Talk; Happy To Be Me; 1:1 subject support and Booster Classes.
Creative projects include: Theatre Experience in School; Young Voices Choir in Manchester; Little Big Sing in Penrith.
The fund allows for the subsidising of Educational Vists to Theatres, Farms, Museums and Libraries, supporting the pupils to extend their learning.
