‘A Stepping Stone into the Future’

Pupil Premium

Impact of Pupil Premium and Other Funding

 

Assessment

During the academic year 2015 to 2016, we used levels related to the new National Curriculum alongside Are Relate Expectations (ARE) in order to assess children’s achievement. Since September 2016 we have used ARE in order to set children’s targets and also to monitor their progress and attainment,

Action

At WDPS we utilise Pupil Premium to provide a Teaching Assistant (TA) in each class each morning and to provide bespoke interventions for individual children and for groups of children. The school has also invested in Lexia, RM Maths and RWI in order to combat any inequalities between Free School Meal (FSM) children and those children not in receipt of FSM.

 

Teachers complete a Class Profile Proforma at the beginning of the year to ensure they are aware of the needs/circumstances of all children including the FSM children.
Teachers are given time for 1 to 1 meeting times with children (Assertive Mentoring) to ensure all children are aware of their targets and that they also know what they have to do to make progress. Teachers then share these targets with parents at Open Evenings.
