Pupil Premium

Introduction

We receive Pupil Premium funding for some of our pupils. The money is used to ensure our children receive the best possible standard of care, education, challenge, support and exciting opportunities.

Watch the introductory video to learn more about Pupil Premium funding and how this applies to St Andrew's. Below are some more details about how we will be using this funding this academic year. You can also find links to previous years information.

Pupil Premium 2015/16

How has Pupil Premium made an impact on our pupils?

Staffing and Booster Sessions

The largest spend of the Pupil Premium funding is allocated against staffing expenditure. This enhances the development of our Pupil and Family Support team, which is made up of our Family Well-being Co-ordinator, Mrs Simpson, our Inclusion Manager, Mrs Maher, Teaching Assistant who supports with behaviour management Mrs Hancock and many Teaching Assistants who hold intervention sessions with our pupils. This also includes the support of an additional teacher, Mrs Bowers, who works across Year 5 and Year 6 delivering additional learning sessions to pupils.

Our Family Well-being Co-ordinator works with the pupils and their families to ensure we are supporting all our pupils academically, emotionally and socially. Our Inclusion Manager works with all our Pupil Premium pupils to ensure that the targeted intervention sessions provide a balanced and broad level of support and provision.

As well as working across the whole school both Mrs Simpson and Mrs Maher liaise with outside agencies to ensure that parents/carers have access to the right support at the right time for their child/ren.

Theatre Trips, Residential Trips and After School Provision

EMTAS Ethnic Minority Traveller Attainment Service did a report which revealed some of our children had language barriers as a result of limited life experiences. In response to this and in response to parents asking for more educational visits, we've used Pupil Premium money to subsidise visits to Lledr Hall, theatre trips, other educational visits and we also subsidise our after school sports provision.
