 Abercrombie will receive £61,700 Pupil Premium funding FOR THE YEAR 2019/20.

 

Abercrombie takes a whole school approach to raising standards, closing gaps and addressing barriers to learning. During 2019/20, the Pupil Premium Grant will be used primarily to support disadvantaged children to make sure gaps between groups of children close and that opportunities are provided for children to enhance their learning provision and aspirations. Funding will also be used to provide intervention and support that was designed to make sure gaps are closing and standards are being raised for all children across the school.

The PPG grant will be used specifically to pay for outstanding intervention teaching in Maths, Reading, Writing (including spelling, grammar and punctuation) and to part fund our Family Resource Worker. These spending decisions support the school’s priorities for development as outlined in the school improvement plan. The exact nature of interventions and opportunities funded by Pupil Premium has been and will be determined after rigorous data analysis of each child’s progress and attainment undertaken by staff termly.

All interventions are chosen carefully to tackle underachievement, address barriers to learning, and support more able pupils with the ultimate aim of closing any gap in attainment between groups of pupils / national performance in these areas and enriching the learning experiences of the children.

Funding will also be spent to support individual pupils and their families further to provide them with enrichment or wellbeing opportunities that without additional intervention, they may not have accessed.

In addition, Abercrombie’s PPG fund provides for additional activities such as access to after school clubs, breakfast club and after school care.

It will also be used to provide EHO to families and children by means of a Family Resource Worker. A significant barrier to learning and attainment is due to the number of PP families with emotional and social issues, which hinder achievement and participation in learning. These must be supported/addressed if the child is to be fully engaged in all aspects of school life and be an active learner.
