Pupil Premium at Wiggonby C of E Primary School
(Please note that this information is published with respect for confidentiality because of our small pupil numbers.)
This funding is allocated to initiatives which remove barriers to learning to ensure pupils reach their full potential both academically and socially. In some case it is used to provide staff to work with families.
Funding is used to meet the needs of individuals. Spending increased in April 2014 to include some of the provision below and was maintained into 2015-16. In November 2015 additional 0.6 teaching hours were introduced to split KS2 into 2 classes for literacy and numeracy. In September 2016 staffing was increased to offer additional teacher assistant support and to allow teachers to implement 1:1 support.
