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.
In May 2017 school increased teaching staff and moved to three classes full-time. In September 2018, the amount of Pupil Premium Funding reduced dramatically. As a school, we felt it was important to utilise the staffing we currently have, in order to support the children with the most need.
|Educational residentials||To enhance the curriculum, ensure inclusion and equality, to give the opportunity to experience new and challenging activities and to experience the social aspect of staying away from home.|
|One to One Support||To help and support children in reaching their full potential in Literacy and Numeracy. 1:1 counselling and nurture groups. Family advice and support.|
|Focus interventions||Reading intervention and structured spelling, Nessy, funky fingers and fine motor skills, catch up maths. External assessments and advice from specialists.|
|Increasing staff expertise||Providing training for staff.|
|Resources||In some case resources have been purchased e.g. schemes, technology. For example, we have recently purchased the 'Happy Secrets' - Choose to Cope Programme.|
