At Nunthorpe Primary Academy, we have high aspirations and ambitions for our children and we believe that no child should be left behind. We strongly believe that it is not about your background but your passion and thirst for knowledge, and your dedication and commitment to learning that make the difference between success and failure, and we are determined to ensure that our children are given every chance to realise their full potential. Pupil premium funding represents approximately 5% of our budget; £43,840 in 2016/17 and this policy outlines how we will ensure it is spent to maximum effect.
Pupil Premium Spending
Our pupil premium money has been used to provide a range of additional support for our children and these interventions have had a significant impact on children’s attainment.
We are delighted with our KS2 results which show that the school is going from strength to strength. The results reflect the hard work of staff, excellent partnership working with parents and a determination to ensure that EVERY child succeeds.
Our key objective in using the Pupil Premium Grant is to narrow the gap between pupil groups. As a school we have a good track record of ensuring that pupils make good progress, but historically levels of attainment are lower for FSM (eligible for free school meals) – this is also a national trend.
Through targeted interventions we are working to eliminate barriers to learning and progress. Children who start school with low attainment on entry are targeted to receive targeted support through termly action plans to ensure that they make accelerated progress in order to reach age related expectations and as they move through the school.
Targeted support is being provided through one-to-one and small group tuition in all year groups and additional support is targeted at classes with a significant percentage of pupils entitled to Pupil Premium Grant.
Developing parental engagement is a priority. Parents of PP pupils are invited to meet teachers at specially arranged meetings in order to build a better understanding of the curriculum, attainment and know-how to support children at home.
