Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.

Pupil Premium Funding

Allocation

2015 - 2016 £403,920

The purpose of the pupil premium is to close the educational gap and to remove barriers to learning.  It is targeted at disadvantaged children.  The amount a school has to spend is based on the number of children entitled to free school meals or have been entitled to free school meals within the last 6 years.

Parents will be aware that  almost all of the children who attend Anglesey will be from Families who are in receipt of benefits due to disadvantage but not all families are eligible for free school meals.  The Governing Body has taken the decision to use the element within our school budget to add to the pupil premium funding to enable all children to benefit from the additional support available.

More information can be found on the DFE website Pupil Premium Page.

How the money has been used.

Funding has been used strategically to speed up eligible pupils’ academic progress.  Funding has supported the employment of additional staff.  This has meant that children have had increased support to ensure they meet their targets.  Some of the additional support has been from Teachers  and some from Teaching Assistants.

  • KS2 have had support from a specialist maths teacher

Funding has been used strategically to speed up eligible pupils’ academic progress.  Funding has supported the employment of additional staff. This has meant that children have had increased support to ensure they meet their targets.  Some of this additional support has been from Teachers and some from Teaching Assistants.

A group of 12 higher attaining Year 6 pupils have benefited from specialist mathematics teaching,  all 12 children achieved a level 6 in the end of KS2 maths tests last summer.

The funding has also been used to support reading in Year 1 through the support of a specialist reading recovery teacher.

Funding has been used to develop the expertise of all our staff in a variety of different areas the main focus has been on active learning, questioning to deepen thinking, maths and outstanding teaching.

During 2014 we will be extending our programme of after school clubs to ensure children have the opportunity to have targeted support in areas they have difficulty.

We are also extending our enrichment programme to give the children a broader education including special visits and workshops e.g. authors, poets and musicians.

 

What Difference Has It Made
Children are much more confident using and applying mathematics.
Year 6  pupils had an average point score in Year 2 of 12.8 and are expected to make 12 points across KS2.  The average increase was 15.3.
This means that children in Year 6 made better progress than children in other schools.
The attainment reached by our FSM pupils was also greater than the national average.
