Pupil Premium Strategy
We currently have very few pupils eligible for Pupil Premium. The funding is based on historical data and therefore we have used the money to maintain our morning classes of 15 pupils in each class from Reception to Year 2. This continues to aid the escalated progress of pupils’ achievement in Literacy and Numeracy.
We have also been able to employ a teaching assistant to provide intervention teaching for identified pupils requiring specific additional teaching.
Funding is also used to subsidise or fully pay for any contributions to trips, extra-curricular activities or extended school provision.
If you think your child may be eligible for Free School Meals (irrelevant of the new Universal Infant Free School Meals scheme) please either contact the School Office on 01303 862375 (your call will be treated confidentially) or follow the link to the Kent County Council’s website.
Every child registered for FSM provides the school with additional funding to be used in the manner above.
The Government have committed to funding schools to support the provision of PE/Sport. Each school will receive £8000 plus an additional £5 per pupil each year.
At Stowting this will mean around £8400 a year.
To gain best value and to maximise the impact for our children we use the money to:
· Employ a specialist PE teacher to deliver high quality PE provision for pupils.
· Use our specialist PE teachers outstanding practise as a model for class teachers further improving their practise and ensuring the improvement in PE provisions is sustained.
· Provide appropriate staff training
· To buy into the Sports Partnership widening our sporting opportunities
· Further develop extra-curricular sports provision.
· Develop assessment strategies to further children learning in PE.
· Participate in intra hub sporting competitions.
Participation rates in extra curricular PE activities and pupil enjoyment and achievement of the subject is evidenced by competitive success, pupil voice and data showing that in excess of 92% of Key Stage Two pupil take part in extra curricular sports clubs provided by the school or in the community.
