Nature of support  2016/17

Money Spent on initiative

Aim

Mentoring with Inclusion Leader

Children receive at least 2 sessions a week dependent on needs. They are able to seek the Mentor when they need support.  This ensures the children remain within the class for teaching.

Nurture Clubs5

There is a weekly timetable of activities to those children (particularly those who require mentoring) daily from 1 to 1.30pm.  Children are able to self-refer to this group or can be encouraged by members of staff and peers.

Catholic Children’s Society counsellor for children and their families

Additional Educational Psychologist support

Additional staff in Early Years

Senior Leadership intervention support / Progress Meetings/ Phase Meetings

 Measuring the impact of Pupil Premium spending

The school will evaluate the impact on each pupil at the end of each half term. The class data is analysed by the SLT and then the teachers write the ‘Headlines’ for their own class.  These Headlines demonstrate what is being worked on in class to show what is being offered to the Vulnerable Groups and those children not making progress.  Evaluation will focus on academic gains and how pupils’ self-confidence has developed as a consequence of the intervention.

The Inclusion Leader will monitor the data for the Vulnerable Groups which will also include the Nurture and Mentoring Group. This information is reported to the Head Teacher monthly.

Data is collected and informs teacher’s planning. The Vulnerable Groups within class are planned for to ensure that support is designated appropriately.

The Inclusion Leader reports to Governors every term, this ensures the Pupil Premium Champion is accounting for the money and ensuring it is spent appropriately for the good of the children.
