The main aims of the Pupil Premium are to:
- Increase social mobility.
- Enable more pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds to access the best education.
- Reduce the attainment gap between the highest and lowest achieving pupils.
Schools are required to report how the Pupil Premium Fund has been spent, the impact of this and also details of how the current year’s funding will be allocated.
Our Pupil Premium allocation for this year 2016/2017 is £7180
Hoath Primary School spends the Pupil Premium supporting the needs of our vulnerable pupils. This support can be in the form of one to one tuition on programmes such as AccelerRead AccelerWrite, extra classroom support from a teaching assistant or targeted resources, including ICT. Recently, Ipads have been brought for each class and the Interactive Whiteboards have been updated to aid specific learning needs.
Last year’s Pupil Premium was spent in the same way. Our vulnerable pupils all made at least expected progress by the end of KS2 and achieved the national expectations (Level 4) in all areas of the core curriculum
At Hoath Primary School we believe PE & Sport is an important tool in promoting a healthy and active lifestyle in young children, allowing them to develop the potential to change their lives for the better.
We welcome the Government’s decision to provide schools with additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE), sport and healthy living in primary schools. For the academic year 2016-17 Hoath Primary School has received a total allocation of £8305. We are committed to using this resource in developing high quality PE lessons, alongside greater opportunities for sporting and healthy living activities.
Below are examples of how we have alloacted this funding to benefit the children of our school.
- Purchased new sport equipment for P.E lessons within school.
- Purchased new Forest Schools equipment for outdoor learning.
- Buying in of specialist Sports Coaches to teach sports lessons.
- Employment of a Specialist Sport Coach to teach P.E lessons to all Juniors once a week.
- Buying in of Canoeing lessons/activities at Grove Ferry for year 5 and 6.
- Purchased new playground equipment to enhance behaviour routines.
- To support the running costs of our minibuses (for use to attend sporting events)
