Total PPG grant: £157,500
Children eligible: 128
At Moorside we endeavour to use the pupil premium grant to close the gap between achievement of disadvantaged children and non-disadvantaged.
We have a clear and focused pupil premium strategy - one that identifies areas that need investment - and acts accordingly. Rather than focus on a number of different areas, we have chosen two main priorities: attendance and attainment, and focused the budget on improving outcomes for disadvantaged pupils in these areas.
Attendance and pastoral: (£49,016)
It is self-evident that if children are not attending school, then any spending on teaching and learning will not impact on attainment. Our PPG attendance was flagged up as an area for improvement at the end of the last academic year and this year we have allocated approx. 1/3 of the budget to improving this. As well as local authority support we have used the money to train an internal EWO so this can be a sustained intervention.
Hand in hand with this is the investment we have made in our pastoral team. We realised from self-evaluation that many PPG children had complex needs that had to be actioned outside normal class provision. To this end we have a flexible and proactive pastoral team that deals with issues arising on a day to day basis, as well as providing bespoke interventions for PPG children.
