At Kingsway Junior School we use our pupil premium funding in a range of ways.
Teaching assistants are funded for additional hours to support children in personalised and small groups as well as pre and post teaching throughout the school day.
Support is offered through a range of initiatives such as extra curriculum sessions in Maths and English and support for children to attend school trips and school journeys.
Pupil premium children are supported individually to develop their interests through enrichment sessions such as drama.
Pastoral support and a focus on attendance is funded through pastoral and behaviour support staff.
Having reviewed the gap in attainment between pupil premium children and other children we have an action plan which focuses on overcoming the barriers that some children face. Providing more targeted support within the classroom will be achieved through TA and Teacher support. Where there are social and emotional barriers we are investing in ensuring some members of staff are trained to work on supporting the children to overcome these barriers. We also invest in external support in certain cases.
We focus on the individual and will continue to highlight individual barriers that may prevent a child realising their potential, whatever that barrier may be.
