How we plan to invest our funding

How are we planning to invest our funding?

 

We recognise our disadvantaged pupils have different barriers to learning and are often less likely to be supported at home. Weaker language and communication skills, poor attendance, punctuality, low self - esteem, no confidence and resilience can all impact and lead to low aspirations. Meeting the needs of each pupil was paramount to the decisions made in how we distributed the money.

 

Promoting pupil’s social and emotional well- being so that they grow in confidence plays an important role in supporting pupils in class. It aids progress so that the gap against the national average in reading, writing and maths closes. Quality teaching and intervention has made a significant difference, pupils are able to work in smaller groups and can build

stronger relationships with adults. Research has suggested early intervention can be effective so we have increased our speech therapist time to enable more pupils’ opportunities to develop their language and communications, as well as train staff in school to further support language rich intervention

We analyse the impact of our strategies to ensure they are helping to close the gap between the attainment of our disadvantaged children compared to other children both in school and nationally. All of our disadvantaged children benefit from the strategies that we have in place.
