Pupil Premium Spending
Our pupil premium funding has been used to provide a range of additional support for our children and these interventions, along with quality first teaching have started to have a positive impact on children’s attainment and self-belief.
Through targeted interventions we are working hard to eliminate barriers to learning and progress. One of the schools aims is to ensure that ALL groups of pupils make good progress in order to reach age related expectations as they move through the school.
Increasing Parental Engagement has also been a focus at the school. A range of information sharing approaches have been introduced successfully across the school, with more planned.
Please have a look at our Pupil Premium Strategy for the current academic year.
How will the school measure the impact of the pupil premium?
At Christ the King RC Primary School, the usual cycle of data collection and the monitoring and tracking of the cohort’s attainment, will be used to inform pupil progress and enable the early identification of need, support and appropriate intervention. Pupil Progress Meetings will take place termly and will include the Head/Deputy Head, the relevant Assistant Head, Teachers and Teaching Assistants, where possible.
At each milestone, the school will review the impact of actions taken and will plan for how the funding will be specifically allocated over the next term. When selecting pupils for Pupil Premium target groups, the school will look at all pupils across the school. There are some pupils who are not eligible for PP who will benefit from these groups if their needs are similar and we believe progress can be made towards individual targets.
Pupil Premium Funding and the impact of this is a regular item on the governors’ School Finance and Curriculum committees.
Designated staff members in charge:
Mrs A.Deacy(Headteacher), Mrs N.Malone (Deputy Headteacher)
Nominated governor: TBD
