We will be receiving £3,900 this year. This money is being spent on an additional part time member of staff to work specifically with our children.
Baseline shows that the main barriers for learning this year are managing feelings and behaviour and Mathematics. We are therefore commencing nurture work with our children along with a whole school approach on Mathematics with interventions for groups of children.
At baseline 2016 we could see that Communication and Language was a barrier to our EYPP children’s learning, in particular speaking. This in turn was having a significant impact on Literacy. In both areas of learning 100% of our EYPP children were working below age related expectations.
We received £6000 Early Years Pupil Premium.
To support the children we employed 2 members of staff on a part time basis to work on speech and language programmes. We also bought some games which were used during the intervention sessions.
The impact of this saw 64.9% of our EYPP children at or above age related expectation by the summer term in the Communication and Language area of learning and 76.7% at or above in Literacy.
