Purchasing particular resources
All our work through pupil premium will be aimed at accelerating progress and breaking down barriers to learning that have been identified in order to move children to age related expectations. This will initially be in Maths, English and communication.
Pupil premium resources will also be used to improve outcomes for the more able disadvantaged pupils in order to diminish the difference against outcomes nationally.
How Impact will be measured:
Evidenced based interventions - before and after impact
Pupil Progress meetings each half term will inform impact on progress and attainment through class room interventions,1:1 etc. and will inform next steps
End of term standardised tests will also inform teacher assessment throughout the year
As part of Bury's Strategic School Improvement Fund project, we took part in a peer pupil premium review alongside 2 other local schools. This took place in the Autumn term. A copy of the report can be viewed below.
The impact of our spending will be published once assessment data is available at the end of July 2019.
