Focus of PPG spending 2015-2016

The main areas identified for focus for pupils receiving PPG was to look at those areas where pupils were currently Working Towards the Expected Standard. This resulted in supporting: Phonics in Y1 and 2, Maths, Reading and Writing through Y2 -6. Self-esteem and confidence building were also appropriately targetted.

In 80% of targets set for pupils outcomes had improved from Working Towards the Expected Standard to meeting the Expected Standards. We shall continue to look to improve the remaining targets in the coming year.

The impact on pupils so far is as follows:

​All our Year 5 & 6 pupils take on whole school responsibilities, eg. School Council, Eco Warriors, which allow them to gain confidence in speaking in front of large groups, leading competitions and representing the school at events

There have been no exclusions and pupils' behaviour is praised on numerous occasions by places we visit or visitors to our school

Pupils' confidence and self-esteem is raised by learning a musical  instrument and taking part in performances
