Nature of Support 2016/17

At Greenwood Primary School, the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is used to provide targeted provision for PPG eligible pupils from Years 1 to Year 6.

The PPG is used to provide additional support to pupils eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) and pupils who are classified as `Looked After’ (LAC). It is also used to provide additional support to pupils who have been eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) in the last six years.

The additional support is provided to the pupil groups above who meet the following criteria:

  1. The child is working below aged related expected levels in Reading, Writing or Maths.

  2. The child is not making expected levels of progress in Reading, Writing or Maths. The expectation is that all pupils make two levels of progress from KS1 to KS2.

The additional support focuses on the curriculum areas of Reading, Writing and Maths. The support takes a variety of formats including:

  1. Experienced senior teacher supporting targeted FSM groups.

  2. Specific maths interventions aimed specifically at PPG pupils.

  3. In-class Teaching Assistant support, including 1 to 1 and group support.

  4. Small group provision delivered by a member/s of the Teaching Assistant team.

  5. P2b emotional counselling service.

  6. Speech & Language therapy – speech and language difficulties are proven to have a long term effect on academic progress.
