How the PPG grant was spent in the academic year 2016/17
We ran a number of intervention strategies for individuals and groups that include: 1:1 tuition (additional to other 1:1 tuition), phonics, Catch Up, Toe by Toe, Early Literacy Support, Further Literacy Support, Springboard Maths, Bubble Time and emotional First Aid.

We provided 3 additional part time LSAs to support the development of basic skills and to help close the attainment gaps, daily support from an emotional first aider, daily support from a further LSA in phonics and basic skill development and additional targeted release time for our inclusion leader to focus support on closing attainment gaps for individuals and groups.

This grant was used to resource and staff the above interventions.

We used part of the grant to support our access to FAST (Family And Schools Team) for early intervention family support.

In addition to this we supported financially the access of class visits/visitors, residential learning, enrichment visits and extra-curricular clubs.

The impact of PPG spending in the academic year 2016/17
We measure the impact of these additional interventions through our school assessment tracking system. Interventions are carefully chosen by the class teacher in consultation through pupil progress meetings with senior leaders and the inclusion manager. If expected progress is not being made by the pupil then the intervention is changed.

At the end of Key Stage 2 2017 of our known eligible children for free school meals 100% achieved the expected standard in combined maths, reading and writing, 100% in maths, 100% in reading, 100% in writing and 89% in EGPS.

The main barriers to educational achievement faced by pupils eligible for the PPG in the academic year 2017/18
A broad range of social, emotional, and family dynamic issues that impede on the full support, engagement and learning focus that our other children have which leads to successful progress.
Nature of support from September 2017 to address these barriers
Part of the grant will be used to provide staff in our inclusion team to offer 1:1 tuition in English and maths, specific individual interventions to remove barriers to learning and emotional First Aid.

Part of the grant will be used to support our access to FAST (Family And Schools Team) for early intervention family support.

In addition to this we will support financially the access of class visits/visitors, residential learning, enrichment visits and extra-curricular clubs.

How the school will measure the impact and effect of expenditure of the PPG grant in the academic year 2016/17
Eligible pupils will be tracked termly through pupil progress meetings and their interventions and provision mapping will be adapted in accordance with their individual needs
