Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
Barriers to Learning
The main barriers to learning that children, eligible for Pupil Premium, face at Arley Primary School are:
- Speech and language difficulties
- Lack of parental confidence to support their children in their learning.
- Limited access to on-line resources, books and other opportunities for learning outside of school.
- Poor provision of out of school activities, clubs etc within the local community that parents could take their children to.
Use of Pupil Premium Funding
- Speech and language specialists and training for staff
- Family partnership, Achievement for All project, Inspire Days and Family Learning. These build home-school links and help to provide parents with the skills and knowledge they need to support their children.
- Resources bought by school that can go home with children.
- After school clubs, Residential visits, educational trips, theatre visits and art/music workshops. All of these activities ensure that all pupils have the opportunity to experience life outside of school and their local community. Sports clubs help us to promote healthy lifestyles and to develop skills and interests that a child can pursue throughout his/her life.
This is largely through the monitoring of individual children's progress, but also through observing and identifying improvements in confidence and attitudes to learning
