PUPIL PREMIUM GRANT SPENDING

The Pupil Premium Grant is allocated to schools at the beginning of each financial year. The allocation is decided by a fixed amount per child, when the family is entitled to free school meals. Schools are free to spend their Pupil Premium grant as they see fit. The Head Teacher has absolute discretion to decide, using all reasonable endeavors, how best the Pupil Premium be spent to benefit each child.

The Head Teacher will, so far as reasonable and practicable, consult with the leadership team, governing body, all staff and/or other interested parties, to assist her in making a well informed decision.

There is a higher percentage of children at Wellesbourne Primary and Nursery School allocated Pupil Premium than the national average.

Pupil Premium Spending 2019 – 2020
In respect of the academic year 2019 – 2020 the Pupil Premium Allocation is £248,867 (Forecast).Our priority this academic
year is to provide focussed individual and small group support using robust analysis of data to maximise the use of resources.
The Deputy Headteacher, Learning Mentor and SENCO will continue to offer individual support, to children and families, as
needed. This year we are funding additional reading support in Year 1. We have funded a music specialist teacher, and an ICT
specialist teacher. These teachers additionally support intervention work and Early Years Provision.
We fund additional teaching assistants in each year 6, a HLTA in Year 5 to enable a greater focus on reading which has been
identified as a key area. As a result of the funding, are able to keep class sizes low in the majority of our cohorts. It is the policy
of the school, in line with the governors’ directive, to continue to provide good adult role models and specialist teaching,
therefore this year we have introduced yet more sports coaching into our Early Years and Key Stage 1. More opportunities for
extracurricular sports, after school and at lunch time. Additionally, this year we have created more opportunities for lunchtime
and after school clubs, including 2 walking clubs which targets our most vulnerable children, and 5 lunchtime running groups
which target our vulnerable children.
Reading has been identified as an area for concern and this year we are focusing on our younger children. Analysis of
assessment data has shown us that our children struggle to use varied and interesting vocabulary, on occasion due to lack of
experience. We have funded a variety of activities to broaden the children’s’ experience and develop their vocabulary skills.
Additionally, a percentage of the grant will spent on supporting our free school meals families directly as the need arises, and at
the discretion of the Headteacher and governing body.
Finally, we intend to work with appropriate agencies to offer support for parents. With a combination of all these plans we are
sure we will diminish the difference for our pupils in these areas.
