Pupil Premium 2013 - 2014

Moss Hall Infant School

Pupil Premium Expenditure September 2013- July 2014

This is a breakdown of how we allocate our Pupil Premium funding from our school budget. This is funding allocated to the school and is based on the number of pupils who have been eligible for Free School Meals on roll and in the last six years, or who are looked after by the Local Authority.

The Pupil Premium money which Moss Hall Infants receives in our school budget is used to make a contribution to the cost of a range of intervention and support programmes. This support ensures that all of our children are supported in their learning so that they can make the best possible progress. These children are very high priority and form our Virtual Class  which is monitored half termly with the Leadership Team, Class Teachers and the Governing Body. We track the children’s progress through discussions with class teachers at termly meetings, and this enables us to measure the impact of additional funding we receive. The actual costs of delivering high quality learning; providing additional teacher and teaching assistant support, and leading interventions, to enable children to reach their potential, costs significantly more than this amount.

Nature of Support 2013 - 14
At Moss Hall Infant School we believe in equal opportunities for all children, and we aim to provide the children with a wide range of experiences to support and develop their learning. This includes seeing what each child needs at their current point of development in order to move their learning on further. We have used the PPG funding to ensure that pupils receive support to
  • Establish a Necessitous Pupil Fund to support children's attendance on trips and clubs
  • Attend the residential school journey (Y2 pupils)
  • Access Breakfast Club and Playcentre (after school provision)
  • Participate in topic related workshops and educational visits
The PPG funds early support strategies for identified FSM children in developing literacy, numeracy, social and motor skills. Interventions and targeted literacy/numeracy support across the school are provided by skilled Teaching Assistants and Teachers.

Measuring Impact of PPG Spending
We are confident that the experiences we provide for the children at Moss Hall Infant School have a positive impact on pupils’ attainment. Analysis of pupil attainment at the end of EYFS (Reception) and Key Stage 1 (Year 2) over the last three years shows that our pupils have achieved in line with, or above Local Authority and National expectations each year.
We will continue to use the PPG funding to enrich children’s learning experiences and enable our pupils to be confident, independent learners who are developing age appropriate skills.
2012-13 PPG funding was £34, 552
