PUPIL PREMIUM STATEMENT

Pupil Premium is a funding pot from the government which is issued to schools to help provide for disadvantaged children, to ensure that they make the best progress they can. 

At Yox Valley partnership Federation schools we make the following provision:-
Funding a support teacher who works 1-1 with children across the school on speech and language, literacy and numeracy programmes 4 mornings a week
small group work with children who need additional help with reading and writing (Wave 3 intervention)
Teaching assistants supporting children in class, either individually or in small groups to support development of literacy and numeracy skills
Training for staff on teaching phonics, reading and maths

Pupil Premium is generated through numbers of children on low income who apply for Free School Meals.
Parents are encouraged to ask at the school office for confidential advice on making application for school meals, so this funding can be accessed.
