Pupil premium allocation, use and impact on attainment
The School receives an allocation of money for every child who is entitled to the Pupil Premium.
The main barriers to educational achievement in our school are children not having effectively developed their basic skills. We have developed a set of Reading Interventions in order to enable children to rapidly improve their basic literacy skills.
For the academic year 2019/2020, Crosshall Infant School Academy Trust received £51,247 (please see attached strategy statement). This money was spent on funding our READ (Read,Enjoy,Achieve,Develop) Project. Our READ Project includes a variety of interventions to support children who need additional help in learning to read throughout the school. We track the progress of the children participating in our READ Project and data shows they make accelerated progress.
It is our intention in 2020/2021 to continue to support the READ Project, using Pupil Premium monies to fund staff and materials for this initiative. We have been allocated £29,968 so far for the months September 2020 to March 2021, the remainder being allocated later in the year. We will continue to track the progress of all children participating in our READ Project and use the data to measure the impact of our Pupil Premium expenditure. We review our Pupil Premium strategy annually in July.
If you apply for free school meals for your child, and tell us that you are on low income, you should secure significant additional funding for their school (Pupil Premium).
