We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all of our children.
We ensure that appropriate provision is made for children who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged children are adequately assessed and addressed.
In making provision for socially disadvantaged children, we recognise that not all children who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged. We also recognise that not all children who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. We reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium Funding to support any child or group of children Hartley has legitimately identified as needing additional support to achieve improved outcomes in learning and/or well-being.
Pupil Premium Funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority groups or individuals. Limited funding and resources means that not all children receiving free school meals will be in receipt of Pupil Premium interventions at one time.
The Senior Management Team will allocate Pupil Premium Funding in order to:
- Establish small booster group sizes thus improving opportunities for effective assessment and accelerating progress.
- Provide small group work with an experienced teacher focused on overcoming gaps in learning, especially in Literacy and Numeracy.
- One to one support.
- For additional teaching and learning opportunities provided through qualified teachers, trained TAs or external agencies.
All our work through the Pupil Premium will be aimed at accelerating progress moving all children to at least age related expectations. A particular focus will be placed on improving Literacy and Numeracy and narrowing the attainment and progress gap between children entitled to Pupil Premium and their peers.
