Funding for academic year September 2017 – July 2018   - Peatmoor Community Primary School

Total funding: £34320 

Identified Issue


How impact is measured


Children can arrive at school late and/or hungry which has an impact on the child’s ability to focus once in school.

After School provision can aid Pupil Premium families in finding employment without the maximum outlay towards childcare.

Our Extended Schools provision can be offered at a subsidy to those Pupil Premium families that need our additional support. Children can spend extra time in a supportive environment and benefit from the equipment and meals provided.

A settled start to the school day will improve focus and ability to concentrate on learning, increasing progress and attainment scores.

Families will have the opportunity to seek employment.

£1425 - Allocated Breakfast Club provision for 5 pupils per year.

£10,032 - Allocated After School Club provision for 4 pupils per year.


Inclusion Manager

A designated adult to coordinate the provision for and care of Pupil premium children. She will act as a learning mentor for them.  She will also liaise with parents and outside agencies where appropriate.

Having one adult to coordinate pastoral support for families, learning interventions for children and to act as a mediator between the family and outside agencies will ensure support is coherent and specific.

£5646.80  - 1 day per week x 38 weeks

Pupil Premium children do not always focus during whole class teaching due to their minds being on other issues.  

A range of individual support and small group interventions will take place in both English and Maths. Some of these will be implemented by teachers and some by teaching assistants. All will be monitored on a regular basis and adapted to meet the needs of the children.    Focussed groups will take place every afternoon to diminish the differences on a daily basis.

Progress in English and Maths will be accelerated and attainment will rise.

£2160.16 (combined)




Additional 1:1 support for 1 child:


£3096.90  (3 mornings for 30 weeks)


£1746 (3 afternoons for 30 weeks)


Teaching assistant will run the Catch Up programme for Literacy.  Children will be screened to find gaps in the above areas then become part of an intensive programme to focus on filling these gaps and moving on their learning. 

The one to one sessions will provide the children with individual time with an adult, giving them the opportunity to have someone to confide in should they feel the need to.

LF 4 hours per week = £1582.32



Historically, Pupil Premium children have not been able to take up a place on our Residential Trip in Year 6 due to low income.

By funding the cost of the Residential Trip, the children can take part in this week long experience. This trip is organised for November to ensure bonds are built for this important year.

The children will feel part of the class, experiencing the team building opportunities on offer. On return, the children will work together to aid confidence and learning for the remainder of the year.

£339 pp - £1695

5 x Year 6 children for 5 days


£100 to supply additional medical supplies for one child

Pupil Premium children, in general, have limited experiences outside school and home.  This is evident in their behaviour pattern, where they are shy and under-confident or seeking attention through displaying extreme non-acceptable behaviour.

Pupil Premium children will be assessed and specifically chosen to attend a two day residential trip to Abbey Home Farm. Follow Up projects back in school will involve extension of Maths and English skills.

This experience will promote confidence, responsibility and teamwork as well as life skills, with the view to the children bringing these qualities back into school to promote their learning.

£1295 – 4 x Year 5 children for 3 days

Pupil Premium children rarely have the opportunity to experience a wide range of reading material.

Additional reading materials (such as comics) will be provided in each class to promote a love of reading. These materials will be specific to the children’s interests.

The love of reading will be evident by the children’s enthusiasm over their reading materials.  Progress within Reading will accelerate as a result.

£420 – 7 classes x £60 per year

In general, Pupil Premium children need support with their social and emotional skills.




Often, parents need support with parenting skills.

Nurture groups will operate during the year, run by trained Teachers and Teaching Assistants, to support many of the Pupil Premium children with their social and emotional skills. Some of these groups involve parent participation too. 

Monitoring of the groups of children will show positive changes in their social and emotional skills which will impact on their learning.


Parents will become more involved in school and seek advice when needed.

£27.98 x 2 = £55.96

£11.49 x 2 = £22.98

£78.94 x 12 weeks = £947.28

At present, we do not have Pupil Premium children taking up instrument tuition due to low income.

Funding will be given to Pupil Premium children to enable them to have access to individual instrumental tuition from Swindon Cooperative.

Apart from having the opportunity to enjoy the art of playing an instrument, the children will feel self-worth, growing in confidence as they realise their abilities.

£700.40 - Allocated to 2 children for one academic year.



There are occasions in school where parents of Pupil Premium children are unable to provide school kit or replace lost items due to low income.

We will pay for the individual needs of Pupil Premium children that are identified during the year by their class teachers. Some examples of this may be:

  • Replacing books and book bags
  • Providing PE kit
  • Replacing water bottles
  • Contributing towards school uniform
  • Books to read at home
  • Swimming

By providing these subsidies Pupil premium children will be able to take part in the wide range of school activities on offer.










£20 x 5 pupils = £100

Pupil Premium children can have busy minds based on home life.  This prevents them learning to the best of their ability.

Provide counselling services/Educational Psychology support and Education Welfare support where applicable

By tapping into these services when needed, children will have the opportunity to feel supported, air their concerns and therefore be able to concentrate more fully within the classroom.


Pupil Premium children often lose out on extra-curricular events organised by our Friends of Peatmoor Committee.

Funding the events so that the children are not disadvantaged; losing out on whole school events

  • Santa’s Grotto
  • Easter Egg Hunt
  • 3 x discos per year

The children will feel included and parents supported in joining in the full life of the school.

  • Santa’s Grotto

£2 x 24 = £48

  • Easter Egg Hunt

£3 x 24 = £72

  • 3 x discos per year

£3 x 24 = £72 x 3 = £216

  • Bingo

£3 x 24 = £72



One of our Pupil Premium children need support to learn how to interact at his own age.

Play therapy sessions will be provided to give the child time to interact and chat with a play therapist.

The child will start to recognise appropriate behaviour and be given an opportunity to discuss issues.

£55 per session x 10 = £550
