Pupil Premium Targeted Support
At Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed School we have looked very carefully at every child who is in receipt of Pupil Premium (including Pupil Premium Plus) funding. This has involved analysing data relating to individuals as well as using other observations on the child’s progress, barriers to their learning, plus any outside school issues that may be affecting the child’s ability to learn.
The outcome of this audit is a focussed plan of targeted support 2016-2017. This plan can be opened below (please take a look). We have identified areas of need to ensure all children make expected progress and continue to, in line with their peers. In selecting our interventions, we have made use of the Sutton Trust Education Endowment Foundation's 'Learning Toolkit'. All of our children, who attract Pupil Premium funding, will receive the support from one or more of these groups.
Termly monitoring will take place so that we can measure the impact of our targeted support to ensure that all children are making expected progress and that their attainment is in line with National expectations or above. Last year’s impact on progress can be seen in the ‘Pupil Premium Progress Table 2015-2016’ below.
