  • £300 per child for children of service personnel.


How will we monitor the progress of Pupil Premium children in 2016/17?

At Plumcroft we use the schools current assessment procedures to track the progress of all pupils. We also have a provision map and the facility to focus on identified groups in order to closely track and monitor specific children’s progress. Senior leaders and phase leaders have regular meetings with all teaching staff. During these meetings strategies and interventions are discussed in order to close the gap between non – pupil premium and pupil premium children.

The following activities and interventions, which are partly funded by Pupil Premium money develop children’s well- being, self –esteem, confidence and academic progress.

  • Counselling sessions
  • Anxiety group
  • Fischer Family Trust
  • Speech and Language Assistant
  • Lunchtime directed clubs for vulnerable children
  • Forest School
  • Reading Recovery
  • Funding for trips
  • Interpreter
  • Music Lessons
  • Funding for after school clubs


The success and effectiveness of these interventions are monitored by

  • Child’s voice – In order to gain the child’s voice we will sometimes discuss the effectiveness of the support with individual children
  • Analysis of the behaviour log
  • Anxiety screeners
  • Counselling feedback reports
  • SEN meetings
  • Progress in a musical instrument
  • Parental feedback
  • Improvement in attendance figures
