    Langdon Park School

    Pupil Premium Grant 2016/2017

    The Pupil Premium Grant is funding that is given to schools to support disadvantaged students and is to narrow the gap between them and their peers.

    Funding is allocated according to the number of students in receipt of Free school Meals over a period of six years, the number of Looked After Children and students who have parents serving in the Armed Forces.

    This year we received £935 per student in receipt of Free School Meals.

    Langdon Park School has prioritised the use of the Pupil Premium to be used in the following areas:

    1.     Actions Focused on Learning in the Curriculum

    2.     Social, Emotional and Behaviour Issues

    3.    Enrichment Beyond the Curriculum

    4.     Families and Communities

    5.     Alternative Learning Pathways and Curricula

    Year 7 literacy and numeracy catch-up premium 2016/2017

    The Year 7 literacy and numeracy catch-up premium is funding that is given to schools for each Year 7 student who has not achieved the expected standard in reading and/or mathematics at Key Stage 2. Students are identified from Key Stage 2 data or, where this is not available, from internal assessments at the start of Year 7. Students are re-assessed at the end of the intervention period.

    We received £20,272 for catch-up interventions.

    34 students were involved in literacy catch-up. The interventions included on-line testing of key skills (reading, comprehension, spelling and phonics),the Ruth Miskin programme (Fresh Start, Fresh Start Comprehension and/or Language & Literacy), MyCognition and the use of IDL software for Dyslexia intervention.

    11 students were involved in numeracy catch-up. Interventions included 1:1 and small group specialist support, the use of ipads and numeracy apps along with regular work on mymaths.co.uk to develop number skills.
