Background
With the changes to eligibility for Pupil Premium funding our current level receiving this is now 14%.  However, we have a vast number of children who disadvantaged or delayed and fall just outside of Pupil Premium support criteria.  As a school we organise to ensure all of these children receive the support they require.  As such our Pupil Premium funding supports a much wider allocation from the school’s normal budget and notional SEN funding.

Commentary
At Bidbury Infant School, Pupil Premium funding is one part of a much larger programme and allocation of resources used to support children and their families at our school.

We allocate a significant amount of our resources to a range of intervention programmes to ensure all children make maximum progress at our school. These programmes include access to a Home School Link Worker, a reading recovery LSA, emotional literacy support assistants and other trained staff to support specific academic needs such as speech and language therapy and language development and maths skills.
We also employ an additional LSA in each year group (taking the number to three in each) to ensure that interventions can be carried out each and every day and to support in focus Literacy, Numeracy and Phonic sessions.
