Pupil Premium Support 2014-15

 

SUPPORT AVAILABLE  DETAILS OF SUPPORT  RATIONALE FOR THIS SCHOOL BUDGET 2014 – 2015
 School Uniform One  set of the basic items available from school per eligible pupil per year including Sweater or cardigan/Tie/Book Bag Uniform contributes to a sense of belonging to a school and is the same for all pupils.  The cost of providing uniform can be a challenge for families and the lack of certain items can make pupils feel excluded.  £2500
 Music Lessons A weekly lesson on a musical instrument including the hire of the instrument.  (Subject to availability and, in some cases, the age of the pupil)  Research shows that children who learn to play a musical instrument not only gain a valuable set of music skills, but also perform better in English & Maths over a longer period.  The cost of music lessons may be the reason why some pupils do not take them up.  £7600
School Trips These are provided free for eligible pupils at the present time. Trips provide additional educational benefits as well as social and cultural experiences. The cost of trips may prevent some pupils from taking part.  £2500
After School Activity Clubs  These are provided free of charge for eligible pupils wherever a charge is made for the activity. Clubs provide additional educational benfits as well as social and cultural experiences.  Charges are sometimes made to cover the cost of providing the activity but this may prevent some pupils from attending.  £500
