Pupil Premium at Bowmandale Primary School
We have high aspirations for all the children in our school community and believe that all children should be given the opportunity to reach their full potential.
We seek, as a school community, to provide personalised learning opportunities and targeted support to allow every child to flourish.
The Governing Body of Bowmandale Primary School will ensure that provision is made to meet the needs of all pupils.
Research tells us that the Mastery approach to learning is an excellent pedagogy for all children, but in particular it has been proven to accelerate the learning of vulnerable children, hence our investment to staff training in this approach.
The Growth Mindset approach is also central to our teaching and learning in all subjects, whereby children are given open-ended learning opportunities involving peer teaching and collaborative learning.
This has been proven to make a consistently positive impact on learning, particularly for vulnerable pupils.
Verbal and written feedback is also at the heart of our pedagogy, impacting significantly on learning and progress.
Our priorities for 2017/18 at Bowmandale Primary School are:
To continue to close the gap between pupil premium and non-pupil premium pupils across the school and at national level, especially in writing;
To improve the attainment of pupil premium pupils so that more pupils meet their age-related expectations;
To improve the attendance of vulnerable pupil premium pupils;
To accelerate the progress of pupil premium pupils so that it is in line with non-pupil premium pupils;
To support families with emotional/social/behavioural barriers impacting on pupils’ learning;
To provide extra-curricular opportunities for all pupils, but in particular ensuring that our vulnerable children take up these opportunities.
This provision will include:
A Growth Mindset approach to all learning to build resilience, perseverance and self-belief;
Support and intervention from a learning mentor, behaviour mentor and counsellor with pupils and their families;
Mathletics subscription to boost maths across the school and to support home learning;
Provision of extra-curricular learning;
Targeted early intervention booster teaching sessions taught by a qualified teacher for Y1 and Y6;
A qualified sports coach and behaviour mentor to provide nurture provision for vulnerable pupils;
Targeted Learning mentor to deliver pastoral provision for vulnerable pupils to build resilience;
Same day interventions targeted at pupil premium pupils.
