Pupil Premium

At Theddlethorpe Academy the current proportion of children receiving Free School meals 19% of our Foundation Stage 2 to Year 6 pupils are receiving Pupil Premium Funding.

Our funding for 2016/2017 is £30,360

We have high aspirations and ambitions for our pupils and we believe that no child should be left behind.

When making decisions about using Pupil Premium Funding, it is important to consider the context of the Academy and the challenge faced. Common barriers for pupils in receipt of additional funding could be for example, less support at home, weak language and communication skills, lack of confidence, more frequent behaviour difficulties and attendance and punctuality issues. There may also be complex family situations that prevent children from flourishing. The challenges are varied and there is no "one size fits all".

Our main objective in using the Pupil Premium Funding is to ensure pupil premium children achieve to the best of their ability and are prepared for the next stage in their learning. The impact of the funding will be measured in terms of progress and attainment and will be completed in September 2017.

What we will ensure:

  • A high profile is given to pupil premium pupils
  • All staff are accountable for the progress of pupil premium children

The money is used by the Academy to:

  • Organise one-to-one sessions and small group teaching for some students to support their progress in English and Mathematics.
  • Increased staffing to address the shortfall in English and Mathematics skills.
  • Subsidise educational visits to broaden horizons and raise aspirations.
  • Fund specialist teachers in Music, French and PE.
  • Increase pastoral support for vulnerable children.
  • Purchase resources to develop pupils' English and Mathematics skills.
  • Purchase resources to develop pupils' musical skills.
