Pupil Premium Grant
The purpose of the Pupil Premium Grant is to ensure that eligible children make good progress and to close the gap between these pupils and their peers.
Barriers to children’s learning in school take a number of forms. Some children are disadvantaged due to having lack of appropriate stimulus and/or support at home that may be preventing them from reaching their potential. Some children in receipt of Pupil Premium may also have SEND which will be addressed further within the school.
For some children in receipt of pupil premium the barriers may be social and emotional and support within these areas will be required. For some the disadvantage may manifest itself as a financial one in terms of the children being unable to access extra-curricular activities like their peers.
As the number of children in receipt of Pupil Premium within Stock School is low there are no particular groups that emerge but individuals that all need supporting in their own particular way and for their own individual need. Each child is looked at as an individual and appropriate support designed to ensure they reach their academic potential and are able to access every area of the school curriculum.

Educational Support that was provided by the Pupil Premium Grant in 2018-2019 to ensure educational and financial barriers were removed.
- Children identified as requiring intervention received 1 to 1 tuition to boost progress, attainment and confidence from a qualified teacher either before, after or during school sessions to ensure all those identified could participate at a time suitable for them.
- An additional Teacher was employed one morning a week to support children in small groups and on a one to one basis during mathematics lessons in Key Stage 2.
- Specific financial support was made available to allow children to access before and after school clubs. The cost of residential and day trips was also covered to ensure no child was unable to attend.
- Funding has enabled the school to ensure that every class is supported by at least one part-time learning support assistant to provide support during lessons to vulnerable learners in acquiring literacy and numeracy skills.
- Learning Support Assistants who have received training in specific intervention strategies were able to work with groups and individuals each afternoon.

Progress and Attainment
Progress and attainment of Pupils Premium Children is monitored termly by the senior leadership team, each child is individually tracked on Target Tracker and reported to the school’s governing body.

Support and interventions that were used last year and shown to be beneficial will be continued and in some cases extended to support those in receipt of Pupil Premium.

For this academic year a teacher will be employed for a half day.
- Specific financial support will be made available to allow children to access before and after school clubs. The cost of residential and day trips will also covered to ensure no child was unable to attend.
- Funding has continued to enable the school to ensure that every class is supported by at least one part-time learning support assistant to provide support during lessons to vulnerable learners in acquiring literacy and numeracy skills.
- Learning Support Assistants who have received training in specific intervention strategies are released to support and boost individuals or small groups. Intervention groups will be extended this year during the afternoons to target specific difficulties to accelerated progress.
- Social Skills groups will be added to support the emotional and social well-being of children.
The provision for Pupil Premium expenditure is continually assessed and adjusted as the year progresses by the senior leadership team.
The progress and attainment of children in receipt of Pupil Premium is monitored termly so interventions can be adjusted as necessity dictates.
A full review of the Pupil Premium Strategy will take place yearly at the start of each Autumn Term.
