    A positive picture from 2018/19



    This academic year (2019/20) is £342,820.

    Some of the main barriers to educational achievement that the disadvantaged children in West View Primary School face, are:

    • Behaviour
    • Attendance / punctuality
    • Lower than average starting points on entry
    • Very low oracy skills


    We plan to spend our Pupil Premium funding to address these barriers through:

    • Employing additional teachers and teaching assistants to target Pupil Premium pupils during 1-1 tuition and small group interventions, and by reducing some class sizes
    • Providing enriching experiences such as theatre visits and residentials which children would not otherwise access
    • Funding the work of the Social Inclusion Manager and her team of support staff to work closely with vulnerable disadvantaged children to improve their attendance and behaviour
    • Providing support for families by funding school uniforms, adult learning, transport and educational support materials to aid learning at home
    • Providing off-site education (e.g. from West View Project) for vulnerable children to build self-esteem and social skills, impacting on their well-being and attendance

    We spend our Pupil Premium on this due to our successes using these approaches over the last few years and the standards and progress which these children have achieved as a result (see additional documentation outlining our data successes).


    As a school we will measure the impact of the Pupil Premium funding by:

    • Evaluating outcomes at the end of Early Years, KS1 and KS2
    • Monitoring and reviewing practices within school
    • Sharing excellent practices across our Trust and further afield
    • Using the Transforming Tees High Achievement Review documentation to RAG rate our practices and evaluate the impact of spend

    We will review the Pupil Premium spend termly at Full Governing Body Meetings.
