Sep 2018 – July 2019

Our Pupil Premium projects and their expected impact:

The Growth Mindset Project

The year we will be continuing to develop our children’s Growth Mindset. This will enable them to face challenge with enthusiasm, set greater aspirations and achieve higher results. Growth Mindsets will be acknowledged and awarded in Good Work Assembly with our "Stretch Gromin" certificate. Focus will be on all our children to increase their growth mindset, but also on our Pupil Premium children who may be displaying a lack of motivation and aspiration within school and for their academic work. Group sessions from TAs and Teachers may be required to achieve this or from older, more responsible pupils through positive mentoring.

 

EXPECTED OUTCOMES:

  • Increased outcomes in Reading, Maths and Writing.

  • Improved independence.

  • Improved attitude towards work.

  • Deeper appreciation of positivity.

  • Increased responsibility.

 

Academic Resilience and Self-Confidence Coaching
The aim of this scheme is to provide children with the ability to cope more resiliently with difficulty and challenge. This will be achieved through classroom approaches, pastoral sessions and through sport. We may also look into having external providers, such as Skills Force, to visit to offer resilience and problem solving activities.

 

EXPECTED OUTCOMES:

  • Increased ability to think more resiliently.

  • Improved ability to build effective relationships.

  • Strength to manage emotions better and become more self-confident.

  • Higher effectiveness to build upon their strengths.

 

Development of Aspirations and Careers Interests

Children, including our Pupil Premium children, will be given access to specific employment industries to learn the finer details of and qualifications necessary to obtain a career in that field. Pupils will be surveyed to identify the careers they are interested in. 

 

EXPECTED OUTCOMES:

  • Children will have their aspirations raised.

  • Pupils will identify the skills and qualifications needed for a specific career path they are interested in.

  • Increased engagement with school and learning.

 

Outdoor EYFS Space (Nursery)

  • More appealing outdoor area as a learning resource. 

 

Pastoral Support (including access to Waveriders)

Children are picked for intervention after careful analysis of data.
