Learning Support and Catch up funding
National Curriculum Attainment
Pupils are tested nationally in Years 2 and 6.
This will now be a standardised score with 100 being at the expected standard. Pupils will now be referred to as below, at, or exceeding the expected standard for the year group.
Assessment in Primary schools is under development due to the abolition of National curriculum levels.

The school does not use a particular phonics scheme. It follows the letters and sounds curriculum and streams children into phonic groups for daily teaching. A range of reading books are used however the school uses Project X for guided reading. This is so children can practice different reading skills.

Catch up Premium and support at school
We aim to use catch up support funding and our own budget to support pupils in 3 areas.
- Training for staff and resources
- Developing the quality of teaching
- Small group tutoring and additional staffing.
if further school closures continue then the school will invest in after and before school tuition to help the most vulnerable pupils.
Pupils are now being assessed prior to the Easter Holiday which will help plan our provision mapping for the entire school. Additional sessions will take place during the school day. This has begun with well- being coaching and our ELSA programme. In the short term, teaching assistants are being directed to work with pupils requiring catch up and we are increasing teaching assistant hours.
The school has set an objective to narrow the gap between pupils with an additional language in Reading, Writing and Maths compared to other pupils at the expected standard at Key Stage 1
