Aims and Objectives in spending PPG at Leedstown School;

Raising Attainment and achievement of disadvantaged pupils to at least expected progress through;

o Continued improvement to provision to raise numeracy and literacy levels

o Smaller class sizes

o Ensuring two year groups per class throughout school

o Provision for Personalised learning e.g 1:1 support, reading support, small group work.

Summary of spending and actions taken:

In order to achieve this, this year we have employed another member of staff (an NQT – Newly Qualified Teacher) to teach our Years 5 and 6 children.

This has reduced the class sizes throughout school and has ensured that children in the same Key Stage remain in the same class; there is no overlap.

In addition, Teaching Assistants work closely with very small groups of children and with individual children on specific learning targets.

Teacher for the additional class - £7,200

Resources & Assessment - £2,220

Total - £9,420
