Pupil Premium: 2012 – 2013

Pupil Premium for Winterbourne Junior Girls’ School

April 2012- March 2013

£71,400

Last academic year we achieved 88% (unvalidated at this stage) of pupils at Level 4+ in English and Maths at Key stage 2.

Winterbourne Junior Girls’ School has 32% of pupils who are entitled to free school meals. This financial year (April 2012- March 2013) there is £71,400 in the budget.

We intend to use the following strategies for narrowing the gap.

  • Additional support in class(15K)

Target any FSM pupil not reaching age related expectations in Reading, Writing or

Maths.

  • School Visits (£10 K)

The school values the opportunity to take children for learning activities beyond the

classroom and the Governors agreed a budget for this.

  • Pupil Kitchen (£17K)

The pupil kitchen the former servery was refitted with sinks and cookers at a suitable

height for the children to use under supervision. The aim is to promote heathly

lifestyle through healthy eating.

  • Learning Mentor (£4K)

The school employs a learning mentor for 6 hours per week.  This time is increased when there is a need to support children with identified problems.

  • Clubs (2K)

A variety of clubs offered to children ranging from cardio tennis, archery, fencing,

football, karate which includes the children being graded and earning their belt,

street dance, art, choir, multi-sports, basketball, cricket, volleyball and tournaments.

Parents are asked to contribute £1.50 per week towards the sessions and the rest is

subsidised by the school.

  • Lunch Club (£2K)

For 4 days a week a midday supervisor is employed to run a lunch club as a reward for punctuality.
