At St Andrew’s we believe that access to quality first teaching is the best way for children to achieve. This includes building ‘Cultural Capital’. We believe, confirmed by our work in the summer term 2019 with Chris Quigley that children’s background knowledge; including the types of activities and experiences that parents provide for their children in ‘non-disadvantaged households’ are a crucial factor in academic success.
At St Andrew’s, there are a small number of children whom attract the additional funding from the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG). 5 in St Andrew’s. Therefore, as well as the focus on quality teaching and provision, children need to be known as individuals and their needs assessed and then addressed.
St Andrew’s School Pupil Premium funding 2020-2021: £10,070
Quality First teaching
The school has maintained 2 classes in KS2 despite low numbers of pupils. Children receive more individual time with their teacher. In KS1 there are 2 classes for under 30 children. This means that children can receive individual support and additional teaching time.
Mental Health and Well-being
The school employs a family support worker to provide additional support for children experiencing difficulties. These include 1:1 or group session as well as support for parents.

|Quality First teaching||The school has maintained 2 classes in KS2 despite low numbers of pupils. Children receive more individual time with their teacher|
|Attachment Awareness training||Disadvantaged children are more likely to experience attachment difficulties and find building relationships with people challenging. By raising understanding of these children, the care and support given to them is more informed and effective.|
|Mental Health and Well-being||The school employs a family support worker to provide additional support for children experiencing difficulties. These include 1:1 or group session as well as support for parents.|
|Date of review||Summer 2020|
|Measuring impact||The number of incidents recorded tracks behaviour and the success of the strategy|
Individual children and families self-referred or school referred (with consent) have been provided with bespoke, early support. This either enables onward referrals to be made to get more specialist help or has solved problems successfully enabling children to focus better on learning.
