Pupil Premium

Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.


The Pupil Premium is an amount of money the government allocates to each school, to support all pupils to reach their potential. It is particularly aimed at pupils coming from disadvantaged backgrounds, who may also be in receipt of free school meals, children from service families or children in local authority care.

Linton Infants pupil premium funding for 2015/16 was
£23,020


We used the Pupil Premium for a range of interventions and support services, including:

  • Helping to increase the number of TA hours to improve adult/child ratios and providing extra provision which enables children to secure Literacy and Numeracy skills through small group interventions and in class support

  • Employment of 2 counsellors from The Cogwheel Trust to run play therapy sessions for children who are identified as having an emotional need which presents a barrier to their learning

  • Supporting the enrichment of the curriculum by giving children a variety of opportunities (Entry points, Visitors, Class trips, Enrichment, Music Lessons) that they might not experience otherwise. This broadens the children’s understanding of the world around them; it helps to contextualise their learning and improves their subject specific vocabulary thus levelling the playing field with their peers.

  • Helping to support children in receipt of the pupil premium by providing intervention programmes designed to enable accelerated progress, such as; First Class@Number, Wave 3 phonic recovery, Maths recovery

  • Running extra phonics and reading groups.


    How will this year’s money be spent this academic year?

  • To fund the employment of two counsellors from Cogwheel Trust to run play therapy sessions for up to 6 children. 2 of our Pupil Premium children are already signed up and accessing this support.

  • Helping to increase the number of TA hours to improve adult/child ratios and providing extra provision which enables children to secure Literacy and Numeracy skills through small group interventions and in class support

  • Providing funding towards extra-curricular activities, music lessons, trips to ensure all children have access to the same experiences in life.

  • To continue to provide intervention programmes such as First Class@Number, Wave 3 phonic recovery, Maths Recovery.

  • Provide extra TA hours to ensure children who don’t get support at home are read with regularly at school.
