Allocation and strategy

At Bishop John Robinson Cof E Primary School there is a whole school commitment to making sure all pupils have the same opportunities. We are determined to ensure that all of our children achieve their full potential by eliminating potential barriers to learning. For our pupils some of these barriers include; language and vocabulary skills, understanding early mathematical concepts and mathematical reasoning, low self-esteem and confidence and enrichment opportunities and experiences.

How the funding will be spent

Through targeted interventions and whole school strategies, we are working hard to eliminate potential barriers to learning. These interventions and strategies support children to know where they are in their learning journey and with developing and strengthening the skills they need to progress further.

Our funding priorities for the academic year 2020-2021 fall into these key areas:

  1. Learning and the curriculum
  2. Social and emotional support
  3. Enrichment within and beyond the curriculum
  4. Parents and families

Learning and the curriculum

  • Additional English and Maths interventions
  • Online Homework support
  • Additional 1:1 and small group reading support
  • Teacher and TA led interventions
  • Specialist Speech and Language Support from a Speech and Language Therapist
  • Quality first teaching and resources
  • Staff training and CPD

Social and emotional support

  • In school ELSA (Emotional Learning Support)
  • Development of Calm Zone within the Wallder Room
  • Use of Circle Time, PSHE discussions and sharing concerns
  • Review by School Council of effectives of whole-school ESMH support

Enrichment within and beyond the curriculum

  • After school clubs
  • Funding support for experiences that would be otherwise unobtainable
  • External workshops and performances
  • Outdoor Learning spaces (including our Trim Trails and Woodland School)

Parents and families

The strategy is reviewed termly and its impact is measured through our termly formative assessment process as well as during half-termly progress meetings.
