Our school's strategy

School Aims
We aim to ensure that every child leaves Frodingham excited about learning and determined to succeed. We want to equip them with confidence, resilience and a passion for justice and equality. These qualities will enable them to thrive and to champion kindness and fairness at all stages of their future lives.
The targeted and strategic use of Pupil Premium funding will support us in achieving our aims.
Principles
• We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all pupils.
• We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups. This specifically includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are addressed.
• In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who are eligible for free school meals, (or have been eligible in the last 6 years) are socially disadvantaged.
• We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. We therefore allocate Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils that the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.
Pupil Premium funding will be allocated following annual needs analyses which will identify priority classes and groups.
Provision
We have a range of provision in place to support children who belong to vulnerable groups, including those who are socially disadvantaged. This provision has the full support of the Governing Body and includes:
o Providing small group work with an experienced teacher focussed on overcoming gaps in learning
o 1-1 support
o Self regulation strategies supported by the learning mentor and positive strengths work
o Additional teaching and learning opportunities provided by teachers, TAs or external agencies
o Additional support for assessments, training and advice from specialists such as speech therapists, educational psychologists etc.
o Access to therapeutic interventions and advice
o Paying for activities that broaden the curriculum
o Provision of after school activities
All our work funded by the Pupil Premium will be aimed at accelerating progress so that the vast majority of children leave Frodingham at, or above, the national average. We also aim for every child to make progress that is good or better, so that they leave having achieved at least age related expectations or better.
