Objectives of Pupil Premium Spending
When making decisions about pupil premium funding it is important to consider the context of the school and the challenges arising from this. Common barriers for FSM (Free School Meal) children can be less support at home, weak language acquisition and communication skills, lack of confidence, more frequent behavioural difficulties and attendance and punctuality issues. There may also be complex family situations that prevent a child from flourishing. However the challenges are varied and there is no single solution. We work hard to identify individual barriers to learning, ensure equality of opportunity and provide targeted support so that children reach their full potential.
Our main objective in using PP funding is to diminish the gap in achievement for ‘disadvantaged’ children. Through targeted support we are working to eliminate barriers to learning and increase progress. We analyse our data rigorously and examine the impact of any work we do with children.
The school receives funds for disadvantaged pupils through the Pupil Premium Grant. Pupils entitled to Free School Meals, Looked After Children, Post Adoptive Children and those of Service Families are all entitled to benefit from the provision of this funding.
We use the funds to employ a trained TA (Mrs Cork) to provide support including emotional and well-being, 1:1 and small group support, specific resources to pupils, sessions for parents and to support the cost of school activities where a voluntary contribution is requested from parents.
Some of the other Pupil Premium provision we have is:
- 1:1 individual support and small group work
- Extra phonics sessions
- SEN support
- Breakfast and after school club fees
- Trips and visits – expect to be funding 50% for PP children wanting places on residential trips
- Speech and Language Therapy
- NESSY Intervention (English Support)
- Time to Talk Intervention (Speaking and Listening & PSHE)
- Opportunities for pre-teaching across the curriculum with a focus on Maths and Writing
- Lego Therapy (Social Communication Group)
- Handwriting Intervention
- Bug Club online reading and comprehension programme
- Access to a school Chromebook to compete online remote learning and any extended home school projects

Impact on participation and attainment
- All children from Nursery to Year 6 are taught a broad and balanced range of sports throughout the year, to include: rugby, football, basketball, cricket, rounders, athletics, dance, gymnastics and tennis.
- This year, we have introduced Tennis, Cricket and Athletics to key stage 1 and 2
- In a typical week, all children from Nursery to Year 6 receive over 2 hours of sports. 1 hour per week is taught by a specialist PE instructor.
- Children actively engage in their PE lessons and acquire good fundamental skills.
- Historically, in inter-schools competitions, Antingham and Southrepps Primary School have competed extremely well, and against much bigger schools too.
- Participation in after-school sports clubs is not yet as high as we would like, but these clubs are relatively new and need more time to become embedded. Since the start of the Summer Term we have offered a multi sports after school club, tennis, rounders and football.
- We are planning on introducing a lunchtime skipping, yoga and netball club for the academic year 21/22.
- It is our aim that once swimming begins again, 100% of Year 5 and 6 children meet the national curriculum requirements for swimming
