2018-19 review of pupil premium grant at Cracoe & Rylstone

At Cracoe and Rylstone Primary School, we were allocated £3,960 for the academic year, 2018 – 2019.

We use this amount of funding to support the needs of the current eligible children; due to small numbers, summary of barriers to educational achievement can be reported face to face by the EHT’s and/or Base Leader.

This funding was allocated in the following ways with the primary aim of ensuring that the pupil made good progress and were offered equality of opportunity in all aspects of their learning:

  1. Provide small group and one to one sessions to run for a minimum of one term to meet the specific needs of identified pupils. (£1, 000)
  2. Purchase of resources to support the learning and progress of the pupils’ individual needs. (£1,000)
  3. Subsidised school trips and enrichment activities.
