Pupil Premium Spending 2016 / 2017

Nature of Support 2016-17

At Pinner Wood School, there is a tailored package of interwoven support which emerges from our ‘core practices’ which is used to close the gap between disadvantaged pupils and their peers as well as providing wider enrichment experiences. Nature and frequency of support is determined by pupils’ identified needs, following termly Pupil Progress and Provision meetings with class teachers and tracking systems led and monitored by the Deputy and Assistant Head Teachers. 

Areas of identified spending will include bought in professional services which focus on pastoral support and focused teacher support. This approach is supported by the research paper, ‘Supporting the attainment of disadvantaged pupil: articulating success and good practice’ produced by the National Foundation for Educational Research which identifies several building blocks to success in regards to PP spend. The report states:

‘More successful schools tended to have more extensive social and emotional support strategies in place, including developing close links with mental health services, creating a ‘social care’ hub within the school, providing counselling services and parent liaison staff, alongside teaching and learning interventions.’
