We want ALL children to thrive and succeed irrespective of background.
Pupil Premium (PP) spending at Radford Semele is used to employ a support worker in the afternoons and subsidise LSAs who give dedicated time to each PP child the school.
Our support worker works predominantly to support reading although her role is also highly pastoral and she supports, for example, with homework and classroom integration. Teachers also feed into this timetable as and when is needed e.g. for homework support.
LSA salary is supported by PP funding (we currently have one LSA per class) and as such teachers dedicate significant intervention time to PP children. This is shown on the anonymized intervention maps where PP children are highlighted in green. These are checked against progress and attainment termly by the PP lead (Mr Davoile) and the SENCo. This support is predominantly academic and the intended impact is to support pastorally whilst making a difference to learning to improve progress.
Our link governor meets termly to support and challenge (where appropriate) and meetings are recorded in governor link forms.
