Objectives in spending PPG:
To raise the Attainment and Achievement of pupils so that children can make at least expected progress and close the gap enabling pupils to reach age-related expectations through:
- Support the provision of Teaching Assistants across the school in order to boost the children’s attainment in reading, writing and maths
- Continue to employ a Family Liaison Officer
- Contribute towards the costs of Educational Visits
- Maintain small class sizes by the addition of two new teachers in KS2
- Provide a HLTA for early years to provide intervention for EYFS

Impact Outcomes to date:
Teaching Assistants. Year 2 children identified as under achieving following September assessments have been targeted for small group intervention.
From 16/9/13 onwards selected Y2 children have been learning in small groups/1 to 1. Each group has a 6 week block in which they must make progress. 24 children have benefited during the year from this intervention. 12 of those children were in receipt of pupil premium funding. All
children made significant progress in areas of literacy identified. For example one child knew 57 key words on entry to Y2. By July he knew all 217 key words and all his letters and sounds. He had read his way through 3 Oxford Reading Tree levels and passed his Phonic Screening test.
Family Liaison Officer. All children. Improve attendance, reduce anxiety and behavioural issues, support for parents.
Attendance has improved to 94.5% in 2013/14. Attendance at Sunnyside can be adversely affected by the needs of some of our children who have to attend medical appointments on a regular basis. There have been no permanent exclusions at Sunnyside for the last 14 years. In 2013/14 there was one fixed term exclusion of 3 days. Further evidence of case studies showing the support offered to individuals and families is available from the school.
Educational Visits. All Children.
A residential visit to Robinwood was organised in December 2013 for Y5/6 children. The cost of £100 was still prohibitive to some families in receipt of FSM. A £50 subsidy was offered to enable access for 27 of the 53 children attending who were able to take part in all areas of the
three day course. This improved PSHE, SMSC, team building and cooperation ensuring that all children achieved their full potential and stretched their capabilities. The direct effect on the children’s academic performance was measureable on their return to school with increased
levels of confidence and independence.
Teachers. Y4 and Y5/6 to maintain small class sizes so allowing integration and personalisation of the curriculum.
A new year 4 teacher was added to our team in 2013/14. The academic performance of pupils in Y4 improved as a result. The following results are for our mainstream cohort of children and those integrating into the mainstream cohort on a regular basis and measure the % of the cohort
at Age Related Expectation at the beginning and end of the academic year:
Pupil premium/FSM children. 14 children
Non Pupil premium/FSM children. ? children
A new year 5/6 teacher was added to our team in 2013/14. The academic performance of pupils in Y5/6 improved as a result. The following results are for children who took SAT tests. This was 35 of the 46 children in the cohort. 16 of the 35 children were in receipt of pupil premium whilst 19 were not.
Pupil Premium children achieveing L4+ in English and Maths 11/16 = 69%
Non Pupil Premium children achieving L4+ in English and Maths 12/19 = 63%
HLTA. Reduce language deficit for children entering school. Nursery and Reception.
In early years children are identified for early intervention following scrutiny of Nursery Assessments. The area of focus for intervention is communication and language and how this affects early reading development. There were 45 children in the Reception class cohort in
Autumn 2013/14. Following assessment of their skills in communication and language 26 of 45 children (58%) were felt to be at the expected standard or better. The 26 were split as follows:
Pupil Premium children achieving expected +9/45 or 20%
Non-pupil Premium children achieving expected + 17/45 or 38%
Those children who were not part of this group and therefore not at the expected standard or better formed our intervention group. Their starting and finishing points in Reception class were as follows:
|Child A||16-26 months. 3D||6E|
