1) Our reviewed and new Pupil Premium Strategy Statements details how we have targeted our pupil premium funding at evidence based strategies, to best support our disadvantaged, vulnerable and Service family pupils to maximize their progress and be fully included in all aspects of school life.
2) Our Covid catch up plan identifies how funding from the DfE has been carefully targeted to support pupil's accelerated progress, particularly of our disadvantaged pupils, following the Covid-19 pandemic. This includes use of school led tutoring by a qualified teacher.
3) Our SEND information report is part of Hampshire’s local offer and identifies how we effectively support pupils with Special Educational Needs or Disabilities.
4) Please complete our Service Family update form to inform the school of any change in your family circumstances, such as if a parent is being deployed or is changing the frequency they are at home e.g. working away during the week. Also of any changes that could be coming up in terms of moving out of the area. The information from this form will go directly to Nikki Giles, Inclusion Manager, who will make sure that all relevant staff are aware and additional pastoral support organised as required.
5) Please find a booklet explaining how Service families are supported in Hampshire.
6) St. James' CEC Primary School has been awarded with a Bronze English as an Additional Language Excellence Award from EMTAS (Ethnic Minority Travellers Achievement Service) for our provision in place to support our pupils who have English as an Additional Language. We are now working towards the silver award. Part of this work has been further developing diversity in our curriculum and promoting the different language our families can speak.
7) Our Inclusion reports detail the attainment and progress that all our Inclusion pupils (pupils with SEND, disadvantaged and vulnerable pupils, Service family pupils and pupils with EAL) are making, the support that has been put in place and how the effectiveness of this has been monitored.
8) Our Provision Map identifies how we are using our TRES strategies (Task Design, Resources, Environment and Social Emotional and Mental Health) to best support high quality inclusive teaching in class, as well as outlining the additional interventions that we have on offer.
