Pupil Premium Strategy
Pupil Premium funding targets additional money at pupils who are entitled to free school meals as well as looked after children.
Schools have the freedom to spend the Premium, which is additional to the underlying school's budget, in a way they think will best support the raising of attainment for the pupils in this category.
In 2017 - 2018 GANF will be allocated the following Funding
Ambergate - £70,000
This funding will be used to build on the successes of last year with the ultimate aim for 100% of eligible for pupil premium students to achieve their CASPA and National progression guidance target for the end of the year.
Whole School Strategy
As a school we recognise that there is not a one size fits all strategy that will ensure that all children flourish.
However we also know that certain whole school strategies will benefit all children – especially those eligible for pupil premium students.
The whole school strategies that will be used in 2017-2018 are as follows:
· We will work with the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) and Lincolnshire Learning Partnership on their Mobilise project. The current research is looking into using feedback to improve learning. Through the research it will support staff with considering delayed and immediate feedback, self and peer assessment and providing pupils with meaningful and challenging feedback. The research will allow pupils to benefit and improve their learning including eligible for pupil premium students
· Eligible for Pupil Premium students will be targeted in all staff planning to ensure they are targeted for extra support in each lesson across the curriculum.

Impact of Pupil Premium
Pupil premium students made outstanding progress during the 2016/17 academic year with The additional support given to the pupil premium students has allowed for this to take place.
The extra teacher to support Pupil premium students has been a great success and has ensured that on average pupils that were part of the programme made between 3 – 6 months on their reading age.
The rebound sessions have also been hugely beneficial with 100% of pupils who accessed this achieving their targets for physical development which in turn allows for greater curriculum access.
Impact of Yr 7 Catch Up
