Walcott Primary School Recieved £27,000 in pupil premium funding for the year 2016 /17. Most of the children recieving free school meals are in Foundation stage and KS1. The school has used this money to improve the teaching of phonics and to ensure children recieving free school meals make good progress towards the national target. This is delivered through:
- Enabling the retention of three teaching assistants in morning to deliver small group phonics teaching.
- Retaining four classes (Year three has only six children)
- The school has also used £500 to pay for additional bespoke 1 to 1 counselling by 'CASY My Space' for children with emotional and behavioural needs. A further £400 has been used to provide behaviour mentoring and support from Needbright Solutions. This has focused on working with vulnerable children at risk of exclusion.

The school has received £18200 sports premium. This has been used for the following:
- Additional sports coaching and mentoring of staff: £10000. All classes have one afternoon coaching by a sports specialist.
- After school multi skills / Tag Rugby clubs
- Dinner time sports clubs
- Membership of local school league
- Climbing wall visit in spring term £1000
- Transport to take children to our partner school for inter school competitions: £800
- Provision of a proffesional counsellor to support mental health and wellbeing £1500
- Purchase of a new shed to store new PE equipment £2000
- Purchase of new sports equipment.
The funding has increased participation in after school clubs. The use of coaches working alongside staff is providing CPD with a view to long term sustainability. The current KS2 year groups are small so fielding teams for competition is challenging but uptake in clubs is improving. The use of funding to provide transport to our partner school is improving the options for inter school work. The provision of a contracted counselling service has been very positive and given the school the ability to provide swiftyand timely support for children who have emotional difficulties. The impact on those children accessing this has been excellent.
