What this does

Targeted Children

Cost

Smaller class sizes

We are funded at 27 pupils per class. The school chooses to keep its teaching classes around the 18 – 24 and funds a full time class teacher and a support member of staff to ensure:

· a greater number of children have adult support during the day

· there are not so many books for each class teacher to mark so they are marked in more depth in literacy and maths

· work can be more carefully differentiated with smaller numbers

· small group support can be carefully targeted during lessons

Year groups 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6

Kids Company

Kid’s Company work covers:

· speech and language therapists
