Use of Funding



After School reading club


Children attend after school club where they develop social skills and are withdrawn for 15mins by a TA to have targeted 1 to 1 reading time. They focus on phonics, high frequency word recall, comprehension and word reading. This has boosted children’s confidence in reading and has enabled them to access classroom activities with increased independence. We have also focused on higher level questioning for the more able readers so they can develop a deeper understanding of the text.

Additional teaching assistant time to provide in class support and interventions:

Precision teaching

Daily reading

Number interventions (Plus 1)

Small group phonic/blending intervention

Memory fix, concentration activities.



Children have received targeted interventions either as part of a small group or on a 1 to 1 basis.

Precision teaching is having a great impact on phonics and high frequency word spelling across the school.

Plus 1 maths intervention is enabling children to gain a stronger basis of number understanding.
