Eastfield Primary Academy

Where individuals are nurtured to flourish

Eastfield Primary Academy, part of the Enquire Learning Trust, opened as a new Academy on 1st September 2013.

Eastfield Primary Academy firmly believes that all individuals are nurtured to flourish and this is at the heart of everything we do. Our aim is for our young people to leave us as resilient and independent learners that have access to a toolkit of skills that they can adapt and use for their next stage in their education. We are convinced that emotional care and guidance goes hand in hand with academic support and every member of the team buys into this under the leadership of the Learning Mentor.

Eastfield Primary Academy is situated in Immingham, 7 miles from Grimsby and Cleethorpes. Currently, there are 192 pupils on roll with a 52 place nursery.

Eastfield Primary Academy is a very popular academy and has an excellent reputation particularly in relation to its nurturing ethos.  The atmosphere in school invites children to learn in many ways not just in the classroom.

 

PE Funding at Eastfield Primary Academy

PE Funding Statement 2014 – 2015

Pupil Premium at Eastfield Primary Academy

Pupil Premium refers to the additional funding provided by he Department of Education for each school. The amount of money given to schools is worked out by calculating the number of children, in the last six years, who have received free school meals or are Looked After Children. Schools are required to publish the amount of funding we receive each year, how this was spent and what impact it has on raising standards.

Our pupil premium for 2013-2014 is almost £85,000

We have plans to use this money to:

  • Support additional catch up for phonics in Y3 and 4 – an area that school is keen to work on
  • Provide additional support for intervention from the learning Mentor
  • Ensure there are daily interventions for targeted children according to IEPs under the direction of class teachers and delivered by the Teaching Assistant for that cohort
  • Enable the Academic Learning Mentor to work at least 80% of the time in Y6 to support learning
  • Enable the Learning Mentor (Nurture Leader) to work in small groups with targeted pupils using the Seeds for Success programme to develop confidence and learning behaviours
  • Provide release time for class teachers to allow them to work with specific groups in KS1 and KS2 – their class will be covered by the Learning Mentor each time and this will provide continuity

 It is expected that all of the above will be specific, targeted, short-term interventions that are tailored to individual pupils needs and may change and adapt regularly to ensure the impact on learning is maximised.

 The following tables show the average assessment results for children who have Free School Meals (FSM) in our school compared to children who have Free School Meals nationally. Ofsted will look at these to see how all groups of children in schools are performing.

In KS1 the expected result is 15 and in KS2 it is 27.
