Pupil Premium

At St Martha's we have an area that is called the 'Creation Station'. Pupil Premium funding has meant that we have been able to develop and resource this area so that it can be used by teachers and support staff in order that they can provide specific children with the support that they require. 


The 'Nurture Room' is used daily by trained staff and specific children are allocated a time to complete group activities and spend time in the calm, nurturing environment. 


We have been following the Promoting Alternative Thinking Strategies (PATHS) program and have noticed great improvement in the children's ability to understand their own feelings and talk about them too. The impact of this has been noted across the school, the impact of PATHS on pupils receiving Pupil Premium funding (within a 10 month period) is;

18.5% to 23.2% improvement in Social and Emotional Competence

12.2% to 24.1% improvement in Pro-Social Skills

11.7% improvement in Concentration and Attention


Some comments from the children about PATHS:

"I have enjoyed being Pupil of the Day because it makes me feel special"

"I feel excited and happy because my friends and my teachers say nice things about me"

"PATHS is good because you get a chance to talk about feelings/stuff you would not normally talk about. It has helped me to speak to teachers and not keep it inside"
