Working Together - Learning For Life
Thank you very much for visiting our exciting new website, we do hope you find that it gives you a good flavour of the happy, friendly learning environment at Abbey Park First & Nursery School and also access to the important information you may need.
Abbey Park First and Nursery School is located in the heart of Pershore, and enjoys a beautiful setting overlooking the Abbey and its park. The vibrant school campus is shared with Abbey Park Middle School, to which nearly all pupils transfer at the end of year 4 and Blossomvale Children’s Centre.
The Staff and Governors believe that happiness and confidence are paramount and every individual child is nurtured here.
We consider very carefully all aspects of our children’s development during their important years with us – intellectual, creative, social, physical and emotional. We encourage children to collaborate, to consider the needs and feelings of others and to celebrate diversity.

How We Use the Pupil Premium
In April 2011 the Department for Education introduced a new funding programme for schools, known as the ‘Pupil Premium’. Each year those pupils in receipt of free school meals receive additional funding to support their learning in school, in 2011 this amounted to £8,600, in 2012 £25,543 and this year £36,900.
Pupils from Reception to Year Four attend intervention sessions on a weekly basis at different times throughout the year; they take place four days each week, morning and afternoon. Intervention groups vary in size from one to one up to six pupils, and focus on areas of the curriculum specific to the needs of those pupils attending; the aim to improve attainment and progress within Literacy and Numeracy.
Intervention programmes that have taken place so far have included:
Phonics Boosters – KS1 & EYFS. Up Levelling Writing – KS1 & 2.
Writing, Grammar and Punctuation – KS2. Numeracy – KS1 & 2.
Mental Calculations – KS2. Reading comprehension – KS2.
Sessions usually run for a half term and vary in length from twenty minutes to three quarters of an hour. Progress of individual children attending these intervention sessions will be shared with parents at our Parent Consultation Meetings, but additional information can be obtained at any point on request.
During the academic year 2011-2012, the KS1 children who were eligible for free school meals (FSM) made extremely pleasing progress, as a result of our focused interventions. Their average points progress in Maths and Reading were well above expected at 7 points and above in Writing at 5 points. Children in KS2 also made pleasing progress last year with an average points progress score of 3.0 in Maths and Reading and 3.3 in Writing.
Our additional Pupil Premium funding this year has enabled the school to increase the amount of Teaching Assistant support hours in each classroom and from Easter we have appointed Mrs Pratley one afternoon a week to monitor the progress of pupils eligible for FSM and provide additional support.
