Pupil Premium Strategy
Our Pupil Premium strategy for the academic year 2019-2020 is focused on two whole school areas:
We employ a ‘Pathway’ system to identify and target support for our learners. The principle is oulined in the following diagram:
In order to improve the attendance and engagement of our most vulnerable learners, we will be dedicating the majority of our Pupil Premium funding into supporting Pathway 1. The rationale is to safeguard & engage them, improve their Social, Emotional & Mental Health (SEMH), prevent NEETs (Not in Education, Employment or Training) and promote positive desitinations, whether Post 16 or to other mainstream/specialist schools.
In addition, it must be stressed that we are very proud of all our students and pay close attention to their individual and sub-group academic performance. Many students are transient and our pupil numbers do fluctuate so comparing data sets over time can be problematic. However, analysis of Pupil Premium performance is outlined below for the previous two academic years.
