Pupil Premium for 2017-18
Our Pupil Premium figure for the last academic year (2017-18) was £1870. We have used this money to fund transport into school for some of our vulnerable children, which has had a very positive effect on the attendance and punctuality of these children. Our swing data shows an overall improvement of 39% in the attendance of our students compared to their attendance at their previous school.
We have also used some of the money to fund our new enrichment program and cultural passport activities where students are given the opportunity to engage in various activities away from our centre which promote confidence and address other elements of their personal success targets.
We have employed an outreach teacher to deliver education to our most vulnerable students in the community, this has had a very positive impact on the lives of these children and has created another pathway for us to offer to students too anxious or phobic to come into our school. Eight students whose attendance in school had previously been 0% have all engaged in our outreach service and are now receiving education on a regular basis in their home.
