Pupil Premium 2018-2019

Introduction

The Pupil Premium 2018-2019 priorities ensure the best support is in place for maximising progress for the most vulnerable learners in addition to our core provision. As a school, we have responsibility to use this funding to ‘narrow the gap’ for this specific cohort of learners.

Our Challenge Partners Peer Review in March 2018 confirmed our monitoring and impact measures. Our Ofsted Inspection in May 2017 confirmed our on-going commitment to ensuring all learners are progressing with challenging targets. Both external evaluations confirmed that learners who are eligible for Pupil Premium are not underachieving in comparison with their peers. This is due to our commitment to personalised learning around the holistic needs of the individual.

Which gap are we narrowing?

Swiss Cottage School, Development and Research Centre wants to ensure the gap being narrowed is supporting learners in meeting the aspirational aims identified in the Education Health and Care Plans/Statement for each learner.

The aspirational goals are identified in each learners ‘Personal Learning Intention Map’ and are working towards narrowing gaps in the areas of:

  • Personal Development and Behaviour
  • Independence Skills
  • Communication Skills
  • Cognition and Learning
  • Movement and Mobility
  • Social Interaction

The Pupil Premium Funding will be used in different ways for different cohorts of learners depending on the individual priorities that have been identified. This is to build on the impact from the previous academic year.

What are we investing in for narrowing this gap?

  • Increased specialist support staff for specific classes with a high % of pupils who qualify for pupil premium funding. This will be targeted to classroom-based interventions, hydrotherapy, rebound therapy, additional visits to the leisure centre and additional community-based learning.
  • Targeted support for parental engagement where the priorities will lead to a narrowing of gap through specific training and focused support.
  • Additional resources, intervention sessions, and specialist therapy sessions to support the development of communication, cognition, literacy, independence and life skills.
  • Residential trips, focused visits, and/or horse-riding sessions to support meaningful engagement in the community and contextualised learning opportunities.
