Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium 2017-2018

Introduction

The Pupil Premium 2016-2017 has a priority on ensuring the best support is in place to ensuring progress for the most vulnerable pupils. As a school, we have responsibility for using this funding to ‘narrow the gap’ for this specific cohort of learner. The gap that we are narrowing is:

Our Ofsted Inspection in January 2014 confirmed our on-going commitment to ensuring all learners are progressing with challenging targets. Our Challenge Partners Peer Review in March 2017 and our Ofsted Inspection in May 2017 confirmed our monitoring and impact measures. 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. The strategic plan, allocation of funding, action plan, and impact are monitored by two Governing Body Committees:

1)      Pupil Progress and Provision Committee

2)      Finance, Personnel, and Premises Committee

 

Which gap are we narrowing?

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

The gaps which are being narrowed are identified in each pupil’s ‘Personal Learning Intention Map’ are specifically narrow gaps in the areas of:

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

For the 2017-2018 academic year, this is through part-funding of additional support staff and classroom specific initiatives where an additional adult is funded through placement arrangements (Pansy, Lotus, Lily).  Both are to promote engagement in curricular activities and ensure contextualised progress through staffing during community based learning and community based activities through workshops, trips, and visits.

 

What are we investing in for narrowing this gap?

  • Investing in increased staffing to support meaningful progress with classroom, hydrotherapy, rebound therapy, and community-based learning. This is to promote behaviours for learning and personal/social development.
  • Engagement in enrichment workshops funded through pupil premium which take place over a term (where a class has an additional staff member through specific placement circumstances)
  • Providing specialist resources which then link to the home environment, to promote access to the wider community services or to promote communication/engagement.
