Pupil Premium 2021/22

In 2021-2022 the school was allocated £34,800 for COVID-19 Recovery Premium.

This funding was allocated to interventions for pupils following analysis of pastoral factors through Multi-Agency Team planning and assessment. The interventions are taking place during the Autumn Term 2021, Spring Term 2022, and Summer Term 2022. The impact of these interventions is reported to the Provision and Wellbeing Committee of the Governing Board, and is reflected in case studies for evidence of impact.

Introduction

The Pupil Premium 2021-2022 priorities are part of a new 3 year strategy to 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. We have utilised the DfE Nov 2021 strategy guidance and this was approved by our Governing Board.  

Our Challenge Partners Peer Review confirmed our monitoring and impact measures for the 20-21 strategy implementation. 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:

  • Communication and interaction resources 
  • Outdoor learning resources and opportunities to bridge gaps in community access through the pandemic 
  • Whole school targeted literacy offer 
  • Meaningful exposure to learning in the community within the school provision through on-site specialist workshops and residencies 

Monitoring progress:

  1. Throughout the term through the Leadership Mentor monitoring & evaluation process
  2. Through the Pupil Progress and Wellbeing (PWB) Committee through data analysis and case studies, included within Terms of Reference.
  3. Through the Finance, Personnel, and Premises Committee on financial regulations and meeting strategic plan.
  4. Through External Evaluation and Peer Evaluation (e.g. Challenge Partners Review)
  5. All pupils in 2020-21 met their Pupil Premium targets. Transition matrices and case studies pre-covid-19 and post covid-19 lockdown tracked their progress. Provision and Wellbeing Committee have assessed the data analysis and critically analysed case studies to confirm that all pupils met their targets.

Pupil Premium 2020/21

In 2020-2021 the school was allocated £61,200 for COVID-19 Catch-Up Grant Funding.

This funding was allocated to interventions for pupils following analysis of pastoral factors through Multi-Agency Team planning and assessment. The interventions took place during the Autumn Term 2020, Spring Term 2021, and Summer Term 2021. The impact of these interventions is reported to the Provision and Wellbeing Committee of the Governing Board, and is reflected in case studies for evidence of impact.

The Pupil Premium 2020-2021 priorities are part of a 2 year strategy to 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.

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 and specialist therapy sessions to support the development of communication, cognition, independence and life skills..
  • Work with partnership organisation such as The@rical and RADiate.

Monitoring progress:

  1. Throughout the term through the Leadership Mentor monitoring & evaluation process
  2. Through the Pupil Progress and Wellbeing (PWB) Committee through data analysis and case studies, included within Terms of Reference.
  3. Through the Finance, Personnel, and Premises Committee on financial regulations and meeting strategic plan.
  4. Through External Evaluation and Peer Evaluation (e.g. Challenge Partners Review)
  5. All pupils in 2019-20 met their Pupil Premium targets. Transition matrices and case studies pre-covid-19 and post covid-19 lockdown tracked their progress. Provision and Wellbeing Committee (March 2020 and October 2020) have assessed the data analysis and critically analysed case studies to confirm that all pupils met their targets.
