There are a variety of funding options available that our school and pupils are able to take advantage of. Please see below for a few of the main ones.
What is Pupil Premium?
Publicly-funded schools in England get extra funding from the government to help them improve the attainment of their disadvantaged pupils.
Evidence shows that children from disadvantaged backgrounds generally face extra challenges in reaching their potential at school, and often do not perform as well as their peers.
The pupil premium grant is designed to allow schools to help disadvantaged pupils by improving their progress and the exam results they achieve.
Crowdys Hill Pupil Premium Strategy
Our aim is to ensure that our pupils are not disadvantaged as a result of their socio-economic context.
We believe that with the correct support all pupils can achieve their full potential, as long as the provision meets their needs.
Our ultimate objectives are to:
Remove barriers to learning created by poverty, family circumstance and background.
Narrow the attainment gaps between disadvantaged pupils and their non-disadvantaged counterparts both within school and outside.
Ensure ALL pupils are able to read and develop a joy for it.
Develop confidence in their ability to communicate effectively.
Enable pupils to look after their social and emotional wellbeing and to develop resilience.
Access a wide range of opportunities to develop their knowledge and understanding of the world.
Our school serves Swindon as a SEN provision school for ages 5-19.
In order to achieve our objectives and overcome identified barriers to learning we will:
Provide all teachers with high quality CPD to ensure that pupils access effective quality first and SEN teaching.
Focus funding on reducing identified barriers to learning.
Provide targeted intervention and support to quickly address identified gaps in learning including the use of small group work and 1:1 tuition.
Target funding to ensure that all pupils have access to trips, residentials and irst-hand learning experiences.
Provide opportunities for all pupils to participate in enrichment activities including sport and music.
Provide appropriate nurture support to support pupils in their emotional and social development.
Our strategies will change and develop based on the needs of individuals and through a range of interventions and support e.g ELSA, THRIVE, CAMHS and TaMHS meetings.
We will ensure that we help pupils to reduce barriers to engagement, to provide personalised teaching, learning and assessment meets the needs of all of our complex needs pupils.
When reflecting upon data and impact leaders will shape pupil premium plans with specific intervention and support for individual pupils. Through 3 reviews we will ensure that pupils will have voice to reflect as part of an on going conversation about support for learning.
