For the year 2012 – 2013 our school received £14,620
The percentage of our pupils known to be eligible for free school meals is: 46%. The national percentage is 19.3%.
During 2012- 2013 we used the Pupil Premium in the following ways:
Employing a School Counsellor for half a day per week to offer pupils emotional and behavioural support
Staffing and resourcing After-school and Lunchtime clubs
The purchase of early reading (communication) resources
Impact of the Pupil Premium:
The number of behavioural incidents has fallen by 42%
The number of pupils accessing support has increased.
The number of pupils accessing extended school activities in years 7-11 is 69%
We now have a consistent school-wide approach to Objects of Reference which supports communication for our children with complex needs.
