Principles and Provision

Our school mission is to enable all young people to have the skills, knowledge and experiences to lead meaningful and enjoyable lives, and to optimise life-long opportunities.

The target and strategic use of pupil premium will support us in achieving this aim.

Principles

  • We will identify barriers that impact on pupil learning and progress and seek strategies to address these barriers.  Strategies will particularly include developing language and communication skills but may also involve reducing social and emotional health barriers
  • We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all of the pupils
  • We ensure that pupil premium funding will ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to economically disadvantaged groups
  • Pupil premium funding will be allocated to priority classes, groups or individuals and interventions will happen at appropriate times throughout the year.

Provision

The range of provision for these individual pupils will include:

  • Providing 1:1 and / or small group work with experienced staff members and specialists focused on overcoming gaps in learning specifically related to ASD.
  • Purchasing specific, specialist resources to support work with pupils and to help engineer the classroom environment in order to provide an ASD friendly one.
  • To provide targeted opportunities for pupils related to their individual ASD, academic, and social and emotional needs. These will include: Early Literacy, Social Use of Language, Work study Skills, life-skills, Communication Skills and Counselling.
  • Progress of these pupils will be tracked against individual and personalised targets.
