Have you identified how to spend your pupil premium?
Using the pupil premium in support of the residential experience is a valid use of this grant. We can help you with the gathering of evidence and provide you with a confirmation statement for those students who you support in this way to support your evidence base and Ofsted outcomes.
The focus of the Pupil Premium is now around outcomes for disadvantaged children, so less emphasis on the cost and more on the educational benefits achieved. A good starting point is to consider early intervention programmes that will support learning, improve attainment and deliver improved outcomes for your pupils but make sure the interventions you choose are evidence-based.
Schools are required to publish online information about how the Premium have been used. This will ensure that parents and others are made fully aware of the extra support provided to students and its impact on personal development as well as academic attainment.
Outdoor Education Case Study - empowering young people, developing skills and behaviours that last a life time
- Take Year 7 on a 4 night visit for young people in their first half-term to develop confidence and trust between the young person and school. Building this relationship is likely to deliver improved attendance and attainment for a vulnerable young person as developing significant relationships is known to be one of the most important ways of securing success at school for vulnerable young people.
- Subject specific deep learning weeks and weekends support in-depth focus for GCSE groups as well as gifted and talented learners. You can come to us to develop any subject but our setting lends itself particularly to geography and biology field-work.
- Use map reading and geocachng one day or two night programmes to develop skills that set up children and young people for life.
