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.
The Pupil Premium is used to support and develop language and communication across the school and embed our integrated therapeutic approach. The majority of our pupils have severe learning difficulties and language and communication difficulties. This funding has an enormous impact on the curriculum and a positive impact on the communication skills of students across the school.
