The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers.
Pupil Premium 2017/2018

We have continued to support one pupil at a specialist placement linked to his love of farming and his long-term aim to have a career in this sector. The environment and approach enables this pupil to focus and progress in an environment which he is well-suited to, it de-escalates any sensory aggravations and allows him to focus on his academic progress both on his placement and when he returns to school. Enrichment activities in trips and visits, along with access to technology overcome barriers to learning to assist a pupil with his academic learning. Additional psychological support is available to support the third pupil. This helps him vocalise any concerns and reduced anxiety which could become an inhibitor to academic engagement.
