Pupil Premium 2019/20

Three Year Pupil Premium Strategy

Introduction

The Pupil Premium 2019-20 strategy is two years into three year cycle where we have chosen to invest in supporting learners in meeting the aspirational aims identified in the Education Health and Care Plans. Pupil Premium students account for 80% of all students in KS3 & 4.

How we came to this aim

We recognised that the Pupil Premium priorities ensure the best support is in place for maximising progress for the most vulnerable learners in addition to our core provision and that this should be the driving force behind our future planning. 

Our core provision places equal access to support services at the heart of its vision. We believe that all students should have their needs met no matter what their individual circumstances.

Through our internal and external monitoring (Challenge Partners, Specialist Learning Collaborative and the Brixton Learning Collaborative) we are proud to say that that learners who are eligible for Pupil Premium Funding are not underachieving in comparison with their peers.  

What Gap is being narrowed?

As there is no notable gap between our Pupil Premium pupils and their peers academic achievement, we have chosen to invest in supporting learners in meeting the aspirational aims identified in the Education Health and Care Plans.

The aspirational goals are identified in each learners Annual Review and are focused on the schools’ ambition to support students in a holistic manner so that all students can live as independent life as possible.

How is Pupil Premium Funding used?

At The Michael Tippett School we believe that all pupils should have equal access to a wide range of educational and therapeutic experiences. For all pupils to be supported in reaching the targets set out in their Education Health and Care Plans we tailor individualised support programmes which are, in part, funded by Pupil Premium Funding.

What are we investing in?

  • Increased specialist support staff for specific classes with a high percentage of pupils who qualify for pupil premium funding. This will be targeted to classroom-based interventions with an increased SCERTS focus, Attention Autism training and support, hydrotherapy, rebound therapy, specific MDT support and additional community-based learning.
  • MDT targeted support for parental engagement. This will focus on improving consistencies in a range of strategies between home, school and, were appropriate, community groups.  These sessions are planned through joint working practise and include:
  • Additional resources, intervention sessions, and specialist therapy sessions to support the development of wellbeing, communication, cognition, literacy, independence and life skills.
  • Residential trips, focused visits, and/or Ebony horse-riding sessions to support meaningful engagement in the community and contextualised learning opportunities.

Pupil Premium 2018/19

The Pupil Premium Year 1 strategy was reviewed through our internal and external monitoring procedures (School Governors, Challenge Partners, Specialist Learning Collaborative and the Brixton Learning Collaborative).

We are proud to say that that learners who are eligible for Pupil Premium Funding are achieving in line with their peers, as has been the case in previous years.  The majority of our students are eligible for pupil premium funding.

We have measured success by the improved year-on-year outcomes for our EHCP led IEP targets as well as improved outcomes for our holistic progress data. 

Across the school 87% of all EHCP led IEP targets were met, an increase of 4% over the year. 

All but one student made progress holistically.  

There were no notable difference between any groups (such as gender, EAL, Pupil Premium) in either IEP targets or Holistic data .
