Pupil Premium Projected Allocation 2016/17




  • 30 pupils attended vocational placements on a daily or weekly basis.  They were all transported to and from the providers, often picked up from home.
  • All of our leavers gained at least one qualification as a result of their vocational programme or input from our Flexible Learning Programme.
  • Exclusions reduced as a result of our newly developed system for behaviour modification and management – from 141 days in 2014/2015 to 108.5 days in 2015/2016.


  • 35 students benefitted from mentoring, counselling or both.
  • 18 students benefitted from assessment and planning from the Speech and Language service.
  • 7 students received one to one intervention to improve their basic skills.
  • A member of staff was allocated to support students in challenging circumstances get to school each morning; this resulted in an improvement in attendance for this group by 2%, and one pupil’s attendance increased by 28%.
