Pupil Premium Strategy 2018-19
Hednesford Valley High pupil premium grant allocation for 2018-19 is £71,060.
The main barriers to the educational achievement faced by eligible students at the school are:-
- Low levels of literacy
- Low levels of numeracy
- Maintain good attendance
- Behaviour during unstructured times.
How Pupil Premium money will be spent to address barriers above:-
- Reading intervention project with targeted students due to low literacy levels.
- To support MLD learners for the linear course of GCSE-mock exams, practice exam questions regularly, revision lessons and packs to go home.
- Early interventions in English and Maths across the school to ensure students make good progress through each year.
- Early identification of students with mental health using the Early Help Referral forms to action early intervention, to support mental well-being.
- Every Child Matters Co-ordinator to carry out Safe and Well checks and work with parents/carers and agencies to support good attendance, to enable students to achieve better outcomes.
- To develop and implement new behaviour strategies for a growing SEMHS group.
The impact of Pupil Premium will be measured using outcomes of data by the Every Child Matters Co-ordinator in September 2018.
