Statement from the Principal on Pupil Premium (FSM) at Severndale
This additional sum of money has been targeted at an identified group of students across the academy. The money has been used to enhance provision and to provide additional resources. The impact of this additional resource will be evidenced through pupil performance targets published for parents and carers at the end of each academic year.
Pupil Premium for Looked After Children
Pupil Premium for Looked After Children has been spent on a range of items and activities linked with the needs of individuals. These have included a laptop which has helped one pupil complete homework, sensory items which have supported the development of early communication skills in the home, riding equipment which has enabled a young person to develop their self-confidence and communication skills, and a residential experience which has allowed a young person to develop independence and self help skills in a new context.
