PROJECTED SUMMARY OF PUPIL PREMIUM GRANT SPENDING 2020-2021

Pupil Premium funding has been provided to ‘close the gap’ so that disadvantaged pupils progress as well as other pupils. The indicator of pupils who are disadvantaged is those who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) who are in Reception to Year 11. This also includes those who have ever been eligible for this in the last 6 years- known as the ‘Ever 6’ including Looked after Children (LAC).

Art Therapy

£6,654

Art Therapy is an intervention where learners can use  art materials and their relationship with the art therapist to express feelings and emotions that are hard to communicate. The often close bond with the art therapist gives children a safe place to express their feelings, allowing them to grow as individuals and understand themselves and their world better. The intervention can also act on a more basic level of learning social skills, looking after materials, gaining perseverance, and learning how to cope to resolve frustration.

Due to Covid-19 restriction, Art Therapy has been suspended until further notice.

Music Therapy

Nordoff Robbins

£16,149

Music therapy is an intervention where the students create music with the therapist. The students have a choice over which instruments they want to use, and the therapeutic work is tailored to the different individuals or group scenarios. In music therapy, the therapist works towards helping the student to develop their listening while they are playing. In order to accomplish this, the therapist closely accompanies and shapes music around the student’s playing, so that we are making structured music together. Over time, the student recognises that the therapist is following their playing and the therapist can begin to influence their playing (i.e. getting faster/slower/softer/louder). As the relationship around music making deepens, students can develop different skills which can help with their school work. These skills can be listening to others and responding to them, concentrating on single tasks, and maintaining their focus. Therapy can also provide a space for students to express difficult emotions in a supportive atmosphere.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the music therapy changed from being provided face to face to virtual sessions from January 2021. The face to face sessions restarted w/c 8th March 2021.
