Pupil Premium Strategy
Where pupils are eligible for Pupil Premium, this is allocated to their home school, not to the Pilgrim Pathways School. Cambridgeshire County Council allocates a small notional amount to the Pilgrim Pathways School each year to cover Pupil Premium.
When a young person is admitted to one of the centres within the Pilgrim Pathways School the Teacher in Charge asks the home school whether the pupil is in receipt of Pupil Premium and, if so, how it is being spent. The education team at the Pilgrim Pathways School will endeavour to ensure that the support continues.
Every child or young person within the Pilgrim Pathways School receives a personalised education plan to help support their learning goals. All are vulnerable learners as a result of their medical needs. Those who are eligible for Pupil Premium are treated in the same way as other pupils. The Pupil Premium allows us to buy packages and extra tuition which meets their needs and also benefits other pupils.
The impact of Pupil Premium will be measured by looking at attendance and engagement information for each pupil. We would hope to see improved attendance and higher social emotional and mental health scores for those students who have received additional support.
