As a School all of our children are valued and nurtured regardless of whether they are LAC/FSM and EVER 6 students.    We believe that as well as financial support, students, especially those in care need love and guidance to help them on their journey through life.

We want our students to appreciate that material items and money are not everything and other factors such as a positive attitude, honesty and commitment are equally as important.

Through the use of pupil premium money we aim to address all of the above and at the same time set safe boundaries to learn right from wrong helping to develop their life skills and provide academic success.

All students should have access and opportunities and not be discriminated against purely for financial or their care situations.

LAC Pupil Premium Barriers (aligned to the schools RESET and RECOVERY)

·         Pupils don’t have the ability to work independently (academically) or ability to self-motivate themselves to better support their own mental health and well-being.

·         The unknown impact of social isolation, fear and emotional loss due to COVID-19.

·         Potential missed learning experiences, which could impact on progress (from baseline) and expected attainment (from EKS2 and / or EKS3).

·         Pupils lack of understanding around reasonable endeavours and practicalities from those who care to mitigate risk.

      LAC Pupil Premium Strategy (aligned to the schools RESET and RECOVERY)

·         To provide appropriate access to remote learning that supports their academic development as well as their Social, Emotional and Mental Health.

·         To signpost effective external agencies to enhance the Elmwood Local Offer (working in collaboration).

·         To provide opportunities to be independent and to practice these skills within a controlled environment.

·         To have access to a staffing team that are aware of Trauma Informed Practice as well as managing Post Traumatic Stress. Right Help at the Right Time (with a member of staff that cares).

·         Greater use of Emotion Coaching principles across the school supporting an effective “check in and check out” at the end of every day.

·         Access to High Quality Teaching (within whole group) to support a recovery curriculum – that enables achievement at the end of year. The expectation is still to achieve at least at expected progress from baseline entry into school.

·         To enable pupils to access an enriching curriculum and environment that improves sense of self, sense of belonging and sense of personal power.

·         To support pupils thinking around a Risk Benefit Analysis approach which supports the THINK – REDUCE RISK – HAVE FUN approach to education.  

·         To respond to pupil specific needs (Individual Needs Analysis) as a child’s journey isn’t linear and needs to be flexible. An allocated budget will be provided for LAC’s to show budgeting skills.

The documents below demonstrate the positives; challenges; review of previous steps and next steps for those who are identified as being a LAC; FSM or NFSM across the key stages and core subjects. Statistical comparrison is very difficult across small cohorts but we have tried to highlight how many pupils this is when aspiring to a 0% gap analysis between FSM & LAC and the NFSM cohort:
