Outwood Academy Valley has been allocated £283,425 for the academic year 2016/17. We receive this money in quarterly instalments and these funds are in addition to the main school budget (the General Annual Grant).
The aim at Outwood Academy Valley is to develop many robust intervention strategies, all of which are designed to support each individual student to achieve their full potential. Our aim is to ‘narrow the gap’ between different groups of students and fulfil one of our core aims “to raise standards for all students by sustaining and enhancing performance and to develop the whole child”.
Below is a list of strategies that we use to support students and the total cost of some of these strategies. The intervention strategies exceed by far the total amount we receive for the Pupil Premium. The Pupil Premium is used to support all of these strategies.
Revision sessions for students who are examined are to be held at regular intervals throughout the year. Sessions are provided within the school day, evenings, weekends and during holiday time.
Uniform has been provided for all Year 6 students who are awarded a place at Outwood Academy Valley, so that all students have an equal starting point. This will continue in the future and also includes free uniform for all in year admissions.
The Academy offers financial assistance for families and students wishing to attend school trips and excursions, this ensures that all students benefit from a variety of experiences designed to enhance life chances and removes what could be a financial barrier.
Our Inclusion Team are specialists in areas of Safeguarding, SEND, attendance and pastoral support, working tirelessly to support our students maintaining strong links with external agency support services. It is an extremely valuable resource and greatly appreciated by the students.
The Bridge is the Academy’s Social Inclusion Centre, co-ordinated by the Bridge Manager. Within the Bridge, support is given to students with more complex social, emotional, behavioural and medical issues. It provides a safe and supportive environment for the Academy’s most vulnerable students.
The Bridge proactive intervention programme offers a varied and wide ranging programme of workshops and courses throughout the year including ABC (Actions Behaviour and Consequences programme), Anger Management, Self-esteem groups, Personal Safety and the STOP programme, a behaviour modification programme designed to support the most difficult to reach and disengaged students and prepare them for life.
The Personalised Learning Centre is co-ordinated by the PLC Manager and provides students with personalised learning packages designed to meet individual needs, provide focussed intervention to support and raise attainment and to support and promote independent learning. The PLC is home to the One to One Maths Mentors who support students to achieve their full potential and is the hub for EAL students supporting them to immerse themselves in academy life.
We are supported by Kooth, a counselling service who work with our students. They currently provide 24 hours a day 7 days per week access to support students with mental health, anxiety and other issues. Partnerships also include working with the NHS school nurse team, sexual health advisors and local PCSOs.
