All students at Oaktree have Education, Health and Care Plans which identify a variety of complex learning difficulties. All our students work below national age related expectations.
The combination of these learning difficulties, often alongside social and emotional and speech and language challenges present, for each student, considerable barriers to learning.
In recent years the number of students eligible for Pupil Premium has averaged at just under 50%. In general we use our grant in 2 ways:
- To support Teacher and Learning Support Assistant led intervention programmes for pupil premium students
- To provide financial subsidy to pupil premium students to ensure access to opportunities to cultural and sporting experiences which they may otherwise not be able to enjoy.
