The PDF below provides information about the Pupil Premium Funding allocation for the current academic year. Funding received by Kennel Lane School will be used to enable us to provide identified learners with additional support and resources. This is in addition to any funding the learner may receive to support their special educational needs.

The range of provision that will be covered for learners:

• Facilitating learners access to education
• Facilitating learners access to broader curriculum opportunities
• Additional teaching and learning opportunities
• Alternative support and intervention
• Facilitate individual learner development.

The main barriers to educational achievement faced by eligible pupils at the school:

Kennel Lane School is committed to ensuring its learners have the best possible outcomes for when they transition into adult life.  The school places communication, literacy skills, numeracy skills and independence at the heart of the curriculum and recognises that for all learners, regardless of ability, reaching their full potential may be dependent on communication, literacy skills, numeracy skills and independence.  Therefore, Kennel Lane School will use the Pupil Premium Funding on raising attainment in these priority areas.

Over the last few years Kennel Lane School recognises that an increasing number of our learners are suffering from mental health issues some of which are related to historical events outside of the school environment.

How we will spend the school’s Pupil Premium to overcome the barriers and the reasons for our approach is documented in the PDF below:
