Mentoring Costs/Behaviour Intervention

 

60,000.00

Behavioural intervention and tracking of targeted students who are PP who need close behaviour support and positive engagement strategies. Commonly targeted at Year 7, 8 and 9 given specific need in these year groups with CLA/more challenging students.

 1 FSM as a proportion of exclusions has now fallen
2 similar pattern for internal exclusions
3 wider behaviour data such as detentions etc shows no significant gaps between groups

 

40000.00

We now have five learning mentors in post. 3 years left on roll (10/11 on Upper Site and Year 9 on South Site)

Education Welfare (2 dedicated officers) + external EWO support

 

50,000.00

 Attendance and welfare of PP students, monitored on a daily and weekly basis. Organises interventions and attends all PEP meetings.

1 Attendance FSM well below national average, including PA
2 Attendance FSM last year 96% versus 97%, gap closed even further
3 PA last year 3.4% FSM and 2.8 % non-FSM, gap well below national average
4 No gaps in punctuality

This strategy is effective at early intervention which is key with attendance. Proportionate reduction given decrease in numbers.

2 In others either very small gap or surplus in fsm performance in E/M/S, see pp annual report
