Pupil Premium was introduced by the government in April 2011 as a scheme for providing schools with additional funding to support disadvantaged students. This is in the form of an additional amount of money given to schools in order to help close the achievement gap between those children from disadvantaged families and their peers.
Maplefields strives to provide meaningful opportunities for all students regardless of starting points through a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum which provides rich, concrete and fully encompassing experiences. By learning to develop their communication skills, building healthy relationships, promoting independence developing a sense of self-worth students are able to make informed decisions about their futures and become successful, lifelong members of the community.
At Maplefields we create a learning environment which supports student’s emotional needs and mental health needs through a multi layered approach to learning. We attempt to increase student’s abilities to communicate with others by widening the tools / programmes that we use. The creation of reading rich environments giving our students opportunities and experiences to increase their ability to access the curriculum and fulfil their potential.
