Pupil Premium

Our learners who are eligible for pupil premium funding are not underachieving in comparison to their peers. This is due to our relentless commitment to personalised learning around the holistic needs of the individual.

Pupils at the North West SILC have a range of additional and complex needs. As such we employ a suite of assessment tools to understand, record and evaluate progress. This includes Early Years, National Curriculum & P Levels Connecting Steps, Adult Steps, and SCERTS. We are also in the process of developing our own Non-Academic Rate of Progress Measure which we are trailing during the Summer term. More information relating to the will be available following this trial. The targets are also be linked to the Individual Learning Plans (ILPs) and Education Health & Care Plans (EHCPs). This will enable more accurate assessment of the interventions in place.
