At St. Paul's, we recognise the significance of helping, not just to our children who are in need but also to their families. The grant we receive enables us to create significant impact by adopting lasting approaches. In line with our objectives, we have introduced a comprehensive program of initiatives and a program that actively involves families. We have a dedicated team of teaching assistants who work closely with our teachers to cater to the specific learning needs of our vulnerable pupil groups. This support encompasses social, emotional, and academic aspects, enabling them to reach their full potential.
To effectively address the needs of disadvantaged students, we have implemented robust procedures for identifying their circumstances, current academic achievements, and progress. This includes a progress tracker and intervention plan that allows us to closely monitor their development and provide appropriate support.
Here are some key initiatives we are undertaking:
1. Enhancing well-being standards among our vulnerable learners at St. Paul's, quantifiably measuring their progress in literacy and numeracy skills.
2. Adopting a more systematic approach to early identification of low-achieving vulnerable students, promptly delivering interventions, and monitoring their impact on student performance and achievement of targets.
3. Developing personalised talk and wellbeing support to address the physical and emotional needs of students, improving their well-being and emotional development.
4. Ensuring that all vulnerable learners in early years settings have equal opportunities to develop personally and socially, aligning with their peers' progress and growth.
By implementing these measures, we aim to support our vulnerable students and their families comprehensively, enabling them to thrive academically and emotionally.
