There are a variety of barriers to learning at Park Primary PRU that we aim to overcome through our Pupil Premium objectives. Some pupils have spent time out of education or have been isolated out of a class base in their last school setting. Other pupils have barriers that may occur due to a medical condition or diagnosis. There are also children who have unsettled home lives or have been through a form of trauma which has caused anxiety or a lack of confidence, self esteem or self worth.
Our objectives are focused on raising attainment through reaching specific individualised SEMH targets. This process also involves re-engaging children with education and actually being in a classroom with other children which, in itself, can be an unsettling experience initially for some pupils.
By enhancing our curriculum we are allowing children to learn in a variety of ways. This allows pupils who may find the more formalised class based learning opportunites to gain access to learning which will help them develop in a social and personal way.
