In 2017, we will be launching a Pupil Premium 12-week GCSE Study Programme. Pupil Premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.
Working together with Head Teachers and Jamie’s Farm, we are designing a specialised 12-week Pupil Premium package that supports pupils to work towards their Science or Maths GCSE, while benefiting from a programme of farm therapy.
Each week, a three hour session will combine academic study in our newly built farm classroom, with therapeutic farm activities that aim to develop their softer skills such as resilience, self-esteem and discipline.
Further information on our Pupil Premium package of support will be available soon.
