Executive Summary

Talbot is a Secondary Special School.  The school is currently judged as Outstanding by Ofsted (2013) and is also a designated Teaching School (Fusion TSA).

2015/16

The school received £58,905 Pupil Premium funding representing 48% of the population from Y7-11, for 57 pupils in receipt of FSM and 1 Looked After Child.

The school delivers a rich and varied curriculum which is personalised to meet the needs of each student.  The focus was on individual students and ensuring that barriers to learning were identified and appropriate interventions and support were put in place. The school’s priorities for 2015/16 were:

  • To ensure that there was no gap between the progress and attainment of those receiving Pupil Premium funding and other pupils.
  • To support the development of communication skills
  • To offer a wide range of enrichment and cultural activities
  • To promote health and well-being through sport activities

The school assesses pupils learning using B squared and CASPA for data analysis.  This provides a robust comparator for the school, in measuring its outcomes for pupils against national data for similar pupils with similar needs and starting points.  The school appears to be robust in monitoring its teaching and learning strategy, ensuring targets for individuals are moderated, relevant and appropriate.  Senior Leaders discuss individual progress with class teachers on a regular basis, identifying any concerns around progress and data, and establishing action plans with them to address these.  

Outcomes confirmed by the school, show all pupils for whom Pupil Premium is received, making expected or better than expected progress at the end of Key Stage 3 and 4.

  • To ensure that communication strategies are embedded and implemented throughout school in order that pupils can maximise their communication skills, both verbal and non-verbal.
  • To promote self-confidence, resilience and increased independence by enabling pupils to complete their Lord Mayors Award or Duke of Edinburgh Award.
  • To enable pupils to experience an enriched curriculum through participation in offsite learning opportunities.
  • To provide enrichment activities which improve student’s health and well-being, and develop social and co-operative skills.
  • To develop self-confidence team work and communication skills and to enable students and their families to experience the richness of Shakespeare and the opportunity to perform in the theatre.
