Pupil Premium at Newhaven School
At Newhaven we consider ourselves to be in a rare position; it could be said that students accessing education in a Pupil Referral Unit (PRU), King’s Park or NEST are all at a disadvantage compared to students in a mainstream school.
Students attend Newhaven for a variety of reasons but many can be related to socio-economic disadvantage and barriers to learning that have led to exclusion from, or inability to attend, mainstream education. It is for this reason that Newhaven pays for a wide range of external and internal services to help remove those barriers to learning and help our students achieve:
We invest far more in services such as Clinical Psychology, Educational Psychology, Speech and Language Therapy, Art Therapy and School Nursing than most schools. We believe this is the most effective way of addressing the barriers that our young people face.
