It is worth replying to the following comment in a full post, given the interest this issue has generated among teachers since I first raised it.
Couldn’t the home visits just be the salary of a part-time attendance officer of sorts? Would explain the costs staying the same as numbers increased if it’s being spent on a person!
Michaela Community School’s Pupil Premium spend for its two years of operation from 2014 to 2016
As I pointed out in my last post, Michaela Community School’s Pupil Premium impact figures are the antipode of evidential, undermining Michaela’s frequent & loud claims to statistical success, but what truly mystifies is Michaela’s Pupil Premium spend, since opening in 2014, of an even £20,000.00 attributed to “Home Visits“. In their first year of operation the spend works out to almost £170.00 worth of “Home Visits” per Pupil Premium child.
