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.
Obligatory Medieval image tangentially related to content intended to imply scholarly authority and continuity of traditional virtues. Bow down before me, thou varlet.
What can be said about Michaela Community School? Many things but I will begin at the point my charitable view ended, and by serendipity this highlights Michaela’s public use of questionable numbers.
