What do we want to achieve? How will we know if we have been successful?
To maximise attainment and readiness for all vulnerable learners including, but not limited to:

  • learners with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.
  • learners with social and emotional mental health challenges.
  • learners with English as an Additional Language at all stages of language acquisition.
  • newly arrived learners.
  • children missing in education.
  • Inclusion data show that barriers to learning for vulnerable learners are diminishing and inclusive practice is consistently strong.
  • Analysis of pupil outcomes shows improved relative outcomes for all learners, including vulnerable learners and vulnerable groups of learners.
  • Accurate identification of vulnerable learners and clear information for schools about the available resources and support (including universal, targeted and specialist support) impacts positively on outcomes.
To identify all young carers and provide them, and their families, with appropriate support.
  • Accurate and comprehensive identification of young carers in all Sheffield schools and colleges.

All children and young people entitled to:
