Dear Parents and Students
Welcome to Monmouth Comprehensive School
In our school we encourage everyone to have the highest expectations of themselves and each other as together we Learn to Lead our Lives.
We are proud of our students’ academic achievements. Just as importantly, we are a school that cares. We believe that students need to feel comfortable and secure in order to learn and, as a school, we put as much emphasis on creating a supportive and happy environment as we do on academic success. We achieve both.
I look forward to working with you to ensure the very best learning and life for the young people in our care.

PUPIL DEPRIVATION GRANT FUNDING
Every year our school receives additional funding to support students in receipt of Free School Meals. Our school has 1638 students on role (as of 14/10/15) of which fewer than 10% are in receipt of Free School Meals. The number of students eligible for Free School Meals has increased this year but remains less than 10% of the whole school population.
This year (April 2015 - March 2016) we received £93,450 from the Pupil Deprivation Grant. Students in receipt of this funding receive some or all of the following:
- literacy and numeracy support across Key Stages 3 and 4 delivered by specifically trained staff
- vocational mentors to support college placements, literacy, numeracy and future pathway decisions to provide a broad and bespoke curriculum
- vocational course placements for students
- additional tracking of FSM students during Whole School Learning Reviews , allowing for specific interventions to ensure that more achieve at least 5 GCSEs at Grade C or above including Maths and English
- individual teaching assistant support during Learning and Vocational Support, English, Maths and Integrated Curriculum lessons.
The schools PDG, SEG and WEG plans are regularly scrutinised by the Governing Body, supported by advice from the EAS and monitored by the Local Authority.
