Our Pupil Premium Promise

Our intention for our pupil premium is simple. Our students, regardless of socio-economic background, should all progress equally. The life chances of those with disadvantaged financial backgrounds should be equal to those that do not have that challenge. Our unequivocal drive towards equality of experience, enrichment opportunities and exam outcomes for all is at the heart of our academy. We believe that what happens in our classrooms in every period of every academy day is what makes the difference. As such we use our PP funding to provide a wide programme of support so that learning opportunities can be accessed without question or excuse. After all, higher attainment creates life chances and life choices.

Academy Objectives

Our objectives remain steadfast in taking an approach to maintain sustainable, continuous improvement which includes;

  • providing targeted support to improve the attainment and enrichment of disadvantaged pupils.
  • identifying vulnerable groups and ensuring their opportunity to succeed through additional interventions is maximised.
  • monitoring and proactively working towards reducing the gap in attainment between FSM and non-FSM pupils.
  • tracking outcomes of chosen interventions to ensure the maximum possible progress that justifies best value for money.
  • supporting staff with potential barriers to learning for FSM pupils and other vulnerable groups .
  • encouraging parents and carers to apply for FSM through positive engagement where changes in circumstance warrant FSM.
  • providing support to parents through attendance intervention to improve outcomes by reducing absences from school.
