Pupil Premium

We strive to ensure that all our groups of pupils (eg boys and girls, minority and ethnic groups, pupils with SEN, gifted and talented pupils) achieve as much as they are capable of. We identify those pupils who are making less than expected progress and reasons for this before providing support. Action plans are systematically implemented to ensure that all of our children are making good progress.

We carefully monitor and track key groups across the school and we analyse their performance against other pupils in our school and against national standards. We have a clear focus on learning and progress for all pupils. We really value the support of our parents with this to ensure we work together to meet the needs of every child.

Our Pupil Premium funding is predominately used to guarantee Quality First Teaching. It is a major priority for the Senior Leadership Team to ensure that quality Teachers and quality Support Staff guarantee Excellence For All. We then monitor and evaluate standards across school to plan for appropriate, effective interventions and resources to maximise on all children’s progress.  The Pupil Premium ensures we have additional staffing, including the academy Learning Mentors who support intervention programmes and develops links between home and school.
