Key Priorities:

Our core aim is to raise the attainment and progress of students eligible for pupil premium funding so that their performance compares favourably with Non-Pupil Premium peers nationally. Address inequalities in the education of students from low-income families and raise the attainment of these students. This remains a consistent and relentless focus. In addition to this, targeted intervention and support strategies are deployed in order to:
  • improve levels of attainment and progress;
  • close attainment gaps relative to national averages;
  • enhance reading, writing, mathematics and communication skills;
  • engage and develop learning through a comprehensive extra-curricular provision;
  • subsidising enriching experiences that disadvantaged students might otherwise miss;
  • have a clear focus on all disadvantaged students, including those with SEND and more able students and support students in becoming aspirational, confident and successful learners

What we expect to see

Outstanding teaching and learning is paramount to the progress of students from disadvantaged backgrounds. This remains a consistent and relentless focus. In addition to this, targeted intervention and support strategies are deployed in order to:
  • improve levels of attainment and progress;
  • close attainment gaps relative to national averages;
  • enhance reading, writing, mathematics and communication skills;
  • engage and develop learning through a comprehensive extra-curricular provision;
  • Subsidising enriching experiences that disadvantaged students might otherwise miss;
  • have a clear focus on all disadvantaged students, including those with SEND and more able students and support students in becoming aspirational, confident and successful learners

National Recognition:
