Pupil Premium Vision
We believe that every child has the ability to achieve their potential regardless of background. We will provide opportunities to overcome the challenges of social economic disadvantage and ensure high aspirations for all pupils.
Key strategies include:
- Understanding and knowing our pupils.
- Supporting pupil well-being and promoting attendance.
- A shared vision by all staff of achievement for all.
- Targeted provision that is based on a sound analysis of individual needs.
- Teaching staff accountability for the progress of disadvantaged pupils in their classes.
- Rigorous evaluating of data and effective use of feedback, planning, support and interventions to close the attainment gap in all subjects.
- Providing full access to the curriculum at home, within the school day and through extra-curricular opportunities.
The main challenges to learning for our disadvantaged pupils are:
- Reading fluency and enjoyment.
- Breadth of vocabulary and language.
- Focused support for learning at home.
- Social and emotional well-being, resilience and attendance.
