Pupil Premium

Pupil premium Civid19 disadvantaged strategy:

Trust Leaders have recognised that the Covid19 crisis has the potential to cause a widening of the educational and welfare gap between disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged young people. We also recognise that disadvantage in these circumstances is a wider definition than that offered by those young people entiltled to FSM or pupil premium funding. The Trust has therefore created a Covid Disadvantaged Strategy which can be found above. The aim of the strategy is to limit the potential negative impact created by the lockdown and beyond when we return to school. The strategy will be evaluated in the same way as our annual impact statement and will be built into our general PP strategic plan for 20-21.

Pupil Premium Spending

For 2018-19 the school was allocated £200,014 in Pupil Premium funding. This money was earmarked for a number of projects to support our most vulnerable students, with the aim of closing the gap in terms of outcomes between our most vulnerable students and the rest of the school.

Our primary strategy for supporting all students is outstanding classroom teaching and learning. We recognise however that for some students additional input is required to ensure that they reach our rigorous demands in terms of academic progress, attendance and community engagement. In order to support our expectations a number of projects have been funded through the Pupil Premium allocation.

Each project has a clear objective and plans for evaluation of impact are in place as well as completed evaluations where possible.

We recognise that receipt of Free School Meals does not necessarily mean that students are socially disadvantaged and equally that not being in receipt of Free School Meals does not mean that students are not socially disadvantaged.

We reserve the right to allocate our pupils to Pupil Premium funding to students that the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged, in order to support their meeting of our high demands in terms of academic progress, attendance and community engagement.
