What is the school doing to break down the barriers caused by deprivation?
The Local Governing Board review Pupil Premium funding and outcomes regularly. A senior teacher oversees pupil Premium and there is a governor lead.
The progress of these pupils is carefully tracked and compared against the non-pupil premium children. Hard and soft data is collected to help show academic progress as well as progress that can’t be shown by academic results such as emotional and social improvements. Comparisons in academic progress are made between the primary schools in the trust as well as compared to schools similar in size and make up on a national level.
Each of our disadvantaged students has their own Individual Education Plan with targets specific to them. These are written termly and monitored at least every half term. These plans are shared with parents and they are encouraged to assist where possible.
We continually research the newest recommendations for ways to achieve success with disadvantaged students and work with the Education Endowment Foundation to ensure we are spending our money in the ways that will bring about the best results for our pupils.
