Pupil Premium & Catch-Up Premium
Please find below the Annual Pupil Premium Summary of Spend & Impact Report.
Allocation of Pupil Premium
The Pupil Premium grant is used to enhance students learning and to assist financially when required.
Students not making expected target grade levels in English and Maths, along with those who have below average grades on joining the school are given targeted support on a regular basis. An example of this is the employing of a specialist English teacher – identified as Outstanding by Ofsted – to teach small groups of students who require support in order to progress in English.
The school runs a breakfast club, where breakfast is provided for students who receive Free School Meals (FSM). In addition, many opportunities outside the “normal” curriculum such as a targeted Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme and vocational training at a local provider are accessed by students who are eligible for the Pupil Premium.
The School runs many day and residential trips and financial help is given to those students, who are entitled to FSM and who have been targeted as attending the trips. Most trips are curriculum related and those which take place in KS4 are a fundamental part of the courses the students are studying.
