Evidence shows that the most effective schools achieve best outcomes through high-quality teaching, strong leadership, a relevant and coherent curriculum, a culture of high expectations and targeted catch-up and enrichment activities. Intrinsic support in the basics can enable children from disadvantaged backgrounds to catch-up with their peers. Schools also influence how parents support their child's learning and behaviour as they grow older and their needs develop. They can also help parents understand the breadth of possibilities open to their child and how their child can achieve their aspirations.
Information about our Pupil Premium Grant and detail of how we allocate the funding can be found below.
The DFE have confirmed that there will be no Year 7 Catch up Premium Funding in this academic year and it will be replaced by Covid Catch up Funding for all pupils.
In June 2020 the government announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up on missed learning caused by coronavirus (COVID19). This is especially important for the most vulnerable pupils and pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds who we know have been most affected. AP settings received an allocation of £240 per child.
