making the difference with Pupil Premium funding
The Dfe require us to produce a Pupil Premium Strategy for the academic year.
Our Ofsted report in February 2018 states: Disadvantaged pupils make excellent progress the minute they enter your school
We have formulated our strategy for this year based on our evaluation of 2017-2018, the impact on results can be found on the link here
Our strategy for 2018-19 can be found here.
We will review our strategy in July 2019.
This strategy is part of the Academy Improvement Plan (IP) that is formulated in September and identifies our priorities for the coming year.
It is written by the leadership team and monitored throughout the year by staff and governors.
The Improvement Plan makes sure that we think and plan carefully for the academic year and it secures a cycle of continuous improvement.
Pupil Premium spending was reviewed as part of budget setting in April 2018 and the new financial year, but we do make amendments mid-year, as our funding is adjusted dependent on the school census information
