We aim for every single one of our pupil premium funded children to reach their potential. The purpose of this pupil premium strategy is to support all disadvantaged pupils in achieving these intentions, including those who are already high attainers.
We aim to overcome potential barriers so that this can be achieved. High quality teaching and a broad and balanced curriculum, with rich cultural experiences, ensures high expectations for all pupils. All pupils, including disadvantaged pupils, those with a social worker, service children, looked after children or young carers, are challenged to meet their personal goals and achieve good outcomes in all areas of the curriculum.
Barriers to learning will be considered in this strategy, including the academic and emotional support needed for pupils to achieve high attainment. A range of diagnostic assessment will be used to identify needs and track progress.
This strategy is closely aligned with the school’s development plan, which aims to raise standards for all pupils.
Our plan also supports the aim to support education recovery and works alongside approaches such as the National Tutoring Programme for pupils whose education has been the most negatively impacted across our school community, including non-disadvantaged pupils.
All pupils will benefit from the continuous professional development of our staff linked to professional research. High quality teaching is the driving force to high standards and expectations in our school; this is proven to have the greatest impact on closing the disadvantaged attainment gap: “Ensuring an effective teacher is in front of every class, and that every teacher is supported to keep improving, is the key ingredient of a successful school and should rightly be a top priority for pupil premium spending.” (The EEF Guide to The Pupil Premium 2022)
