Pupil Premium monies are made available to enable us to narrow the attainment gap that still exists in this country between students from disadvantaged and more affluent backgrounds.
Having read the research generated by The Sutton Trust, studied the Achievement for All offer, attended conferences on Closing the Gap and been involved with establishing local provision for Education Health Care plans we developed our approach to spending as follows:
Good teaching, good attendance, strong parental engagement with good family support and academy–wide good behaviour are all key to removing barriers to learning and closing the attainment gap.
We adopt a caring pastoral, vertical tutoring House approach and consistent access to strong careers education, information and guidance, raising aspirations and lending support as required
The impact of these strategies is being carefully monitored to ensure we are narrowing the gap. Not all interventions can be monitored using quantifiable data; an important aspect of our intervention scheme is the development of social skills and self-confidence.
