Infection Information: 

The academy is now closed for half term. During the holiday break we still need to collate infection information on our students, and close contacts would need to be advised of risk. If your child is tested positive, please contact the School Health Support Team call line on 01772 531555 with the date, name and school of the child. If you prefer you can also email details to the Covid19 Education inbox using the link

Pupil Premium

The Government introduced the Pupil Premium funding for schools in 2011. They believe that this is the best way to address underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it the most. 

Schools determine how the Pupil Premium should be spent since they are best placed to identify and assess what additional provision can be put in place for the individual pupils within their responsibility.

Barriers to learning

The type of barrier to learning that PP students experience does vary from year to year and each student and cohort is different. The types of issues students face can include poor levels of attendance, lower numeracy and literacy of students, low aspirations, SEN needs, social and family difficulties etc. However, we believe that this could equally be the same for any students. We have high expectations of all students though appropriate challenge and support; this is the case for all students including those who receive PP funding. All students are expected to make good progress and take the pathway which is appropriate for their ability, irrespective of their PP status.
