How Pupil Premium money will be spent to address barriers above:-

  • There will be a focus on students on Free School Meals.
  • Reading intervention by the Student Mentor Support Assistant, literacy work by all staff, talking homework and focus on vocabulary for subjects by support staff.

The impact of Pupil Premium will be measured using outcomes of data by the Every Child Matters Co-ordinator in September 2020.
