Pupil Premium Funding – 2015/16

The Academy received £48,840 in pupil premium funding during the academic year of 2015 – 16. The table below shows how the money was spent.

Monitoring has demonstrated the need for a focus on the application of the basic skills reading, writing and maths, with a particular focus on the reasoning aspect of maths. The development of these skills will enable pupils to make further progress in the core subjects and we hope to see them translate into the foundation subjects.

Following discussion with staff, governors and pupils we feel these skills need to be modelled to a high standard and applied in a range of contexts.
