Q3 Academy is required to report how this money has been used to impact the education of looked after children, those eligible for free school meals and children of serving personnel in the armed forces.
The Academy’s approach to education is holistic, firmly grounded in its Christian ethos that ensures all children are provided with the best opportunities for their development irrespective of background. Therefore the Academy has deployed this funding, and added funding of its own, to provide support and interventions that are available to all students as well as those identified above.
The literacy and numeracy catchup premium for Year 7 pupils will be continued in 2017 to 2018. The premium, for pupils from all backgrounds who do not reach the expected scaled score of 100 in either reading or mathematics, enables schools to provide additional support to help them catch-up. In 2017-18 the funding total is £9,180. The impact on student outcomes and the strategies planned is explained in the “Catch up Funding Evaluation 2017 and Strategies 17-18”
Strategies planned for these students are documented in the Pupil Premium with Literacy and Numeracy Statement of Intent and Summary of Strategies 2016-2017.
