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 2016 to 2017. The premium, for pupils from all backgrounds who do not reach the expected level 4 in reading or mathematics at key stage 2, enables schools to provide additional support to help them catch up. In 2015 – 2016 sixteen students were in receipt of this funding totalling £8,000. The impact of this is evaluated in the “Pupil Premium – 2015 to 2016 review and actions including Literacy and Numeracy Catchup Premium”
Strategies planned for these students are documented in the Pupil Premium with Literacy and Numeracy Statement of Intent and Summary of Strategies 2016-2017.
