Reminder: Please sign Student Planners! One of the easiest ways of keeping in touch with your child’s progress is to make sure that you have signed their planner. You can leave notes in the planner if you wish to communicate with your child’s tutor or subject teachers and keep an eye on how much homework is being set.
We monitor our student’s planners every week and, when we see your signature, we know that we are supporting each other with your child’s education.
Pupil Premium Policy
“Our mission is to create an outstanding Academy for our students who will become the leaders of tomorrow in every walk of life.
We will do what it takes to give every student the knowledge, skills, self belief and motivation to be successful in their learning.”
The effective use of the Pupils Premium grant involves all elements of our mission statement and core values. At Evelyn Grace Academy, ALL students, including the most severely disadvantaged and highly gifted, are regarded as unique individuals and receive both challenge and support designed to meet their needs.
All pupils can and will succeed at our Academy. We passionately believe that education plays a powerful and transformative role in improving life chances. We aim to do what it takes to remove any barriers that stand in the way of pupils achieving an outstanding education. As such, our main purpose is to focus on closing the gaps in achievement and attainment that may exist for different groups of pupils in our school.
Use of Pupil Premium Grant
Our Pupil Premium Grant has been used to provide a range of additional support for our pupils and these interventions have had a significant impact on pupil’s progress, attainment and well being.
Our key objective in using the Pupil Premium Grant is to narrow the gap between pupil groups. Through targeted interventions we are working to eliminate barriers to learning and progress. Many children start school with low attainment on entry and our aim is to ensure that they make accelerated progress in order to reach age related expectations and as they move through the school.
As a school we have a good track record of ensuring that pupils make good progress. We are delighted that GCSE and internal assessments results show that students in receipt of Pupil Premium funding progress at least as well as those who do not receive such funding.
The results reflect the hard work of staff, excellent partnership working with parents and a determination to ensure that EVERY child succeeds. Further details in review of our use of Pupil Premium for 2015/16 and its intended use for 2016/17 can be found below.
