The government provides schools with pupil premium to enhance the provision for the most disadvantaged children. The money has to be spent in ways which help them overcome barriers to learning.

At Daubeney Academy we believe that the most important thing we can do to help all children become excellent learners is to be the best teachers we can. We know that for many children the introduction to art, music, sport and life skills that they receive in school can inspire achievement across the curriculum and on into adulthood. Some children struggle with low self-esteem and lack resilience so they may need extra support to access what is on offer. We also know that some of our children have complicated backgrounds which have an adverse effect on their readiness for learning.
