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.

Pupil Premium 2016-2017

Y7 Catch-up Premium Proposed Expenditure 2017-18

The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gives schools additional funding to support year 7 pupils who did not achieve the expected standard in reading or maths at the end of key stage 2 (KS2).

All state-funded schools with year 7 pupils receive this funding.

At Daubeney we use the funding to provide intensive small-sized sets with a qualified teacher.

Strategy Estimated Cost (£) Intended impact
Additional small sets for Maths and English led by qualified teachers (2 additional teachers per subject per year group)
