Strategy Statement

Priorities

  • Disadvantaged attainment gap
  • Disadvantaged gap on entry into school
  • Embedding strong attachments with students and families
  • Boys

 

Strategy

  • Build upon what we know works. For example, we have a strong team of 1:1 tutors and an outstanding pastoral team who have excellent relationships with families. Increasing capacity in these areas makes logical sense.
  • We run a successful Saturday school which last year made a marked increase in student progress. Again, we are expanding this program.
  • Take the opportunity to give Heads of Departments a chance to be innovative in their approach to closing gaps and engagement
  • Look at further research and implementation into supporting boys in the classroom as part of our long-term strategy in this area.

 

 

Aims

  • To reduce the attainment gap in Y9, Y10, Y11 between disadvantaged pupils and their peers
  • To reduce the number of students in Y7 and 8 who have a reading age significantly below their chronological age
  • To increase the progress and attainment of boys across the whole school
  • To support the mental health of disadvantaged students and re-build/cement strong attachments with families
