Our Ofsted report published after the Ofsted inspection in December 2013 states:
‘Students who are supported by the pupil premium do well in the school as a result of the targeted support they are given. By the end of Year 11, their attainment and progress is better than similar pupils nationally and the gaps with other pupils in the school are closing.’
The pupil premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. It is paid to schools according to the number of pupils who have been:
- Registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years;
- In care for 6 months or longer (Looked-after children).
Aim of our Pupil Premium Strategy
We aim to use the pupil premium grant to close the achievement gaps between our disadvantaged students and other students with a particular focus on English and maths. Our ultimate goal is that when our disadvantaged students leave Lea Manor they are ready for their next stage in their career or learning journey.
Please look at the documents below to see details of the use of pupil premium funding at Lea Manor and examples of the impact of our strategies.
