Pupil Premium Strategy 2017 – 2018
At The Berkeley Academy we believe every child is unique and special. Our Growth mindset and reflective approach ensures we have the highest expectations of all children and that no one is left behind. All members of staff, governors and teaching assistants accept responsibility for ‘socially disadvantaged’ pupils and are committed to meeting their pastoral, social and academic needs within a caring environment.
In order to meet the above requirements, the Governing Body of The Berkeley Academy will ensure that provision is made which secures the teaching and learning opportunities that meet the needs of all pupils. After analysing our data, our priority in the academic year 2017-2018 will be to focus on diminishing the difference between children in receipt of Pupil Premium Grant and those who are not so that all children achieve their expected level or higher.
We will ensure that:
Funding for this year falls into 3 key areas:
1) Learning and the Curriculum
2)Enrichment within and beyond the curriculum
3)Social and Emotional Support
We will review this strategy and its impact in July 2018.
