A new feature of the Eagle Newsletter is a regular update on our use of Pupil Premium (PP) funding. Firstly, invitations to our Pupil Premium Parents’ Information Evening on Wednesday 28th September are currently being sent out to families that qualify for the funding. This meeting will outline in greater detail how we allocate the funding around school, how it impacts students and we will also explain the many uses of the PP £125 voucher.

Our PP GCSE results this year were fantastic; our best ever and significantly better than the national average. These results were achieved through hard work, dedication and commitment from the students working with our dedicated PP team, allowing them to secure their desired places in college and apprenticeships. We are extremely proud of the progress made and have every confidence they will continue the learning behaviours developed here throughout their next steps and go on to achieve great things. The Pupil Premium Progress team consists of: Mr P Groves, Assistant Headteacher; Mr M Cushing, Progress Leader and Miss R Creighton, Achievement Mentor
