Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium

The government provides pupil premium funding for schools in proportion to the number of students in each.

Our summer 2018 progress data indicates that the 2017-18 Pupil Premium strategy ensured our disadvantaged students (DAS) made the same progress as their peers in English and mathematics within the school.

How we use our Pupil Premium

At Weavers Academy we believe every student can achieve success. We use the additional funding provided through Pupil Premium by providing personalized support to help overcome the barriers to learning.

We aim to improve standards so that:

  • Overall attendance and persistent absence falls for disadvantaged students
  • Increased proportion of learners entitled to the additional funding achieve the basic measures, particularly in English and mathematics, and narrowing the gap to all other students nationally.
  • Outcomes across the whole curriculum improve and engagement and participation in extended learning activities increases.
