Pupil Premium and Catch-up Premium
Pupil Premium / Disadvantage Funding
At the Priory Belvoir Academy, we fully support the Pupil Premium / Disadvantage Funding agenda and believe that the best way for disadvantaged pupils to achieve is to be in an Academy with high expectations, a strong ethos of achievement, and where Quality First Teaching is the norm for all pupils. Academy leaders champion high aspirations and create a positive climate for learning. Targeted support allows progress rates for disadvantage pupils to accelerate.
Our aim is that everyone achieves, and the disadvantage funding is used to ensure that all pupils have the opportunity to reach their full potential by making good or better progress, achieving well in examinations and being prepared for life and the world of work.
As an Academy, we adopt a wide range of intervention strategies to support those eligible for Disadvantage Funding. These are complimented by our clear focus on Quality First Teaching, with effective marking and feedback being a prominent feature.
