Secondary School Entrance Changes

From Monday 14th January our entrance on Wood Lane will be open to students only until 8:55am. Students will also leave via this entrance as usual at the end of the school day. Any students arriving after 8.55am will have to enter via the Du Cane Road entrance and register at the all-through reception, which is located in the Primary. They will then be escorted to their lessons.  

All visitors, parents and guests will arrive and leave via the Du Cane Raod entrance, at all times and also check in to the all-through reception.

The all-through reception is reached by following the pavement around to the left and entering the primary building. 

Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is a grant given to schools for each child who claims free school meals currently or who has done so in the past. It is really important that all parents/carers of children eligible to do so register for free school meals even if you don’t choose to have them as the grant enable us to provide extra resources for your children.

Research has shown that children who have been on/ are on Free School Meals (FSM) do not attain as highly as other children in school. The government provides this grant so that we can commission/allocate additional support to ensure that they do. The support can be in a short burst or over a longer term such as a term, two terms, a year or more. It may take the form of 1-1 or small group teaching and may be an evidence based intervention. It can be additional resources, enrichment or access to opportunities that enhance learning and or aspiration.

Y7 Catchup Funding

The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gives schools additional funding to support year 7 pupils who did not achieve at least level 4 in reading or maths at the end of key stage 2 (KS2). Schools receive £500 for each pupil in year 7 who did not achieve at least level 4 in reading or maths at the end of KS2.

All schools have to report on how this money was spent, as well as the impact of the premium to those pupils who are eligible. A link to our report can be found below.
