Birches Head Academy

Pupil Premium


Nationally the statistics show that students who are in receipt of the Pupil Premium Funding make less progress than their peers.

At Birches Head Academy, it is our intention to:

  • Raise the attainment and improve the progress of Disadvantaged students
  • Close the achievement gap between Disadvantaged and other students
  • Ensure that the proportion of students making expected and above expected progress is the same for both Disadvantaged and all other students
  • Use the Pupil Premium funding to support a range of activities designed to improve access to equipment, resources and enrichment activities
  • Ensure the funding reaches the students who need it most and that it makes a noticeable difference to their educational experience
