Every school has a duty to ensure that every individual child is given the best possible chance of achieving their potential.

The Government provides Pupil Premium funding, which is in addition to main school funding, to help address national inequalities between the achievements of children eligible for free school meals or children in care.

The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools based on the number of students who are known to be eligible for free school meals or have been eligible in the last six years and children who have been continuously looked after for more than six months. It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual students within their responsibility.

At Tiverton high School we support all of our students.

We do this by providing high quality classroom teaching supplemented by interventions to support vulnerable learners. The Middle Management Team work alongside the Senior Leadership Team and Governors to ensure that the Pupil Premium is targeted and provides the best possible support to students that may be at a disadvantage. 

 

Which students are prioritised?

  • Free school meal (FSM) students and other vulnerable students who are underachieving at KS4
  • FSM students and other vulnerable students who are underachieving at KS3
  • Other underachieving students

 

Literacy and numeracy catch-up premium

The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gives schools additional funding to support year 7 pupils who did not achieve the expected standard in reading or maths at the end of key stage 2 (KS2).

We have used this additional funding in three ways;

  1. We have employed a primary trained specialist teacher of literacy and numeracy, who works with Y7 students who have not reached 'secondary ready' on their transition to Tiverton High School, through small group intervention.
  2. We have purchased SuccessMaker, an online invention package for English and Maths - SuccessMaker is an adaptive and prescriptive scheduling intervention program delivering both the reading and maths curriculum. Year 7 students use this programme to enable them to 'catch up' with their secondary ready peers.
  3. We employ a specialist literacy team who deliver the ARROWS programme to ensure students who come in to Tiverton High School below their chronological reading age are able to 'catch up' before transitioning into Year 8.
