Pupil Premium

At Braunton Academy we are committed to ensure that all pupils, irrespective of their background or the challenges they face, have access to an excellent education, and resultantly achieve high attainment and progress across the school.  

We recognise that pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds may face a number of challenges, especially in the context of post Covid 19. We strive to reduce all barriers to learning faced by pupils and are committed to ensuring that we use all pupil premium funding carefully and strategically to help support all learners to achieve their full potential, irrespective of background. 

At the heart of our approach is high quality teaching for all. Research shows that high quality teaching will have the greatest impact on closing the disadvantage attainment gap and at the same time will benefit the non-disadvantaged pupils in our school. Implicit in the intended outcomes detailed below, is the intention that non-disadvantaged pupils’ attainment will be sustained and improved alongside progress for their disadvantaged peers. 

Our focus on high quality teaching in every classroom will be further strengthened by targeted academic support, ensuring that gaps in knowledge and skills can be addressed. Interventions and support will be research led, and regularly reviewed to ensure they are having the desired impact. In addition, wider strategies will be employed to develop the character, experiences and the resilience of our pupils as we prepare them for the world beyond the school gates. 

The intended outcome of all activities and interventions detailed in our Pupil Premium strategy is that all pupils, irrespective of background, are provided with high quality teaching, effective support and accessible enrichment opportunities so that they thrive and develop into successful and happy individuals.
