Pupil Premium Grant
At Fareham Academy, we are committed to closing the gap between our disadvantaged students and their peers. We continue to strive to do this by ensuring that the curriculum we provide is both relevant and inspiring. As a school we have an uncompromising drive to ensure that all staff personalise the learning of each child, taking into consideration each student's needs. We provide these students with the best teachers in our dedication to closing the attainment gap and through targeted support.
At Fareham Academy, we believe that learning is not solely achieved in the classroom; our global and national enrichment opportunities and our commitment to ensuring that our Pupil Premium students are provided with the digital and literary based resources to meet the learning needs of a 21st Century learner is a fundamental element of our pastoral care and ethos of our school.
The Pupil Premium grant is allocated to children from low-income families, children who are looked after and previously looked after and for children with parent(s) in the Armed Forces.
Pupil Premium funding provides funding for two separate reasons:
To raise the attainment of disadvantaged students of all abilities to reach their potential
To support students and young people with parents in the regular armed forces
Evidence shows that students from disadvantaged backgrounds:
Generally face extra challenges in reaching their potential at school
Often do not perform as well as their peers
The pupil premium grant is designed to allow schools to help disadvantaged pupils by improving their progress and the exam results they achieve.
