The key objective of the Pupil Premium (PP) funding that the Academy has received is to diminish the difference in progress between those pupils eligible for the PP and those that are not eligible for the PP and, to ensure that ‘no child is left behind’. This includes the difference within the school and in comparison to national trends, and our extension programme of individualised interventions underpins this aim.
In making provision for socially disadvantaged students, Baxter College recognises that not all PP students will be socially disadvantaged or underachieving. We also recognise that not all students who are socially disadvantaged qualify for Pupil Premium. Compared to national averages, our school has a greater percentage of PP and SEN students as well as a higher than average deprivation indicator.
Consequently, we have allocated PP funding to support any groups of pupils, the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged. PP students at Baxter College have a range of abilities, including Gifted & Talented. The school is experienced in applying a range of interventions; all students are targeted and tracked to identify what is needed to help them achieve their full potential.
Mr Birch, our Assistant Principal who oversees Pupil Premium, will be more than happy to help with all enquires regarding Pupil Premium and to assist any eligible parents/carers to apply.
