At Cherry Orchard, all staff have high aspirations and ambitions for all of our children and are dedicated to providing the highest quality education and opportunity to all whatever their background. We strongly believe that by overcoming barriers, all children can make outstanding progress and achieve great things.
The Pupil Premium funding that we receive from the Government, allows us to break down these barriers for children, enabling them to have the same chance in life as everybody else. Barriers that range from low self-esteem, difficulty in speaking and listening, difficulty in writing, poor mental health or poor relationships with their peers and many other examples. COVID 19 and the subsequent lockdowns has also added additional challenges for children. In order to break down these barriers, we listen to our children as individuals and personalise their learning through effective use of Pupil Premium funding.
The documents below detail the funding and the impact of the spending for last year, as well as our intentions for spending for the year ahead and the following 3 years.
