Pupil Premium Strategy
At Canons the focus is on each individual student and strategies to support each student are in place at KS3, KS4 and KS5. The aim of using the funding is to remove or significantly reduce in-group variation for attainment and progress for all categories of student. This is rigorously monitored at 4 points per year using Learning and Professionalism Checkpoints data and with analysis from attainment data.
The strength of the data over a long period of time, has led to the treatment of pupil premium funding on a whole school basis, rather than on a project or programme basis. The data for the only directly comparable data is for the P8 elements of English and Maths, which show a mixed picture. This has created a developing priority around focussing on literacy and numeracy.
