Challenge Partners review November 2014

Pupil Premium review April 2015
It was clear from my visit that the progress of its disadvantaged students is a key priority for the school. The Senior Leadership Team is extremely committed to ensuring that its disadvantaged pupils receive quality-first teaching across all subjects supported by effective interventions and access to as wide a range of opportunities as possible. The school has an extremely good awareness of its students and their specific needs and has implemented an impressive range of interventions to target Maths and English skills in particular and to widen opportunity accordingly. These interventions are monitored very effectively, enabling the school to anticipate where they may need to intervene to have further impact on pupil learning. This work has already seen gaps close rapidly. The focus on high quality first teaching is reducing the need for additional interventions and indicates the sustainability of ongoing improvements in the outcomes of those pupils eligible for Pupil Premium.

As part of our ongoing self-evaluation, the college regulary seeks the views of others.
