Pupil Premium at Newark Orchard School
Our belief goes hand in hand with our mission statement of ‘Individual Growth, Individual People’ and to truly make an impact on the lives of young people for whom this funding is aimed, we need to know and understand our students’ well. Whilst acknowledging that we do have small class groups of students who have similar needs and therefore benefit from pooled resources, there are some who require bespoke interventions to improve their life chances.
What is pupil premium?

Newark Orchard School and Pupil Premium
The school will ensure that Pupil premium reaches the group it is intended for and ensure that it makes an impact on their education and development.
At Newark Orchard School the pupil premium will be used to provide additional interventions and support to help raise achievement.
The funding is aimed to close the gap between pupil premium students and their peers.
This is currently being achieved for the vast majority of pupils in receipt of Pupil Premium Funding.
How we will ensure the effective use of the pupil premium money.
The pupil premium money will be clearly identified.
Staff and the Senior Leadership Team will identify students and agree which interventions are appropriate to support the development of each student.
The Senior Leadership Team will report on the effective use of pupil premium to governors and report on the progress for all students.
Staff will track and analyse the impact of the strategies that are put into place to ensure value is added to the Pupil premium student’s progress.
Newark Orchard School will monitor and review the impact of interventions funded through the use of pupil premium.
