Here at The Royal Harbour Academy we are proud of our Special Educational Needs programme and our focus on Pupil Premium. Please see below for more information.
The pupil premium is a grant given by the government to schools in England to decrease the attainment gap for the most disadvantaged children. At The Royal Harbour Academy we have 508 pupil premium students and the intervention created as a result of this significantly improves all student outcomes and drives up expectations and standards.
One of the biggest factors affecting student outcomes is low levels of literacy and this has a huge impact across every subject. Our intent is for all students to meet national or above national standards in reading and writing by the end of Year 8. We are meeting our intent with whole school literacy strategies including Talk for Writing, Bedrock and Guided Reading to name but a few. The curriculum in Year 7 & 8 makes a significant difference whereby literacy is carefully embedded in the curriculum across all subjects so that it is overtly taught alongside specialisms. Progress is tracked through a range of nationally standardised assessments throughout the year providing data for curriculum review and bespoke student interventions.
Our intent is that all pupil premium students are culturally enriched, have the very best teaching with high aspirations and they develop the confidence to succeed and achieve their full potential at GCSE and IB level.
