Oxford Academy

Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium 

Our school has a large proportion of students who are entitled to the ‘ever six’ funding, in fact well above the national average. This statistical dynamic, along with the community we serve, are key elements in our approach. The first and largest strand sees a holistic commitment to providing quality whole school provision; which covers bespoke staffing models, strategic ‘additional-staffing’ in key subject areas and staff professional development. We believe this will enable students to reach their academic and emotional potentials through a supportive and structured school environment. The second strand has a clear focus on targeted early intervention in our Foundation Phase, alongside more consistent and regular supported intervention in our Accreditation Phase. These interventions can be more bespoke, and will include small cohort or even individual focuses. Students will be given access to a range of academic or pastoral based interventions that will be generated from a range of sources; these can include checkpoint data, attendance figures, parent/carer communication, the academy mentoring system and outside agency referral.
