Pupil Premium Information
At Bordon Junior School, our intention is that all pupils, irrespective of their background or the challenges they face, make good progress and achieve high attainment across all subject areas. The focus of our pupil premium strategy is to support disadvantaged pupils to achieve that goal, including progress for those who are already high attainers.
Educational research is at the core of the strategies we implement for all our pupils. It is the driving force that allows us to explore and deliver a range of support geared towards improving the achievement of pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds. In the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) guide, consistent, high quality teaching in every classroom is fundamental in ensuring that pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds reach their full potential. We are committed to expanding our knowledge through regular, professional reading, training and working with educational professionals within the academy trust and outside the setting. We share knowledge and research through weekly training and staff meetings and have used whole school training projects including Accelerated Reader.
Our research- based approach forms the foundation on how we allocate our funding to support teaching, targeted academic support and wider school strategies. Our approach is continually under review, based on diagnostic assessment and changing needs.
