Pupil Premium Strategy Statement: Bourne Community College 2017-18
“’Disadvantaged pupils’ are those who attract pupil premium funding, meaning pupils claiming free school meals at any point in the last six years and pupils in care, or who left care through adoption or another formal route. Evidence shows that the progress and achievement of disadvantaged pupils is normally lower than that of ‘other’ pupils.” Ofsted Data Dashboard.
The government allocates this funding to schools and it is our responsibility to ensure that it is used effectively to support disadvantaged students and narrow or eliminate the gap between the achievements of disadvantaged students and those who are not. At Bourne Community College, we track and monitor all spending of PP funds and ensure that the impact is strategically monitored to ensure it is being used to maximum effect.

At Bourne Community College:
“Disadvantaged pupils are now making similar progress to their peers and to other pupils nationally.” Ofsted Report 2016.
The gap between attainment of students who receive PP funding and those who don’t widened in 2016 but “Current gaps are closing rapidly or have closed across year groups and subjects, because leaders ensure that pupils’ achievement is tracked rigorously and effective support is given swiftly when pupils are in danger of falling behind.” Ofsted Report 2016.
At Bourne, we aim to ensure the following are in place for disadvantaged students:
- High expectations reflected in aspirational target grades.
- Effective quality first teaching and targeted wave one intervention.
- Widening cultural capital by provision of extra-curricular opportunities.
- Rigorous tracking and monitoring of student progress and providing wave two and three interventions where necessary.
