This will ensure that all our students’ are equipped with the knowledge and skills they will need to succeed in and beyond education.
No one left behind – To make certain our disadvantaged students’ attain equality in their outcomes, opportunities, experiences and futures as their more privileged peers.
Our strategy has been devised through the diagnosis of our students’ challenges and needs, it is evidence informed using up to date and relevant educational research published by a number of sources including the Education Endowment Fund (EEF) and its implementation and progress regularly monitored and evaluated to secure success.
