Pupil Premium

The Park Hall Academy curriculum is underpinned by the ‘4 Big Ideas’ – Every Child A Reader, A Love of Learning, Be Inspired Be Aspirational, Expert Learners. At Park Hall Academy we focus upon raising attainment for all and ensuring that the achievement of all learners, including those from disadvantaged backgrounds, remains a priority. Through the provision of high-quality learning and teaching, all learners are supported to become independent, motivated and curious young people who see their lives as full of possibilities. 

Our intent is to maximise the impact of our pupil premium spending through a research based, three tiered approach to Pupil Premium. This approach ensures the academy is able to balance approaches to ensuring high quality Teaching, Targeted Academic Support and Wider Strategies for all pupils over a three year period. We will focus on the challenges that can affect the attainment of our disadvantaged pupils. Our approach will be evidence based, in response to diagnostic/ assessment information and observations and not on assumptions.

We strongly believe that every member of the Park Hall family can achieve success. Together we can remove barriers to learning through a shared ethos centered around positive growth mindsets; believing that there are no limits to our success.

‘This is a positive, focused school where leaders have ensured that every action and strategy is focused on the needs of the Park Hall pupils to ensure they all thrive.’ (NLE, DAP Best Practice Visit October 22)

We intend to:

  • ensure that all pupils, irrespective of background fulfil their potential and develop the knowledge and skills necessary to become successful independent learners who are prepared for the next stages of their learning journey.
  • Adopt a whole school approach in which all staff understand and take responsibility for the outcomes of all pupils and raise expectations of learners to ensure that they understand what they can achieve.
  • Provide all children with fair and equal opportunities to excel
  • Diminish the difference between pupil groups

Work in partnership with families and external agencies to ensure that we provide the very best opportunities for our children and families, enabling success
