Pupil Premium & Catch Up Premium

At EEHS, we recognise that the challenges that our disadvantaged students face are varied and there is no 'one size fits all'. 

'It's a thousand little moments that lead to attainment for Pupil Premium students' (Marc Rowland)

Common barriers to learning for disadvantaged students can include weak language and communication skills, lack of confidence, attendance and punctuality issues. There may be complex situations that prevent children from flourishing. With this in mind, we have developed a three wave (tiered) strategy that covers all aspects of pupil premium schooling through whole school, departmental and pastoral approaches.

Wave 1: School wide strategies available to all benefitting PP

Wave 2: Strategies targeting PP that close the gap

Wave 3: Targeted intervention for individual PP students

At EEHS, our ultimate objectives for our disadvantaged students are:

  1. To narrow the attainment gap between disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged students.
  2. To ensure that all PP students participate in the academic and wider curriculum to the same extent as their peers.
  3. To achieve wellbeing for all pupils, including those who are disadvantaged.
  4. To sustain improved attendance for all pupils, particularly our disadvantaged pupils’ persistent absence.
