Disadvantaged Students

Context 2017

Strategic Overview

At North Durham Academy we hold inclusion, progression and excellence for all at our core. With 532 or 53% of the population students eligible for Disadvantaged students funding and we receive £503,120. We aim to direct this funding depending on each students’ individual need and have identified whether the need is Social, Emotional or Behavioral / Learning in the Curriculum / Enrichment Beyond the Curriculum / Focused on Family or Community, directing funding as appropriate to the need.The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools and is being used exclusively so that we can support disadvantaged students and close the attainment gap between them and their peers. Under the strategic leadership of our Principal and Local Governing Body, we use the Pupil Premium to fund three whole school activity types: Support, Intervention and Curriculum.
