Trinity Academy Newcastle - Pupil Premium
The Government introduced the Pupil Premium in April 2011. It is intended to "help schools narrow the attainment gap that still exists between pupils from disadvantaged and more affluent backgrounds". It is ring-fenced to ensure that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who are in most need of it.
Trinity Academy is a SEMH school in an area of high deprivation. The 3 wards we serve have the highest unemployment rates in Newcastle Upon Tyne, approximately 4 times the national average. At Trinity Academy, we have relentlessly continued to close the gap between learners and national expectations for attainment.
Our strategy for Pupil Premium spend is to ensure each individual is prepared and motivated to learn and resources are targetted to maximise success. The barriers to educational achievement that our disadvantaged children face are complex and varied. They range from social and economic deprivation to emotional trauma and safeguarding concerns.
Many learners have had disrupted learning in their education at previous placements and so have a low starting point.
In 2022, the academy was eligible to receive the Pupil Premium in respect of 82% of pupils, this totals £135,065.00.
The pupil premium strategy will next be reviewed in December 2023.
