Pupil Premium Funding

The Education Endowment Foundation

The EEF recommend research evidenced strategies for raising attainment amongst disadvantaged groups. Their findings suggest that strategies such as feedback, metacognition, reading comprehension programmes, mastery, small group tuition and peer tutoring raise the attainment of both vulnerable students and other students alike. We have focused on these strategies.
