Pupil Premium Funding 


Sandhurst Presentation made to the Sandhurst Military College regarding how we apply our Pupil Premium funding into care and resources for our students.

The Pupil Premium  (PP) is additional funding given to schools by the government to support disadvantaged students such as those receiving Free School Meals, Service Children and young people In Care.

The funding is used to support PP students to diminish the difference in their learning compared to that of non PP.

The school tracks PP students with regards to attendance, pastoral well-being and academic progress.

If you require any further details of how PP funding is allocated, please see the Interventions and Provision below and contact Ms Rowley (Headteacher), Mr Hicken (Deputy Headteacher) or Mrs Woodhams (Assistant Headteacher).

2017 -18


At The Wavell School we believe in our school moto of ‘We Care to Challenge’ for all abilities of students, ensuring that we give them aspiration to progress onto Further and Higher education or apprenticeships. We have invested in overstaffing to ensure we have appropriate class sizes and are striving to ensure that all lessons would be judged as at least ‘good’. We have a Learning Support Team who are highly qualified. We are always striving to improve our support of the disadvantaged and diminish the difference in their progress.
