Objectives:

Our core aim is to raise the attainment and progress of students eligible for pupil premium funding so that their performance compares favourably with Non-Pupil Premium peers nationally. We will address inequalities in the education of students from low-income families and raise the attainment of these students. Outstanding teaching and learning is paramount to the progress of students from disadvantaged backgrounds. This remains a consistent and relentless focus. In addition to this, targeted intervention and support strategies are deployed.

We aim to:

  • Improve levels of attainment and progress;
  • Close attainment gaps relative to national averages;
  • Enhance reading, writing, mathematics and communication skills;
  • Engage and develop learning through a comprehensive extra-curricular provision that disadvantaged students might otherwise miss;
  • Raise aspirations for all, including for disadvantaged students, those with SEND and those with higher learning potential;
  • Develop digitally literate students who are able to make full use of the educational opportunities presented by modern technology;
  • Nurture students to be competitive, curious, happy, global citizens – prepared for the challenges and opportunities of the 21st Century;
  • Work in strong and transparent partnership with parents, carers and families;
  • Raise aspirations for all, including for disadvantaged students, those with SEND and those with higher learning potential;
  • Improve more sustained attendance and by doing so, contribute to students’  achievement;
  • Teaching and Learning is embedded to ensure learning is at the centre of what we do.
  • Through effective teaching, our aim is to support the progress of all students but particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds.

National Recognition:

In 2017 Denbigh High School was the East of England regional winner and the national runner-up at the National Pupil Premium Awards.
