Pupil Premium

The role of the Policy and the Committee is to remove any barriers to ensure successful intervention. With sensitivity as an upmost value, the Committee aims to produce:

  • Confident Students - adaptable and resilient, independent and engaged thinkers, effective communicators, with enhanced social and emotional skills and confident in other stakeholders’ efforts to support their progress.
  • Rapid and Sustained Progression – through the safe and secure realisation of enhanced ambition.
  • Effective Participators - play different roles within collaborative learning and take full part in school life both in school and beyond, that display positive behaviour and excellent attendance.

The Pupil Premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England. It’s designed to help disadvantaged pupils of all abilities perform better and close the gap between them and their peers. At NCS, we are committed to helping our students achieve results in line with all students nationally and to close the in-school attainment gap. We are also committed to ensuring that all students have the opportunity to participate in the rich extra-curricular life of the school so that they develop the right values and character to aid their long-term success. Pupil Premium funding is used to further these aims.
