Disadvantaged Students

Disadvantaged Students

The term ‘Disadvantaged’ is used by the government to encompass those children whose parents may be from an armed forces background, who are ‘looked-after’, adopted, have free school meals (FSM) or who have had FSM in the past six years.


Our Vision

We believe that:

  • Disadvantaged Students can achieve as well as other students;
  • academic success is valuable and we wish all our students and parents to have a similar view;
  • every student can achieve to the best of his/her ability, as long as he/she has the right support and works hard;
  • good emotional and social well-being are essential;
  • varied opportunities are important for growth and ambition.


Our Commitment

We are committed to:

  • remaining ambitious for all our students;
  • providing a contact for all Disadvantaged Students and parents;
  • tracking the performance and impact of interventions/preventions;
  • reviewing Our Offer at least twice a year.


We endeavour to support students in ways which will have a positive impact on progress, attainment and attendance.
