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.
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.
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.
