Pupil Premium

The Government provides all schools with additional funding to help close the gaps in academic results and progress over time between those students who are on free school meals (or have been during the last six years) and the rest of the students in the school.  At The Dorcan Academy, we share the Government's determination that there should be no gap between the achievement of students receiving Pupil Premium funding and their peers.  We are working hard to ensure that all Dorcan students are equally able to take advantage of the opportunities the school has to offer.

Pupil Premium funding was first introduced in 2011. Schools are able to make choices about how they use their allocation of the funding. This is because the Government believes that schools are best placed to use the funding purposefully depending upon their own local circumstances.

At Dorcan, our focus on supporting some students through Pupil Premium funding is one important element of our wider vision.  We want all of our students, regardless of their social and academic background, to fulfil their potential. This means our students achieving the best they possibly can at school and moving on to courses and careers which match their abilities and which challenge and reward them.

At The Dorcan Academy we take our responsibilities for ensuring the progress of all children very seriously.  It is our intention to allocate Pupil Premium funding to help ensure that all groups of students make outstanding and comparable progress. The declarations below show how the Academy has spent this additional income, and the most recent gives detail of our forthcoming plans. They include an impact statement which shows the effect that this is having on student progress.
