How is the Pupil Premium Grant spent at Weatherfield Academy?
We have always looked at the Education Endowment Fund recommendations, which have been incorporated into the menu for Pupil Premium spending guidance. The report and our overview of spending show that we target our support and spend a significant amount in wider strategies which address our non-academic barriers to success in education.
The quality of Teaching and Learning underpins all of this and some funding has been targeted in this area in recent years. Weatherfield Academy staff, parents and Governors have always felt that the funding should be spent wherever the need is greatest. In looking at the journey throughout the school, a consistency of spend has always been seen as vital to support the learning and engagement from 7 to 19 years of age.
