At Coleridge, we have high aspirations and ambitions for all our children, and believe that everyone, regardless of race, gender, disability or family circumstances, should have equal access to an outstanding education. Coleridge strives to inspire children to become creative problem solvers, ready to thrive and succeed in the 21st Century. We aim to give children a positive first experience of learning, and encourage them to be responsible citizens, who appreciate the value of community.
Pupil Premium funding is carefully targeted to support children from disadvantaged backgrounds to ensure they benefit from the same opportunities as students from less deprived families. At Coleridge, we ensure that spending is directly linked to narrowing the gaps in attainment between disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged children.
As a school, we have a good record of addressing the needs of our disadvantaged children. To ensure the best outcomes for our pupils, staff at the school have invested considerable time developing a bespoke system for tracking children’s progress, and for identifying barriers to learning. We do not rely solely on raw data to understand how our children are progressing; observations, learning walks, pupil progress discussions and lesson studies also contribute to our understanding of how different children are performing across the school.
For the year 2021/22, the school received £109,610 in Pupil Premium funding, which includes £10,150 of COVID-19 Recovery Premium.
