Early night tonight then staff it will good to come away from the screen. If brain still active read in low light, listen to a podcast or a calm sleep story even better. Take notice of the mattress beneath you all along your body, and sleep........#recharge https://t.co/lHHFG0nTUc

I thank you for all you are doing in a difficult time. You have made such a difference to my daughter. So important for our children to talk at the moment. Our children are suffering inside just as much if not more than us adults but don't know how to tell us. Well done! https://t.co/VXsbXEMvyl

Got the balance right with the students in Live lessons, broken up by a period of no screen time to chat and hydrate, lunch time to refuel and a period at the end to discuss the day and clean down our areas. How quickly a routine can be embedded!

Later than normal as did not wake up until 9.00, mentally tired! But nothing like the Saturday morning Parker house disco to get me going. A great workout with the 'Cha Cha Slide' (I'll spare you the video :) ) This is the best part of my week! https://t.co/NFvcQI9d6s

Students are growing by the day. Live lessons; focused, interacting and time made for more chat on diversity, able to talk two other languages, being a twin, having dyslexia and the yearn to travel to see the Statue of Liberty and pyramids of Giza

Another good day with keyworkers with core subject covered together with a discussion on diversity. Shared their interests from golf to the Isle of Man TT and their coping strategies from walking, taking in surroundings to listening to The Beatles

Oh it's Saturday, so Parker disco time. This week is more like a service with a mixture of Christmas carols and songs. A good old bellow, good for the lungs and heart. Each one that comes on is my favourite. Feel free to join in!

Wishing all the community of staff, students, parents/carers and all our supporters a safe and relaxed seasonal break. Take time to reflect, time for self-care, to remember and prepare our mindset for the beginning of 2021. We enter this together.

Outstanding Education

Supporting primary and secondary schools across Essex and North & East London, BMAT is a growing multi-academy trust with a singular vision: schools, teachers and pupils freed to succeed.

Pupil Premium

In 2011-12 the government launched its Pupil Premium funding. This money is sent to schools and academies based on the number of pupils who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM). Since 2012-13 it has been expanded to include all children who have been eligible for FSM within the last 6 years.

This money is allocated to initiatives to ensure these pupils reach their full potential, both academically and socially.

Catch- up Premium

  1. How much funding did we receive this year?

This year we have received £18,620 Catch Up Premium. The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gives schools additional funding to support Year 7 pupils who did not achieve the expected standard in reading and maths at the end of Key Stage 2.

How do we intend to spend this year’s allocation?

We have allocated the funding to support our pupils in the following ways:

Actions Cost
Year 7 Literacy Toolbox with HLTA Intervention £3050

How last year’s allocation made a difference to the outcomes of the pupils?

To measure the impact of the additional funding received, all ATT academies use GL Assessments to benchmark, measure and analyse the progress made by each pupil. GL Assessments provide nationally recognised Standardised Age Scores which can be used to robustly analyse if progress has been made. Standardised Age Scores show that a pupil is working at age related expectation if the score is 100 or more (2016 onwards)/level 4b prior to this.

By the end of the academic year, there were only 32 students in English and 13 students in Maths who were identified as not working at ARE of 100, based on the summer term GL assessments.

The term by term impact of our English and Maths interventions can be summarised in the tables on the following pages.
