St. Andrew's CE Primary School - Equalities Target

 

  1. Achievement

Our equalities target for 2017/18 is to ensure that all pupils including children with SEND and children who are eligible Pupil Premium Funding/ Pupil Premium Plus will make at least good progress relevant to their starting positions.

 

  1. Attainment

To ensure that we continue to reduce the gap in attainment of children in receipt of Pupil Premium/Pupil Premium Plus and children nationally who are not in receipt of pupil premium.
