  • Welcome


    Dear Parents, We would both like to offer you a very warm welcome to The Crescent Academy. We encourage all of our parents to become a part of our rich and welcoming family.

  • Pupil Premium

    Pupil Premium Policy


    The school receives an amount of money each year to support the teaching and learning of disadvantaged children. At Crescent we spend this money on trying to narrow the gaps in attainment between such children and the rest of those across the country. Whilst we understand that not all disadvantaged children are underachieving the pupil premium money is used to give such children the very best life chances.




    The school does not use this policy to displace, rather to enhance, current strategies to intervene and support its pupils. Some pupils may be achieving well, but will be entitled to funding to enhance their future educational aspirations and achievements.


    • To provide all pupils with fair and equal opportunities to achieve and excel in all areas of the curriculum; using and applying the most effective pedagogy,  supported by use of additional, delegated funding. 
    • To work in partnership with families and pupils eligible for pupil premium, to plan, monitor and evaluate support and intervention in order to secure individual progress and achievement. 
    • To work with external partners and organisations to provide additional support for the social, emotional, health and wellbeing of all pupils with potential barriers to learning and achievement. 
    • To ensure governors fulfil statutory responsibilities to make effective use of pupil premium funds in order to impact positively on pupils' achievement and attainment. 


    Please see documents below to find out how we used that funding in 2017-2018 and our plans for 2018-2019.
