Pupil premium and recovery premium
Pupil premium is funding to improve education outcomes for disadvantaged pupils in schools in England. Evidence shows that disadvantaged children generally face additional challenges in reaching their potential at school and often do not perform as well as other pupils. More information about pupil premium is available here:
The recovery premium is additional funding following the COVID-19 lockdown to help children recover some of their lost learning from not being in school.
Our strategy statement explains how our pupil premium and recovery premium is being spent and the outcomes that are being achieved for pupils.
PE and sport premium
The PE and sport premium is additional government funding which we have used to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of the PE, physical activity and sport offered through our core budget. The documents below set out the funding we have received, how we have spent it, and the impact it has had.
Public sector equality duty
Sacred Heart is a very diverse, inner-city school. The proportions of our children who are from minority ethnic backgrounds, have English as an additional language, or are known to be eligible for free school meals are all well above average.
The Equality Act 2010 makes it unlawful to discriminate against anyone because of age, gender, race, disability, religion or belief, sexual orientation, gender reassignment and pregnancy or maternity (the protected characteristics). It placed a duty on public bodies to have due regard to the need to:
- Eliminate discrimination and other conduct that is prohibited by the Act,
- Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it,
- Foster good relations across all characteristics – between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it.
Details of how we comply with the public sector equality duty, and our equality objectives, are in the policy below.
