Pupil Premium

The Cavendish School is a secondary school, where the number of pupils eligible for Pupil Premium is slightly above the national average.

In the academic year 2016/2017, The Cavendish School has 206 students on role eligible for pupil premium funding. Funds received from the Government for pupil premium are circa £235 620. This money has to be spent on strategies and interventions targeted at raising standards for the eligible students who are disadvantaged compared to their non-pupil premium peers, i.e. diminishing the difference.

Ofsted say:

"The school is beginning to make effective use of pupil premium funding and the gap in performance between disadvantaged students and others is narrowing. In 2014, their attainment was lower than that of their classmates and that found nationally by half a grade in English and one grade in mathematics. These students are now making progress closer to that of their peers in English, and reliable school assessments show that the picture is improving for 2015 in mathematics."


"Year 7 students who join the school with below-average attainment make good progress. This is because 'catch up' funding for these students is used to give them individual help in reading, writing and mathematics."
