Nightingale Community Academy’s senior leadership team continues to analyse the impact of additional funding on our students, including that of Pupil Premium which is additional funding provided by central government to support the achievement of students entitled to free school meals or those looked after by the local authority.
Based on an analysis of our end of KS2 and GCSE results, and on our attendance and exclusions data, there is no evidence of a significant difference in the achievement or risk of absenteeism or exclusion between those students who come from families eligible for the pupil premium and those who are not eligible. All of our students have significant additional needs, primarily Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) needs, which affect their ability to access and benefit from the curriculum, and all are considered to be amongst the most vulnerable of students.
