Pupil Premium and Project 100

School Aims

We aim to ensure that every child leaves Trenance Learning Academy excited about learning and determined to succeed.  We want to equip them with confidence, resilience and a passion for lifelong learning. The targeted and strategic use of Pupil Premium funding will support us in achieving our aims.


  • We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all pupils.
  • We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups. This specifically includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are addressed.
  • In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who are eligible for free school meals, (or have been eligible in the last 6 years) are socially disadvantaged.
  • We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. We therefore allocate Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils that the Academy has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.

Pupil Premium funding will be allocated following annual needs analyses which will identify priority classes and groups. Half termly tracking meetings will monitor the impact of targeted support for identified pupils. Children who are entitled to receive Pupil Premium funding are: children in receipt of free school meals, looked after children and children whose parent(s) are in the forces.
