We are particularly pleased that our disadvantaged students’ progress is notably stronger than the average Progress 8 score for non-disadvantaged students nationally (National non-disadvantaged 0.15). Our continued focus on all students as individuals and a whole school disadvantaged plan has meant that our internal gap has narrowed.
