It is a fact that the progress and attainment of disadvantaged pupils in the UK falls dramatically short of their more advantaged peers and the picture within the East Riding mirrors that of the rest of the country.
In order to redress this imbalance, the Local Authority has introduced a clearly focused drive to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils.
Under the heading of ‘ASPIRE’ (Aspire, Secure, Provide, Intervene, Respond, Evaluate), schools have been asked to sign up to a ‘disadvantage charter’, designed to improve outcomes for disadvantaged pupils.
To support and encourage this vital work in schools, the Local Authority is providing a range of ASPIRE CPD events and supporting documentation to raise awareness of the impact of disadvantage and to improve the outcomes for these pupils.
Please download the following pdf documents and use as a guide to raising attainment for disadvantaged pupils.
