Performance & Policies
The Department for Education and Ofsted use a range of data to judge the performance of schools. A key source of data is a document called RAISE (Reporting and Analysis for Improvement through school Self-Evaluation). RAISE is published twice year. The first report is published in the Autumn Term and is based on ‘unvalidated data’; it is draft and can exclude any remarks. The final version is published in the Spring Term and is based on ‘validated data’; this is the final version and includes all remarks nationally.
Admission to Titus Salt School is controlled by Bradford Council and our official Pupil Admissions Number (PAN) is 240 but for the past four years, we have taken 10 more students above PAN which was originally at the request of the Local Authority, which required additional places in the city. The planned curriculum for 2016-2017 is staffed based on current student numbers and can accommodate projected numbers for Year 7 based on the previously agreed maximum of 250 – creating absolute maximum group sizes for classes at Key Stage 3.
This policy is under review in line with the Children's and Families Act 2014.
If you require a hard copy of this policy or any other school policy please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your address. There will be no charge for this service.
The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gives schools additional funding to support year 7 pupils who did not achieve at least level 4 in reading and/or maths at the end of key stage 2 (KS2).
Disadvantaged Students Policy 2016/17 formerly known as Pupil Premium
Pupil Premium is a government initiative designed to target resources on those students deemed to be from a financially disadvantaged background. Specifically, the Pupil Premium money is provided for those pupils who are on Free School Meals (FSM), who have been FSM at any point over the past 6 years (Ever6), those children who have been looked after by the local authority, continuously for at least 6 months (LAC) or have been LAC within the past 3 years (Ever 3).
