Progress is the amount and speed our pupils learn from when they start with us.
- Over 70% of students in all key stages made good progress (2012).
- 2012 to 2013 we aim to make this 85% pupils making good progress.
We thank parents for the help they give in making sure their child comes to school regularly.
- Attendance continues to improve across ACE and is now 10% higher than last year (November 2012 compared to November 2011). We want this to improve further.
- Good attendance in school is the key to your child’s success. We have a dedicated team of staff to support good attendance.

Every school has a duty to ensure that every individual child is given the best possible chance of achieving their potential.
The Government provides Pupil Premium funding to help address national inequalities between the achievements of children eligible for free school meals or children in care when compared with their wealthier peers.
The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools based on the number of students who are known to be eligible for free school meals and children who have been continuously looked after for more than six months.
It is for each school individually to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent since we are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual students.
2011 / 2012
ACE was not given a Pupil Premium allocation
2012 / 2013
ACE has been allocated £57005
We are spending this to enhance our curriculum in four areas. We will measure the success of the projects by analysing the improvement in progress and exam outcomes for these pupils.
Learning outside the classroom
Through supporting a dynamic learning outside the classroom curriculum we ensure that pupils learn about their physical and emotional health and resilience. The funds will be used to enable these children to engage with focused study sessions outside the schoolroom .
Alternative learning pathways
We have purchased new software resources for use with these children on a one to one basis.
Literacy support lessons
The extra resources have allowed us to timetable ‘literacy catch up’ for children operating below national average. These take the form of an experienced trained teacher and a TA working with up to 3 pupils at any one time, three times a week.
Raising teenage girls aspirations
We have identified a group of girls who would under-achieve and have low esteem and poor motivation for their futures. We have appointed a senior teacher to lead activities specifically aimed at these young women.
