Pupil Premium Hub

Outstanding Pupil Premium Hub

Support from Specialist teachers is brokered through the Wimborne Teaching School. A pupil premium review is a review of the provision your school makes for its disadvantaged pupils using its pupil premium funding. This is carried out by Jacquie Clarke, a specialist leader of education for Pupil Premium support.

Jacquie works with your school to develop effective strategies for spending the pupil premium funding to maximise its impact based on specific evidence-based interventions. It is carried out in partnership with a system leader, typically an NLE and 
SLE, who have a track record in of boosting disadvantaged pupils’ achievement.

Angela Lineton

SLE specialism - Deputy Head Teacher, Literacy Lead

School and job role

I have been a senior leader or Deputy Head at St. Nicholas and St. Laurence Primary School for many years. In addition, I taught Year 6 pupils for thirty years and lead English for many of those. Any one child has only one opportunity in each year group – it has to be right every year throughout the school. My aim is to give every pupil a chance in life, not just in English and Maths, it’s about them being confident, conscientious and resilient, developing an ‘open mind-set’ that enables them to become great learners.

Areas of expertise

  • Deputy Head
  • English
  • Year 6

Recent examples of work with other schools

  • I lead twilight training to disseminate leadership practice to senior and middle leaders.
