Schoolsworks is a multi-academy trust in West Sussex. Our aim is to create small hubs of schools which work closely together to collaborate, share best practice and improve outcomes for children.



School Performance

Academic achievement is very important. We want our pupils to achieve as highly as they can and this means making the progress we would expect and more. It is our responsibility to deliver a curriculum which excites and engages our children and at the same time gives them the skills and knowledge they need for the future.

Pupil Premium

The pupil premium is additional funding given to schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and close the gap between them and their peers.

It is thought to be the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and those who are not eligible, by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

The allocation of Pupil Premium is based on the number of pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years (FSM(Ever 6)).

Schools also receive pupil premium funding for children of service personnel or those who fall into one of the following categories:

  • a special guardianship order;
  • adoption
  • a residence order;
  • a child arrangement order;
    and has been in local-authority care for 1 day or more
    or is in local authority care.

We are committed to ensuring that Pupil Premium funding is used to:

  • raise attainment and promote social skills;
  • close the gap between the achievement of the identified pupils and their peers;
  • raise pupil attainment through the provision and implementation of a variety of educational support programmes;
  • focus and address the underlying inequalities between the identified pupils and their peers with regard to pupil well-being and academic development.

Sports Premium

Since April 2013 the government has provided additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools.

This funding has been jointly allocated by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport.

Purpose of Funding

Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but schools have been given the freedom to choose how they do this.

The overall objective is to show that their spending has led to a “direct and sustained” improvement in sporting provision.

Catch up planning post Lockdown

The government have released funding of £80 per child to help support children and young people to catch up lost time after school closure. This is especially important for the most vulnerable and disadvantaged backgrounds. 

Schools are to use this funding for specific activities to support their pupils to catch up for lost teaching over the previous months, in line with the curriculum expectations.

While schools can use their funding in a way that suits their cohort and circumstances, they are expected to use this funding for specific activities which will help pupils catch up on missed education.

To see our plan for supporting the children to catch up lost learning time please see below:

Celebrating success across the curriculum

 Rock challenge

Over the last four years we have taken part in 'The Rock Challenge®' which was introduced to the United Kingdom in 1996 by Hampshire Constabulary with the aim to help young people enjoy school and live pro-active and positive lifestyles free of tobacco, alcohol, and other drugs. 

Schools compete in major theatre venues across the United Kingdom. They spend the day rehearsing in front of their peers and supporting o­ne another before performing their 5-8 minute dance, drama and design piece to a live audience of friends, family, VIP guests and a panel of judges. Marked in three criteria areas- production, design and performance- schools are presented o­n stage at the end of the evening show with Awards of Excellence in a variety of areas. The top placing teams are also announced and qualify through to a regional final where they are invited to compete with other winners from across the country.

Over the last four years we have won our area competition and gone through to the final stage. On one of those years we placed fifth against other primary schools.

Our dance was called 'Believe' this year - it was about the power of reading.
