WA Pupil Premium Strategy Statement 2023 to 2024

Waterside Academy receives additional funding based on the number of disadvantaged pupils at our school who were eligible for Free School Meals at any point in the last 6 years. The intended outcome of this funding is to close any gaps in progress and attainment between disadvantaged pupils and other pupils. This is a national focus for all schools.

Please note that due to the recent name change of the Academy, some of our policy documents are still branded and refer to the school as 'Hackney New School'. However, all policies are relevant to 'Waterside Academy' whilst we are in the process of updating these documents.
