Pupil Premium: Closing the gap

Poetry  helps to bridge the attainment gap in literacy and phonics. Memorising a poem enhances recall and literacy skills and gives an often much needed confidence boost to disadvantaged pupils, resulting in increased confidence and competence across the curriculum. I have worked with many disadvantaged pupils who grew to blossom and shine in small groups, achieving far more than they ever believed possible.
