    2. Mentoring schemes to raise aspirations and expectations (to include support for independent study, revision for exams etc).
    3. Continue to challenge and support disadvantaged students with attendance issues.
    4. Ghost forms (core subjects) and external tutoring programme.
    5. Whole school literacy improvement plan targeting reading.
    6. Financial support for disadvantaged students to enhance and enrich their learning as and when appropriate.
