2. To promote and maintain the best possible outcomes for children in receipt of the Pupil Premium so that they are at least in line with national average for similar pupils.

3. For Holbrook children and staff to feel valued and accepted to be their authentic self at school for example through their hairstyles, appearance, sexuality and a personalised approach to the uniform policy.
