STRATEGIC USE OF PUPIL PREMIUM TO IMPROVE OUTCOMES FOR PUPILS – 2012-2013

‘Pupil Premium’ is a special government grant to ensure that children with the highest economic needs have additional opportunities to achieve.

(Qualifying children have parents or carers who have received benefits at some point during the last 6 years.)

It is for schools to determine how to spend these additional funds to make the biggest difference – to maximise impact on the children’s Reading, Writing and Mathematics results.

Our Governors are interested in hearing parents and carers views on what would help their child.

All the programmes funded benefit the children in school who are underperforming, assessments are undertaken prior to choosing children to target, to ensure that those most in need are chosen. All children then benefit as the spread of achievement in the year group is narrowed and the gap is narrowed for the whole year group.

Measuring The Impact Of PPG Spending

HortonPark Primary Schoolmeasures the impact of interventions by:

  • Tracking all children’s progress carefully and discussing their needs on a regular basis.
  • Measuring children’s success at the end of each key stage, and particularly key stage 2, against national measures.
  • Monitoring children’s success in accessing additional educational and pastoral support
