Pupil Premium Statement
Hollingworth Primary School is committed to providing high quality education and experiences for all our pupils.
Pupil Premium Strategy 2017-18
The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers.
All members of staff and governors accept responsibility for ‘socially disadvantaged’ pupils and are committed to meeting their pastoral, social and academic needs within the school environment. At Hollingworth Primary School, we are committed to ‘Closing the Gap’ between vulnerable pupils and the pupil premium often forms a vital part of that process.
It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility, specifically for those legitimately identified as being disadvantaged. However, schools are accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support the pupils mentioned above.
29% of children are in receipt of Pupil Premium funding which is above the national average.
The estimated grant allocation for 2017-2018 is £77,033
Reporting Pupil Premium
It is the responsibility of the governors to explain pupil premium expenditure to parents in the form of an annual strategy statement. We will publish details on how Pupil Premium has been used within school, details of attainment and progress of pupils who are covered by the premium and interventions that have been delivered by the additional funding. Regular updates to Governors will also detail the progress made towards closing the gap.
