Pupil Premium report to parents 2011 -  2012

Part of our school devolved budget is made up from funding which comes straight from Central Government and which is designed to support pupils in challenging circumstances. For our school this is, in the main, pupils who qualify for free school meals.

This additional funding was used to support:

  • Curriculum events - visitors in, visits to Greenbank pool and Strode pool
  • Coaching opportunities to support the Olympic Week
  • Extra booster resources to support learning in mathematics and literacy
  • The employment of additional teaching assistant support.

The most notable impact was an increase in the number of children attaining above level 2B in writing which had been a key focus. Results are all above the national average.

The Senior Leadership Team and Governors at Hindhayes Infant School regularly evaluate the Pupil Premium spending and the impact of the grant. Whole-school tracking of pupils’ progress and analysis of the data is carried out, to identify children who are at risk of underachievement, and specifically focus on the progress of pupils entitled to the Pupil Premium.
