Pupil Premium

Intervention is a high priority in our school. In September 2012, Holmwood School developed a programme to enables learners’ underperformance to be tackled at every level. The intervention programme provides additional support funded through the Government’s Pupil Premium. This allocation is for schools to support disadvantaged children in the way they deem appropriate for the needs of the learners and schools.  Many pupil’s that begin with us in Key Stage 1 or 2 and have made little progress due to part time tables, fixed term and permanent exclusions. Many of our pupil’s struggle with their vocabulary, basic skills, resilience and confidence. While many of our children are not meeting their age expected standards. We aim to close the gap.

We aim for our children to progress one years expectation or more in an academic year (Y2 entry to a Y3 entry) or one significant progress in the ELG or Pre Key Stage standards.. The school will be held accountable for the use of their Pupil Premium.

The progress is review of the last day of each term. This could result in the strategies being changed. Please see Action Plan for progress.

Holmwood School had the opportunity to present their successful Pupil Premium Intervention Programme at the Narrow the Gap Conference on December, 8th, 2014. Sir John Dunford was extremely pleased with the programme provided by Holmwood School.

In 2016, Chris Wain, Head Teacher at Pallister Park Primary School, approved and praised our pupil premium action plan and the impact. Pallister Park is a teaching school in Middlesbrough Local Authority.

In 2017 and 2018, we had our pupil premium action plan and its impact evaluated by a qualified and experienced source.

In 2019, we attend Durham University to discuss interventions that support rapid progress.

The use of pupil premium funding is reviewed yearly. The Action Plan is reviewed termly.

For 2019 – 2020 we have received £77 160

It is vitally important that no one displaying symptoms of Covid attends school

If your child or anyone in your household is showing the symptoms of Covid, all members of the household need to isolate immediately and the person with symptoms should have a Covid test.

The symptoms of Covid are:-

All members of the household must also isolate until the result of the test is back.  Please alert your child’s school if you have taken them for a test (and only access a COVID test for individuals if they develop symptoms).

Isolation means you should stay at home.  Do not go to work, go out shopping or take your children to school or nursery. You will need to make arrangements for family or friends to help out.  You should not socialise or have any visitors to your home.

If the test of the person with symptoms is negative, then no-one needs to isolate.

If the test of the person with symptoms is positive then the person who has tested positive for Covid must isolate for 10 days and everyone else in the house must isolate for 14 days.  Parents/carers should make schools/educational settings and workplaces aware of any positive test.  

Testing is available locally.  Anyone with any of the coronavirus symptoms is advised to book a test online www.nhs.uk/ask-for-a-coronavirus-test or by calling 119.

For further information about Covid, please call 111 or go to www.gov.uk/coronavirus

Home to School transport

If your child is going to be absent from school for any reason, including Covid-19 symptoms, and they receive designated Home to School transport from the Council please contact the transport team as soon as possible.  They will ask the transport provider not to attempt to pick up your child.  To resume transport, contact the team and they can resume arrangements for the next school day.
