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
