  • Alternative support and intervention within the school

Intended outcomes of spending Pupil Premium Funding:

All pupils to make at least expected progress and a closing of the gap between the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and all pupils.

 

Reporting Pupil Premium

It is the responsibility of the governors to explain pupil premium expenditure to parents in the form of an annual statement. There is no set format for the report of pupil premium. Queensway Primary School will publish details of a report online annually. This report aims to detail information on how Pupil Premium has been used within school. This report will detail the attainment and progress of pupils who are covered by the premium and the intervention that has been supported by the additional funding. Reports will also detail the progress made towards narrowing the gap and this will be supported by reported data and academic progress. Regular reports will be presented on the progress of pupils supported by Pupil Premium to the governing body sub-committees.

 

Reporting to Parents

Parents will be able to obtain information on the pupil premium via the school’s website. This will be updated annually.
