Pupil Premium (2014/15)

Pupil Premium (2014/15)

From September 2012, schools are required to report on how their Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) has been deployed. Schools are also asked to track and report on the impact that PPG has had on student attainment, Looked-After Children, students who are eligible for Free School Meals.

Park High School has always worked hard to help students overcome disadvantage. We invest a great deal of money to help students overcome disadvantage – a great deal more than the pupil premium brings in.

In summary, the way we use our resources and the pupil premium funding enables our Pupil Premium (PP) students make significantly better progress than similar students nationally and this sometimes enables our PP students to make even better progress than our non-PP students.

At Park High School we have implemented a range of strategies which support the students who qualify for pupil premium. Our goal is to narrow the gaps in achievement which may exist between those on Free School Meals, students who are looked after and those who are not.
