The Pupil Premium is a funding stream devolved to schools in order to close the achievement gap between the most disadvantaged students and their peers.
The Department for Education expects us to use the money to ensure that disadvantaged students at Queen's Park High School experience the learning, support and guidance that will enable them to achieve highly and move successfully to the next stage of their education. Our school is committed to narrowing the achievement gap between our disadvantaged students and the other members of our school community. In turn, we robustly monitor the performance of our students, and deploy our Pupil Premium funding to enact those strategies that will have a positive impact on their learning and performance. Furthermore, we use the Pupil Premium funding to develop the wider cultural literacy of our disadvantaged students, by supporting them to participate in school trips and extra-curricular activities.
Queen's Park High School is resolutely determined that those students who are disadvantaged will receive the very best in teaching and learning, so that by the time they leave us, they are ready to successfully take their place in the wider world.
Our Pupil Premium Strategy identifies how we spent our PP funding in the last financial year and its impact on the performance of disadvantaged students and includes the next steps we are taking to ensure that in our school the gaps continue to close.
