Pupil Premium Funding
The Pupil Premium is additional funding, provided as part of a Government initiative designed to address the under-achievement of disadvantaged pupils. These pupils are identified as those who are (or have been) eligible for free school meals (FSM), or are looked after by the Local Authority (CiC).
Schools can decide how best to use this additional funding but they must report how it is used to parents and evaluate its impact on students eligible for free school meals.
At Hasland Hall Community School we will continue to aim to ‘narrow the gap’ between all students and Pupil Premium students. We welcome the recognition, identified within this initiative, that deprivation has a significant impact on achievement.
While the number of students receiving free school meals determines the funding for a specific school, it is with the understanding that this be regarded as a deprivation indicator, rather than a ‘ring-fenced’ budget, as schools are required to narrow any attainment gap by addressing the under-achievement of any cohort or group of students. Just as not all Pupil Premium students are underachieving when they enter the school, similarly not all others are achieving in line with expectation. The Pupil Premium funding underpins our strategy for addressing any underachievement. A key aspect of this will be maintaining relatively low staff-pupil ratios to ensure class sizes are manageable.
An outline of how we have targeted, and propose to target, the spending of this money can be found in the Pupil Premium Strategy 2019-20, together with an analysis of its impact.
The Year 7 Catch-Up Funding Report for 2014-19 is also available to view.
Parents’ Evening provides parents with a valuable opportunity to speak to teachers about their son/daughter’s progress. We would, therefore, ask that all parents attend. Students will be booking appointment times for their parents between 4.15pm and 7pm. If for particular reasons you are unable to attend, please contact the school to arrange an alternative time.
The Community Craft Club meets every Thursday from 6.00pm in the School dining room. The aim is to bring together people from the community who would like to share the enjoyment of crafting. They are currently undertaking a variety of craft projects which will lead to a sale for charity.

A Community Choir meets every Tuesday from 7.00pm to 8.30pm in the Music block at the school. The aim is to bring together people from the community who would like to share the enjoyment of singing together.
