Hollingworth School is a great place to be; with a friendly atmosphere, hardworking and well behaved children, dedicated and talented staff, and an interested, supportive community. We pride ourselves in providing opportunities for all our pupils to achieve their full potential educationally, emotionally and socially. Our Ofsted inspection in November 2011 recognised that good care, guidance and support ensure that pupils feel safe, behave well and gain a good understanding of healthy lifestyles.


We are a long established school, having reached our centenary year in 2009, and are committed to the principles of healthy, active and environmentally ‘friendly’ living. The school has an active School Council, which provides a voice for all children throughout the school. We also hold Healthy School status; we regularly support the work of charities - both local and national.


We have an active and very supportive PTA, and an equally proactive Governing Body that works positively in the best interests of the children of the school.

Pupil Premium


Rationale and plan for use to support the raising of attainment for disadvantaged pupils


The aim of the Government's new Pupil Premium is to raise achievement among disadvantaged children. It will provide additional funding for disadvantaged pupils to ensure they benefit from the same educational opportunities as pupils from wealthier families. Although the precise mehanism for allocation and evaluation is still being finalised, the amount per pupil has been announced initially as £430 for 2011/12, then perhaps rising to as much as £1750 by 2014/15.

The Pupil Premium has a number of wider aims:

  • to increase social mobility;
  • to enable more pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds to get to the top universities;
  • to reduce the attainment gap between the highest and lowest achieving pupils nationally.

Impact of Pupil Premium funding

In Key Stage 1 FSM children have attained better in all three subjects than their peer group nationally. In Key Stage 2 the largest difference in attainment is in reading and this is being addressed through our school development plan through the delivery of Better Reading Partnership, a successful reading
