High Attaining Pupils

What is a High Attaining Pupil (HAP)?

HAP stands for High Attaining Pupils based on their key stage 2 data. As a school, we are required to use their KS2 English (reading) and Maths test scores on completion of their primary school phase. Their results in both papers are combined to calculate a KS2 average point score for every student. This average point score is what is used to classify all students as; HAP,MAP or LAP.

Opportunities for HAPS
All staff have a responsibility to know who the HAP’s are and to ensure that their planning addresses their needs.
