Identified Barriers to Progress

Children entitled to Pupil Premium may face barriers to making the expected and exceeding progress measures.

Identified barriers are:

In School Barriers

  • Historically support has not been targeted sufficiently at younger pupils and gaps in attainment have become embedded.
  • Progress of some boys writing and some girls mathematics is not rapid enough mid key stage two.

External Barriers

  • Historically attendance rates were lower for some pupil premium children than their non-pupil premium peers. This has now improved but in certain cases is having long-term impact.
  • A number of pupil premium children face additional challenges of disrupted home circumstances.
  • A number have SEND siblings
  • A number face challenges of social and emotional needs which are impacting on progress.
  • Some Pupil Premium parents feel less secure in supporting children with academic school work.
 

Focus of Pupil Premium Funding 2017/2018

We recognise that one to one tuition is highly beneficial and children make most progress working one to one and in very small groups.

A large proportion of our Pupil Premium money is spent on this intervention.

We aim to:

  • Maximise progress and attainment of all Pupil Premium children, including More Able children
  • Support children’s social, emotional, mental health and well being
  • Ensure parents are supported to help deliver the best outcome for their children
  • Offer equal opportunities to all children, including access to extra-curricular activities such as music tuition and sports clubs.

Our Pupil Premium funding is used to support:
