Barriers to future attainment (for pupils eligible for PP, including high ability)

In-school barriers (issues to be addressed in school)

  • Pupils eligible for PP and with high potential (disadvantaged most able) do not achieve as well as other high ability pupils across Key Stage 1. This prevents sustained high achievement in Key Stage 2.
  • A significant proportion of PP pupils do not read regularly or have access to high quality reading materials at home, limiting their progress in reading.
  • Lower progress and attainment in reading and writing, particularly with PP children on the SEND register.
  • Behaviour issues for a small number of pupils (mostly eligible for PP) are having a detrimental effect on their academic progress and that of their peers.

External barriers (issues which also require action outside school)

  • Parents of some PP pupils are reluctant to engage in effective home-school partnership working and struggle to support their children’s learning.
  • A relatively high number of families of PP pupils are currently or have previously been working with family support services and the children experience social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) issues as a result of circumstances beyond school.

 

 

Desired outcomes

Success criteria

To ensure all disadvantaged children reach their end of year targets.

All disadvantaged children will have reached their academic end of year target in July 2019. Where this is not the case, case studies will demonstrate the circumstances around this and the way in which the grant has been used to support these children in their learning.

To ensure Pupil Premium children make accelerated progress when compared to last year.

All disadvantaged children will have made accelerated progress from the start of the year when compared to the previous academic year. Where this is not the case, case studies will demonstrate the circumstances around this and the way in which the grant has been used to support these children in their learning.

To raise the percentage of disadvantaged children achieving age-related expectations at the end of each Key Stage.

All disadvantaged children will have reached their academic end of year, EYFS, KS1 or KS2 targets in July 2019. A higher percentage of disadvantaged children will have achieved age-related expectations and greater depth when compared to the school’s own data for 2017-18 and national data for 2018. Where this is not the case, case studies will demonstrate the circumstances around this and the way in which the grant has been used to support these children in their learning.
