Main barriers to educational achievement faced by eligible pupils at the school
A large proportion of the children enter the school below age related expectations with a high level presenting with speech and language issues. Parenting issues are also a focus for a number of targeted families. A high proportion of families are experiencing financial pressures as well as housing difficulties, this can have an impact on a family’s ability to provide for all of their children’s needs and impact their academic progress.
How pupil premium is spent to overcome those barriers and the reasons for that approach
We employ a parent advisor full time in order to support parents with the many pressures they are facing and to work with them to help them support their children’s educational progress and general welfare.
We fund parent workshops and resources to enable parents to better support their child’s learning at home.
We fund places at breakfast club, afterschool clubs and school journey in order that children have a balanced breakfast before the school day and can access all activities the school provides as part of balanced curriculum without cost being a barrier.
We target specific subject based support to enable children to catch-up on learning – this is through the use of external intervention programmes, teacher and TA support.
How we measure the effect of the pupil premium
All interventions are evaluated half termly or at end of provision. Pupils’ levels of attainment and engagement are monitored before and after. TAs provide written feedback to teachers/inclusion managers half-termly.
Teachers carry out half termly and termly assessments. Progress is reviewed by Inclusion Manager and SLT.
Parent Advisor takes part in termly Attendance, Vulnerable and SEN (AVS) meetings feeding back on progress. Parent Advisor provides termly and annual report to Governors
Feedback from parents.
