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

 In-school barriers (issues to be addressed in school, such as poor oral language skills)

  1.  

Combined number of children on the FSM register and SEND register.

  1.  

Low attention, lack of self-motivation, social and emotional difficulties

C.

Poor language and EAL language barriers

D.

Poor Oracy and comprehension skills both in English and Mathematics

 

Strategies:

The school is employing strategies to improve attainment and achievement:

  • Quality first teaching with targeted ‘pre-teach’ and targeted interventions to fill skills and knowledge gaps.
  • Quality feedback, immediate verbal feedback is recognised as high impact and lower cost.
  • Closely monitored Pupil progress conversations with SLT, SENCo termly.
  • Mathematics and English Mastery adopted in school with completed training for all staff.
  • Catch up funding used to employ specialist support to engage readers.
  • Higher tier vocabulary – use of concepts, planned introduction of P4C to encourage resilience, self-motivation, peer learning and questioning – this is introduced to support ‘word/vocabulary impoverished’ children (both pupil premium and non-pupil premium children).
  • Resources both electronically and paper based to support home learning.

External barriers (issues which also require action outside school, such as low attendance rates)

 

D.

Difficult home situations with limited support

E.

Low level of attendance

F.

Low starting point/entry attainment

G.

Low self-esteem/poor educational backgrounds of parents including learning difficulties eg dyslexia

 

 

Strategies: Teachers have found on occasion that some of our disadvantaged children have parents who are a bit more difficult to engage.  We need pupil focussed, non-threatening ways to engage with parents.  This has become more of a concern during the coronavirus lock downs.

  • An ‘open door’ policy where parents are encouraged to speak to the staff about any of their concerns.
  • Meetings, phone calls, team meetings and workshops (planned for EYFS, Mathematics & English Mastery)
  • Links with support agencies (EHAF, Children’s centres, S&L etc)
  • Parent evenings
  • Review meetings
  1. Desired outcomes

 

 

Desired outcomes and how they will be measured

Success criteria

  1.  

Targets for each year group has been set as part of Performance management

Meeting the target for performance management – monitored termly through pupil progress discussions

  1.  

Actions plans in place to give the best opportunity to meet their potential

TA timetable, where possible, has been modified to support the requirements of each cohort

  1.  

Pupils eligible for PP will make accelerated progress in reading, writing and maths from their starting point with accelerated outcomes for identified individuals.

This will close the gap between outcomes for non- disadvantaged pupils.
