Please find attached our Strategy for this year.
We are aiming to continue:
|In-school barriers (issues to be addressed in school, such as poor oral language skills)|
|A.||Disadvantaged Readers performed significantly lower than to in school and national. (Continued from last year)|
|B.||Disadvantaged maths progress is lower than national and compared to other children internally.|
|C.||PPG pupil’s vocabulary in all subjects is weak compared to others (21 million words compared to 43 million word exposure). (continued from last year)|
|External barriers (issues which also require action outside school, such as low attendance rates)|
|D.||Home circumstances affecting aspirations, readiness to learn and attendance rates reduce progress rates for our pupils. Attendance rates for pupils eligible for PP are 96.22% (below the target for all children of 97%). This reduces their school hours and causes them to fall behind on average. (Data Dashboard and inspection dashboard). This is compounded by the high % of pupils who are both disadvantaged and are also on our Barrier to learning list, such as: the IDACI strands: Income Deprivation / Employment Deprivation / Education, Skills and Training Deprivation / Health Deprivation and Disability / Crime / Barriers to Housing and Services / Living Environment Deprivation. This will also include new EHA assessments we also include mental health and wellbeing, access to services.|
