Percentage of pupils achieving the expected standard at the end of Key Stage 1:

11 pupils (15% of the cohort) were in receipt of Pupil Premium

Reading: 5/11 pupils (45%) achieved the expected standard, compared with 76% of non pupil premium pupils – an in school difference of 31% and a 31% difference with all pupils nationally

Attendance:

The attendance of disadvantaged pupils in 2015-16 was 96.8%, compared with 97% for other pupils in our school and a national average (2015) of 96%.

The proportion of disadvantaged pupils classed as persistent absentees in 2015-16 was 9.4% (equivalent to two pupils in the group), compared with 2.2% for other pupils in our school. One of the two pupils concerned had an extended absence (almost a term) due to a serious illness.

Issues arising from this review:

  • The proportions of disadvantaged pupils are relatively small in most year groups (less than 4 per cohort of 75/90 pupils, other than the cohort ending KS1 in 2016 (15%). It is, therefore difficult to identify trends related to any specific barrier to learning.
  • Barrow Hall received a national award for the progress of Disadvantaged pupils over the three years 2012-14. However, the outcomes for disadvantaged pupils in 2015 and 2016 have not been in line with other pupils
  • Disadvantaged pupils will need significant additional focus in 2015-16 to ensure strong rates of progress and differences with other pupils close.
  • Tighter, individual plans will need to be drawn up which are regular monitored and evaluated

Planned Provision for 2016-17 – Allocated funding: £48009

  • Consultancy support from local NLE to establish, monitor and evaluate progress, including reporting to governors. Approximately 4-5 days consultancy over 2016-16: £2500
  • Develop specific plans for each disadvantaged pupil, identifying individual barriers, allocating resources to address these. Pupils expected to make accelerated progress over 2016-17 and for the difference in attainment with non pupil premium pupils to close.
  • The list of actions to address these barriers will be completed by the end of September 2016, but will include:
  • Supporting Y5 and Y6 Guided Reading and Maths lessons with additional qualified teacher (Autumn 1st half term, one hour, 3 mornings per week. Additional hours to be allocated in Autumn 2, Spring and Summer terms): £5000
  • Implementation of Read, Write Inc intervention programme, including full training of three Teaching Assistants and associated resources. Sessions provided daily for focus pupils £7500
  • Support for access to extra curricular activities, residential visits and educational visits: £1000
  • Additional funding to be allocated by end of Autumn 1 in line with plan from work with NLE
