Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
Pupil Premium Reporting to Parents
At Barrowcliff School:
- We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all pupils.
- We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed.
- Pupil Premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals.
- We recognise that some children on receipt of FSM will be on the AGT register and we will ensure these children will be catered for.
- It must be recognised that at Barrowcliff School the amount of pupils on the FSM register was 61.6% at January 2015 whilst the national figure is 26.4%.
- There are currently nine looked-after children and no service children on roll.
- An on-going database lists those children in receipt of PPF in order to establish a time frame for identifying needs and monitoring the impact.
Provision for Vulnerable Groups
Barrowcliff School have used the PPF funding to raise attainment, attendance, engagement and aspiration through a variety of programmes and activities, such as:
- Designated HLTA to support the pastoral needs of children;
- To review intervention programmes to ensure maximum impact;
- Enhancement of curriculum opportunities and entitlements to ensure children become independent and successful learners;
- Additional teaching and learning opportunities provided through curriculum enhancement; opportunities, learning mentors, trained TAs and external agencies;
- Development of mentoring programmes and workshops for children and parents, and bespoke interventions to enhance progress.
