Pupil Premium

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.
