'Learning Together Growing Together'

Welcome to the Barrowcliff School website. We are proud to be an Ofsted GOOD school.

Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools for children of statutory school age who meet one or more of the following criteria:


a) children who are currently eligible for free school meals (FSM) in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings;

b) children who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as Ever 6);

c) children who are looked after;

d) children whose parents are serving in the armed forces.


Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However we are held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils. We are required to publish online information about how we have used the Pupil Premium. This will ensure that parents and others are made fully aware of the attainment of pupils covered by the Pupil Premium and the extra support that they receive.



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 in receipt of Pupil Premium are high attainers and we will ensure these children are catered for.


Provision for Vulnerable Groups 

Barrowcliff School have used the Pupil Premium funding to raise attainment, attendance, engagement and aspiration through a variety of programmes and activities, such as:

  • Our school hub, 'The Bay', which is designed to support the pastoral and additional needs of children, staffed by teachers and trained teaching assistants;
  • Additional teaching and learning opportunities provided through curriculum enhancement; opportunities, trained teaching assistants and external agencies;
  • Development and regular review of mentoring programmes and workshops for children and parents;
  • Bespoke interventions to meet individual needs.
