Review of PP Strategy July 2019

Summary of the main barriers to educational achievement faced by eligible pupils at the school:


The school serves a community with a deprivation indicator of 0.3, placing us in the top 20% nationally.

Our families and pupils face significant social and economic challenges; 39% of pupils are eligible for pupil premium funding.

Starting Points

On entry to the Foundation stage, baseline attainment information shows that our pupils are significantly below the age related expectation.  In 2018, baseline data showed that 94% of Nursery pupils entered significantly below the age related expectation.  Assessments identified pupils’ personal, social and emotional development, communication, language and physical development were poorly developed.


95% of pupils are from ethnic minority families with 84% speaking English as an additional language.


16% of pupils have Special Educational Needs with the greatest number of pupils having a ‘Moderate Learning Difficulty’ followed by Speech, Language and Communication needs.

Ability to support Learning

Ability to support learning at home and opportunities to develop outside of school hobbies/learning in the wider community is compromised in some families.
