Identified barriers to educational achievement
Marlborough St Mary’s CE Primary School has identified the following as potential barriers to achievement experienced by some of the pupils currently in receipt of Pupil Premium Funding:
- Access to language / understanding and application of phonics skills and reading skills.
- Access to extra-curricular activities – educational experiences such as day trips, residential trips and music lessons.
- Parental engagement with school – especially regarding attendance at My Child Parent Meetings; curriculum workshops; support to complete homework.
- The number of pupils who are in receipt of Pupil Premium funding who are also on the SEND register for cognition and learning.
- Pupils with specific social and emotional needs which affect their learning.
- Irregular attendance.
Higher rates of progress across all phases for non-SEN Pupil Premium pupils.
- Higher rates of progress and greater attainment across all phases for all Pupil Premium pupils.
- Higher rates of engagement with extra-curricular activities – including residential trips.
- Pupils eligible for Pupil Premium, who do not have an additional educational need, make good to outstanding progress in all curriculum areas. This will be measured through the school tracking system and monitored through pupil progress meetings.
- Progress and attainment more in line with non-pupil premium children
- Extra-curricular activities registers show a representative proportion of Pupil Premium children
