Part A: Pupil premium strategy plan

Statement of intent

We will use pupil premium funding to help us achieve and sustain positive outcomes for our most disadvantaged pupils and their families. Considering their SEND, socio-economic disadvantage is not always the primary challenge our pupils face, however in our experience socio-economic factors can often impact on our pupils when compared to their peer, particularly in terms of their family situation, emotional regulation, safeguarding, welfare and wellbeing.

We will provide support for pupils and their families through our Home School Link Workers support families to develop a positive, nurturing and supportive home environment from which our pupils will benefit.

Although our strategy is focused on the needs of our most disadvantaged pupils, it will benefit all pupils in our school where funding is spent on whole-school approaches. Implicit in the intended outcomes detailed below, is the intention that outcomes for non-disadvantaged pupils will improve alongside those of their disadvantaged peers.

Challenges

This details the key challenges to achievement that we have identified among our disadvantaged pupils.

Challenge number

Detail of challenge

1

People living in families with disabled children are more than twice as likely to be living in poverty than those in families where no-one was Disabled (Dept of Work and Pensions report Jan 2024). In addition, 53% of families claim that having a disabled child causes some / major relationship difficulties or breakups (source: About Families), which is considerably higher that the population in general, suggesting that there could be a link between being an additional needs parent, levels of poverty and family breakup.

2

Our assessments, observations and discussions with pupils and their families show that disadvantaged pupils often have more complex family situations which impacts on their emotional and mental health and often proves a significant barrier to engagement, learning and positive wellbeing.

Intended outcomes

This explains the outcomes we are aiming for by the end of our current strategy plan, and how we will measure whether they have been achieved.

Intended outcome

Success criteria
