|Number Of Pupils||360||Number of pupils eligible for Catch Up||141|
Number of pupils in year 7 who have attained the National Standards for KS2 English, Maths and both:
In-school barriers to be addressed:
We need to recognise that not all students sat the KS2 SATs examinations and there will also be cases
of students in Year 7, who have not made the National Standard and we do not directly receive
funding for these students from this fund.
Those pupils who have not made National Standard in English/Maths or both will be required to pass
a number of GCSEs and we need to ensure the ‘gaps’ from KS2 are filled through the explicit teaching
of Literacy to the Year 7 B Block group.
Literacy skills entering Year 7 are lower for pupils eligible for PP than other pupils, preventing them from
making good progress.
External barriers that require action outside school (such as poor attendance)
Attendance for students who do not make expected progress is generally lower than expected.
The Lead SENCO and Deputy SENCO in conjunction with the attendance office monitors the
attendance of all pupils in the B Block classes and those with identified SEN needs on a weekly
basis so we can address any issues which may occur.
