Barriers to Educational Achievement for Disadvantaged Students at Scalby School
The main barriers to student’s achievement have been identified as;
- Progress– with focus on gaps in knowledge, literacy and language poverty,
- Quality First Teaching,
- Enrichment and Parental Engagement,
Our Disadvantaged Students strategy below sets out targets for each of these barriers which is subsequently linked to the pupil premium spending. Each activity identified in the plan aims at addressing the targeted barriers. This ensures that all spending is then subsequently linked to one of the 5 key targets identified to overcome the barriers to learning. Reasons for the choice of each activity is detailed next to each area of staff and resource spending.
