Statement of Intent

At New Barn School we target the use of Pupil Premium Grant funding to ensure that our disadvantaged pupils receive the highest quality of education to enable them to become active, socially responsible citizens of the future. We recognise that disadvantaged children can face a wide range of barriers which may impact on their learning.

Our Objectives are to:

  • Remove barriers to learning created by poverty, family circumstance and background
  • Narrow the attainment gaps between disadvantaged pupils and their non-disadvantaged counterparts both within school and nationally
  • Ensure all pupils are able to read fluently and with good understanding to enable them to access the breadth of the curriculum
  • Develop confidence in their ability to communicate effectively in a wide range of contexts
  • Enable pupils to look after their social and emotional wellbeing and to develop resilience
  • Access a wide range of opportunities to develop their knowledge and understanding of the world

Our Context:

  • An all through special school, for autistic children.
  • 22.08% of pupils are eligible for Pupil Premium Funding 

Achieving Our Objectives: 

In order to achieve our objectives and overcome identified barriers to learning we will:

  • Provide all teachers with high quality CPD to ensure that pupils access effective quality teaching
  • Provide targeted intervention and support to quickly address identified gaps in learning including the use of small group work, 1:1 tuition
  • Target funding to ensure that all pupils have access to trips, residentials, first hand learning experiences
  • Provide opportunities for all pupils to participate in enrichment activities including sport and music
  • Provide appropriate nurture support to enable pupils to access learning within and beyond the classroom.

This is not an exhaustive list and strategies will change and develop based on the needs of individuals.

Key Principals: 

We will ensure that effective teaching, learning, and assessment meets the needs of all pupils through the rigorous analysis of data. Class teachers will identify specific intervention and support for individual pupils which will be least termly. Alongside academic support, we will ensure that those pupils who have social, emotional, and mental health needs will access high quality provision from appropriately trained adults and will be referred to our therapy team.
