The Danesgate Community – barriers to learning

Pupils at Danesgate have significant social, emotional and mental health needs.  Further a high proportion have additional barriers to learning and classed as disadvantaged (17-18 DfE figures indicates  55% of secondary and  63% of primary cohorts).  The key barriers for this cohort are:

  1. Below age related performance when they join the school
  2. Gaps in literacy and numeracy due to breakdown in attendance and engagement in mainstream school
  3. Family support network often struggling to encourage good attendance and engagement and may not have had a good experience of education themselves.  There may also be concerns around eating a healthy diet and availability of uniform and personal care items.
  4. Low self esteem with regard to learning and the opportunities they could take advantage of
  5. Poor self regulation and associated social skills

The Danesgate Community – how do we use PP funding to reduce barriers to learning?

Our whole school investment and approach can be seen in the way we personalise learning and in the way we support families to make sure that no barrier that we can remove is left in place.

What is the impact of our investment?

In school attainment data shows diminishing gap and significant improvement in attainment figures over past 2 years.  Please see  2017 Outcomes in the ‘Achievements’ section of the website.
