Barriers to Educational Achievement in the London Borough of Barking & Dagenham

Barking and Dagenham is the 21st most deprived authority in England (out of 317 authorities) and the 2nd highest in London. Many families in the borough are either on low incomes, where full-time salaries are lower than any other authority in London, or they are dependent on benefits. 15.9% of working age residents in the borough claim at least one type of benefit. Housing benefit claimant levels are high and have increased. Barking and Dagenham is the 4th highest for family homelessness. The rate of unemployment is high at 6.1%. Child Poverty Rate is at 50% with 1 in 3 children living an income deprived household. Those eligible for free school meals rose from 15.4 in 2019 to 17.3 in 2020 nationally, compared to Barking and Dagenham at 21% -2019 (Data taken from Index of Multiple Deprivation - IMD 2019)


The Use of the Pupil Premium Grant at Rose Lane Primary School

We have high aspirations and ambitions for our children and we are determined to ensure that all our children are given every chance to realise their full potential.


Background to Pupil Premium Funding

The pupil premium is a government initiative that targets extra money at pupils from deprived backgrounds. Research shows that pupils from deprived backgrounds underachieve compared to their non-deprived peers. The premium is provided to enable these pupils to be supported to reach their potential. The Government has used pupils entitled to free school meals (FSM), looked after children and service children as indicators of deprivation, and have provided a fixed amount of money for schools per pupil based on the number of pupils registered for FSM over a rolling six-year period. This fixed amount of money is expected to increase every year for the course of this current Parliament. At Rose Lane Primary we will be using the indicator of those eligible for FSM as well as identified vulnerable groups as our target children to ‘close the gap’ regarding attainment.


Our Approach to Pupil Premium

The money has been ring-fenced and will used to benefit all pupil premium pupils.

We do this by:


  • Providing short term intervention programmes for underachieving pupils and those with SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities).
  • Providing additional adult support for pupils
  • Providing new resources that will support learning and teaching in and out of the classroom.
  • To provide part time Therapeutic Counselling support for pupils.
  • Making sure that all children have full access to a daily diet of at least good teaching.
  • Ensuring adults are deployed effectively to support those children most ‘in need’.
  • All staff are aware of areas for development in the school in terms of subjects, year groups and they know which children are focus children.
  • Money is used to benefit all pupil premium children and supports higher as well as lower ability children by extending provision on offer.


We have rigorous assessment and monitoring systems to support improvement in the quality of teaching and interventions in order to maximise impact. Our systems in place enable us to be more responsive and frequent support such as team teaching, planning, one to one training and CPD. Interventions are regularly monitored and analysed to ensure maximum impact.
