barriers to future attainment
In school barriers: (issues addressed in school such as low levels of literacy/maths)
A Missed curriculum content during lockdown which has resulted in gaps in learning that need to be filled before new content is taught.
B Misconceptions in children’s learning resulting form inconsistencies in the quality and quantity of children’s educational experiences at home.
C Impact of school closure on disadvantaged and vulnerable families due to: restricted/limited access to online learning, challenges for the parents to provide/support online learning and supportive learning environment.  May result in a larger attainment gap for these children in comparison to their peers.

 

External barriers: (issues which require action outside school such as low attendance)
D Poor attendance of vulnerable/disadvantaged pupils due to parental anxiety around COVID-19
E Lack of supportive environment for home learning
