Children from Vulnerable Groups This presentation will focus specifically on outcomes for: - Children Looked After (and Children in Need) - Traveller Children - Children with English as an Additional Language - Children eligible for Free School Meals - Service Children But first, a little background information….
Facts and Figures – The Somerset Context 108,782 children and young people living in Somerset (under 18) 67,166 Pupils on the School Roll (Jan 2012) 7,979 claiming Free School Meals (Jan 2012) 4,481pupils classified as belonging to an ethnic group other than White British (Jan 2012) 2,364 pupils do not have English as their First Language. Apart from English, Polish (749 pupils) & Portuguese (231 pupils) are the most commonly recorded first language of school pupils (Jan 2012) 864 pupils have a SEN Statement. A further 11,967 have School Action or School Action Plus (Jan 2012) 3,421 Children In Need (March 2012) 495 Looked After Children (March 2012) 282 Children subject of a Child Protection Plan (March 2012) 13,770 children (under 16) living in poverty (2010) 1,133 Service Children on School Roll (Jan 2012) 311 Looked After Children of Statutory School Age (March 2012) 13,837 pupils in 3 most deprived deciles (based on Experian data) (Jan 2012) 135 Children subject of a Child Protection Plan of Statutory School Age (March 2012) 2,062 Children In Need of Statutory School Age (March 2012)
Outcomes for Children Looked After Children Looked After are currently funded through the National Pupil Premium and Somerset Funding for Children from Vulnerable Groups What the evidence tells us: Lower than average attainment at the end of Key Stages 1, 2 and 4 (particularly at KS4). Good progress in Key Stage 2 outcomes. Disproportionally represented in lowest attaining schools. Lower than average identification on Gifted and Talented registers. Higher than average exclusions. Higher than average rates of offending. Placement stability / length of time in care closely correlated with academic attainment and exclusion rates. Increasing proportions identified with Special Educational Needs.
Outcomes for Children Looked After: KS2 50% 48% 40% CLA National Outturn
Outcomes for Children in Need (KS2, 2011) 48%49% 40% CiN National Outturn
Outcomes for Gypsy Roma & Traveller Children The Dedicated Schools Grant funding is designed to help schools improve the performance of ethnic minority pupils, including those of a Gypsy Roma & Irish Traveller background. What the evidence tells us: The lowest achieving identified ethnic minority group at every Key Stage of education (taking into account high drop-out rates). High proportion claiming Free School Meals (53% in January 2012 School Census) Lowest school attendance profile of any minority ethnic group; High levels of permanent and fixed term exclusions – particularly for boys. Less likely to be identified as gifted or talented. National and local evidence suggest that by the end of Key Stage 4, less than half of Traveller young people remain in school. Low primary to secondary transfer rates. Vulnerable to bullying and prejudice. Good progress in FSP scores, possibly due to strong support over several years.
Outcomes for Gypsy Roma & Traveller Children 25% Gypsy/Roma National Outturn
What the evidence tells us: Numbers of C&YP from minority ethnic groups have nearly tripled over the last 9 years, rising at rate of about 300 more pupils per year EAL referrals to the LA were at their highest ever level last year (approx. 480) Research suggests that EAL learners take 5-7 years to attain English language fluency comparable to their peers, so additional needs remain for a long period. Lower than average attainment. Less likely to go to their first choice school on first admission. Less likely to be identified by schools as ‘Gifted and Talented’. Vulnerable to bullying and prejudice. A survey of schools’ uses of the grant allocated suggested that it is used to provide a wide range of important support for EAL learners; some schools thought that funding should be available beyond the first 2 years, depending on individual needs. Outcomes for EAL Children Somerset vulnerable group funding for children with EAL is allocated for 2 yrs through the Dedicated Schools Grant: 100% in the first year, 50% for second.
Outcomes for EAL Children: Key Stage 2 79% 72% 47% EAL National Outturn
Outcomes for Pupils claiming Free School Meals What the evidence tells us: Lower than average attainment at the end of EYFSP, KS1, 2 and 4. Pupils eligible for FSM in Somerset do not perform as well as the same group of pupils nationally. Eligibility for Free School Meals is used as an indicator for deprivation. Children from less deprived areas of the county perform better than those from more deprived areas at the end of each Key Stage. The highest early achievers from deprived backgrounds are overtaken by lower achieving children from advantaged backgrounds by the age of 7. A pupil from a non-deprived background is more than twice as likely to go on to study at university than their deprived peers. Funded via Pupil Premium: Introduced in April 2011 as a way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for FSM and their wealthier peers by ensuring funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.
The Impact of deprivation: Early Years FSM National Outturn 40% 59% 44% 62%
The Impact of deprivation: Key Stage 2 FSM National Outturn 67% 58% 85% 83% 78%
Outcomes for Service Children What the evidence tells us: Children from service families perform above the County average of all pupils. More likely than their peers to attend a number of different schools – more mobile but still attain higher and achieve further. Lower attendance rates than their peers. Experience greater social and emotional pressures than their peers. Less likely to be eligible for Free School Meals. Generally live in less deprived areas. Less likely to have an identified Special Educational Need. Service Premium: A premium has also been introduced for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces, designed to address the emotional and social wellbeing of these pupils.
Summary of Key Messages Children Looked After attain less well than their peers. Key Stage 2 results are improving, but remain low at Key Stage 4. Children in Need attain less well than their peers but broadly in line with national figures. For Gypsy/Roma pupils: Key Stage 2 static; small improvement at Key Stage 4 – but this small cohort needs continued attention and focus. EAL learners: significant increase in numbers of children. Results improving at Key Stage 4 but still some way to go. Improvements in attainment for children eligible for Free School Meals, especially at Key Stage 2. Children from service families continue to outperform their peers. Generally vulnerable groups in Somerset do not achieve as well as their national counterparts, although there have been some improvements.
