Limited knowledge of the world (general knowledge) and associated vocabulary
Gaps in early mathematical knowledge
Speech and language difficulties – approximately 35% of children identified with difficulties are entitled to pupil premium funding
Social, emotional and mental health difficulties – approximately 45% of children with SEMH difficulties are entitled to pupil premium funding
Digital divide (albeit lessened during COVID with provision from DfE for disadvantaged families)
Progress scores for 2022 (KS2) were all above 0 but reading (0.5 was lower than writing (2.3) and maths (2.4)
0% of disadvantaged met the higher standard in 2022 (R, W, M)
