School Prioritisation Process
“Promoting Bradford District”
Attendance Results Autumn Term 2012 – Autumn Term 2013 • Primary attendance rose from 94. 9% to 95. 7% (+0. 8%) Secondary attendance rose from 93. 7% to 94. 2% (+0. 5%) • The number of pupils with less than 85% attendance (persistent absence) in Bradford schools reduced by 776 in primary schools and by 1051 in secondary schools • Attendance and persistent absence in Bradford primary and secondary schools remains below national and regional averages. • Bradford’s levels of unauthorised absence remain higher than national averages. This is due to Bradford schools taking a firm line on challenging the reasons for absence provided by parents.
Df. E Updated Guidance (April 2014) ‘Careers guidance and inspiration in Schools’: statutory guidance for governing bodies, school leaders and school staff • Revised guidance reflects findings outlined in Ofsted review of first year of ‘duty’ on schools to secure independent careers guidance for all year 8 -13 pupils. • ‘Going in the right direction? ’ (Sept 13) found that only 1 in 5 (60 schools visited) had ensured that all students received ‘sufficient information to consider a wide breadth of career possibilities. ’ • Careers guidance given ‘a higher priority’ by inspectors since Sept 2013. How well a school delivers advice and guidance to all pupils is now taken into account when judging ‘leadership and management’.
• Revised guidance requires governing bodies to ensure that all pupils are provided with independent careers guidance from Year 8 to Year 13. • Governors must ensure careers guidance: – Is presented in an impartial manner – Includes information on the range of education or training options, including apprenticeships and other vocational pathways – Is guidance that the person giving it considers will promote the best interests of the pupils to whom it is given • Governing body should provide ‘clear advice to the head teacher’ on which to base a strategy for advice and guidance, which is appropriately resourced and meets the school’s legal requirements. ’ • This strategy should be ‘embedded within a clear framework linked to outcomes for pupils rather than an ad-hoc set of activities. ’
• Revised guidance also emphasises the importance of: – Links with employers, the importance of work experience, employer mentoring, links to the local labour market, opportunities to develop entrepreneurial skills – The importance of Maths and English and the STEM subjects and the need to encourage more girls to continue their studies in STEM subjects as they get older The need for impartial CIAG that covers the full range of post-16 options. Schools are advised that they should give ‘… other providers who wish to do so the opportunity to inform pupils directly about what they offer. ’
• Other related policy areas to consider (also covered in revised guidance): – Full implementation of Raising the Participation Age (RPA) – (young people have a ‘duty’ to participate until 18 th birthday) – The provision of targeted support for vulnerable and disadvantaged young people (‘vulnerable to non-participation’) – Requirements around information sharing with the LA (with emphasis on the importance the Df. E’s published ‘Destination Measures’) – The SEN Reforms and new legislation in Children and Families Act (e. g. phasing out of Statements of SEN, introduction of Education, Health and Care Plans, emphasis on ‘Preparing for Adulthood’ outcomes, etc. )

10 Key Questions 1. Has the DT had appropriate training to carry out the role? 2. What arrangements are in place to allow DT time and resources to carry out the role? 3. How does SLT have oversight of this role and the progress of/issues for LAC? 4. How does the DT manage the PEP meetings? 5. How are staff informed about LAC?
Cont…. 6. What training have staff had about LAC? 7. How does the school support LAC who are new to the school? 8. How are additional resources (PPP) used to raise achievement? 9. Are there any school related issues that prevent LAC achieving? 10. What arrangements are in place that have contributed to successful provision and for the LAC to make good or better progress?

The ____ ? Their economy is in a mess. They can’t make money, they have no jobs at home, so they come over here to mess up our economy and to take our jobs. And why is there so much unemployment in their own country? Because they’re a lazy lot, who don’t want to work.
Education Service for New Communities and Travellers Works with families from many of the groups who have recently moved to the Bradford District i. e. • Asylum Seekers • Refugees • Central and Eastern European Migrant Workers

Rights to Education The Education Act 1944, as amended by the Education Act 1996, places Local Education Authorities under a duty to make education available for all school aged children in their area, appropriate to their age, abilities and aptitudes. This duty extends to all children residing in their area, whether permanently or temporarily.
Equality Act 2010 5 th April 2011 the Public Sector Equality Duty (The Equality Duty) came into force. The three aims of the General duty are to: • Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation and other conduct prohibited by the Act • Advance equality of opportunity between groups who share a protected characteristic and those who do not. • Foster good relationships between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not.
School inspection handbook: Reference no: 120101: April 2014 Depending on the type of school, it may be relevant to pay particular attention to the achievement of: • • • disabled pupils, and those who have special educational needs those with protected characteristics, including Gypsy, Roma and Traveller children,  as defined by the Equality Act 2010 boys girls the highest and lowest attainers pupils for whom the pupil premium provides support, including: looked after children pupils known to be eligible for free school meals – a school is unlikely to be judged outstanding if these pupils are not making at least good progress those attending alternative provision.  Pupils with protected characteristics and other groups of pupils may include: pupils for whom English is an additional language; minority ethnic pupils; Gypsy Roma and Traveller children; lesbian, gay and bisexual pupils; transgender pupils; young carers; and other vulnerable groups.
Moral Compass? We all have a responsibility to provide the best possible education for all children.
The Bradford District has had a significant minority ethnic population since the 1960 s and due to its industrial heritage has had migration for many years previously. One of the most recent groups of people to come to Bradford are from Central and Eastern Europe.
The majority of the Migrant Worker families coming to the Bradford District originally came from Slovakia, Poland the Czech Republic.
Changing Demographics? Migrants from Pakistan were the largest group coming into the Bradford in 2011. Migration from Central and Eastern European Countries e. g. Poland, Slovakia and the Czech Republic in total exceeded the number from Pakistan.
Increasing Numbers of Children and Young People?
Where do EU Migrant Worker Families Live?
New challenges for schools, colleges and settings: • • • Communication/interpretation Increased number of New to English pupils Some children/young people living in poverty Increased number of In Year admissions Increasing need for awareness of the cultural and socio economic background of the families.
Services Provided • Support schools to develop the capacity to meet the needs of Gypsy Roma Travellers (BRTAP) • Assist families to access schools/settings • Facilitate full attendance • Facilitate home school liaison • Provide advice to schools/settings and families. • Liaise with the range of statutory and voluntary agencies with regard to the education and welfare of the Services client groups. • Encourage the use of culturally relevant resources
As with other ethnic minority children and young people those from Central and Eastern Europe enhance the school community bringing with them rich diverse cultural heritages and helping school communities to have broadening horizons of the world.

The Impact of Parental Involvement by Professor Charles Desforges with Alberto Abouchaar Research Report RR 433 June 2003 “to close the social class achievement gap …. a very clear and consistent finding ……. is that parental involvement has a large and positive effect on the outcomes of schooling. This effect is bigger than that of schooling itself. Research consistently shows that what parents do with their children at home is far more important to their achievement than their social class or level of education. It would seem that if the parenting involvement practices of most working class parents could be raised to the levels of the best working class parents in these terms, very significant advances in school achievement might reasonably be expected. This inference from research cannot be said too often. “ The Impact of Parental Involvement, Parental Support & Family Education on Pupil Achievements and Adjustment: A Literature Review.

Article from TES May 2014 reported on - A key research paper, a 1996 meta-analysis of 39 US studies found that: • During the summer holidays, at best, students showed no academic growth and at worst lost one to three months of learning. • Learning loss was greater in maths than in reading and disadvantaged students were disproportionately affected, losing about twice the ground of other pupils in reading. • A more recent US study, published in 2007, followed people between the ages of 6 and 22. The research team from John Hopkins University in Baltimore found that twothirds of the reading gap between disadvantaged 13 year olds and their peers could be explained by summer learner loss.
