Breaking Down Barriers to Learning

Old Bank Junior, Infant and Nursery School is a smaller than average community school. Numbers on role have increased and continue to do so. More than 60% of the children are entitled to Free School Meals. The majority live within the worst 10%-20% area of social deprivation. Percentage of children with SEN far exceeds national averages. There is a high percentage of mobility; 50% of the present YR 6 cohort, for example, joined the school less than two years ago. The ethnic mix of the school is predominantly white British with a significant number of Hungarian Gypsy Roma children (40 in 2010, 24 in 2014). The majority of children fall within one or more of the identified vulnerable groups within school; indeed the few who don’t become a vulnerable group of their own.
