Social barriers to learning in Harlow

Despite having revered business and industrial operations in the town which places it in the top 40% for both, Harlow finds itself in the bottom 20% nationally for skilled or professional workers with 51.2% of its workforce being classed as ‘unskilled’. This leads to a very low prosperity score with average household earnings being in the bottom 20% nationally, being the 2nd most deprived town in Essex but with house prices being at either or above national average, largely due to the proximity of the town to London. The high level of deprivation, lack of skills and low wages also give Harlow the largest crime point score in the county and place it in the top ten per cent in the country for areas with high levels of crime. On the 7th of February 2017 a home office report revealed that the town had the highest number of murders and attempted murders in England and Wales; one of which, the death of a Polish man in 2016, led a period of intense media scrutiny because of rising racial tensions in the town. Health care and basic services have also been under scrutiny as on the 18th of October 2017 Harlow was named bottom in the country, from 137 NHS trusts for health care targets, with key areas such as accident and emergency hugely under performing.

The school is based in the ward of Great Parndon which is traditionally one of the towns most deprived and has the highest percentage of EAL students in the Town.

With the exception of Year 3 2016-2017 PPG outperformed non PPG in all year groups at ARE 2016-2017. The focus was therefore on ensuring access to enrichments activities e.g. clubs and educational visits. In year 3 the small number of PPG children also have additional needs (1 CP, 1 SEMH) which impact on ARE. Progress remains good for all these children.

EYFS: Both PPG children in Reception last year reached GLD
