Pupil Premium funding is given to schools to help support students with disadvantage so as to close the gap in attainment between them and their peers. It is allocated to schools for every student who has been in receipt of free school meals at any time in the previous six years as well as to Looked After Children and those in Armed Services families.
South Bank Engineering UTC will allocate additional Pupil Premium funding so as to have maximum impact in a manner targeted at individual students. We will publicise the strategies and interventions funded by Pupil Premium on our website, but we are likely to select a wide range, including:
- Reduced class sizes in key areas of the curriculum;
- Enhanced enrichment activities;
- Additional study support sessions;
- Supplementary tuition in English and mathematics;
- Breakfast clubs; and
- Funded educational trips, visits and resources.
At the start of each academic year, we will publish an analysis of how Pupil Premium funding was spent, and most importantly, the impact it has had in raising standards and narrowing the gap in performance to students nationally who are not in receipt of Pupil Premium funding.
