Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium

At Shuttleworth College we are committed to providing equal opportunities for all students regardless of background or circumstance.

Pupil Premium funding allows us to ensure all disadvantaged students can access and receive support, intervention and resources to enable them to have the same opportunities, outcomes and progress as their peers.

Pupil Premium funding is available for all children who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the past 6 years and children who have been looked after for 6 months or longer.

Guided by our school values and ethos, Shuttleworth College’s main aim is to close the gap between disadvantaged students and their peers in all areas with particular focus on:

  • Attendance
  • Behaviour
  • Punctuality
  • Progress in English and Maths
  • Engagement in extra-curricular activities

We hope to achieve this through ensuring the planning and delivery of all lessons meet the needs and accelerate the progress of all pupils. Alongside this, timely and appropriate interventions are put in place, within and beyond the classroom, to ensure the achievement gap is narrowed rapidly and behaviour and wider issues are addressed.

Pupil Premium Spend

Decisions surrounding how Pupil Premium funding is allocated within the college are based primarily on our internal data allowing us to direct the funding towards initiatives that will have the greatest impact. The impacts of the different initiatives are monitored closely at key points throughout the year to measure effectiveness and allow for change and improvement where necessary.
