Pupil Premium Information

What is the Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium is government money designed to help disadvantaged children and young people do well at school. The funding is allocated to schools for children from Reception to Year 11 who have registered for free school meals in the last six years, are in care or have parents in the Armed Forces.

What are the key barriers to educational achievement faced by PP students at South?

We believe that there are three key barriers to achievement for our PP students:

  1. The attendance of PP students is often less frequent than that of non PP students. 
  2. The literacy levels of our PP students is often lower than our non PP students
  3. We have a small but diverse cohort of PP students who have different needs and therefore need bespoke support

We have principally directed our funding into strategies to address these barriers, as well as to ensure that our students are well prepared for life after South.
