Pupil premium

Pupil Premium funding is given to schools to help support students with disadvantage to close the gap in attainment between them and their peers.

The Premium 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 Looked After Children and those in Armed Services families.

Although there are different types of pupil premium allocations, UTC pupil premium students were only drawn from those who have been eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) at any time in the last six years:

FSM6 – £935 per student. 

FSM6: 42 students = £39,270


Disadvantaged students face a range of barriers to educational achievement in relation to their peers at South Bank UTC. The main barriers include:


Every year the UTC will commission a Pupil Premium audit. This audit analyses the impact of all pupil premium expenditure and makes recommendations for future development.  At the start of each academic year, the UTC 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.



Attainment 8 – all students 44.7 points; disadvantaged 43.5 points. This means there was an in-school gap of 1.2 points, which is narrow but does indicate performance was lower for disadvantaged students. However, the 43.5 for UTC disadvantaged students was well above the national average (2017) of 36.9 points, representing a positive gap of 6.6 points.
