Pupil Premium funding is allocated to schools on the basis of:
Schools have the freedom to spend the Pupil Premium, which is additional to the underlying academy budget, in a way they think will best support the raising of attainment for these students.
UTCN’s funding is made up of £955 per pupil premium student and £310 per services child, as well as £2345 per adopted child and a potential additional fund per looked after child on application to the virtual school.
Last year we had funding of £43,975 for Pupil Premium students. The number of students eligible for the Pupil Premium in 2018-19 was 45.
The Pupil Premium funding for 2020-21 academic year is projected to be £55,390 based on 58 students who are eligible (25% of the Key Stage 4 cohort).

We want to ensure that fine data is used effectively to target key groups in Year 11 and 10. This will support the students in lessons by ensuring they are equipped to make at least good progress throughout the year. In particular our focus is on students who, both on entering UTCN and throughout their time at school, are not making the required level of progress based on their year 6 SATs results. This will be calculated and monitored using literacy and numeracy tests that are done regularly throughout year 10 and year 11. They will have a series of opportunities such as access to tutoring and intervention sessions, which are designed specifically for each individual in order to promote their progress.
We also expect the attendance of Pupil Premium students to close the gap (by at least 2%) with their peers. This will be done through regular attendance monitoring and early intervention when required. We will also ensure the Pupil Premium students continue to access exciting and challenging extra-curricular enrichment to raise confidence, including being provided the opportunity to consider life after year 11 in order to raise aspirations.
Every year UTCN commissions a Pupil Premium audit. This audit analyses the impact of all pupil premium expenditure and makes recommendations for future development.
The Pupil Premium strategy was reviewed in October 2020 and will next be reviewed October 2021
