Research shows: After School Clubs help to close the attainment gap

 

Research funded by the Nuffield Foundation, found taking part in activities after the formal school day could play a role in closing the attainment gap between children from economically disadvantaged backgrounds and those with more family resources. Not only were they found to have improved academic achievements, but they also developed better social, emotional and behavioural skills.

Enrichment activities supported by Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium allows schools to offer wide-ranging support, including out-of school clubs, to the most disadvantaged pupils, and is helping

to close the attainment gap. Computing skills are critical to future opportunities for today’s children. Talk to us about computing after school clubs supported by Pupil Premium funding to help prepare all children for the future.
