SHS partners with schools to break down barriers to learning for children from disadvantaged backgrounds, closing the gap in achievement with their peers.
The Government has placed a strong emphasis on closing the attainment gap and provided financial backing, through the Pupil Premium, to achieve progress. The Pupil Premium provides extra funding to schools for those students from disadvantaged backgrounds.
SHS is an excellent investment for Pupil Premium funding, ensuring that children from disadvantaged backgrounds are given a better chance in life.
We rely on income from voluntary donations to help subsidise services and develop innovative new interventions to improve the lives of children and families.
