What is TKAT ACE?
The TKAT ACE (A Champion for Every Child) Programme is a pastoral programme that supports the progress of vulnerable pupils, allowing them to flourish.
It has been developed to ensure that each child who is entitled to Pupil Premium funding has a member of staff (an ACE Tutor) that will be their champion. Someone who will work with them and their family throughout their secondary education to support them in achieving their full potential while at King Harold Academy.
It is founded in our strong belief that no child should be educationally disadvantaged because of their socioeconomic status. The TKAT ACE Programme supports our Pupil Premium children and families. Pupil Premium is the funding given to schools by the Government to support the progress of some of our children. Those eligible for Pupil Premium funding are:
- Children entitled to Free School Meals or those who have been entitled in the last six years
- Children of Armed Service Personnel
- Looked After Children and children who have been adopted since 2008
- Those with a Special Guardianship Order or residence order
The money is used to fund initiatives that will help those children reach their full potential, both academically and socially. In our school, and other schools within TKAT, some of this funding is being used to support the ACE Project. ACE provides children in receipt of Pupil Premium with an ACE Tutor who will meet with them individually and have regular contact with their family.
