Invisible poor children let down by schools, says Ofsted Head

Jun 20, 2013 

BBC News:

An Oftsed report published today finds that only 37% of pupils on free school meals achieve good maths and English GCSEs, in comparison to 63% of the rest of pupils. Ofsted head Sir Michael Wilshaw makes recommendations aimed at closing the achievement gap between the rich and the poor, emphasizing the role of the pupil premium, set to rise to £900 in September.

The Bridge Builders Mentoring Scheme is already engaging with schools using their Pupil Premium to help male pupils from low income backgrounds to bridge the gap between them and their peers. Contact us today to find out more.

Our mission

At Bridge Builders Mentoring, we believe that the gap between young men from poor socio-economic backgrounds and their full potential is never too large to overcome. Bridge Builders Mentoring Scheme provides young men the opportunity to gain additional support and guidance from adult mentors from professional backgrounds, who are experienced in life and work. Together, they can define, explore and overcome the problems that are so often associated with a low economic background.

The Bridge Builders Mentoring Scheme is a charity providing low cost services for young men. Any donations are greatly needed and appreciated. We rely on the support of our corporate sponsors and generous individuals to keep our work running and enable us to change the lives of young men throughout the UK.
