To ask the Minister for Education for each year in the past three years (a) how many students have been enrolled in the Enhanced School Resourcing programme set up by the Uplifting Pupils in Life and Inspiring Families Taskforce; and (b) what are the rates of improvement in school attendance by the enrolled students per year.


  1. UPLIFT Enhanced School Resourcing provides schools with additional teacher posts to put in place structures, processes and customised programmes to support disadvantaged and at-risk students. The pilot phase of UPLIFT Enhanced School Resourcing in 23 schools supported around 2,600 students each year in the past three years.
  2. Attendance has improved. The percentage of students absent for more than 10% of school days per year decreased from 3.2% in 2019 to 2.8% in 2021 in the pilot schools. Improved student learning outcomes will take more time to be achieved.
