Although children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a free school meal, the school will only receive pupil premium funding if you have completed the application.

The school received a total allocation of £139, 400 for those pupils in receipt of free school meals and pupils looked after by the local authority. This funding has predominantly been used to target and support children and their families through intervention programmes, precision teaching and parental support where a need is identified. These programmes are of an academic and nurturing nature.
The outcomes for those children has allowed them to make accelerated progress across the curriculum and narrow the gap to their peers. Many groups of children made more than expected progress across the curriculum, this includes those year groups where the proportion of children with SEN was high also. This support is continually reviewed so further areas of support can be identified and positive gains made.
