Some of our families come from lower income groups. We know that this puts pressure on families and so to help we receive a Pupil Premium Grant. All children who receive free school meals , or have been on free school meals in the last six years, are counted as part of the grant. This does not include children who receive the free infant meals which are for all of our reception, year one and year two children nationally.
It is important to us that you claim Free School Meals if you meet the criteria the link below takes you to Lancashire County Councils information and application page.
We receive addition allocation for service children and those who are looked after by the authority, adopted or have special guardianship orders.
The money is a grant to the school and is not for individual pupils. We use it to make sure that all children can do equally well in school. Without it we would struggle to run the Rainbow room with Mrs. Partridge, Support trips to exciting places and employ staff to train teachers or work with our children. It is an important support for the school. Each year we outline a plan for spending the allocation to best support our children. The current plan makes good use of research to look at the best ways to help our children do as well as possible, to 'Be the Best They Can Be'.
This year's plan and last year's are attached below.
