We spent this money in the following ways to support our disadvantaged children:

  • Providing an extra teacher to reduce the class size in Year 6 for ½ a day each week.
  • Providing regular booster sessions for Year 4,  5 and 6  children throughout the year.
  • Running a high quality intervention programmes to enable children to close gaps in their knowledge of reading, writing and maths.
  • Delivering a Forest School curriculum to enable all pupils to develop experiential language.
  • Providing heavily subsidised educational visits for all classes to enrich the curriculum.
  • Maintaining our swimming pool so that we can provide free swimming lessons to all children every year.
  • Providing specialist learning support to children with Dyslexia and their parents.
  • Running parental engagement sessions to promote involvement in children’s learning.
  • Employing a school counsellor to help promote children's emotional well being.
  • Contributing to our Pastoral Support Assistant role to provide support to families and children.
  • Free School Milk available to all disadvantaged children.
  • Providing intervention sessions for Key Stage 1 disadvantaged children.
