Want to learn more about the Pupil Premium Grant?
In 2018/2019 we received more money due to an increase in the numbers of pupils eligible; if you feel your child may be eligible then please do get in touch with the school office who will be happy to assist. Alternatively, visit Lancashire County Council’s webpage where you can find out more and apply on line.
We used our Grant to provide our Home-School Liaison Officer, maintain full time support staff in each class and put aside an amount to support curriculum materials, payment for trips, payments for other aspects of school life. We monitor the progress of children eligible for this funding and work to support them in having as full a part in school life as possible.
The impact last year of the spending of the Pupil Premium Grant was positive.
