Food Bank Vouchers

For any family in crisis who are struggling to buy food, we have food bank vouchers available from school for use at the Gatehouse Centre. A person is considered to be in food crisis if they have no food or money to purchase food. 

Please do pop in for a confidential chat with Mrs Lundy if you feel you would benefit from a food bank voucher.

All children who are currently in receipt of free school meals, or who have been at any point in the previous 6 years ('Ever 6') attract additional funding to the school known as 'Pupil Premium' funding. This funding stream is spent on ensuring those children achieve well whilst at school and have access to the same variety of activities as all other children. Currently the Government gives an additional  £1,320 to our school for each child in receipt of free school meals or who are 'Ever 6'.

 

For information on how we spent last year's allocation of 'Pupil Premium' funding and how we plan to spend this year's, please follow the link below.
