We have high aspirations and ambitions for all our pupils, and we are determined to ensure that all our pupils are given every chance to realise their full potential, including our pupils in receipt of pupil premium funding. PP funding represents 7.1% of our overall budget, and we are committed to providing personalised targeted support to ensure that it is spent to maximum effect for identified pupils.
We also make available a £100 bursary per year to each of our PP children that can be used to buy school uniform and pay for trips and clubs too. Children in receipt of free school meals are also entitled to a 75% reduction on the cost of school trips. For more information on free school meals please visit the Northamptonshire County Council website here.
We have Learning Mentors for Pupil Premium whose role it is to check the children are happy and who oversee their pastoral needs are being met. They are Helen Billingham who will be supporting children in Reception. Vicki Reamsbottom who will be supporting children in Year 1. Angela Fox who will be supporting children in Years 2 and 3 and Louise Fadal who will be supporting children in Years 4,5 and 6. These staff members are the first point of contact if you have any queries relating to trips, clubs or buying uniform.
