For the current financial year (2016-2017) we will receive no 'Pupil Premium' income.
At Carsington & Hopton Primary, we aim to identify children very early into their time at school who need extra support so that they can make the very best progress during their time here. To ensure this support continues we are currently using our funding to help us to offer high-quality intervention programmes and for every child to receive a personalised curriculum with more 'teacher time' to ensure that it is of the very highest quality.
Where appropriate, we also use the funding to ensure that no child ever misses out on an experience because of financial constraints.
If you think your child may be entitled to Free School Meals you can click here to download a form that will help school to check that for you. This is extremely important to the school as we receive an extra £1300 to support children who are entitled to Free School Meals even if they don’t ever actually have the meal. This also applies to infants even though they now all get a free meal as part of the new government scheme. We can provide paper copies of this (all in the strictest confidence) for anyone who thinks they may qualify and once you’ve filled it in, we can do the rest.
