Disadvantaged Student Funding Report – 2017/2018

The funding has been targeted to ensure that students who are disadvantaged in some way are given equal opportunity to access, enjoy and achieve in their primary education. The grant has been used in a variety of ways, such as providing low income families support with uniform, equipment, trips, visits, activities and clubs, ensuring equal opportunity. Academically, the grant was used to provide additional classes in English and Mathematics to facilitate smaller teaching groups, additional in-class support as well as small group work and 1-2-1 tuition, as well as the implementation of a rigorous Phonics programme – ReadWriteInc.
