  • EAL teachers  1.2 FTE : 3 terms
  • 2 HLTAs  for targeted interventions

Projects were initiated in the EYFS to improve confidence in communication, and training was provided for all staff to improve children’s communication skills, as this is an area which has a huge impact on achievement.

Money is also used to enable access to activities, e.g. clubs and trips. Lunchtime clubs for circus skills are one example of the ways that the money has been used creatively to increase confidence and self-esteem.

In 2015 the school uniform was changed, as this constituted a major expense for some families, the new school uniform was purchased in full for eligible pupils
