The Government is giving money to schools to help children from lower income families do their very best. This funding is called a ‘Pupil Premium Grant.'
For every child registered, Buckland St Mary Primary gets an extra £1200 this year - this has increased from £600 last year. Being such a small school, it really would make a huge amount of difference to those children.
Please register before the end of the Autumn Term to make sure your child and others in the school do not miss out from potential valuable intervention or helpful resources. Please go to www.somerset.gov.uk and complete the online application form to see if you are entitled to PPG. You do not have to accept Free School Meals but the school will still gain the funding to help your child develop academically and socially.
