Service Children Premium

Service Child Premium.

We are proud to have so many children in our school who have a parent(s) serving in the Armed Forces. We work in close partnership with HMS Collingwood to provide, support and build on pupil need and have been privileged to have so many serving personnel visit our school community to work in partnership with us.
We work with parents to identify the needs of children in order to ensure that we can support pupils as effectively as possible. Our team has the ability to offer both academic tuition and emotional support through the investment of time, expertise and provision.
