Military Kids Club
We have a small but significant group of pupils with families serving in the armed forces. Since 2019, Mrs Jones and Mrs Vincent have been co-ordinating pastoral support for pupils and their families through the Military Kids Club (both of whom have husbands currently serving in the armed forces). In July 2021, we were awarded a £500 grant from the Festival of Friends project for our proposal to build a memorial garden. This is testament to all of the hard work that Mrs Jones and Mrs Vincent have undertaken. We were the only school outside of a military base to be awarded a prize.

Service Pupil Premium Strategy
The Service Pupil Premium (SPP) is provided by the Department for Education (DfE) to enable schools to offer additional, mainly pastoral support during challenging times; this could include anything from a Service parent being away, being injured on active service, to bereavement. We have a small, yet consistent group of service pupils in school. The strategy below shows how we spend the additional funding to support our service pupils and their families.
