Folksworth C of E Primary School remains committed to spending this money in order to impact the targeted children in such a way that it does not openly discriminate against others. Initiatives primarily designed to impact on PP children are open to all children who are deemed to have the same need. In addition to direct spending on PP children much of this spending will also directly or indirectly impact positively across the whole school.
Please see the PDF below which illustrates how we have allocated our pupil spend.
