Pupil Premium 2013-2014

In 2013-14 the school received £47,650.  50 children were eligible to receive support from the grant.  As well as measuring outcome by academic achievement (see below), at Forestdale Primary School we measure success through increased attendance and punctuality, improved emotional well-being and confidence, the equality of opportunity and the ability to engage with learning and the wider experiences of school life.
