Like all schools in England, Settlebeck receives an extra amount of money, called the Pupil Premium, for students who receive free school meals. This is intended to be used to help overcome any disadvantage those students may face and help them achieve their potential.
At Settlebeck we use this money to provide one-to-one support, especially for literacy, to provide in-class support, attendance and family support, and to ensure that these students have access to all the opportunities we offer, for example trips abroad, music lessons etc.
We will always work with every one of our students to ensure they can play a full part in the life of our great little school, and that they achieve everything that they are capable of, and perhaps more than they believed they could. Every student here really does matter to us.
