Disadvantaged grant report.

Marlfields Primary Academy receives a ‘Disadvantaged Grant’ from the Government for each child that is eligible for free school meals (‘FSM’), or has been eligible at any time in the last six years. This is not part of the Universal Free School Meal for Reception to Year 2. A similar grant is also received for children in the care of the Local Authority (LAC), children of armed forces personnel and children who have been adopted. As a school we ensure that teaching and learning opportunities met the needs of all the pupils. Therefore we believe that children benefit when it is possible to keep teaching groups within a reasonable range. Funding is allocated following a needs analysis to identify priority classes, groups or individuals.
