    • Pupils who attended extra-curricular activities, such as Drumming Club, have developed a variety of skills and have made invaluable progress in terms of their confidence and self-esteem. Taking part in these activities has also enabled them to make new friends, feel settled in school and develop their social skills.
    • The children who attended counselling have all benefitted greatly from their sessions. The impact of providing children with time to reflect upon their feelings and explore their emotions is far-reaching. For example, both home and school have witnessed improved behaviour and increased levels of confidence.   
  • Attending After School Club has enabled pupils to socialise with their peers, eat healthy snacks and to complete their homework using school resources.  Taking part in school trips has enabled children to consolidate and extend the learning that has taken place at school, experience different places and enjoy time outside of school with their peers.   
  • Additional resources that have been bought, such as new school uniforms, have helped to reduce the financial pressures that some families can experience.
