Eastbourne MP Stephen Lloyd last week visited Shinewater Primary School to see the difference that the Pupil Premium was making to the school and its most disadvantaged students. The Pupil Premium gives primary schools £1,320 for every pupil who has registered for free school meals at any time in the last six years.
Headteacher Theresa Buttery said, “The Pupil Premium makes all the difference to being able to improve life chances for Shinewater children. It’s the difference between just doing the basics and enriching our pupils’ experiences and opportunities. The Pupil Premium has been a great help, and is building real life-opportunities for so many of our pupils.”
