Supporting our most disadvantaged children and families

one of the following benefits:
- Income support
- Income based Job Seekers Allowance
- Income related Employment and Support Allowance

As a thank you to all parents who are eligible for EYPP, the school will be providing a £10.00 Tesco voucher.
