Impact:

  • The outcomes of FSM pupils vary at different times depending on the children & their individual needs. Sometimes, our FSM children appear in multiple pupil groups such as SEND (Special Educational Needs & Disabilities) which then affects their academic outcomes.
  • Where FSM pupils do not have Special Educational Needs & Disabilities, they normally attain within the expected range or above in comparison to the national average.
  • Most of our FSM pupils make good to outstanding progress.
  • FSM pupils also show increased confidence as a result of targeted interventions, greater levels of support or access to extra-curricular activities.

  • It’s been slightly difficult with us coming from another school. There was no way the teacher could have been told everything, but within just a couple of weeks we felt that she had gained an excellent understanding of our child. We couldn’t be happier with the support our child has been given during her first term at TASS! Thank you!
