Grateley Primary School

Service Families

38% of our children currently live within the Military community.

It is of paramount importance to us that all of our children, regardless of when they transition to our school, feel secure and safe within our environment. Due to the small nature of our community, we are able to deliver bespoke intervention of need; whether it is educational or emotional thereby ensuring that every child succeeds.

We employ a trainined ELSA (Mrs Baysting) who will, if required, work on a one to one basis with any child who needs emotional support whilst in our care.

We are looking at developing stronger links with our parents and serving units by engaging with local AWO (Army Welfare Officers) and the Military community.

The Pupil Premium we receive is spent in support of our Forces pupils and you can find information about how we spend this budget on our 'Pupil Premium' page.
