Hollington Primary Academy Pupil Premium 2016-17

If your child is eligible for free school meals but you have not completed a form because your child is in reception/ key stage 1 or brings a packed lunch, please ask Mrs Wibberley for a form. The school will receive funding that can be used to help your child.
