Government National Pupil Premium Award 2016
National Winners for Infant, First and KS3 schools


Greenfylde C of E First School


On the 12th May 2016, we were thrilled when Greenfylde were announced as the National winners in the Government’s Pupil Premium Awards. This is an outstanding achievement for the school and the first time a Somerset school has been a National winner. The award is testament to the effort and enthusiasm shown by all the staff, children, Governors, parents and wider community in ensuring the children from the Ilminster area are afforded the best possible opportunities for their futures.
Although the Pupil Premium awards celebrate disadvantaged pupils including forces children, looked after/adopted children and those who have/have had free school meals it was noted that Greenfylde’s provision also directly improves the opportunities for all children in the school, something the Government is now looking to achieve in all schools.



Our school
