£12,000 over one year to Bonneville Primary School to pilot the Families First project. This aims to provide integrated family support for low income parents, particularly those who have poor English language skills. There are a mixture of workshops targeting engagement with education, ESOL, debt/benefits support and employment opportunities. The school will also run parent/child trips to museums to encourage parents to utilise the free cultural facilities in London. This project will focus (but not exclusively) on Early Years and Key Stage 1 pupils.
