SSELP Poverty Strategy

We are committed to working with our local community.

Tinsley Meadows Primary Academy is committed to working with other schools across Sheffield to reduce financial hardship and the impact of poverty upon children.

We achieve this by;

  • providing food bank vouchers and hampers of food
  • making available good quality second hand school uniform
  • organising ‘Flog it Friday’ where parents can buy good quality second hand items for a reasonable price.
  • developing a family feast event
    (families will be invited to join staff and community partners to eat a meal, produced at low cost and will include a recipe card to encourage parent/carers to have a go and recreating this at home)
Tinsley Tummies

Tinsley Tummies, our school’s food bank, grew out of the increased need for families during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Families in need receive regular food parcels delivered by school staff.  We are very grateful to our food bank supporters: Asda, Greggs and Morrisons.

We are proud of our relationships with community partners who provide financial support to children and families in crisis and exceptional circumstances.
