Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM) in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months. In addition to this money is provided to schools for service children.

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011.

For every child that is entitled to Free School Meals the school receives extra funding to enhance provision and improve progress and outcomes for children.  So please apply even if you do not wish to take up your Free School Meal.

When your application is received, your eligibility will be checked with the Department for Education, Department for Work and Pensions and HM Revenue and Customs.  If unsuccessful, children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 will still receive Universal Infant Free School Meals.
