Pupil Premium Funding
Introduced in 2011, the pupil premium is a sum of money given to schools each year by the Government to improve the attainment of disadvantaged children.
Your child may be eligible for free school meals – and accordingly pupil premium – if you receive any of the following benefits:
Support under Part IV of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
Child tax credit, provided that you are not also entitled to working tax credit and have an annual gross income of £16,190 or less
For more information please click here to visit the School Meals page or call in to the school office.
From September 2014, all children in Reception and Years 1 and 2 will qualify for free school meals, regardless of their family income, but only the children who would have qualified for free meals under the above income-based criteria will receive the pupil premium.
If your child qualifies for free school meals, it’s important that contact us – even if they take a packed lunch – as this enables us to claim pupil premium.
