Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium (Free School Meals) is funding given to provide a range of additional support for children who come from lower income families. For every eligible child the school will receive £1,345 per year to improve learning.

Pupil Premium is only payable for those children whose parents meet the eligibility criteria below:

  • Income support
  • Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
  • Income-based Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support as a result of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit
  • Working Tax Credit
  • Universal Credit (if a household is earning less than £7,400 per year)

As of September 2014 all children will be entitled to a Universal Free School Meal, however this is not linked to additional funding for each child.

If you believe you would meet the above criteria please follow the link below as this will provide the extra funding of £1,345 to support your child in school.
