Pupil Premium is funding to improve education outcomes for disadvantaged pupils in schools in England.
Evidence shows that disadvantaged children generally face additional challenges in reaching their potential at school and often do not perform as well as other pupils.
Schools have the freedom to spend the Premium in a way they think will best support the raising of attainment for those pupils who are eligible.
Who is eligible?
Do any of the following apply to you?
- You receive Child Tax Credits (but not Working Tax Credits) and your gross annual family income is less than £16,190.
- You receive Income support.
- You receive Income Based Jobseekers Allowance (Contributions Based Jobseekers allowance is not a qualifying benefit).
- You receive Income Related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA).
- You receive a Guaranteed Element of State Pension Credit.
- You are an Asylum Seeker and receive support from the National Asylum Support Service (NASS) under Part 4 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999.
If so, you are eligible to claim Free School Meals and your child will receive the Pupil Premium Funding to help with their individual needs in school.
Please enquire at the school office, or speak to Mrs J. Mills, Pupil Premium Lead, if you need assistance in registering for Free School Meals.
