Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who are known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM), children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months and children of service personnel. This includes pupils eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure). Research shows that these pupils underachieve compared to their peers. The pupil premium is provided to schools in order to support these pupils in reaching their potential.

Pupil Premium Strategy Statement 2023

Free School Meal Eligibility

Are you in receipt of any of the benefits listed below? If so, your child could be entitled to free school meals and attract the pupil premium - additional resources for the school.

 Income Support

 Income-Based Jobseekers Allowance

 Support under part VI of the Immigration & Asylum Act 1999

 Child Tax Credit - provided they are not entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual income (as assessed by Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs) that does not exceed £16,190

 Guaranteed element of State Pension Credit

 Income-Related Employment & Support Allowance

 Working Tax Credit 'run-on' - the payment someone may receive for a further four weeks after they stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit.

If your child is in early years or years 1 or 2, it is important to let the school know if your child qualifies for free school meals as this allows the school to access additional resources, the 'pupil premium', which can be used for extra support. You will need to provide evidence of the benefits that you receive to the school office for checking.

If your child is in years 3-6, you must apply for free school meals online

The office staff will be happy to assist you with any queries. All information is handled in strictest confidence.
