Pupil Premium Funding

Schools receive additional funding for children who qualify because they are looked after by the local authority, those who have been eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (also known as Ever 6 FSM) and for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces. We then target the money so that these pupils who are known to achieve less well, have the chance to do as well as their peers. We evaluate the plan every year and then decide how to use the funds for the next year, which you can see below. If you think you may be entitled to claim (even if your child is already getting a free meal because they are in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2) PLEASE click below - every penny helps the school!

Who can get free school meals

Your child can get free school meals if your combined annual household income is below £16,190 (as assessed by HMRC) and you get one of the following benefits:

  • income-based: income support or jobseeker’s allowance (not eligible if on contribution based jobseeker’s allowance)

  • income-related: employment support allowance (not eligible if on contribution based employment support allowance)

  • universal credit

  • income support

  • the guaranteed element of state pension credit

  • support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999

  • child tax credit only.
