Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium


What is the Pupil Premium?

This is funding given to schools for every child who has free school meals. The government provides this funding because it believes there is a strong link between the financial background of families and their children's achievement.

How does the school access the money?

School completes a census several times a year indicating how many children have free school meals. The funding is multiplied by the number of children.

How can I find out if my child is eligible for free school meals and the Pupil Premium?

Please ask at the office as we can answer your questions and help you apply for free school meals.

Can my child still benefit from the Pupil Premium even if they are on packed lunches?

If your family is eligible for free school meals but your child chooses to have packed lunches, school will still receive the Pupil Premium funding.

Will my child lose the Pupil Premium funding if they stop having free school meals?

No, the school continues to receive the funding for 6 years. If your child moves onto high school in that time, the high school would receive the continued funding. This is called EVER6 funding.
