Does your child qualify for Pupil Premium? – up to £1320
You may qualify for a government contribution of up to £1320 to provide additional support and educational opportunities for your child.
Schools have a duty to provide additional support and opportunities for children whose parent(s) are in receipt of specific benefits. This is made possible through the Pupil Premium funding which schools are allocated after parents have completed, sometimes with school help, the necessary claim form. It is not automatic. Please see the table below to see if your child would be eligible for Pupil Premium
Free School meals are now provided for Reception, Year 1 and Year 2, but as you see the table below goes beyond that. Although pupils from Reception to Year 2 will automatically receive school meals, we still require you to register to enable the school, and your children, to benefit form the Pupil premium grant.
Your child could get a free school meal, and the school will receive the Pupil Premium grant if you receive any of the following:
If your family is in receipt of one of these benefits, then please contact the school office to enable us to support you in your application. It is important that you apply for this as soon as possible. The school can offer support with the application process. Over the academic year, the grant is used for the educational benefit of pupils at the school as well as specific benefits for your child including: school trips, supported activities within school, chargeable activities within school, occasional breakfast club or after school club attendance.
If a member of your family works for the Ministry of Defence (armed services) then you can apply to claim £300 for your child which will be paid direct to the school.
