Free School Meals
Pupil Premium is additional funding allocated to schools to support pupils from low-income families. Although schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit, schools will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupil’s attainment and progress.

As of the 1st January 2015, all schools across England have been required to ensure that milk is made available during the school day to all pupils.
As at present, all children aged between 5 and 18 who are eligible for free school meals (where the school claims a Pupil Premium) must be offered free milk. Schools use the dedicated schools grant to fund the provision of milk for eligible pupils.
The scheme offers each pupil 189ml of milk at a subsidised price of 22p per child per day. Children under five years old have milk free of charge, as do all those eligible to free school meals.
