Pupil Premium

Did you know that registering your child for Free School Meals means that the school gets extra money? For every child that is registered for Free School Meals, the school receives £1320. It will also make the following eligible for your child:

  • A Free School Meal (although the child does not need to take a school dinner)
  • Help with the cost of school trips
  • Targeted support if they require any extra help.

Please note that children in Key Stage 1 who are entitled to a Free School Meal under the government’s Universal Infant Free School Meals Scheme do not receive the additional benefits listed above, as the school does not receive the additional funding.
