Pupil Premium Funding - Are You Eligible?

If your child is eligible for free school meals, the school may also be entitled to receive a sum of money to support their learning.

If your child qualifies for free school meals, it is important that you tell us – even if they take a packed lunch – as this enables their entitlement to Pupil Premium funding. It is particularly important if your child is in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 (as your child automatically receives a free meal at lunchtime) that you still check to see if your child is eligible for the additional funding which covers so many other areas.

Free School Meals/Pupil Premium are available to pupils in receipt of, or whose parents are in receipt of, one or more of the following benefits: 

  • Universal Credit (provided you have an annual net earned income of no more than £7,400, as assessed by earnings from up to three of your most recent assessment periods).
  • Income Support.
  • Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance.
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance.
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999.
  • The guarantee element of Pension Credit.
  • Child Tax Credit (provided you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190).
  • Working Tax Credit run-on – paid for four weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit.

Then you could be entitled to receive this additional financial support for your child's education:

As part of this, we will provide:

  • A fully-funded and complete set of new school uniform.
  • One fully paid peripatetic club opportunity for your child (music or sports).
  • Educational school trips and visits paid for (plus a contribution towards all residential trips).
  • The remaining funds will go towards supporting your child’s academic progress within school.
