Pupil Premium

Could your child be entitled to Pupil Premium Funding? 

Although all KS1 children now receive a free school meal your KS2 child may be entitled to receive free school meals if you are entitled to receive one of the following: 


  • Income Support 
  • Income-based Job Seeker’s Allowance 
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999 
  • The Guarantee element of State Pension Credit 
  • Child Tax Credit, provided you are not entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual income that does not exceed £16,190
  • Working Tax Credit 'run-on' - the payment you may receive for a further four weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit 
  • Universal Credit

You could save up to 190 hours a year in time saved making packed lunches.  Your family could save around £350 per year. 

Our school will receive extra £1,300 Pupil Premium funding for each child entitled to free school meals.  This includes KS1 children whose parents or carers are entitled to receive one of the above benefits.

Service Pupil Premium 

Children of service personnel are also entitled to a reduced pupil premium if:


  • one of their parents is serving in the regular armed forces
  • one of their parents served in the regular armed forces in the last 3 years 
  • one of their parents died while serving in the armed forces and the pupil is in receipt of a pension under the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme (AFCS) and the War Pensions Scheme (WPS) 

Pupil Premium Plus (for Looked After Children or Children Adopted from Care) 
Children are entitled to Pupil Premium Plus of £1900 if:


  • They are adopted from Local Authority Care 
  • They are or have ever been “Looked After” by the Local Authority 

This funding is managed by the Local Authority’s Virtual Head Teacher and they will decide as part of the pupil’s Personal Education plan (PEP) how this money will be spent.

If you think your child qualifies for any of the above pupil premium funding, please speak to Mrs Alderson, Mrs Glanville or Mrs Piotrowski.
