Pupil Premium

In April 2011, the Government introduced the pupil premium and the service premium. This gave schools £625 million of extra funding to close attainment gaps for disadvantaged pupils and to assist with the pastoral needs of children with parents in the armed forces.

Did you know… just registering your child for Free School Meals means that the school gets extra money?  The Government is giving money to schools to help children from lower income families do their very best. This funding is called a ‘Pupil Premium’. From April 2014 for every child registered for Free School Meals, the school will receive an extra £1,320 in funding. If you do think that you may be eligible please register as soon as possible to make sure your child does not miss out.

If you are in receipt of certain state benefits, you may qualify for free school meals. Please complete the online referral at
