Pupil Premium

Historically the school has been able to claim 'Pupil Premium' for any child eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years.  With the introduction of 'Universal Free School Meals' it is essential that we continue to identify any families that could benefit from the support of 'Pupil Premium'  If a parent is in receipt of any of the following benefits the school is still able to claim 'Pupil Premium', which is additional money targeted at supporting your child's learning.  If parents are in any doubt about eligibility, by simply providing the school with your National Insurance number we can access a service that will verify the school’s entitlement to claim.
