Pupil Premium (Previously known as Free School Meals)

Depending on a families personal circumstances children may qualify for Pupil Premium (Free School Meals).  

The government gives the school additional funding for every pupil premium child so it is very important that every child, regardless of year group, registers if they qualify.  Although every child in Reception class, Year 1, and Year 2 in any state-funded school will get a free school meal every day older children can also get free school meals, but you have to apply. Your child will get a free school meal if you receive a qualifying benefit.

Regardless of the year group it is important that you apply for pupil premium if you qualify.  The additional funding not only supports the school it can help you too!  It helps us fund any additional learning support your child may need in class.

In order to claim FSMs a parent must be claiming one of the following benefits:

Income Support
Income-Related Employment and Support Allowance
Income-Based Job Seekers Allowance
Child Tax Credit (but no Working Tax Credit is being received by the

The Guaranteed Element of Pension Tax Credit.
Asylum Seeker under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
