The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.
In the 2021 to 2022 financial year, schools will receive £1,345 for pupils in reception to year 6 for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years.
As you will see this is a significant amount of money and therefore it is vitally important that school receives funding for ALL children who are entitled.
To claim free school meals you can download a copy of the Free School Meal form or collect a copy from the school office. Please ensure you apply, even if your child is in receipt of universal infant free school meals or even if they bring packed lunches.
If you require any more information please contact Mr Walsh in the school office.
