Pupil Premium

Introduced in April 2011, the pupil premium is allocated to children who are/ have been looked after by the local authority, those who are/ have been eligible for Free School Meals at any point in the last six years and for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces.

If you think that your circumstances mean that your child may be entitled to Free School Meals (even if they are in Key Stage 1 and already get them) then please speak to Mrs Pugh in the office.  There are benefits to claiming the Free School Meals even if your child is in Reception/ Key Stage 1 and receive them anyway such as subsidised trips.
