Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools to address the current underlying inequalities between financially disadvantaged children and their peers. It is allocated to the following children:

  • Those who are looked after or adopted
  • Those whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces
  • Those who are in receipt of a pension under the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme or the War Pensions Scheme
  • Any pupils that have been eligible for free school meals in the last six years
  • Those eligible for free school meals (FSM)


Children are entitled to FSM if their parents are in receipt of one of the following benefits:

  • Universal Credit with an annual net earned income of no more than £7,400
  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseekers Allowance
  • Income related employment and support allowance
  • Support under Part 6 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The guarantee element of Pension Credit
  • Working Tax Credit run-on (paid for the four weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit)
  • Child Tax Credit (with no Working Tax Credit) with an annual income of no more than £16,190

Registering your child for FSM means that our school will get an extra £1320 to fund valuable support like additional teaching staff or after school activities. We recognise that the single biggest contribution to the progress of the disadvantaged pupils is the quality of teaching they receive on a day to day basis. So even if your child does not want to eat the school dinners please register to enable our schools to get the extra funding.
