Pupil Premium Entitlement

Do you claim any of the following?


  1. Income Support (IS)
  2. Income Based Job Seekers Allowance (IBJSA)
  3. An income-related employment and support allowance
  4. Support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  5. Child Tax Credit (provided they are not entitled to Working Tax Credit) and have an annual income which from 6th April 2010 does not exceed £16,190 as assessed by Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs
  6. Guarantee element of State Pension Credit
  7. Children who receive Income Support (IS) or Income Based Jobseekers Allowance in their own right are also entitled to receive free school meals
  8. Universal Credit


If so, you may be entitled to Pupil Premium which is so much more than a free school meal

You may receive financial help towards the cost of:

  • uniform
  • trips
  • other school activities
  • as well as a free meal for your child at lunchtime (if you wish)


If you think this could apply to you there are 2 easy ways to check/apply:


Be aware: you need to apply for each child separately and Universal Free School Meals for Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 does not automatically entitle you to Pupil Premium.

You could always pop into the school office if you have a query and we will do our best to help. We could even assist with your application if needed. If accepted the school will be provided with additional funding which can then be used to enhance learning for your child and their peers.
