Pupil Premium is a grant allocated to the school according to the number of pupils who claim free school meals (or who have during the last 6 years), have a parent in the forces, or are in foster care. This money is used to support teaching and learning in the school and to support the pastoral well-being of pupils and their families to ensure that all groups of pupils achieve what they are capable of.
Free School Meals
ALL pupils in reception, year 1 and 2 are entitled to a free school meal regardless of income, however if you do claim any of the stated benefits it is enormously helpful to us if you apply for Free School meals anyway as it means that we, as a school, receive extra funding which can be used to support teaching and learning in the school.
