Pupil Premium funding - why you need to apply and how we make sure it makes a difference
Please note despite the fact that the government has finally promised to keep free school meals for children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 you may be eligible for Pupil Premium. Last year we received £180,000 Pupil Premium top-up funding for parents on certain benefits. Disgracefully unless you apply we don't get that money even if your child is eligible for it. Put simply we are going to have to nag you to death to check because if all those eligible don't apply WE WILL HAVE TO LOSE STAFF! For Year 2 children moving into Year 3 the time of free school meals has now passed. You need to apply for Pupil Premium in order to still receive a free dinner. Details on what we receive, how we spend it and the impact this has is detailed in the 'Parents' section of this website.
