Pupil Premium 2021-2024
(Updated September 2021)
Students eligible to receive this funding are in four groups:
- Students entitled to free school meals (FSM),
- Students that have been entitled to FSM during the last six years (Ever6),
- Children in care or looked after (CLA)
- Services children.
The Government believes that the pupil premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between disadvantaged children and their wealthier / more advantaged peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.
Our records show that the intervention programmes have been successful and that we are closing the gap between students in this cohort and others in the school in the following areas: attendance, punctuality, behaviour incidents, exclusions, attainment and achievement.
How To Register For Free School Meals Entitlement
Your child may be able to get free school meals if you get any of the following:
- Income Support
- income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
- income-related Employment and Support Allowance
- support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
- the guaranteed element of Pension Credit
- Child Tax Credit (provided you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)
- Working Tax Credit run-on - paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
- Universal Credit - if you apply on or after 1 April 2018 your household income must be less than £7,400 a year (after tax and not including any benefits you get)
Children who get paid these benefits directly, instead of through a parent or guardian, can also get free school meals.
