What is Pupil Premium?

We need you…help us get extra funding and it won’t cost you a penny!

Schools are entitled to extra funding called ‘Pupil Premium’ which the Government gives to schools to hep children that may need extra support.  The Government decides who gets the funding using the same criteria as for those claiming a free school meal but since free school meals were introduced for ALL primary children from Reception to Year 2 schools are finding it hard to get extra funding. 

Each child who qualifies for pupil premium will be allocated £1,320 per child per year to the school in additional funding!

Once a child qualifies for the funding the school can then claim the funding for 6 years which is a huge help and the extra money can be spent on things like extra staff, learning materials and equipment to help your child. 

How can you help? 

If you are on any of the following benefits below you can unlock the extra funding….

  • Universal Credit
  • Working Tax Credit
  • Child Tax Credit
  • Income Support
  • Income-based Job Seekers Allowance
  • Income related Employment and Support Allowance
