The pupil premium is a specific amount of funding allocated to schools based on the number of children eligible for free school meals, currently and at any time in the last six years. This funding is to support the achievement of disadvantaged children. The Government also requires schools from September 2012 to publish online details of how they have used the premium.
Sometimes parents are unaware that they may be eligible to claim for free school meals and if we know this then we encourage them to claim, whether or not they prefer to provide a packed lunch, as the school will as the school will receive extra funding.
