The pupil premium grant is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England. It’s a school-level grant that gives schools extra resources to help them meet challenges, including those arising from deprivation.
All children who are entitled to Free School Meals (FSM) because of their family circumstances bring an additional £1300 into the school budget to support their learning experiences at school. This money is known as Pupil Premium money and enables the school to plan and support learning opportunities for these children.
A child is entitled to Free School meals if parents/carers are in receipt of any of the following benefits:
Income-based Jobseekers Allowance
Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
The guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
Child Tax Credit (provided they are not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190, as assessed by Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs)
Working Tax Credit run-on – paid 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
During the initial roll out of the benefit, Universal Credit
If you are in receipt of any of the above please collect a form from the school office.
If your child is entitled to free school meals (FSM) anyway under the Universal Infant Free School Meal (UIFSM) scheme you still need to apply and register your entitlement otherwise the school will not receive this additional funding.
