Pupil Premium/Free School Meals

The pupil premium grant is given by the government to schools in England to decrease the attainment gap for the most disadvantaged children, whether by income or by family upheaval. For each pupil who is eligible for free school meals, their school receives £1,320.

More than 30% of our families attract this premium for us. Resulting in school receiving over £70,000 to help ‘close the gap’.


Children may be eligible for free school meals if their parents receive the following benefits:

  • Universal Credit, provided the annual net earned income does not exceed £7,400 (£616.37 per month)
  • Income Support
  • Income based Employment and Support Allowance
  • Income based Job Seekers Allowance
  • Child Tax Credit (conditions apply).


If you receive any of the above or are still unsure, please follow the link below to find out if you are eligible.
