Free School Meals
Is your child eligible for Free School Meals? Did you know that for every child that is in receipt of a Free School Meal the school will receive a Pupil Premium Fund.
What is Pupil Premium?
When a child is on our Free School Meals Register, the school receives extra money for that child which has to be spent only on the education of free school meals children. This is called Pupil Premium and its purpose is to ensure that children from low income families are not at a financial disadvantage during their education as a result of home circumstances. Children do not have to take our meals if they do not want to but, if they are on our Free School Meals register, then they qualify for all sorts of other benefits. This could be assisting with payments for school trips to attending Breakfast Club.
