The Government provides a Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, for any pupil who has received Free School Meals in the last 6 years. They believe that this is the best way target public spending at the children who need it most. As this funding is due to increase by nearly half in April it is incredibly important that you claim Free School Meals if you are eligible. Your child will not only get a hot meal every lunchtime but they will also benefit from activities we can provide because of this additional funding which will help their social, emotional, physical and academic development.
