Our aim is to diminish the difference in the overall progress made between all groups of pupils, including those that are entitled to PPG. For more information about how we use the Pupil Premium Grant and the impact it has had across the school, please click on the links below.
Pupil Premium and Free School Meals
Since September 2014, all children in Key Stage One have been entitled to free school meals. This may mean the school is unaware of some Key Stage One children who would have been eligible for free school meals - and therefore the pupil premium grant. If you think that you your child would be eligible for free school meals and you are in receipt of one or more of the following benefits, please speak directly to a member of the Senior Management Team. We can then work with you to ensure that your child receives their full entitlement in school.
To be eligible you must be receiving one of the following:
Income support or income-based Job Seekers Allowance;
Child Tax Credit with an annual taxable income of less than £16,190 (provided you are not also entitled to Working Tax Credit)
Pension Guarantee Credit;
Income-related Employment and Support Allowance;
Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999.
If your child is in or about to enter Key Stage Two and you receive one or more of the above benefits, your child may be entitled to a free school meal and the pupil premium grant.
