Pupil Premium and Free School Meals


All children in Key Stage One are entitled to free school meals.  This may mean the school is unaware of some Key Stage One children who are eligible for free school meals - and therefore the pupil premium grant.  If you think that your child is eligible for free school meals and you are in receipt of one or more of the following benefits, please speak to a member of office staff. 


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 free school meals and the pupil premium grant.
