The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and is paid to Local Authorities as a grant. It is based on how many pupils are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) or for children who are in Care (CiC) such as in fostering arrangements or whose parents serve in the Armed Forces.

Just fill in the short application form. You will need to give your name, date of birth, National Insurance Number (or your registered asylum seeker number) and your child’s details (name, date of birth) and you will need to put our school name in too.
The Council will then make automated checks to confirm your entitlement and if you qualify, they will tell you immediately, and write to you within three working days to confirm.
If it helps you, we could fill in the form on your behalf. You do not have to produce any paperwork for checking by the office staff.
Service Children (Forces Families)
Prior to 2014, Child Premium for Forces children was £300 per year. This funding is released to schools to support the emotional and social well-being of children whose parents serve in the Forces and who may be away from home on deployment. The Ministry of Defence has announced that the Service Children Premium will be extended to include children whose parent left the Forces within the last three years. Please do inform the office staff if one parent is in the Forces or has been in the last three years (2011 – 2014).
Currently the School has 3 children whose parents are in the armed forces
