Free School Meals and the Pupil Premium

Did you know … just registering your child for Free School Meals means that the school gets extra money?

Register now to make sure we don’t miss out .....

The Government is giving money to schools to help children from lower income families do their very best. This funding is called a ‘Pupil Premium’.  You can see how we spent our pupil premium last year by looking under specialist support in the about us tab.

No one will know you have registered and it will not affect any other benefits you are claiming.

If you require futher information please ring school and talk to Mrs Patterson who will be able to discuss with this you.
