How does it work?

1. First, check if you qualify – it is not just if you are unemployed, so please look at the list below.


Do you qualify?

You can register your child for Free School Meals if you get any of these benefits:

•                Income Support

•                Income-based Jobseeker's Allowance

•                Income-related Employment and Support Allowance

•                Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999

•                The Guarantee element of State Pension Credit

•                Child Tax Credit, provided they are not entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual income (as assessed by HM Revenue & Customs) that does not exceed £16,190

•                Working Tax Credit 'run-on' - the payment someone may receive for a further four weeks after they stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit

2. Registering is really quick and easy – if you think you qualify, contact School Meals Team 01623 433433 who will help you to register.

3. If you want your child to have a free, healthy meal at lunchtime that’s great – they will get the free meal (saving you more that £350 a year), extra benefits and the school gets up to £1320 extra.

4. If you don’t want your child to have the school meals they can continue as normal – as long as you qualify and are registered, the school still gets up to £1300 extra


5.Even if your child gets Universal Free School Meals ( School years R, 1 and 2) if you are entitled to Free School Meals then you still need to register to ensure your child’s school get the funding.


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

Please talk to us about registering your child today or call 01623 433433 and ask for Free School Meals Team

2016-2017 Pupil Premium Funding

Additional Pupil Premium Eligibility 2016

Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.

Pupil Premium Headlines


There is a requirement on schools to focus on narrowing educational attainment gaps between disadvantaged learners and their more advantaged peers.


The Government believes that the pupil premium funding is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between pupils eligible for pupil premium and those who are not.


All schools get an additional funding allocation based on the number of :

1) pupils eligible for free school meals (FSM)

2) pupils who have been in the care of the LA for 6 months

3) children of parents in the armed forces


For 2015/2016 we have been allocated £1320 per eligible pupil in reception year to year 6. This has risen from £1300 last year.


A measure will be included in the performance tables to capture the achievement of the pupils supported by pupil premium.


The funding contributed greatly to the following initiatives, having a significant impact on the progress and achievement of pupils, particularly those entitled to FSM (see data).


This academic year (2015/2016) it is intended that funding is used to part fund the following provision:

  • Before School Club - Open daily 7.30 – 9am.  A breakfast club with activities available for all children from Reception to Year 6. 
  • Rigorous 1:1 interventions to support those who are not making expected progress in reading, writing or maths
  • After school clubs available to all children from Year 1 to 6 free of charge to PP children
  • Music tuition and purchasing musical instruments
  • Attendance Rewards – Rewards for attendance available to all children from Reception to Year 6 
  • Enrichment - Curriculum enrichment activities (visits/visitors)
  • Therapist - 1:1 therapist for children identified as requiring support with emotional issues.
  • Nurture/Social Groups 
  • Small Group/ 1:1 Tuition - Targeted support for groups within school from FS to Year 6, for those children not making age related expectations.
  • Boosters - Year 5 & 6 Boosters for Literacy and Maths for identified children.

Pupil Premium Expenditure 2015-2016

Pupil Premium Expenditure 2014-2015

So far this year, 44% of all children are attending extracurricular sports clubs (up from 19% whole of last year) and 42% of children have participated in inter-school events across a broad range of sports (up from 29% whole of last year). In terms of more qualitative feedback, all children attending have reported enjoying the events; word seems to have spread and there are far more enthusiastic volunteers for events (particularly encouraging as children who haven’t volunteered previously are putting themselves forward). Sports leaders are doing a great job promoting and encouraging physical activity/sport at lunchtime with KS1 children.
