What is Pupil Premium? 

In April 2011 the Government introduced the Pupil Premium Grant. This is a sum of money allocated to schools on the basis of the number of children who are entitled to Free School Meals (FSM) at any point over the last 6 years (known as Ever 6 FSM). This money is to be used to raise and accelerate the academic progress of these children. 


Are you Eligible? 

Your Child is eligible if: 

  • They are currently receiving FSM.
  • If they have received FSM in the last 6 years. 
  • If they have been "looked After" (CLA). 
  • If their parents are working in the armed forces. 


How to apply? 

You can apply in a range of ways but you do need to apply for each child.
