Pupil Premium funding was launched in 2011-12.

The funding is based on the number of children in school who have been eligible for free school meals in the past six years, are in care or adopted from care or have a parent in one of the services.

If your child does not currently have free school meals but may be eligible because of your family's income level, please contact the school office (in confidence) to register them.

Even if you do not wish your child to have the meal, school can still claim the Pupil Premium.

Please note that from September 2014 all children in YR, Y1 and Y2 will be entitled to a free school meal, - this does not mean they will be entitled to Pupil Premium funding.

If you have not previously registered your child to claim free school meal entitlement you still need to do this for school to claim Pupil Premium

If you would like more information please contact the headteacher, the Chair of our governing body, Mrs Lynn Sutcliffe or our designated Pupil Premium Champion Mrs Marion Nickson.
