The Pupil Premium is an additional grant given to schools to support groups of children who may be disadvantaged. The funding is to support schools to close the gap in attainment between groups of Pupil Premium children and their peers.
You do not have to take up Free School Meals but signing up will trigger this additional funding. This will be to the benefit of your child as well as to others in the school. Please be assured this information is treated with total confidentiality.
