  • National Asylum Seekers Support
  • Guarantee Element of the State Pension Credit

How does my school get the pupil premium for my child?


If you think you may be entitled to Pupil Premium, please follow the link below to complete an eligibility check and apply. Thank you. 


Please note: if your child is entering Reception, they will automatically receive universal free school meals. They can still receive Pupil Premium funding in addition to this, but you will still need to apply for it, through the school office. Please be aware that a child must reside with the applicant to receive the pupil premium.
