Pupil Premium

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

 

Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. These include children who are entitled to free schools meals, children looked after by the local authority and children of armed service personnel. Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However they will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support these groups of learners. New measures will be included in the performance tables that will capture their achievement.

 

All children in the Reception Year, Year 1 and Year 2 receive a free school meal.  However, it is still important for you to complete an application in order for your child's school to be eligible to receive the additional benefits above.

 

Your child will also be able to get free school meals if you receive any of the following benefits:

 

  • Income Support
  • Income-based Job-seekers Allowance
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit, as long as you do not get a Working Tax Credit and do not have an annual income (as assessed by HM Revenues and Customs) that exceeds £16,190.
  • Working Tax Credit run-on paid for four weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit.
  • Universal Credit.

 

To check if you are eligible please call 01473 260989

 

If your child is eligible, you can apply online at www.suffolk.gov.uk/freeschoolmeals (or click on the link below). If your child is about to start school full-time and you already have an older child receiving a free school meal, you do not need to fill in a new application form.

Application for Free School Meals

 

There is also additional funding for pupils who were previously Looked After Children (LAC), so if your child has been addopted, or previously been in care, then please speak to the headteacher for information on how the school can secure funding to support your child.
