Free School Meals/Pupil Premium Application

Research shows that better food in schools is improving what children eat during the school day, and there’s evidence of a clear link between what children eat at lunchtime in school, where they eat it and how they focus with their teachers in the afternoon.


All children in reception, year 1 and year 2 in state‐funded schools in England are eligible for free school meals. This includes infant pupils in maintained infant and primary schools, free schools, academies, special schools and pupil referral units.


The Pupil Premium is a Government scheme that provides funding to schools of £955 ‐  £1,345 per pupil whose parents receive one of the qualifying benefits listed on the application form. The school can use this money to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.


If you receive one of the qualifying benefits on the application form, please complete the form below and return it to your child’s school as soon as possible.  Pupil Premium funding gives the School greater flexibility in being able to support our pupils.  All applications are in the strictest confidence.
