Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is additional school funding for disadvantaged children. It is paid directly to your child's school to improve the quality of their education.

Your child's school may be entitled to additional Pupil Premium funding if you receive one of the following benefits:

  • Income Support
  • Income Based Job Seekers Allowance
  • Child Tax Credit Only (with income up to £16,190) with no element of Working Tax Credit
  • National Asylum Seekers Support
  • Guarantee Element of the State Pension Credit
  • Employment and Support Allowance (Income Related)
  • Universal Credit

How does my school get the Pupil Premium for my child?

Year 3 and above

If your child is in year 3 or above and receives free school meals the school will automatically get a Pupil Premium amount for them.

Infant years: reception, year 1 and year 2

All children at this age are eligible for free school meals so you will need to apply separately for the Pupil Premium for your child's school.

Use the online form below to apply.
