The school receives a Pupil Premium grant in addition to our main school funding. The purpose of the grant is to help schools address current inequalities and to raise the attainment of children from disadvantaged families. The amount we receive is based on the number of pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM); pupils who are in care and have been looked after continuously for more than 6 months; children of active armed forces personnel.
Even if you do not wish them to have the meals, this would mean the school could still claim Pupil Premium funding that may be used to help your child.
