What is the Pupil Premium?
The Pupil Premium is an amount of money that is given to a school from the Government to help disadvantaged children. The Pupil Premium is intended to benefit the children who are eligible, helping to narrow the gap between them and their classmates.

How do I apply for free-school meals so my child receives the Pupil Premium?

Please help us by clicking on the link at the bottom of the page to apply on-line - you will need your National Insurance number or Home Office number.
