We are committed to ensuring that all of our pupils achieve their very best. We strongly believe that our pupils' potential to learn and their aspirations for the future should not be limited by their socio-economic background. As a school, we receive additional funding (Pupil Premium Grant) to support our pupils who are currently receiving Free School Meals, or who have been eligible to receive Free School Meals at any time over the last 6 years.
We are committed to ensuring that the Pupil Premium Grant we receive, is used effectively to meet the unique needs of our pupils. In identifying the barriers to learning faced by our pupils, we have created a strategy that will support them to become confident, aspirational learners.
How can I find out if my child is entitled to the Pupil Premium Funding?
The process for applying is straightforward and confidential. For more information please speak to a member of staff in the school office. After entering essential details into the web site, the online application process links to the Department for Education system for checking eligibility and gives an immediate ‘yes’ or ‘no’ response, which will be notified to the school. All enquiries will be treated in confidence.
Children in Reception and Key Stage1 are automatically entitled to a free school lunch; however, registering your child for free meals if you are eligible will help provide the school with additional funding which in turn will benefit all pupils.

-Income based Jobseeker's Allowance
