The Pupil Premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils (those receiving FSM, CiC or recently adopted). The Pupil Premium funding is provided to schools which is in addition to main school funding. In 2012 funding was extended to include pupils who have been eligible for free school meals within the past 6 years. It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility. The school’s Governing Body have been kept closely informed over how the school use the money.
To check if your child is eligible for free school meals and to sign up if you are, go to www3.hants.gov.uk/caterers/hc3s-freeschoolmeals and click on ‘I would like to check for free school meal eligibility’. You will be asked to input your national insurance number and date of birth. This is an easy online service that will give you a quick answer to see if your child is eligible.
