We receive Pupil Premium funding for each pupil registered for a free school meal at any time in the last 6 years. The funding is currently £1320 per pupil. This money enables us to support these pupils in any way necessary to improve their education.
If you register your child for free school meals, your child would be entitled to a daily meal currently worth £2.12 but would not have to take it for the school to receive the Pupil Premium funding.
Entitlement to free school meals is kept confidential and the pupils having the meals all receive them together and in the same way, regardless of whether their parents have paid for them or not.
