What is Pupil Premium?
The Pupil Premium grant is extra funding given to schools so that they can better support children who are disadvantaged and close the gap in attainment between them and their peers. It is based on the number of pupils who are eligible to receive free school meals, or who have ever been eligible within the previous 6 years.
Children who are eligible.
Fringford C of E Primary School receives the Pupil Premium grant based on the number of children eligible for free school meals, even if those children do not wish to take the free school meal.
Families in receipt of the following benefits may be eligible for free school meals:
- Income support
- Jobseeker's allowance (income based)
- Employment and Support Allowance (income related)
- Child Tax Credit, providing you are not receiving Working Tax Credit, and have an annual taxable income as assessed by the Inland Revenue within a set limit
- Pension Tax Credit and have an annual taxable income, as assessed by the Inland Revenue, with a set limit
- The 'Guaranteed' element of State Pension Credit
- Financial support, in accordance with the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999, from the National Asylum Support Service (NASS) or the Council's Asylum and Resettlement Team
If you think that your family income means that your child is eligible, but they are not registered, please contact Mr Pastore or Mrs McBride, in confidence.
A further grant is available to the school based on the number of children in families of Armed Services personnel. If this applies to you - please let the school know..
