The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 to provide schools with funding to support children in low income families who were eligible for free school meals, looked after children and families with parents in the armed forces. At Winnall Primary School, we ensure that this is carefully targeted so that there is an impact on improving children's learning and well-being.
For each child who is eligible for pupil premium funding, the school receives £1385.
From September 2014 all children who are in reception, year 1 or year 2 in a state-funded school will be offered a free healthy school lunch. From January 2015 all children under five will receive free milk and all children in receipt of free schools meals (FSM) will be offered free milk.
Those children who are five and over and not in receipt of FSM will be able to buy milk through the schools payment scheme.
Pupil Premium funding is given to schools based on eligibility for Free School Meals over the last 6 years (excluding the infant free school meals provision). Your child will be eligible for Free School Meals (and additional Pupil Premium funding for the school to support your child) if you or your partner are receiving any of the following benefits:
