What is the Pupil Premium?
The pupil premium is a funding grant provided by the Government directly to school to help all pupils reach their full potential, regardless of their background or financial situation. In 2021/2022 an additional recovery premium has been allocated to continue to be supported Pupil Premium children in the recovery of their learning as a result of the pandemic. Children may be eligible if they are:
- Registered for Free School Meals
- Are, or have been in care
- Have parents in the armed forces.
The Pupil Premium funding is used by school to improve the education and achievement of pupils who are eligible through focusing on teaching and learning, targeted learning support and wider support that will help to support children in achieving their full potential in school.
The impact of the spending is monitored carefully, and we work with our school governors to ensure that the spending of Pupil Premium grant is used effectively,
Who is entitled to Pupil Premium funding?
If you receive one of the following benefits, then your child may be entitled to Free School Meals:
- Income Support
- Income Based Job Seekers Allowance
- Income Related Employment and Support Allowance
- Child Tax Credit, but are not entitled to a Working Tax Credit and your annual income (as assessed by Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs) is less than £16,190
- Support under Part V1 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
- Guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
- Universal Credit
If you are on a low income, and in receipt of certain benefits, your child is not only entitled to a free school meal, but also things like free milk, help towards school trips and other support. We would urge all eligible parents to apply, as this application ensures that your child's school receives the additional funds to be able to provide this. You are entitled to this additional support if you have a child in Kirklees who is in full time education, and if you receive one or more of the above.
