Free School Meals and Pupil Premium

Free School Meals and Pupil Premium

Some children of families on low income from Reception to Year 6 are entitled to free school meals. You can apply for school meals if you receive:

  • Income Support
  • Income Based Jobseekers Allowance
  • Income Related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Child Tax Credit with an annual income of less than £16,190, provided they are
    not receiving Working Tax Credit
  • the ‘Guaranteed’ element of the State Pension Credit
  • support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999 (you will need
    to apply directly to the school or call the Education Service on 01274 439393)
  • Working Tax Credit run-on (paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for
    Working Tax Credit)
  • Universal Credit with an annual net earned income threshold of less than
    £7,400                                                     

                                       What is Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools for children of statutory school age from low income families who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM): to children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months and to children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces

 if you receive one of the benefits from the list above you may also get help with:

  • the cost of residential school trips (speak to your school about this)
  • travel costs to school
  • school uniform costs (speak to your school about this)
  • music lessons at school (please contact your child’s school for information)

For each child registered for free school meals, schools receive a pupil premium of £1,300 (Primary schools) or £935 (Secondary schools) per year. This money is to help your child achieve their best at school.
