Pupil Premium & Free School Meals
The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011.
Primary schools are given a pupil premium for:
- Children in Reception to Year 6 who are, or have ever been, entitled to free school meals based on their family income Free School Meals application
- Children in care
- Children previously in care who have been adopted, or who have a special guardianship order, a child arrangements order or a residence order (to enable school to claim Pupil Premium you will need to inform the school about your child and provide supporting evidence, for example, show the school the original Adoption (Court) Order.
- Children recorded as being from service families
Schools should use the money to raise achievement for disadvantaged pupils. It has been for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.
We are committed as a school to ensure that this money is spent to significant effect.

Free School Meals – How can parents apply?
It is vital that all parents that qualify for free school meals still register their child with the local authority, even if they already receive Infant Free School Meals. The additional funding means that these children can benefit from additional school support. Please follow the link on Stockport MBC’s to see if you qualify.
