Extra Support for your child - Pupil Premium Funding

Dear Parents,




Pupil Premium is extra money that the UK Government gives to schools to help disadvantaged children catch up with their peers. We use this money to provide focused support for eligible children, and to provide a free Breakfast Club place if you wish to accept it.


If you receive certain benefits, your child could be entitled to Pupil Premium funding:


  • Universal Credit - your household income must be less than £7,400 a year (after tax and not including any benefits you get)
  • Income Support
  • income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
  • income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • the guaranteed element of Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (provided you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)
  • Working Tax Credit run-on - paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit


(If you still qualify for Working Tax Credit, then your child is not entitled to Pupil Premium.)


You can check your eligibility by going to All you need to apply is:

  • Your name
  • Your date of birth
  • Your National Insurance number, or your National Asylum Support Service (NASS) number


Alternatively, you can come to the School Office for help to apply and check eligibility – staff will be available on Tuesdays just before the end of the school day (2:45pm to 3:15pm) each week. Please bring the information above to apply.


Yours sincerely


Mrs K Thapar
