Pupil premium is additional funding provided to schools for supporting children who are at a greater risk of underachievement. There are three categories of children that qualify for pupil premium:
- Children who are eligible for free school meals (FSM),
- Children looked after by the Local Authority
- Armed forces children
Based on data obtained from the DfE, London schools served by LGfL, are missing out on a total of about £50m in unclaimed Pupil Premium.
We invite you as a parent to participate in an initiative to maintain and drive up the funds received by the school through Pupil Premium. If your child is eligible for a Free School Meal then the school gets extra funding through the Pupil Premium.
To simplify the process by which you can check for free school meals eligibility there is a web site which provides an immediate response to your application and also notifies the school of eligibility, allowing the school to make arrangements for meal provision and pupil premium.
