What is Pupil Premium?
The Pupil Premium is designed to ensure that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most. The funding is allocated to Local Authorities and schools with pupils from Reception to Y6 who are eligible for free school meals (FSM), are looked after or have parents currently in the Armed Forces. In 2013/14 the funding allocated was £900 per child. From April 2012 the coverage of the Premium was widened to include those eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years.
If you are not sure if your child is eligible for Pupil Premium Funding and Free School Meals, please contact the school office.
Are you entitled to Pupil Premium?
Pupil Premium funding is linked to individual students and for your child to gain access to our Pupil Premium provisions, you must apply. The main criterion for eligibility is entitlement to ‘Free School Meals’. However, with the introduction of the new ‘Universal Free School Meals’ for all pupils in Early Years, Year 1 and Year 2, and Southwark Council has introduced free, healthy school meals for all primary school children in the borough from September 2011, it has become more difficult for us to ensure that all those families who meet the Pupil Premium criteria actually apply.
If you are unsure about your entitlement or have any questions, please contact the school office for further advise.

Free, healthy school meals FOR ALL
Southwark Council introduced free, healthy school meals for all primary school children in the borough from September 2011. This was done because the council wanted Southwark to be a fairer borough, with children fed well at school, able to do better and enjoying improved health.
To receive a free, healthy school meal, your child needs to attend reception or year 1 in a Southwark primary school and you need to complete the 'Free healthy School Meals' application form below and return it to the school office.

We continuously review our pupil premium children’s outcomes and assess the quality of provision for them. This allows us to ensure that we provide quality provisions which can increase your child’s progress.
