Pupil Premium Funding

Pupil Premium Funding 

The Pupil Premium grant is funding provided to school by the government to help all children reach their full potential regardless of circumstances or financial situation. 
Pupil Premium funding is allocated to pupils who qualify for Free School Meals.  
 
Which pupils qualify for free school meals?
Your child may be eligible for free school meals if you receive any of the following:
 Income Support
 Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance or Employment and Support Allowance
 Support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
 The guaranteed element of Pension Credit
 Child Tax Credit (as long as you are not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)
 Working Tax Credit run-on
 Universal Credit
 
In addition, schools must provide free school meals to all pupils in reception, year 1 and year 2. This is known as Universal Infant Free School Meals.
 
If you think your child may be eligible for free school meals, or would like more information, please take a look at the 'Free School Meals - Is My Child Eligible?' leaflet below.
 
Also, did you know that by claiming free school meals, not only is your child guaranteed a delicious nutritious meal freshly cooked on site, but school also receives additional funding which is used to support learning and teaching.  At Berry Hill we also have a Pupil Premium policy which outlines our commitment to supporting families eligible for Pupil Premium by subsiding payments for Buddies before and after school club, uniform, trips and events.  Please see the Policy available on our 'Policies tab', or speak to the Office for more information.  

Also below is our annual Pupil Premium Statement for the last academic year. This sets out how we spend the Pupil Premium Funding that we receive and the positive impact on our children's learning and development.
