The targeted and specific use of our Pupil Premium will help us in achieving our vision of the highest aspirations for all of our children. At St Patrick’s we want to support all children who are disadvantaged or underachieving. We recognise that not all children receiving free school meals (FSM) are disadvantaged or underachieving and that some children who are disadvantaged or underachieving are not having FSM.
What is Pupil Premium?
The Pupil Premium Grant is additional funding to help schools close the attainment gap between pupils from low-income and other disadvantaged families, and their peers. If a pupil has been eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) at any point over the past 6 years the school receives or has been looked after for one day or more (Child Looked After), the school receives an amount per head within their budget. A provision is also made for pupils who have a parent in the armed services.
How do I know if my child is eligible to receive Free School Meals?
You will be entitled to apply for free school meals and/or pupil premium for your child if you or your partner receive one or more of the following benefits:
Universal Credits: If you are currently receiving Universal Credits please bring into school the letter of confirmation in addition to completing the form above. All parents in receipt of Universal Credits are entitled to claim free school meals for their children in the interim. The DWP and DfE intend on publishing a threshold of income in the future and so your entitlement to free school meals may change once this is published.
