Pupil Premium

In 2011-12 the Government launched its Pupil Premium Funding.  This money is sent to schools based on the number of pupils in the school who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM).  From 2012-13, it was expanded to include all children who have been eligible for FSM within the last 6 years and children in care of the Local Authority or from Forces families.

This money is allocated to initiatives to ensure pupils reach their full potential, both academically and socially.

If your child does not have Free School Meals, but may be eligible because of your family’s income level, please contact the School Office (in confidence) for information.  Alternatively you can:

  • Phone – 273 5705 or 273 6401 (you will need your National Insurance ( or NASS) number, the names of your child(ren) and their dates of birth
  • Apply online www.sheffield.gov.uk
  • Visiting First Point, Howden House, 1 Union Street, Sheffield S1 2FH

Even if you do not wish them to have the meals, this would mean the school could still claim Pupil Premium Funding that may be used to help your child.
