Pupil Premium Eligibility and Application Form

The Government is giving money to schools to help children from lower income families do their very best. This funding is called a ‘Pupil Premium’.


This money could enable us to fund additional resources. For example, extra one to one tuition, new equipment and materials for pupils or provide extra classroom support. If you are registered for Free School Meals/Pupil Premium you could also get help with costs to support your child’s education and achievement. For example, the pupil premium can help fund the cost of school trips, extracurricular activities and books.



This criteria for eligibility is where parents/guardians are in receipt of one or more of the following benefits:


  • Income Support
  • Income-based Job Seekers' Allowance
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • the Guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit, provided you are not also entitled to Working Tax Credit, and have an annual gross income, of no more than £16,190 as assessed by Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs1
  • Working Tax Credit run-on - paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit


No other benefits qualify for pupil premium for Key Stage 1.
