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.



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


  • Universal Credit with an annual net earned income of no more than £7,400.

  • Income Support

  • Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance

  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance

  • Support under Part 6 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999

  • The guarantee element of Pension Credit

  • Working Tax Credit run-on (paid for the four weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit)

  • Child Tax Credit (with no Working Tax Credit) with an annual income of no more than £16,190


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