The Pupil Premium Grant is a sum of money allocated to schools to ensure that all children have an equal chance to succeed in schools. An amount is allocated for children eligible for free school meals, who are from service families and those that are in Local Authority Care.
The free school meal children are either registered now or have been registered in the past 6 years for free school meals. The current funding allocation is £1,320 per pupil for free school meal pupils and children in Local Authority care.
The more children registered for free school meals, the more pupil premium… and the more funding available to ensure that these children make good progress.
*Parents are urged to register for a free school meal if they are eligible. You can find out more about Free School Meals and the Pupil Premium Grant here, on the City of York Council website, including information about how to apply.
Schools are expected to explain what they have received and how the money was used. You can also find our Pupil Premium Policy on the Policies Page of this website.
