Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?
Pupil Premium provides additional funding on top of the main funding a school receives. It is targeted at pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds to ensure they benefit from the same opportunities as students from less deprived families. From September 2014, the premium has been allocated to pupils who:

  • have been in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM),  or
  • have been continuously looked after for the past six months, or
  • have been adopted from care under the Adoption and Children Act 2002, or
  • have left care under a Special Guardianship or Residence Order, or
  • have parent/parents who are currently serving in the armed forces or are in receipt of a pension from the MoD


How the Pupil Premium is spent is monitored closely with all schools accountable for the impact of the money spent. At Holy Family, we pride ourselves on utilising the Pupil Premium to support our pupils to ensure we maximise the opportunities for all pupils to succeed.

My circumstances have changed. Is my child eligible for free school meals and the Pupil Premium?
Did you know you can claim free school meals for your child if your child is in full-time education, you are responsible for your child, and you get at least one of the following benefits:

  • Universal Credit and have a net household income of less than £7400 per annum
  • Income Support
  • Income based Jobseekers Allowance
  • Income related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Child Tax  Credit ONLY (not entitled/receiving Working Tax Credit) and have an income of less that £16190.00
  • Guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
  • Working Tax Credit run-on (paid for the four weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit)
  • Support under VI of the Immigration & Asylum Act


IMPORTANT: Even if your child receives Universal Free School Meal (Reception, Year 1 and Year 2) it is still important to apply, because our school will receive additional Pupil Premium funding for every eligible pupil.
