The Pupil Premium is allocated to our school based on the number of children who;
- Are eligible for free school meals
- Looked after children
- Are recently adopted
- Children who have parents/carers in the Armed Forces are allocated Services funding.
This money is allocated to initiatives to ensure these children reach their full potential, both academically and socially. King William Street has a Pupil Premium Policy which explains how this funding will be used in school. Click on the link here to view the policy.
Information for Parents
Currently, all children from Reception to Y2 are eligible for a daily free school meal thanks to the government’s recent implementation of the Universal Infant Free School meals initiative.
In addition to this, some children would be eligible anyway for Free School Meals due to their parent(s)/carer(s) meeting the appropriate criteria (see list below). With this comes a sum of money paid directly to their school.
Your child may be eligible for free school meals – and accordingly pupil premium – if you receive any of the following benefits:
- Income support
- Income-based jobseekers’ allowance
- Income-related employment and support allowance
- Support under Part IV of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
- The guaranteed element of state pension credit
- Child tax credit, provided that you are not also entitled to working tax credit and have an annual gross income of £16,190 or less
- Universal credit
