Which children will trigger the Pupil Premium?Back to top

Children receiving Free School Meals
If you are receiving one of the the benefits listed below (and your child is registerd for Free School Meals), your child will trigger Pupil Premium Funding at their school:

  • Income support
  • Income-based Jobseekers Allowance
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under Part V1 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (provided you're not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than 216,190)
  • Universal Credit

If you are entitled to Working Tax Credit during the four week period immediately after your employment stops, or after you start to work less than 16 hours per week, your child would also be eligible for free school meals for this four week period only.
This information is accurate at the time of printing but it is subject to Government policy so may change in the future.

These children will also trigger Pupil Premium Funding:
Children who have been looked after for 1 day or more;
Children who are adopted;
Children who leave care under a Special Guardianship Order or a Residence Order.

What about children who are in Reception or KS1?Back to top

From September 2014 the government introduced Universal infant free school meals. This means that parents with children in key stage one, that is reception, year 1 and year 2 in a state funded school will be eligible to claim a free school meal for their child. There are no eligibility criteria, every key stage one child will be entitled.

if your child is in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 and you are in receipt of one of the benefits listed above, it is vital that you register for free school meals. This will ensure that the school gets the funding to support your child. It will also save you having to register for free school meals when your child moves into Key Stage 2 (Year 3).
