School Funding

Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is allocated to local authorities and schools with pupils on roll that are known to have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any time in the last six years.  The funding allocation per pupil changes each year. 


Our school has the freedom to spend the Pupil Premium, which is additional to the underlying schools budget, in a way we think will best address inequalities, tackle disadvantage and support the raising of attainment for our pupils. 


How to apply for Pupil Premium funding:

All Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 pupils are now entitled to have free meals without it being dependent on family income.  However, this makes it harder for us to find out which pupils are eligible for the Pupil Premium.  If you are in receipt of any of the benefits listed below then the school may be able to receive this extra funding:


  • Income Support
  • Income Based Jobseekers Allowance
  • Income Related Employment & Support Allowance
  • Child Tax Credit, but not entitled to Working Tax Credit and whose annual income (as assessed by HMRC) does not exceed £16,190
  • Support under part VI of the Immigration & Asylum Act 1999
  • Guarantee element of State Pension Credit


You can get a form from the school office to apply for the funding, or visit Cambridgeshire County Council website.  If you are unsure of require any help filling in the form, them please do not hesitate to contact the school.

Primary PE & Sports Premium Funding


Sports Premium funding should be used to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport that schools offer. This means that they should use the Primary PE and Sport Premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers
  • build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.
