Is my child entitled to Pupil Premium Funding?
If your child goes to school within the Cheshire West and Chester area, you may be able to claim free school meals. All key stage one pupils will automatically receive them. You need to apply with us if you are receiving one of the benefits listed below as your school can claim additional funding which can help towards equipment and resources.
Your child will be entitled to Pupil Premium Funding if you are receiving one of the following benefits.
- Income Support
- Income Based Jobseekers Allowance
- Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
- Support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
- Child Tax Credit but not Working Tax Credit and have an annual income that does not exceed £16,190
- The Guarantee element of State Pension Credit
- Working Tax Credit run-on - paid for four weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
- Universal Credit - if you apply on or after 1 April 2018 your household income must be less than £7,400 a year (after tax and not including any benefits you get)
To apply please visit the Cheshire West and Chester website. The process is easy, confidential and makes a huge difference to the school and therefore the pupils.
In addition Pupil Premium Funding is available for any child who is adopted from care and also any child who is looked after/cared for. Please inform us if your child falls in to one of these categories as this funding helps us to make a difference to their time with us at St Paul's.
Pupil Premium funding is used in a variety of ways including:
- Employing additional staff to support children
- Music lessons
- Sports activities
