The Pupil Premium is an allocation of funding in addition to the budget provided to schools to support specific groups of pupils who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. These include pupils who are entitled to Free School Meals (FSM), those looked after by the LA and the children of armed service personnel. This funding is intended to support us in ensuring there is no difference in attainment between different groups of pupils.
Free School Meals are also available to children whose parents receive Income Support, Job Seekers Allowance, Child Tax Credit or the Asylum Seekers Allowance.
For information on how to apply for Free School Meals, please visit the Royal Greenwich website:
