Pupil Premium

The pupil premium grant is funding provided to schools to diminish the difference in attainment between disadvantaged pupils and their peers. The grant can be spent as each school sees fit, as long as it is used to improve the attainment of eligible pupils.

At Primrose Lane Primary School we have high aspirations and ambitions for all our children and we are determined to ensure that our children are given every chance to achieve well.

Eligibility for Free School Meals

A parent may wish to check their child's eligibility for Pupil Premium or continued free school meals (from Key Stage 2) and Leeds City Council has information on their website for this.

Eligibility Criteria

Parents/guardians in England do not have to pay for school meals if they receive any of the following:

  • Income Support
  • Income-Based Jobseeker's Allowance
  • Income related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • Child Tax Credit, provided they are not entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual income (as assessed by HM Revenue & Customs) that does not exceed £16,190
  • Working Tax Credit 'run-on' - the payment someone may receive for a further four weeks after they stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
  • Guarantee element of State Pension Credit

Pupil Premium is an important payment for schools and a really good opportunity for eligible parents to get even more support for their children in schools.

If you have any questions or would like to know more about Pupil Premium funding and how it is being used to benefit your child, please speak to your child’s class teacher or the headteacher.

If you think your child may possibly be eligible for free school meals, even if you don't want your child to eat school meals, please call into the office to collect a claim form. Every child who is eligible generates valuable income for the school.
