Pupil Premium

Parents and carers claiming some benefits can claim free school meals for any of their children who are registered at a Staffordshire school and who would normally be at school at lunch time. School meals are a good way to ensure that your child eats well at lunchtime, and you can save yourself time and money. Even if you don't want your children to have the meals, claiming them helps their school. The more eligible parents who claim meals, the more funding the school receives for Pupil Premium.

In England, children at Key Stages 1-4 in state-funded schools are entitled to receive Free School Meals if their parents or carers are in receipt of any of the following benefits:

  • Income Support
  • Income-based jobseekers Allowance
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
