Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools to support disadvantaged pupils. Egerton Church of England Primary School also receives additional funding for cared for children and for every pupil who has received free school meals over the past 5 years. 


This academic year we have been allocated £31,680 in pupil premium.  We have 19 pupils who are receiving pupil premium which is 9.8% of the cohort.


We regularly up-date our records to make sure we have an accurate account of the school population.  However, if your circumstances change please inform the school office.

If you are in receipt of any of the following your child is eligible for free school meals:

  • Income Support
  • Income based jobseeker’s 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 and Customs, that does not exceed £16,190
  • The guarantee element of state pension credit
  • Employment support allowance


If you are unsure of whether or not you are entitled to free school meals or if you would like further help to apply we are happy to assist.  The school can check for you using the confidential Eligibility Checking Service.  If you would like us to check for you, please speak to Mrs Martin (school office)  in confidence, and provide the information requested below:

  • Claimant (i.e. parent) NI Number (or)
  • NASS Reference (for asylum seekers)
  • Claimant (i.e. parent) Date of Birth
  • Claimant (i.e. parent) Legal Surname


Our Family Liaison Officer (FLO) Mrs Lisa French is also available for a confidential meeting where she can offer further advice as to what you may be eligible for and how the pupil premium funding could help your child.


Our Pupil Premium Strategy has been developed using published documents such as The Sutton Trust - EEF Teaching and Learning Toolkit.
