Pupil Premium

3rd July 2014

Did you know … just registering your child for Free School Meals means that the school gets extra money?

Register now to make sure your child doesn’t miss out.

Many of you may already have seen in the news or heard from school that from September 2014 all children in reception, year 1 and year 2 can have a free school meal which is not means tested.

What you may not know however is that the Government is giving money to schools to help children from lower income families do their very best. This funding is called a ‘Pupil Premium’.

For every child registered Willow Green Academy will get £935 this year and £1300 from next year.

With this money we could provide more interventions to accelerate children’s academic progress as well as interventions to develop self-esteem, self-confidence and social emotional skills.

At Willow Green Academy we offer subsidised trips and music lessons, free breakfast club and free milk for all pupil premium children. There are also other benefits.
