A reminder about the availability of Pupil Premium:
Are you in receipt of any of the following benefits?
- Income Support
- Income Based Jobseeker’s Allowance
- Pension Credit (Guarantee Credit element) or (Income Related)
- Employment Support Allowance
- Child Tax Credit
The Lea Primary School & Nursery is able to claim a £1300 grant from the government each year called the Pupil Premium for children whose parents or carers receive any of these benefits.
All children who qualify for Pupil Premium are entitled to a free school meal. However, even if your child is in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 and already receives a ‘universal’ free school meal, it is still worth applying for Pupil Premium as it can help with other things such as your child’s clubs, trips, uniform and other educational resources.
If your circumstances have changed and you think you may be eligible, you can apply direct at www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/freeschoolmeals or call 0300 1234048 (it’s quick and easy). If you would like us to complete the registration for you please contact the school office. The information you supply will be treated confidentially and destroyed once processed.
