The government believes that the Pupil Premium, funding which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the inequalities sometimes experienced by pupils from less affluent backgrounds. There is a wealth of research that suggests that pupils from more deprived backgrounds achieve less well when compared to their more affluent peers. Pupil Premium funding is allocated to schools. It is the responsibility of each school to decide how the funding is spent. At Ryefield Primary School we work hard to to ensure that the money has maximum impact.
From September 2014, all children in EYFS and KS1 are entitled to Free School Meals, regardless of their benefits, we would encourage you to apply anyway to ensure you child receives the benefits from Pupil Premium. Please note that your child does not have to have school dinners even if they are registered for Free School Meals.
Please complete a form, provided by the School Office and bring evidence of the benefit you received, dated within the last 3 months.
Please be aware the if you receive Working Tax Credit then you do not qualify.
