Is my child eligible for PP funding?

Your child may be eligible for free school meals – and accordingly Pupil Premium Funding – if you receive any of the following benefits:

 

  • Universal Credit (provided you have an annual net earned income of no more than £7,400, as assessed by earning from up to three of your most recent assessment periods). 
  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseeker's Allowance (JSA)
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The guarantee element of Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (with no Working Tax Credit) with an annual gross income of no more than £16,190 
  • Working Tax Credit run-on (paid for the four weeks after the person stops qualifying for Working Tax Credit)

 

Please note, all children in Reception, Year 1 and 2 qualify for free school meals, regardless of their family income, but only the children who would have qualified for free meals under the above income-based criteria will receive the additional Pupil Premium funding.
