Pupil Premium


Did you know that if you are entitled to one of the benefits listed below, the school is entitled to extra money to spend on your child, at the moment this is £1,320 per child per year. This money is called the Pupil Premium.

At Kexborough we use the pupil premium for a variety of things which include:-

  • Access to additional support, either 1 to 1 or part of a small group to help in reading, writing and maths
  • Purchasing extra computer equipment such as ipads for your child to use
  • Purchasing extra resources in order to help your child
  • Subsidise school activities, such as educational trips.

At the moment any child in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a school meal free of charge. Once your child enters Year 3 school meals become chargeable.  At the moment this is £1.80 per day (over a school year this adds up to £340).  If your application for pupil premium is successful and you are still in receipt of one of the benefits listed on the attached form you will continue to receive free school meals for your child.
