Dear Parents and Carers, At Upton Junior School we want to make sure that we are providing your child with the best education and support we can. If your child is eligible for ‘free school meals’ and you register them for this, we’ll receive extra funding called ‘Pupil Premium’. We use this extra money to improve the educational provision and resources at the school. Pupil premium funding from the government is given to schools to help pupils reach their full potential, regardless of their background or financial situation. It’s provided for pupils who: • Are registered for free school meals • Have been registered for free school meals at any point in the past 6 years • Are, or have been, in care • Have parents in the armed forces For every child awarded Pupil Premium, Upton Junior School receives £1,320 each year. For every child awarded the Armed forces Pupil Premium element, Upton will receive £300. See the attached letter for the form or pop into the School Office with a copy or help with the online form. https://www.kent.gov.uk/education-and-children/schools/free-school-meals
