Free School Meals
From September 2014, all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 in state-funded schools in England will be eligible for free school meals.
Extra funding for your child's education
The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the achievement level of pupils. This means your child's school will receive an additional £1,300 every year for six years from the Government to support their education if your child would have been entitled to free school meals because of your family income. This money must be spent on your child, but it is for the school to decide how it is spent.
Waltham Forest Council are asking all parents and carers of children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 whose children attend school in Waltham Forest to complete a universal infant free school meals form and return it to their child's school. They will then be able to confirm throughout the year whether the school is entitled to the additional Pupil Premium funding for your child.
How we spend the money
In 2014/2015, Greenleaf Primary School received approximately £140,000 in Pupil Premium funding. See the Learning / Pupil Premium page for a detailed breakdown of how this was spent, and to read our Pupil Premium Policy.
