Free School Meals & Pupil Premium Funding

Did you know…


...all children at Little Gonerby are eligible for a free school meal up to the end of Year 2 under the Universal Infant Free School Meal programme? But in addition to this, many children are eligible for additional funding through the government’s Pupil Premium grant to schools.


...our school receives valuable additional funding for every child who is eligible for Pupil Premium? This funding enables us to provide staff, resources and support for all eligible children to support their progress- your child could benefit from additional support for reading, writing, maths with a teacher or teaching assistant, social and emotional support including counselling with our school counsellor or support from our Family Support Advisor, help with extra-curricular activities, free milk, and a wide range of other support - see the Pupil Premium section of our website under Key Information to find out how much funding we receive and how we spent it over the last few years.


...your child may be eligible for this funding? We believe at least 30 children in our school may be eligible but not receiving this funding at the moment. School cannot carry out these checks or submit applications, only parents can do this. We cannot provide all these additional support activities without this funding.
