Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium at Heage Primary School

Pupil Premium is an amount of money paid to schools in order to support children who are entitled to Free School Meals (this is not the same as universal free school meals which are available to all infant children).  There is often a gap in achievement between children that are most and least advantaged in the country and this money is used by schools to close that gap. You can check if you are entitled to Free School Meals.
