A new service for helping schools to maximise their claim for Pupil Premium funding
We are introducing a new service to help schools to claim missing pupil premium funding for Free School Meals.
With the introduction of free Infant meals for all, many parents have not applied for Free School Meals. For other reasons parents across different year groups do not apply for eligible Free School Meals.
Last year Haringey estimate that a minimum of 1,200 pupils in Haringey’s primary, secondary, special and nursery schools who were eligible for Free School Meals were not claiming.
This roughly equates to £1.2m of unclaimed pupil premium funds in Haringey each year.
