Did you know?...

If your child is entitled to Free School Meals, the school will receive £1,320 Pupil Premium money to spend on him/her.


What if I qualify but don't want my child to have school dinners? This is completely fine, they can bring a packed lunch but we still urge you to register your child so that they receive the £1,320.


How will we spend the £1,320 on your child?

  • We will subsidise the full cost of school visits (excluding Drayton Manor Park).
  • Your child will receive a Free School Meal (saving you more than £350 a year).
  • Provide a range of educational games and reading books to borrow and take home.
  • We will provide extra support in class.


The money is designed to support your child's achievement in all aspects of school life.
