Pupil Premium and Free School Meals

By law we must publish this information on-line

Did you know that claiming free school meals really helps the school?
The government gives schools extra funding for children in families where it is hard to make ends meet. This money is called the Pupil Premium. The amount of money we get is based on the number of children having free school meals. Many of the pupils at Dartington get free school meals, so your child won't be alone.

If you get any of the following support payments your child/ren may be entitled to free school meals:

Children under five who are in full time education may also be entitled to receive free school meals.
Do you think your child is entitled to free school meals? There is a short form to apply. We can answer your questions at the school office, and help you fill in the form. It really will be a help to school, as well as to your pocket!

Please remember that all information that is passed to school is held in the strictest confidence, and any information regarding the eligibility of your child to Pupil Premium funding will be of huge benefit to our school.

Governors take their role of overseeing Pupil Premium Provision extremely seriously and work closely with the school to do so. Our current Governor with Pupil Premium responsibility is Lucy Woollett who took over from Anne Lamble in June 2018.
