The following is a summary of the way in which Hunter’s Bar Infant School is using the Pupil Premium funding to raise achievement for disadvantaged pupils.
The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 when schools were allocated funding for children from low-income families - eligible for free school meals, looked after children and those from families with parents in the Armed Forces.
There has never been a better time to apply for Free School Meals. We would encourage all those eligible to take up this opportunity. Please don’t hesitate to contact our school office team who can provide you with further information and discreet support to do so.
