Don’t let them miss out on Pupil Premium Funding

From September 2014 ALL infant children, those in reception, year 1 and Year 2, will be entitled to free school meals. However, if your child would have been entitled to free school meals under the old system because you are receiving qualifying benefits, the government will give Corsham Regis a Pupil Premium of £1,300.
