Pupil Premium and Recovery Premium

What is the Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium Grant is paid to schools to accelerate progress and improve the outcomes of the following student groups:

  • Children in care.
  • Children who have been permanently placed from care.
  • Children who receive Free School Meals (FSM).
  • Children who have a parent actively serving in the UK armed forces.


Free School Meals

Free School Meals (FSM) are a valuable way of your child receiving a nourishing meal during the day whilst also allowing the College to receive additional funding to improve the education and outcomes of disadvantaged students.  

Hertfordshire County Council have published some helpful information on criteria and how to apply for this valuable benefit. We encourage parents to check to establish whether or not their child/children qualify and, where appropriate, to complete the application process. Once submitted and approved, payment is made directly to the College.
