Pupil Premium

Registering For Free School Meals:

Please visit http://www.cheshireeast.gov.uk/schools/free_school_meals.aspx to find out if you are eligible. We encourage all eligible families to have their free meals. Entitlement to free school meals enables The Dingle to receive additional funding which will enable our school to further improve standards.

Pupil Premium Statement

The Pupil Premium is Government funding provided to schools which is additional to main school funding. The Pupil Premium is intended to help each school boost the attainment of disadvantaged children and reduce the gap between the highest and lowest achievers. In 2011-12 schools were allocated Pupil Premium funding for children from low-income families who were eligible for free school meals or had been Looked- After (in care),continuously for more than six months. The premium also applied to children whose parents were serving in the Armed Forces.    

In 2012-13, Pupil Premium Funding was extended to any pupils who had been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last 6 years. It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility. However, schools are to be held accountable for how they used the additional funding to support and show the impact of the funding for the pupils covered by the premium.
