The Pupil Premium is additional funding provided to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. This included pupils who are entitled to free school meals; those looked after by the local authority and children of armed service personnel.
At Rainbow Primary, we want all children to be successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens, helping to prepare them for the next stage in their lives, and beyond to adulthood. It is essential that all children, regardless of their economic background, race, religion or gender, are given equal opportunity to develop the skills needed to be happy and successful. At Rainbow Primary we are determined to ensure that all of our pupils are given every chance to achieve their full potential.
You can check your child’s eligibility for Pupil Premium or continued free school meals through Bradford councils online system. Click here to check.
You will need to enter your name, address, national insurance number or asylum support service number. In addition, you will need to provide your child’s name, date of birth and identify the school they are attending.
Parents/guardians in England do not have to pay for school meals if they receive any of the following:
Pupil Premium is an important payment for schools and a really good opportunity for eligible parents to get even more support for their children in schools.
If you think your child may possibly be eligible for free school meals, even if you don’t want your child to eat school meals, please apply online or call into the office for a claim form. Every child who is eligible generates valuable income for the school. If you need assistance applying please contact the school office where we will be happy help.
We strongly encourage all eligible parents/carers to apply for this status. No one will know who has registered and it will not affect any other benefits being claimed.
Any children who are entitled to free schools meals, whether they take them up or not, means that our school is given extra funding to help support our pupils needs.

To monitor progress on attainment, new measures have been included in the performance tables that will capture the achievement of pupils covered by the Pupil Premium. At Rainbow Primary we will measure the impact of pupil premium through data collection, the monitoring and tracking of each year group’s attainment and through regular pupil progress meetings.
When selecting pupils for intervention groups, the school will look at all pupils across the school. There are some pupils who are not eligible for PP who will benefit from these groups if their needs are similar and we believe progress can be made towards individual targets.
Pupil Premium Funding and the impact of this is a regular item at Trust meetings.
