Mead Road Infant School receives a ‘Pupil Premium Grant’ from the Government for each child that is eligible for free school meals (‘FSM’), or has been eligible at any time in the last six years. This money is allocated to initiatives to ensure pupils reach their full potential, both academically and socially.
Obtaining all of the grant that we are entitled to on account of our children being, or having been, eligible for FSM is very important to us and if you think your child is eligible for FSM, please contact the school to discuss this in complete confidence.
Number of FSM children for the academic year 2014-2015 14 £18,204
Number of FSM children for the academic year 2015-2016 8 £10,335
