Free School Meals
The Pupil Premium is government funding which is allocated to support children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM). It is allocated on a yearly basis.
At Diamond Wood Community Academy Pupil Premium funding is targeted to narrow the gap in attainment.
Registering for Free School Meals
If you are in receipt of benefits and think you may be eligible for Free School Meals, register on the Kirklees website:
Please note that all Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children receive Universal Infant Free School Meals.
Universal Infant Free School Meals (UIFSM) is funding by the government to offer free school meals to pupils in Reception, Year 1, and Year 2 only.
Registering for Free School Meals is different to Universal Free School Meals. Your child may only be entitled to Free School Meals if you are in receipt of the benefits listed on the Kirklees Council web page highlighted above.
