The staff and Governors of Forest Hill School are committed to ensuring that our provision meets the needs of all our pupils so they have the best possible opportunity to make excellent progress in their learning.
Forest Hill welcomes and shares the government’s desire to tackle all forms of disadvantage and as a school we work tirelessly to ensure inclusion and equal access to all learners.
The Pupil Premium Grant was introduced in 2011. It is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England designed to help disadvantaged pupils of all abilities perform better and close the gap between them and their peers.
Students attract Pupil Premium funding if they are:
- In receipt of free school meals (FSM) or have been in receipt of FSM in the last six years
- Looked after by the local authority
- Children of armed service personnel
At Forest Hill School, this money is used to fund a range of activities, interventions and staffing to provide support and provision to our disadvantaged students. We are committed to raising standards, closing the gaps and continuous school improvement.
Free School Meals
A hot lunch at Forest Hill School costs £2.57 per day. Your child is entitled to free school meals if your combined annual household income is below £16,190 (as assessed by HMRC) and you are receiving specific government benefits.
