Pupil Premium

COVID-19 Update – 11.15 27 March 2020

If parents/carers living in North Yorkshire are on a low income they may qualify for Free School Meals (to apply for Free School Meals you can complete the form at (https://www.northyorks.gov.uk/free-school-meals). In addition to securing free school meals, this would also result in the school receiving Pupil Premium funding from central government which we can then utilise to support your child with additional educational opportunities. Go to this website for more details: https://www.gov.uk/apply-free-school-meals

As a school we want to open up all opportunities to all students and do not want financial difficulties to be a barrier to these opportunities for pupils. We would always welcome dialogue with parents/carers to discuss how we can offer support in these circumstances. Please feel free to contact our Pupil Premium lead in school Mrs Hubbard (v.hubbard@tgs.starmat.uk) or your child’s tutor or House Leader to discuss these matters further.


In accordance with our pledge for ‘every student to be given opportunities to grow academically, personally and culturally’, we provide additional individual support strategies to enable every student, however financially disadvantaged, to:

  • enjoy their time at school;
  • improve their levels of attainment and progress;
  • access our extra-curricular provision.
