The following link from Wirral Council’s website explains whether you can register your child for the pupil premium funding available to schools:
Please check the eligibility criteria. It is important to apply even if your child receives a free school meal as this also registers your child for the pupil premium funding available to schools.
If you don’t apply, the school will miss out on funding which could go towards equipment, resources, trips or uniform discounts.
If you child prefers to take a packed lunch or make other arrangements, you still need to register for school meals for your school to receive the pupil premium funding.
