West Berkshire schools missing out on pupil premium

Schools in an area of Berkshire are losing out on up to £350,000 a year according to the local authority.

West Berkshire Council say parents are not registering their children as eligible for free meals, meaning schools are not able to claim pupil premium funds.

The government introduced universal free school meals in 2015, leading to confusion among parents who now have access to free meals without having to register.
