All about the Pupil Premium

Do you know whether the Pupil Premium is being paid for the child you are raising - and if not, do you know whether it should be?

Re: SGO

odonovan26, I'm sorry to have let this pass for so long without coming back to comment, and it may be that you have come to a decision about whether to apply for parental responsibility (PR) in the meantime.
