Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Grant (2020 – 2021]

The Pupil Premium Grant is an allocation of additional money received from the Government in order to help key groups of children do well in school. These groups include any child who has been in receipt of Free School Meals in the last 6 years, children in care or children of Armed Services Families.

The intention of Pupil Premium Funding is to enable schools to offer direct support and targeted intervention to the intended groups of pupils to aim to narrow gaps in pupil achievement. The support may involve additional staff 1:1 time, staffing support for groups of children, funding to support enrichment e.g. extra-curricular and curricular opportunities, purchasing of additional resources to enhance learning or other activities that help raise attainment and achievement and help children progress.

The impact of Pupil Premium Funding is displayed in the table below. Pupil Premium funding and reviews of impact are discussed regularly at with staff and with the Governing Body.  Confidentiality and anonymity is always maintained.

Additional information can be found upon the Department for Education website at: . Any parents who are unsure if they qualify for Free School Meals should speak with the Head Teacher at the school or look on the Derbyshire County Council website at .

Whilst EYFS – Y2 pupils are now in receipt of Universal free School meals it is still important to advise school if you think your child may be eligible for the free school meal grant, because the school will then receive additional funds to support and enhance learning.

The impact on educational attainment of pupils in receipt of the ‘pupil premium grant’ is assessed using the school’s internal data tracking system.
