Pupil Premium & Catch Up Funding

Pupil Premium

The school receives additional funding for those students who fall within the below categories or have done so at any time within the last six years.

  • those who qualify for free school meals
  • are receiving a child pension from the Ministry of Defence
  • are a looked after child
  • are adopted from care or have entered into special guardianship
  • have a residence order
  • children from the families of services personnel (at any stage in the last four years)

Please click on the documents below for more information on Pupil Premium at de Stafford School.

Universal Catch-Up Fund

As a school, we have received funding equivalent to £80 per student for the 2020/21 academic year. The government intention is that the funding is spent to achieve the goal of “schools getting back on track and teaching a normal curriculum as quickly as possible” following the period of remote learning between March and July. We have the flexibility to spend this additional money in a way that best meets individual contexts and circumstances but there is a recognition that disadvantaged and vulnerable groups will have been hardest hit by the disruption to their education. As such, intervention strategies will target these students specifically.

We are accountable for ensuring the money is spent wisely, based on a clear assessment of need and has a demonstrable impact on addressing learning gaps or pastoral concerns. The effectiveness of the use of funds will be scrutinised by the School Standards Board (SSB) and GLF Trustees.

In consultation with the other secondary schools within the GLF multi-academy trust, we have produced a plan which documents how we intend to spend the universal catch-up fund, a copy of which can be accessed here.

Free School Meals

In order to be eligible to apply for Free School Meals parents/guardians must be in receipt of one of the following:

  • Income Support
  • Income Based Job Seekers Allowance
  • Income related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under the Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The Guarantee element of State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit, provided they are not entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual income (as assessed by HM Revenue & Customs) that does not exceed £16,190
  • If you receive WORKING TAX CREDIT you do not qualify even if you receive Child Tax Credit and your income is below  £16,190
  • Working Tax Credit 'run on' - the payment someone may receive for a further four weeks after they stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
