Pupil Premium Strategy  

Our Pupil Premium Lead in school is Miss Kelly.

Please find the link to the Pupil Premium Strategy Document below. 

The document includes information on our school's Pupil Premium grant allocation amount (and recovery premium for the 2021 to 2022 academic year) funding to help improve the attainment of our disadvantaged pupils,  a summary of the main barriers to educational achievement faced by eligible pupils at the school, how we will spend the allocated amount to overcome those barriers and the reasons for our approach. The document was shared with our full governing body in December 2021.

We will publish the 2022-23 Pupil Premium Document by December 31st 2022. This document will include a review of the impact of the previous years expenditure. The amount of pupil premium allocated for 2022-23, a summary of the main barriers to educational achievement faced by eligible pupils at Dane Royd, how we will spend the funding to address those barriers and the evidence that supports our approach and how the impact will be measured.

The Pupil Premium Strategy is reviewed by the Governing Body, this will next be reviewed on 19th October 2022.



Our Pupil Premium review was on 24th November 2017, it was attended by Governors and SLT members.

Eligibility for Pupil Premium


The information below outlines the criteria for the Pupil Premium Grant.

Provided your child is attending school full time they will qualify if you receive:

  • Income Support

  • Income Based Job Seekers Allowance

  • Guarantee element of State Pension Credit

  • Child Working Tax Credit with no working Tax Credit and have an income, as assessed by the Inland Revenue, that does not exceed £16,190

  • Support under Part V1 of the Immigration & Asylum Act 1999

  • Employment Support Allowance (Income Related) (ESA-IR)


All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 receive free school meals as provided under the Universal Free School Meals programme.  However some children may be entitled to receive free school meals if their parents are in receipt of certain benefits. If your child is eligible for free school meals, it is important that you make an application even if your child is not going to have the school lunch.  This is because schools receive a ‘Pupil Premium’ – an extra payment for each eligible child which can be spent on useful services.


NB Registering for free school meals will not affect any other benefits you are claiming.

If you think you may qualify, application forms are available from the School Office.

Eligibility for the Early Years Pupil Premium

How to check if your child is eligible for the Early Years Pupil Premium.
