This money is allocated to initiatives to ensure pupils reach their full potential, both academically and socially.
If your child does not have Free School Meals, but may be eligible because of your family’s income level, please contact the school’s office (in confidence) to register them. Even if you do not wish them to have the meals, this would mean the school could still claim Pupil Premium funding that may be used to help your child. We also assure parents that all matters regarding use of the Special Fund are treated with discretion and in confidence.

Deneholm Primary School’s provision for children who are entitled to pupil premium
It is our aim that pupils at Deneholm will have equal opportunities and support to succeed so that they reach their potential. We focus on individual needs- emotional, pastoral, educational and welfare, so that pupils have full access to the school day, are fully ready for learning each day and get support with learning that they need. This requires flexibility in using our pupil premium funding so that we constantly review our spending based on need and impact.
Information on our spending, and the impact of spending in the academic year 2018/2019 can be found here:
