What is Pupil Premium?
The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools to support disadvantaged pupils. Rosendale School receives additional funding for cared for children and for every pupil who has received free school meals over the past 5 years. Please follow the link to the Department for Education to find out more about this funding.
We up-date our records annually to make sure we have an accurate account of the school population. However, if your circumstances change please inform the school office.
If you are in receipt of any of the following your child is eligible for free school meals:
- Income Support
- Income based jobseeker’s allowance
- Support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
- Child tax credit, provided they are not entitled to working tax credit and have an annual income, as assessed by HM Revenue and Customs, that does not exceed £16,105
- The guarantee element of state pension credit
- Employment support allowance
If you are unsure of whether or not you are entitled to free school meals, the school can check for you using the confidential Eligibility Checking Service. If you would like us to check for you please provide the information requested below.

In line with our vision and values, Rosendale seeks to ensure the effectiveness of its use of the Pupil Premium. As a result, we have based our spending priorities on high quality research such as the EEF Toolkit, The Sutton Trust-EEF Teaching and Learning Toolkit is an accessible summary of educational research which provides guidance for teachers and schools on how to use their resources to improve the attainment of disadvantaged pupils. You can find out more about this by downloading the Education Endowment Foundation toolkit below.
