Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Statement 2020-21

The Government provides pupil premium funding which is additional to main school funding.  Its purpose is to help address national inequalities between the achievements of children eligible for free school meals or children in care when compared with their peers.

In the 2020-21 financial year schools will receive the following funding for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years.

£1345 for primary aged pupils            £955 for secondary aged pupils

Darlington Virtual School will also receive £2345 for each looked after pupil who:

  • Has been looked after for one day or more
  • Was adopted from care, or left care under a special guardianship order or a residence order.

Darlington Virtual School (and any out of area virtual schools) allocates this money to the Rise Carr College according to the numbers of looked after children on roll during the academic year.

In 2019/20 Rise Carr College is forecast to receive £31,035 in Pupil Premium Funding.

In 2020/21 we expect to receive a similar amount of funding based on the students who attend Rise Carr.

During this academic year, children across the country have experienced a level of disruption to their education that is previously unheard of as a result of the Covi-19 pandemic. It is the most vulnerable and disadvantaged children who have, in many cases, been hardest hit. Pupil premium and other funding sources are being used to make every effort to ensure that these children have not and are not being left behind.
