Pupil Premium

Application for Pupil Premium/Free School Meals Funding


As part of ensuring equality of provision across our schools, Our Lady of Lourdes CMAT has teamed up with Derbyshire County Council to confirm whether our academies are entitled to claim Pupil Premium Funding for your child. The Pupil Premium provides extra funding within the school for additional equipment and support. Pupils eligible for Pupil Premium, due to economic circumstances, will also be eligible for Free School Meals.  Staff within your child’s school will be able to advise further on this.


We are therefore asking all parents and guardians of children who will be attending one of our Our Lady of Lourdes CMAT Schools in any class including Nursery Classes (aged 3 or 4 years old) to complete the online form at (please note, this redirects to a Derbyshire County Council form) or complete and return the form below.


Please complete all sections of this form and return it to your school who will forward it to Derbyshire County Council for processing in accordance with GDPR and the Council’s Information Management policy.


Schools will be advised on the results of the eligibility status and any changes to this status on a monthly basis.
